Discuss how our current culture has normalized statements such as "I'm so dead," "I'm dying," "I want to die" to describe non-suicidal feelings, and how this normalization has lessened the gravity and awareness of individuals who truly have suicidal thoughts and intentions.
Within our culture and among today's youth, we commonly use those phrases to exaggeratedly express that we find something funny, that we are embarrassed or upset, that we are stressed out, and more. Topics of death have also been turned into memes and jokes, such as writing "ded" and "my mom would kill me." This language has been interwoven in our daily lingo so much that suicidal individuals who express feelings of wanting to die are not taken seriously. Our generation tends to interpret those words as methods to express small, everyday issues, rather than as warning signs for suicidal intentions.
