Hey guys I dont want to ruin the funny in funny pics. And i don't want to preach or anything like that, but something terrible happened today that has to do with bullying. I'm a senior in high school. To day a sophomore tried to kill himself during lunch by slitting his wrist and neck on campus. He attempted in the most populated area on campus. After all the panic that ensued after the attempt, we were quickly taken to 5th period and lunch was quickly ended. During 5th, about 30ish minutes after the attempt, we learned that he was thankfully unsuccessful and is currently stable in a nearby hospital. The reasoning? Two seniors were cyberbullying the kid. They were taken in for questioning by cops.
Please guys there is always another way that doesnt involve harm.
@crazysheep, Fvck! That’s awful!! I’m so very happy he got the help he needed and was unsuccessful. And that the kids bullying him are being questioned. 😥 What the fvck is wrong with people?
@crazysheep, You never know how people will take an interaction. Hope that kids gets the help he needs to better cope with negative interactions.
@Kamitha, idk what's wrong with people. But I sure am glad that he was unsuccessful. Even though he spilled alot alot of blood (I saw the bloody mess) he somehow made it out alive. Maybe for a reason? But I hope this doesnt happen to anyone else or any of you. Self harm or witnessing any self harm
@crazysheep, I don't want to seem like a cock, but I assume you don't know the whole story- The poor mate could have had some deeper family related problems, or was doing unfriendly drugs. When emotions go beyond the line on the ground and one snaps, It's rare that they are given a chance to go back after the damage is done. I feel that most of these teen problems are caused by the overcareing, and obsession to be liked in the eyes of their peers.
I was bullied pretty good in my earlier childhood (age4-9). Luckily this was before every kid had a phone and laptop so the bullying didn't go home with me, but I digress.
In hindsight, I think that I could have helped my situation more had I not talked at all to begin with.
Anyway, what I'm trying to say with all this is that school doesn't matter at a social level. It does at face value, because it's happening in real time but trust me, and all the other graduates out there- No one gives a flooping fůck about what you do after.
@FlyingLegHair, I dont know the full story, but i care that someone was bullied enough to try and take his life. Especially in a big way like that cause maybe he was trying to send a message or something.
P.s. it sucks that you were bullied and I hope things are better now.
P.p.s. you didn't seem like a cock at all and were respectful and voice your opinion and were right that I did not know the full story.
@crazysheep, How are you feeling?
@crazysheep, I feel for you, I really do. It must have been some traumatizing stuff witnessing that mess. Do you go to a large city school, or a more rural school?
Oddly, I had a stabbing at a local highschool in my city today, too. Some senior stabbed another female student and then started stabbing himself. Keep in mind, I live in OMAHA, NEBRASKA. Center of the usa, corn as far as you can see.
Unlike you, I wasn't there. I just saw it on the news but it goes to show this shït can happen anywhere, so don't let it get you down. If anything, sad to say; there will probably always be a percentage of the population that is willing to act on suicide.
But don't stop helping! Everyone is worth saving so don't intervene for the suicide prevention. Befriend them for a potential great friendship instead! That's probably all it will take to change their minds.
@SimonPetrikov, I'm alright, I've seen some bad things before, but I'm worried about some younger innocent friends that had to witness everything.
Thanks for asking
@FlyingLegHair, it was a city school. Kinda large. And I agree that we should never stop helping
@crazysheep, ahh sheep, I’m so sorry to hear that. I am happy to hear that he is okay and getting the necessary help he needs. Make sure you use this as a way to begin a conversation and start talking to people about it. The best way to stop this stuff is to start talking about it. I also know that these events can be traumatizing to others. Are you doing okay? (I used to be a crisis interventionist, I’m not just being a crazy person)
@crazysheep, damn, at least he was in a public place where he could get help quickly. I hope they recover. And unpopular opinion: I hope the people who caused that learn from this and can move on as better people.
@crazysheep, I am in a class to be an EMT and my teacher (still a highschool class) told us that people can live without a lot of their blood, just as long as cells can get oxygen
@crazysheep, Whoever the coward is that downvoted all the compassionate replies in this thread better come forward. I need to know why you did that.
@crazysheep, you would be roasted alive if this was ifunny.
@Gatsby, it doesn't matter. This wasnt for upvotes or anything like that I just wanted to tell the community about something terrible that happened and to tell that there is always hope. Downvotes dont bother me and I hope they dont bother anyone else.
Also I told this story because I had no one else to turn to during the bloody mess that I saw
@crazysheep, You’re a good person, Sheep.
My immediate reactions based on the words I read:
“When I was a kid”: Some old guy complaining.
“my social network was”: Yep, old guy complaining.
“Going outside”: I did that too—not everyone is that bad nowadays.
“and bullying”: Wait, what?
“the disabled kids”: ...... OOOHHH.... That turned...
@PBnJ, yeah, old people can't handle young people doing anything different so it's gotta be the downfall of society. Too bad they did new things that the last generation before they didn't do to.
When I was a kid we'd go outside and make kids disabled.
Kids still do that in schools
