It's wonderful to have supporting friends, but your friends do NOT always know what to do, let alone how to react. I'd say that was fine, especially for someone who doesn't know the steps to take if you're in that depressed state. Make sure you PLEASE reach out to a suicide prevention hotline. Your feelings can be and usually are temporary or can be supported/recovered from; death is none of these. It's a serious issue where there is many outlets to receive help from; as the person above stated as well! Please seek help, you are very much worth it.

(1) While friends and family can be a source of support, that does not mean they are qualified, able, and willing to be a psychologist. If you need help, seek professional help. If you cannot afford or do not have access to a licensed psychologist consider someone like a counselor at your school or sometimes companies have that service available (ask HR) or consider your religious leader (minister, priest, rabbi, etc) if you are a member of their congregation.

(2) Nobody, at any time, ever likes being “vented on”. Don’t expect others to like being the object that you are venting on. There is a difference between seeking guidance and help verses “venting”. Venting is just being there while someone rants on. If you feel the need to “vent” try writing down your thoughts and feelings. This also helps you to organize what you are actually feeling and thinking which can help your own mental process.
