Is it weird that thinking about someone keeps me from being suicidal?

I don't know if this is a common coping mechanism, I tried googling it. I was wondering if anyone else here could relate to this.

Basically, when I feel down, I think about people I love or love me and inspire me.

Ah, cool. Maybe it just seems odd to me because I never really felt that close to anyone since I tended to grow up very socially disconnected to social media and gaming addiction.

Re: Is it weird that thinking about someone keeps me from being suicidal?

Makes perfect sense. Could be many reasons, eg maybe thinking of the people you love reminds you that you aren't alone or that you've someone to live for. Maybe it's soothing and relaxing. I'm not sure but I'm glad that you've got something or someone to hold on to. If you do feel suicidal or have a lot of suicidal ideation it's worth getting help for it or mentioning it to your doctor. It's nice that you've got a good coping mechanism but you shouldn't have to depend on it.

Re: Is it weird that thinking about someone keeps me from being suicidal?

No, thatís actually a very common coping strategy. Iím not sure why it would be weird. If it helps you to overcome those feelings, I say go for it.
