I was 5 when I started getting depressed and I had a broken family whose dad was an alcoholic and mum had depression.<br /> I grew up with depression and anger issues because my family was always fighting and I was always getting abused by my father. It got worse when I turned 12. I started thinking about self-harm and once I did it I was addicted and I got to the point where I would do it till my body was numb. I did it too deep once because I just wanted to end all my pain but only then my parents know that something was seriously wrong and after that I saw people who helped me through my hard times. My parents split up, then I started feeling better. After everything I learned a lot from everyone mostly just to stay strong and believe in yourself. Now I help people who are going through rough times and it makes me happy knowing I can help.

So I used to post on here quite often because it saved me. I got better but recently I've gotten really bad again. I relapsed about 3 months ago after being nearly 2 years clean, and I've cut every week since then. I know this won't help but I wanted to return to what helped me in the past

When I was in high school, I turned to self-harm to deal with the anxiety I had, but felt I couldn't tell anyone, that it wasn't worth it. The self-harm escalated in frequency and by the time I got to college, it was a mixture of anxiety and depression that occurred every other week. Then one day, I realized that I didn't have to live like that, live in fear of myself and what I could do. That strength wasn't holding my problems in, but letting them go. I finally told one of my friends and she convinced me to get help. It's been over a year since I've committed any self-harm, and I'm very proud of that.

Hi! I'm from Hungary. I have 5 brothers and my mother is a single parent. My father died (he committed suicide) when I was 15. I'd a really strong relationship with my father, but I knew it was harder for my mother because she lost her lover, her other half. I'm a believer, but after my father's death I had a really hard period. I thought that his death was my fault, too. In secondary school I got to know a really clever and cute guy, and he showed me the right way. We are now best friends. Without him I wouldn't be who I am. Now I know that we are never alone; God loves us! He always will be there if we need Him! If any of you need me I'll be here.

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.

When I was in 6th and 7th grade I was getting bullied by one of my fiends and she never got in trouble whenever I tell on her. Because I had friends that would tell me what she would be doing and explain why she is doing this. And what she did was that during lunch she would get extra milk under my amount and one day I forgot my water bottle at school and I asked her if she saw it. She would keep on lying to me. And then I found it. It was in her locker the whole time. Then she framed me for taking her water bottle. But like I told you she never got in trouble. Before she was my best friend until she started to do this. She goes to a different school now. I am so glad that I don't have to see her anymore because I am just really mad at her because she did that.

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.

Hello my name is David, I am Brazilian. This film greatly spoke to me. Congratulations to everyone who participated, and particularly to God. I want to leave a message for you. (The hunger we all have is hunger for the meaning of life. Jesus said in John 6-35: I am the bread of life whoever hungers for me in no way will be hungry, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. Amen).
