Why would someone come to think that suicide is the only solution?
A person who has suicidal thoughts has tried all the strategies they know to reduce their suffering, but unsuccessfully. They may then feel despairing and discouraged, which leads them to think about suicide.
The person becomes “blind” because of their problems. They have a feeling that there are no more solutions to ease their pain, which has become intolerable.
By asking for help, a person with suicidal thoughts may see their problems from a different angle and 👀 identify other solutions that might help.
