Active suicidal ideation involves clear and precise ideas about suicide or plans to commit suicide. But suicidal ideation can also adopt a passive or less-defined form. Perhaps you do not have a formal plan for your death, but you:
- Frequently contemplate death and dying
- Have considered several ways to die
- Consider yourself unworthy of life
- Wish you could just give up and die
Constant thoughts about death and suicide, either active or passive can make you feel burdened, despondent, and unclear of where to find support.
Additionally, discussing these feelings can be difficult. For one, you may not know how to begin sharing them with others. And you may also be concerned about their possible responses:
“Why would you desire to die? You have a successful career, a significant other, and a lot of people who care about you.”
“But you aren’t depressed.”
“I can’t believe you would subject your family to such suffering.”
Many people are unaware that suicidal ideation is fairly prevalent. Based on the data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 12 million adults in the United States had serious suicidal thoughts in 2019.
These ideas can also occur in the absence of depression or any other mental health condition. Frequently, suicidal thoughts indicate that you are suffering more misery and pain than you can handle.
So how to stop feeling suicidal? Suicidal thoughts may arise when you cannot see a way out of your sorrow, which is a reasonable reaction to grief and misery. However, you do have many options for receiving assistance with managing these significant suicidal thoughts.
