Obviously thinking about suicide every day is not being in a good place. There's no question that if you're in that state of mind, you should seek out a friend or trusted relative. If you don't feel better, please seek professional help. There are several online counseling services, just ready to work with you. You can also go to to connect with someone trained to speak with you.

When you feel like this, it's likely that you have a lot of things around you that trigger these thoughts. When you find out what they are you'll need to find a way to cope and restrict them.

Yes, But i'd talk to your doctor, I understand it's really hard, your doing great! No matter what i'm not going to leave you, your not alone, Understand that Suicide Isn't going to take away your issues, it will only cause more for people who love and care for you.

I would say no, it is not. However, sometimes you may start to feel so down that these thoughts may occur everyday. If so, I would recommend talking to someone. Family, friends, someone here on 7 cups that could start the help and lead you to possibly getting some professional help.

It's not normal. I think you should contact a school nurse, teacher, parent, older sibling etc so someone you trust knows. It's really not normal, and it's a red flag. Please, seek help for your own sake. It's not a shame, it's not stupid, it's worth it, and it might help a lot.

Many people will think about suicide during their lifetime but if you find yourself thinking about it everyday you should find support through the various helplines available.

A lot of individuals feel this way, there are those that just contemplate the action and those that feel they have no way out but there is help out there and nobody is alone.

No. You should seek help. Text Crisis Text Line. 741-741. You should talk to a liscensed professional about your thoughts

if you think about it everyday, you should really talk to someone about it. Something could be upsetting you that triggers you to think about suicide

When we talk about something being normal there isn't really an accurate definition for it. With something like this though its not so much abnormal but it is concerning. There are links and numbers for helplines you can find on here. Please don't feel like you're on your own, there are people who want to help.

it is not normal to think about suicide every single day. seek the help and guidance of a therapist if you find that this is the case for you

It may be a normative behaviour if you are very depressed. Seek help immediately - seek medical advice, phone a hotline or connect with a friend

No, it’s not normal to think everyday how to end with a beautiful life. Each life is important, solutions are everywhere, and suicide it’s not an option

Thinking yes, but suicide no. They must be a particular reason why there is a Suicidal Thoughts occurs in the mind everyday, and what are the causes to that thinking. It could be, perhaps that you were bullied, harassed, break-ups and others that lead to a state of mind where you feel like you are worthless and no one to talk to, and you want to end your life by thinking about it. So No, it's not normal to think about suicide everyday. Best to seek out professional help.
May 3rd, 2018 6:27pm
No it is not. One doesn't think about ending one's life if one isn't unhappy with it. Maybe you feel you can't get anything done, feel goalless. But that is what you FEEL and not necessarily a true reflection of reality. It's ok to feel down and sad sometimes. But if you are feeling suicidal, on a regular basis or not, you should seek professional help. Only a professional can properly guide you through your emotions. You can also keep yourself sorrounded by positive people - good friends, family members. Don't forget to smile and have a good day!

Normal or anormal isn't the point. Thinking about suicide everyday has one or several serious topics in the background causing such thoughts. If such topics exist, it isn't anormal to think about suicide daily, but still it is essential to tackle the underlying issue to not let them grow further, but resolve them. It could be important to consult a therapist for support!

Simple answer: no. If you are thinking about suicide or even just don't feel like yourself, please go get help. Talk to friends and family, find a therapist, etc. If you are not happy, find ways to feel better. People around you love you an will be very willing to help, you just need to let them know.

It is not normal to think about suicide every day. If that is a situation you or someone you know is currently experiencing please try to reach out for help. Just remember you are loved and worth it, even if you may not feel like that is true all the time.
May 11th, 2018 7:59pm
No, unfortunately not. Thoughts like these come to many of us, but the best we can do is talk to someone about them, and do our best to find happiness. If you're struggling, know that it's okay to seek help

It is not normal to think about suicide every day. You should consult a psychiatrist. Because this is not normal.

It all depends on who you are and what your situation. People who have mental health issues, such as depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia often do think about death and/or suicide constantly. I would recommend getting yourself checked it you do think about suicide that often. From my personal experience, having bipolar disorder, I tend to overthink about things for months and one day just act recklessly on the thoughts, so when I have suicidal thoughts I know to talk to someone or seek help as soon as possible. I really hope that you feel better soon and please try and be safe.

No. It is not normal to think about suicide everyday, and if you are you should seek professional help.
May 24th, 2018 8:26pm
I dont like the word 'normal' but thinking about suicide every day may not be healthy for your state of mind. Suicide should always be taken seriously and you should talk to a trusted adult or therapist.
May 24th, 2018 10:27pm
The short answer is no. Suicide isn't something the average person thinks about too often. Stressors or mental health issues can cause it to be more common. If you experience passive suicidal thoughts (no intent), this may be something to work through by means of asking yourself why you think those things and what comfort/distress it brings. Also, teaching yourself to think a better thought is easier than you might think. If you experience active suicidal thoughts (intent), then I would consider reaching out to a professional, a supportive family member, or a close friend, for further and ongoing support when those thoughts come up. Don't underestimate how much a professional can offer.
May 30th, 2018 8:46pm
I wouldn't say it would be weird or anything. Maybe you should get professional help if you already aren't. Just remember, we are all unique and important in our own ways.
May 31st, 2018 2:38am
No. If a person is thinking about suicide daily, they need to confide in a trusted adult that can help them get the help they need. Suicide is never the answer.

It is can be considered "normal" in a sense of someone who has reoccurring thoughts of suicide. However, you should tell someone about these thoughts because you may be a danger to yourself. Suicidal ideation can be both passive and active, it's important to get information, know yourself, and reach out for help if needed.
June 15th, 2018 4:28pm
It might be normal for some people and it isn't normal for others. It is not, however, healthy and okay to think about suicide everyday. There are plenty of suicide hotlines that you can call to talk to trained professionals about that situation, as well as therapists here that can help you.
