The Top Ten
1 Getting bullied

I've made several attempts to shoot myself with a gun because I was bullied for being a late bloomer, and one of those bastards even kicked me in the face and I got a nose bleed. But I stopped myself. I'm 22 by the way. - Joshtition24

It's sad in this day and age, people can't get it together. They mess with people, pick on them, steal from them, and make them feel there is no hope. Then people spread rumors about you and get nobody to like you, then you have the pressure of School and the stupid people in this world. This is one of the many reasons I wanna die, but I'm too weak to even relieve myself of all this pain. I don't want my parents or my family to be crushed. I don't even care about almost anything but music and being alone, anymore. Then there's the fact I get angry easily so no one talks to me. Someone please help me.

Yes! Yes! Most victims of bullying commit suicide by teenage years! And this is true, many kids have good thoughts for the future like they dream to build a flying car, cure for cancer, an airplane that can go to space, but HERE COMES THE BULLIES! Wrecking dreams and happiness so they will be the ones who are popular and theyr'e called but losers for the future. I have been bullied for years and my greatest enemy, he made me lose comfort, lose confidence, and he made my life worse. Every single thoughts, every single words, EVERY SINGLE ACTIONS! HE PICKS ON IT AND HE KILLED ME!

I think bullying is the number one reason people commit suicide because over 6,078 kids commit suicide because of it and 7 to 9 percent of the bullies most likely to commit suicide because they didn't want to be blamed for the death of the person who committed suicide because of the bullying.

2 Failing to get into a good school

I failed to get in forest

3 Teased by siblings

My little brother says rude things about my stuff like "Who would waste five hours *1 minute* watching that? "
"It would have had taken you shorter if you had just drawn in your original art style."
He also annoys me by yelling out triggering words and T.V. shows.
I can't believe I'm saying this but sadly a triggering T.V. show to me is a certain hasbro show on netflix that is not my little pony.


You should get it now. But anyway he can't leave me alone, he is very mean, and he is also rude and selfish.

I'm kind of sensitive but my brother doesn't care. He keeps on testing me.

My brother's personality changed DRAMATICALLY.

From helpful and nice, to selfish and rude.

I'm still seeking help to this day

always, my brother is always there, bullying me, if I dare touch him I get anything that brings the slightest bit of joy into my horrible life taken away.

That's basically my life

This one was my reason. and yes, I did say WAS. as in not anymore.

4 They feel as no one loves them

I'm depressed. I have anorexia. I hope that someone will even LIKE me one bit someday. But I know that'll NEVER happen... no one cares about me... my life is heading towards suicide...

They always get mad at me for not completing my schoolwork but when my sister does the same thing they sit and help her but shout at me and walk away.

My mother never, sees the good things in me, only the worst. She believes what she does is right, I just hate her and myself. U want to die, quick and easy.

I feel like my parents don't love me because they told me I was only the experiment child, nothing more.

5 Family pressure

Mom has been telling me to die already and I'm not even sick. Dad said he would pull the trigger himself. Brother said he would if I didn't

My parents can get so mad at me and make me so stressed that everyday I want to die

Family should be our one sanctuary not a living hell

Comparison between sisters and brothers.

6 Having evil parents

My parents abuse me physical, venally and emotionally, I don't kill myself because I have good friends and a notebook for all the things I want to do. it is a goal and I hate quitting.

Can't really have pure "evil" parents but you can have abusive ones

Yes deffinitley... not all parents are loving! Some kids have abusing and evil parents...

Do you know anyone who committed suicide because of this?

7 Stress

I wanted to kill myself in 6th grade because I was super stressed.

Honestly, true. Sad, but true

8 Death of a loved one

Two years ago my sister died. I was so upset. I was only ten years old. I'm nearly twelve now. The incident affected me to this very day. I cried so much and wouldn't talk to anyone. No one seemed to understand. What angered me most was that on the night of her death, my parents' friends came to support, but their kids were just using their phones and acting like nothing really happened. My brothers were just two of those hateful kids. One of them was eight years old, the other only two. A year later, I thought what it was like to die. I wasn't taking it seriously. But until last summer I hadn't realised how much I really wanted to join my sister in Heaven.

My mother and father are dead and I attempted suicide 8 times the day after. I take care of my 8 younger sisters and my older brother watches them if I'm sick. I watch (from oldest to youngest) Heidi, Tessa, Clara, Molly, Grace, Lydi, and my twin sisters Alexis and Alexia. My older Jason brother is my best friend, and he's my twin brother. I said older because he was born four minutes before me. But listen. Never give up hope because you will never now if you will live a good future, like what happened to me.

If your loved one dies, everything falls apart. You live in a world full of darkness and lost hope. There is nothing to live for because your only loved one is dead. You want to see your deceased loved one again, in heaven. But you can't. You didn't die yet. So you will die. On purpose. To see your loved one again. But don't lose hope. Your loved one is waiting for you, watching over you. Your loved one will want you to continue living a wonderful, happy life. So you will. Never give up hope. Keep loving.

- from personal experiences.

Death of a loved one is very hard on a young person who does not really understand why the loved one in not coming back

9 Depression

I know I should't be on this website but I'm 9 currently,and I fell in a deep hole of depression and anxiety is this normal no one likes me people avoid me EVERYONE ASKS "Why don't you talk much in class? "I feel worthless I really wanted to commit at age 7 I grabbed a knife and was about to stab myself but I didn't I was to scared of the consequences of my actions I still really want to commit.


Same I shouldn't be on this either but...

I'm only 10 and I'm already

Sayori would like to know your location.

10 Sexual orientation

Only 6/10 trans people don't kill themselves and after hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery it doesn't get better and even sadder is there is no evidence that it gets better when society accepts them.

LGBT people don't commit suicide because they're gay, bi, trans, etc. They commit suicide when nobody accepts them and when they hurt them.

The Contenders
11 Finding out that babies are created through sex

I'm not voting this up because I think it's true... actually, I resent this one. But here's a little message to the person who wrote "After learning this I want to die:"


Do you know what its like to be so depressed and full of hatred towards everything 24/7 that you feel the only solution is to end your life? To take your breath away forever, leave your family and friends broken and in shambles? To genuinely WANT, and will WILLINGLY put a GUN to your own HEAD because you are in such a bad state of mind that that is the only thing you think can end your crippling pain?

SUICDE. IS. NOT. A. JOKE. It HURTS. So STOP treating it like one.

Yes, the true horror. After learning this I wanna die

Okay now this is just turning into a joke list.

12 Lost all hope for living

I'm 10 and I already want to commit suicide my life has been way to hard and my parents are always fighting because of me. I just feel like they would be better off without me. I also cause my friends to fight. Sometimes I bang my head on a hard chair and smack myself in my room while the rest of my family is downstairs. I but at the same time I just wont be able to handle the pain of my death.

This is why I threatened to kill myself once. I waited for a car to come so I could die, but then my mother talked me out of it. She looked as if she were to cry, but I still want to commit suicide to this day. I hope I get a bad disease often so I could die. I lost hope for living by luck, friendship, poorness, and even my birthday, 12-14, because George Washington died on that day back in 1799. I was 9 when this happened.

I'm going to die soon and I'm only 10 watch for me on the news

I was super stressed when I was 11.

13 Homework

I got an IMPOSSIBLE assignment in middle school. It was 3 weeks overdue. My parents would force me to do it, but I had other assignments to do. I ended up getting poor grades. I just wanted to kill myself to be free.


if it is then I have a joke for you!:

justien beeber should get beaten alive from people who have the ebola virus (at it's peak).


a french boy hung himself from lockdown homework.

Suicide is not a joke I mean dang who the flick would wanna kill themselves over homework

It's very stressful and it can make you very sad when you're behind in classes.

14 School

I want to kill myself because school is the worst also because I'm adopted and treated terrible.!

If your teaher is horrible to you that can cause depression

The teachers treat you like dog feces if u don't do your work!

the cause of torture

the cause of stress

the cause of sleep deprivation

the cause of homework

the cause of suicide

and the cause of teachers trying to *help* you when they make the whole entire situation worse.

15 Parents comparing them to other kids

It's a really heart shatering thing to do to a kid cause then they feel as if they are not good enough.

My mom does that to me everyday

Hell that's one thing

experienced this but I can't compare meh parents to other parents.

16 Horrible childhood

I was born in 2000 with a disability, and I did suffer through my childhood and I still am. Every time in the 11th or 12th, when people talk to me, I be rude to them and push them away. I kept on wishing that I was dead, because I thought the world would be better that way. Please people of thetoptens, don't treat my message like a joke, don't treat it serious either, just...feel sorry for me... - Gehenna

I was born in 2003

'enough said

I was born before you in 2002

I was born before You in 2001

17 Attention

I can relate to this as well because I don't get much attention from anyone and I just sometimes feel like just falling over and dying

No how do I unvote this this is not true ahjdhsjhfjd
No one kills themselves for attention how can they get attention when they're DEAD
people do fake suicide however

If someone is comiting suiside for att.there is somthing deeper going on inside.rember suiside is very seriouse even if someone tryed to kill them selcs for att.still don't say uch your just att seeking take them seriously.what if they kill them selfs there is no getting theam back.

18 Relationship break up

One of my friends was suicidal for a while. She broke up with her boyfriend thanks to her church contract. She has had like 1000 boyfriends but only cares about him. Two weeks later he moved to America. (We live in Mexico) She was depressed for so long.

Two months later she got very sick. She told me as she left school sick: "I hope it's pneumonia. I hope it because people die of it." It was a nasal infection and she got better.

After a month she got pneumonia. She was fine until the last part.

Her nasal infection came back and the pneumonia. She came back fine again.

I think she is going to be suicidal. (P.S. Valentines day came and her wound opened again for her boyfriend)

What are you retarted keys

19 Low self esteem

I just feel like, I don't deserve it

I suffer from low self esteem

You do
make more freinds and hang out with them, that helps

20 Poor grades

This is why my parents screamed at me and nagged at me.

I have heard cases of teens committing suicide just because of poor grades.Now that's just sad.);

21 Doubting that god exists

Who put this on the list?

22 Mean teachers

My maths teacher keeps throwing bad comments about kids achieving less than average in her class saying indirectly how stupid they are, without knowing that it deeply hurts and comments like that can honestly drive teens to commiting suicide.

This is the main reason I was suicidal at 10-11

This is true...

23 Abusive parents

YES! My little sister was only seven when this happened! Her life was utterly sucky! Her father would abuse her everyday and she would scream and cry for two hours! We felt like we were disowned! One day she was crying hysterrically under her bed after a heated arguement with our parents about Dad torturing us. Two days later, she ran to the police with me and screamed "Please help us cause our dad is torturing us everyday! " Three months later, my sister killed herself after my dad broke her skull. I miss her and it has been 7 years. At least I have a new father. There has been no torture ever since.

These types of parents should hang themselves

My dad told me that friends don't exist...

I know some dads who are abusive
