The Top Ten

1 Getting bullied

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!

YES ABSOLUTELY! I see kids get bullied everyday and honestly, I ALWAYS try and do something to stop it wether it's stopping them right there or telling someone. But if someone messes with one of my friends or family, they better have planned their own funeral - Zombieman99

People need to stop bullying and first of all IT IS VERY WRONG and I have friends anyone that try's to hurt them bully them or make fun of them shall get beat up and I'm very very very strong I do not play for real though don't BULLY

2 Failing to get into a good school

i agree - GleamingShadow

3 Teased by siblings

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

OH YES - GleamingShadow

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

I have an anoying brother,mother,cosin,and dad that tease m,hurt me (physicaly and verbaly)and threaten me.

4 Family pressure

I hate my mom and dad because they give me a load of pressure to be the best If you are reading this please send me some suicide ways

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 - GleamingShadow

7 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.

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.

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.

I have lost much of my family and it is hard and you feel like you can't stand another loss - GleamingShadow

8 Stress
9 Depression

Dude, remember Sayori from Doki Doki Literature Club!? , yeah, there’s a good picture for you...

10 Sexual orientation

oh no

The Newcomers

? Parents being negative about everything

Parents are always negative, they never say yes to a thing, except for negative things that include abusing, harrasment, or saying no.

The Contenders

11 Homework

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

Its just a joke man

12 Finding out that babies are created through sex
13 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 before you in 2002

I was born in 2003

'enough said

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 - GleamingShadow

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

In school most of kids from class comment,criticize and tease me.Girls are teasing me everytimes.Not only in school,in other places too but highly in school.I say many times I will commit suicide.I'm 12 years old and that girls tease me from 5th grade to 6th grade.Now I'am 6th grade and today two girls teased me.Most teachers are getting on my nerves.I have a few friends.I miss a little to commit suicide.

15 Lost all hope for living

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 hope you are not being serious. Get some help. Dying at this age is tragic. - RockFashionista

CerealGuy, dude. Not right.

16 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) - Brokenangel

What are you retarted keys

17 Attention
18 Mean teachers

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

21 They get constantly cyberbullied, harassed, and stalked on the internet

22 Getting bullied for making something

There was this roblox user named doctor_sally who made Hospital roleplay 3.0, and people criticized her for ripping off Hospital roleplay 2.0, so she killed herself - TeamRocket747

that hurts - GleamingShadow

23 Failing in school

I have failed in school a lot of time try to commit sue side a lot of time

This is a big one - GleamingShadow

24 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.

I know some dads who are abusive

This is a huge one - GleamingShadow

I hate abusive parents, if you have one. EXCERCISE AND IF YOU HAVE AUTISM YOU HAVE AN UPPER HAND

25 Overly stressed


26 They are dramatic

Nope that is wrong

to kill yoursealf, you have to actually be so sad that you think there is no point in living - GleamingShadow

27 Parents who don't show enough attention and give no positive affirmation

My parents have 4 kids. It still hurts.

28 People making sexual threats

It happens to my friend

29 Psychological abuse from a parent
30 Boredom

Possibly mixing in with the Dramatic or Attention Seeking Vote. A person becomes so bored that they begin to either commit self harm or begin to have the curious thought of suicide. Not common obviously but unstable or as said, the D and AS types may fall under this category.

I relate to this.
I mean, I'm just bored with life and everything in general.
It's just a cycle repeating over and over again
never stopping no matter how much I want it to stop.

31 Drugs

Drugs rip kids down to the point of no hope. Without hope your nothing. So don't do drugs. - TheHabsFan

32 Torture from abusive parents
33 Illness
34 Parent being in jail
35 Peer pressure

My friend committed suicide over this, so I had to add it - KingSlayer93316

Don't peer pressure someone to do that - GleamingShadow

36 Being homeless
37 Liars

What do you mean - GleamingShadow

I hate liars

38 Friends and parents gone and no support from others
39 Parents splitting up
40 Blindness
41 Low self esteem

I just feel like, I don't deserve it

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

42 Being gay

You should know why

Shut up if you are LGBT there is nothing wrong with you and you need to realize that your not alone - GleamingShadow
