I joined daily strenghth this evening for this one reason. Last night my best friend tried to kill himself because the girl hes in love with broke his heart. He took a bunch of pills, but now only feels like a failure. Please can anyone give me advice on what 2 say or do? As of right now me and two other people know of the attempt. Everytime life gets tough for him, he threatens suicide, I think mainly to get attention, but he has become the little boy who cried wolf. Hardly anyone is taking his threats seriously anymore. Even I was getting a little exhausberated until last night. I have been trying 2 let him know how much people love him, especially me, and how much it would hurt for us to loose him, but he doesnt believe me. How can I get through to him? Who should I tell without betraying his trust? What can I say to let him know how much he REALLY means to me?
