Tell someone : First you need to tell someone about this, so you can get help. You could be very depressed, and not recognizing the finality of suicide. You may have lost hope, and need to borrow someone else's for awhile. When you get treated for this, you will feel better, and then it's important to consider your life purpose. Could be kids or pets who depend on you, even. We need a vision for our lives.
