The Blamelessness of a Suicidal Mind:
A person who is suicidal is by definition out of his or her rational mind. They cannot think clearly or make logical and healthy choices. Keep in mind that they are out of their rational mind once they have set into motion their will to carry out the act of suicide.
How Normal Is It to Have Suicidal Thoughts?:
Suicidal thoughts are normal (meaning nothing to be alarmed about) in so much as they are simple fleeting thoughts that emerge from a desire to escape an unfavorable situation. Most people in their lifetime will entertain the hypothetical possibility that things would be far better if if their life were terminated. It is unhealthy, but not extremely irrational or dangerous.
Red flags in the development of suicidal thoughts arise as these thoughts feel more and more reasonable to the victim. The victim no longer sees this looming death as daunting, but sees it increasingly as the answer.
Negative Copimg Skills Become More Frequent:
If the victim is a cutter, you will notice they cut more often, deeper, and closer to veins. If they overdose in medication, you will notice taking more medication or other toxins, to almost flirt with death increasingly as they become more comfortable with the idea.
In general, actions of self-harm and self-loathing will become increased and this is the point when the victim needs to cry out for help!
