25. Let your friend know that you care
You probably do, but it does help. I have had problems with depression and like you, I did not kill myself because I thought of my loved ones. Sometimes, it can seem like no one cares and a depressed person may use this feeling to fuel their suicidal desires. I know that it is not possible to always be there. If your friend is suicidal, he/she does need some major help. Keep letting your friend know that you care though and that at least one person would terribly miss him/her if he/she died.
