Trigger warning:touchy topic. How many of you have a high tolerance for hearing someone saying that they're suicidal, self harm or think of dying? I know how to stay calm with such people, as long as their feelings aren't used as a form of harassment (ex: I will kill myself, if you don't do this for me). I have been in their shoes before too, so I'm not the type to shirk or stop talking to someone for struggling with suicidal thoughts. If someone is genuinely suffering, let me listen to you. I have noticed that some other people can be aversive to anyone experiencing these thoughts, and they think you're manipulating them? obviously, it's a problem when someone is leaning on you to be their therapist or emailing/texting you suicidal/self-harm statements daily. If that were happening to me, I would nicely tell the person to stop and recommend them to a crisis line. I wouldn't stop being friends with them.
