    I never considered myself mentally ill but I've been hospitalized more then a few times for things like this between 15 and 18. It's true theres a tendency to keep it all in, but for me instead of acting on it through an actual, my whole value system would invert itself (stuff I hated became stuff I loved, embracing negativity, ect) which is an ugly thing to see. One thing that dissuaded me when I was a kid was the prospect of an afterlife, even though I logically didnt believe in it. Nothing scared me more then killing myself only to have to keep living, which sounds weird.

    "There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide."- Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus

    This book pushes the 'Screw that' button, which is also referred to as Fi, channeling the anger from the self towards the system.

    Yeah, this.

    When I'm depressed enough, I fantasize about death as a way to escape these awful feelings- of loneliness, shame, or whatever I'm feeling at the time. The feelings can be so intense that it feels like you could never recover. But somewhere in the back of my mind, in the subconscious even, I know that I will, so I would never consider doing it in reality.

    INFP's would not broadcast their intentions. they would just do it without a word.

    True. I would never, EVER do that type of thing.

    Nor do I think I would ever commit suicide. I've never woke up in the morning and thought about killing myself that day.

    But if I did, I promise you that I wouldn't go crying to anyone about it. I'd either do it or keep my mouth shut.

    What a depressing topic.

    The thought has raced across my mind once or twice.

    But only in a temporary and fleeting manner.

    From dictionary.com...
    Viable:
    1. capable of living.
    2. Physiology.a. physically fitted to live.
    b. (of a fetus) having reached such a stage of development as to be capable of living, under normal conditions, outside the uterus.
    3. Botany. able to live and grow.

    I see suicide as a nonviable option (tehe), though perhaps useful for some obnoxious INFPs

    It's comforting to me to know I'm always having option. To know that I can just go the other way if thing's becoming too much for me to go on. Maybe I'm a loser for thinking like this but I just can't help it.

    I've thought about it but only for curiosity's sake.
    "What would people think?"
    "Who would find me?"
    "Which friend would find out first?"

    All of those morbid things INFPs think about.
