Abigail - Posted on May 01, 2016

Hello, my name is Abigail. I'm from Peru. There are times when I felt alone. I had a relationship but he only hurt me in different ways. But thanks to members of the church, I feel much better. Jesus loves us despite our shortcomings and never leaves us. If any of you need me I'll be here.

Hi everyone, I don't have a lot of space to tell my whole story. But I have dealt with depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, sexual assault, and anorexia between the ages of fourteen and fifteen. I am now 18 and if it weren't for supportive friends I would not be here typing this. If you ever need someone to talk to just write me here. I am more than happy to talk with you. You're Not alone, stay strong.

Today I woke up to a message from my best friend. She sent me a Snapchat of her wrist. She injured herself again, but worse this time. I decided it had been going on for too long. I talked to her mother. Now she is getting the help she needs. I saved my best friend's life.

Ludmila - Posted on April 16, 2016

Hi I'm from Argentina. I am 17 years old. I think that teenagers have the tendency to believe that problems are beyond us and there is only despair. The first reflection is that we are alone and over time I realized that we are not alone because God is always with us. He shows us different ways and sometimes we do not want to see or want to hear, but nothing in this life will go as well, but doing it God's way; we just have to talk to him. He's there, he's waiting with open arms. Ask him and he will give you all the answers you need. I let him into my heart and He is giving me the answers I need for my life and the true answer he gave me is that whatever you do, do it with love. All the best to you.

Sarah - Posted on April 14, 2016

I have dealt with drug abuse, physical abuse, BPD, depression, and suicide. I have crumbled to pieces and been stepped on and now, here I stand harder than diamond and I shine just as bright. No matter what you are going through, you can over come. There will never be another you. Don't deny the world your unique light.

I feel like my dad does not listen to me. I feel like does not want me. I feel like Roger; I do not have any friends.<br /> There was no future for him. He killed himself with a gun. I watched To Save a Life movie. It gave Me a change to think about what I want for my future. That's why I have watched it over again.<br /> i like it. I want t find a friend so I can escape the bad things I've done. I need to forgive myself. I like the music the movie has.

Yuritzi - Posted on April 10, 2016

Hello, as you can see I'm yuritzi. I was thinking about telling my story but 175 words is not much, so I will limit myself to say that you are not alone! I think that most have gone through bad times, but that does not mean that will always be so. I'll give you two examples, a bad and a good... (bad) nothing is forever, (good) nothing is forever. I also needed help and didn't have it so I will now give it! You can write me here and maybe I will share my story.<br /> <br />

Alli - Posted on April 05, 2016

Many people think that I am invincible, but, I'm not. I have been singled out by my peers, but my advice is, don't give up on life. Someone will come along. A favorite quote of mine is "Down the road the sun is shining."

Phoenix - Posted on March 28, 2016

I don't have much to say with JUST 175 words to give. What I do have to say is that no one should ever suffer from BPD. No one should go through BPD. It's not right. Yes, it has made me a stronger person, but it also has made me a weaker one too. My life is just WAY too complicated to simply explain it in 175 words or less...
