tbh this past winter the only thing that kept me alive was the knowledge that my cats would be thrown outside and fed crappy food if i werent around. i stuck around for the cats.

that being said, superj's advice might still work confuzzled. i was just sharing my perspective bc what might work for some might not work for others
do you mind if i ask you what would help now? like if there's even small things like bringing food or watching a movie with you or something?

good question! i didnt even think abt that.

so usually if im feeling like people are better off without me, i tend to self isolate. however, if i'm just feeling really bad and anxious , sometimes ill reach out to my friends and ask them to distract me. it helps both online and/or in real life for them to just talk to me about anything thats not particularly negative or overly positive. just neutral stuff. like talk to me about a movie or a tv show you recently saw, your newest project, what youre reading, something cute or funny that your pets did, even just describing what you did today. literally anything to distract me and calm me down.

as always, ask your friend if that kind of stuff would help bc although it might help me it might not help them. hope this is helpful to u

Maybe someone can answer this question:

What should you do if someone you know is talking about killing themself
and everyone else you know is making fun and not realizing that they have feelings too? idk. Because, it could be serious, or it could not be so serious.
Maybe i'm over reacting.

@sally just tell them that they're loved and you'd miss them if they weren't there, even if it sounds like a joke it would still help.

tell your friend that you are not going to judge them and that you are there to listen if they ever need to talk to someone. even if everyone else makes fun of your friend, you can still be there for your friend and your friend may be grateful to have someone who takes them seriously.

i wish my friends gave me nice advice like "dont worry. go to sleep and you'll feel better" or something like that but when they give me advice i feel like theyre criticizing me more than anything.
