Continuing with my morbid posts as of late — I pose to all of you a question.
Do you think it’s normal for someone with suicidal ideation to alienate the people closest to them?
I can think of reasons which make sense of this type of distancing.
If you alienate everyone you care about then it’s easier to:
- Justify not having a reason to live.
- Feel like everything truly is hopeless.
- Accept the idea that everyone is truly against you.
- Make it easier to “leave” everyone behind.
I keep thinking about one reason, specifically, though.
If one can convince oneself that they’re the one alienating everyone they ever cared about — they can alleviate the pain that comes from the truth: everyone’s just not into whether you live or die.
As always, be good to each other.
