Boredom is a kind of desperation I suppose

Boredom doesn’t make me suicidal, but depression does.

Yes, desperate for change, is that what you mean?

Some people do selfharmactivies out of boredom like drugging, alcohol etc.

I think boredom is intermittent and easy on the mind and body. While depression is heavy and long.

I used to get bored, then I accepted the sensation and used the time where I couldn’t help to do anything to relax, and rest my mind.

Now I’m only bored when I feel lethargic enough to not want to do things, so I relax and rest then too.

That’s a personality disorder or addiction.

You are saying people experiencing boredom have a personality disorder? I mean as well, bored people not only drugging, alcohol etc. they start picking fights and doing dangerous stupid stuff.

OMG no. If you’re self-harming you likely either have a personality disorder, a psychotic disorder, or both. Healthy people are able to be bored without causing some sort of fuss.
