Brace yourselves. This may be long.. sorry, I need to vent

Ok, so at school today we got the news that a boy in grade 12 (my grade) commited suicide last night. It is shocking. I didn't know him, but I was in complete shock. I feel so sorry for his family, and him too. It is a horrible thing to have to go through.
I was reflecting on my own life and I can't fathom what could happen in your life to make you take your own life. People say it's the easy way out, but I don't think it is. I wish this boy had talked to someone.. suicides happen all the time, but they are all equally devastating to everyone.. mostly to the family and friends. I can't imagine what this family is going through today.. it must be absolutely horrible. My deepest condolances go out to his family.. and to him as well.. Rest In Peace. I hope wherever he is now is a lot happier and he is no longer in pain.

I have been going through some really hard things too. I know this is going to sound really wrong and gross to a lot of you, but I am still so deep in love with my teacher from last year. I had a lot of personal issues last year and he always welcomed me to talk to him and I did.. but I got in too deep with him. He won't talk to me now, and I feel bad for what I put him through. He tried to get me to stop emailing him and stuff, he was looking out for his job and reputation. Whenever we spoke after that, he always had someone else in the room. I still can't get over him though,
My social teacher pretty much hates me I think. I went to talk to him at lunch today and he was telling me that he wouldn't help me with this project because it was overdue and all this.

Sorry everyone. I just really needed to vent and I am still in shock from the news we got today.

Thanks everyone

I'm sorry for this boy. I'm sorry for it that you had to hear this piece of news. Obviously he has done so bad that he hasn't found any other solution. I'm so sorry for his family/friends but at least he needn't to suffer anymore.

About the teacher thing, everybody makes mistakes and especially young girls who learn to love can end up excess and mistakes. When I was upper level comprehensive school I had a crush (I was on 7th grade, he was 9th) and I didn't know how to handle with my feelings and how to enunciate them to him. I started literally to follow him a lot, I even went close to his home and hanged out under his window. Eventually, maybe after a year, he scolded me publicly on the web (yea, even my mom and everybody who read his sites caught this). Afterward I apologized to him and he continued his lives and I mine. He has completed his comprehensive school when everything turned out so we haven't had to go same school after the conflict. I can still understand your situation and how distracting it can be. Yea, it's a pity and distracting that all this have happened but as I said, everybody makes mistakes.

About the social teacher, show him that you can do the project! I think that if the teacher is sulky, the best "revenge" is show that you can do well everything what s/he ask you to do

I am sorry to hear that the guy suicide though it needs a very strong courage to take this big step. I am guessing something must have happened really bad to him which led this sort of action.

I remember when I was in Uni, every year someone was jumping from the 23rd floor of University halls room. People start saying that it is cursed because the building is built on top of a old grave yard. I didn't believe such stories but was equally shocked that every single year I spent in Uni someone from high floor use to jump from that building and kill themselves.

As far as crushing is concern, I had a crush on this teacher when I was in year 5. I started taking tution classes at her house and then one day I told my mum that I want to marry this teacher. Instead of shouting at me, my mum took me to this teacher house and told her that I want to marry her. Both mum and my teacher started laughing. Believe it or not, my mum still teases me with what happened.

My crushes don't stop there am afraid. When I went to year 8, I had another crush on teacher. I use to go to her house and even met her mum. Though didn't say anything. One day her mum asked me to ask my mum to go to her house. I didn't think that my teacher mum is going to ask my mum to stop me from going to her house, though it turned out to be that my teacher's mum asked my mum to find a guy for her. I was like yepeee I might have a chance. Then I found out that she got married with some doctor working in America.

I then had another crush in A-Levels, though that didn't work out at all. Finally I didn't have any crushes since then until now!(Thank God for that), instead alot of girls in University had crushes on me. Stupidly one girl started doing what you mentioned TaMMa, and I got scared of her. I did the similar thing as to what you had however instead of online I did it infront of my friends. I did asked her to leave me alone. The biggest problem was that whenever I use to talk to any other girl while she is around me, she use to get so angry and start telling off all those girls. Additionally she use to turn up early mornings to my flat while I didn't have my eyes open properly.

Similar situations happened with me through out my University life. It was pretty much crazy times.

Since I started job and meeting less and less people I am doing fine. Though sometimes I miss those times. .

As far as your situation is concern Snapple, I'd say you should stop scaring the teacher.... To be honest if you look from his point of view it's his job in line and I am sure no one would like to get sacked!.

Though I agree we all get crushes and some might think I even went into extreme measures however the situations for everyone is different.

Rest is all upto you.

Now that is some big history book I just wrote on myself!

I think that courage is facing the next day and overcoming whatever challenge has driven a person to thoughts of suicide. While I'm sure this is easier said than done, I think that praising the act as courageous is dangerous because it may encourage people contemplating ending their lives to do so when they might otherwise go on to lead happy, productive lives once they work out their issues.

I am very sorry to hear that this happened, Snapple122.

On another note, regarding crushes, I can empathize with you guys. I think one of the most liberating moments in my life was when something clicked and I realized that the only love worth bothering with is a love that loves back.

I am sorry I must have wrote it wrong while thinking it right. I meant to say, there must have been a very big issue/situation that had lead him to commit suicide. To me personally that is a coward way out. However someone has to put a Rock on his/her heart to do something like that.

Sorry for the comment in above post it was mistakenly written though intention was something else.

Im sorry about the kid. :( a kid in one of my classes was driving home from a homecoming party (i don't remember if he was drunk or not but I don't think so.) and his car slid in the rain and they hit a tree. His best friend was the one who had died. It was horrible.

Im so sorry about the loss and everything.

I totally agree. It is reallyyy hard though when you fall for someone who doesn't have the same feelings. It is so painful. But I'm getting through it.
