Anyone feel comforted when you see a suicide news story or hear about a suicide?

I don’t feel a lot of comfort here even though it’s better than nothing. I feel like I’m on a fringe site like 4chan. When I look up “suicide” on Google news though and see that thousands are ctb in Japan, I feel like I’m not so alone. Seeing that people from regular society are dying in droves all over shows me there are many like us. It makes ctb less scary.

I'm sorry you don't feel that here. That's one of the greatest comforts of SS for me - the fact that there are so many others who feel the way that I do, when I might otherwise feel ostracized and isolated. In short, yes, I do feel comfort hearing about stories of other people who ctb, but it also bothers me somewhat. I grieve for them and the fact that they felt they had no other option. It's a sad statement about our world when so many believe that non-existence is at least a step better than what life has to offer.

I think it’s because we’re just words on a screen. Everyone here could be AI. A news story often shows a name, picture (sometimes), etc, which sets it in the real world. This website feels like its own dimension.
No, I just feel jealous.
Not just suicides, but of anyone who dies.
I just want to be gone.
Many die without even knowing they died. It’s so weird.

I actually do feel comforted. It’s like a reminder that I’m not actually forcibly bound to this place and when I’m ready I can go and there is no imaginary force actually blocking me from doing so.

:O I feel that imaginary force too. I stood at the Golden Gate once and I couldn’t move forward. I felt jumping was like going through a mountain or out of the game in those old Pokémon game boy games.
