    Default If you've ever been suicidal would you've wanted someone to bring religion up

    this poll is completely anonymous but if you want to give your reasons why or why not feel free to post.

    I would not, because when I was i felt a ton of guilt and shame and that would've just pissed me off and made me feel more guilt and not actually make me less suicidal.

    edit: since people are answering what they'd do for other people, i'm NOT asking that. I'm asking what your preference is for you personally. I know it depends on the individual.

    I feel like bringing up religion would be condescending especially since Christianity in general (I know that's not the only religion, but the most likely way someone would bring up religion for me) suicide is not looked upon favorably. I would only bring up religion if the said person was super religious.

    I've been suicidal many times before, but often what stopped me was the gruesome Islamic descriptions of hell. I'm still Muslim, so I still wouldn't. I've tried to get around that before by saying, "I'll only take enough sleeping pills to make me go into a coma" but then again, my family could always pull the plug......

    If someone brought it up I would shut down entirely and either leave, or make them leave.

    I would want them to bring up MY religion.
    Whether it's something to bring up is a case by case issue depending on the individual and the situation.

    Well if anything it'd expiediate the resolution, whatever that may be. Just throw in some right wing politics and you'd be sure to end it one way more then the other.

    NO. That would do absolutely nothing and would probably drive me even further to off myself.

    I would not want them to bring up religion or God at the most vulnerable period of my life. I just want them to listen to what I have to say, and just let me be myself.
