Phebe - Posted on August 14, 2014

I was born in a Christian family. My whole life was all about being good and being like Christ. Well, one thing I realized is that just because you were born in a Christian family you are not necessarily living a life with no guilt, no problems, no struggle. We are all living in the same world. It's our choice to keep running the race of faith. But as for me, I would do anything to keep my heart loving God and loving people... even if it means giving my own life just TO SAVE A LIFE.

I guess it all started when I lost my grandma 5 years ago. I was always bullied because of my weight or because I smelled and on top of that I moved a lot before my freshman year of high school but when my grandma passed I started shutting everybody out. I thought that I was all alone in this world. Nobody would help me; it just kept getting worse and worse. Just when I thought it couldn't have gotten worse, it did. My best friend killed himself near the beginning of my senior year. I kept getting bullied more and more by the day but then someone changed my whole outlook on things. You see there was this girl I met and she never left my side. She always made sure I was ok and now I am proud to say yeah the bullying still happens but I have her.

From the age of 10 I knew I had no parents and always felt that God did not do me so well. Many times it made me mad but as I came to a certain age where I understood what suicide is, I was tempted to do so at the age of 15. I met one of my teachers who always counselled me and told me that Jesus loves me... and that is when I experienced the change. I saw the movie today and really felt touched. I am thankful for the wonderful life He has given me. Though I am alone, He has never let me feel that... and that's why I love Him.

When I was thirteen, I started feeling worthless, guilty, the whole nine yards. Even reading the Bible didn't help. It only told me stuff I already knew, thus making me feel more guilty, because I didn't feel like a "new creation". I didn't feel "fearfully and wonderfully made". And I certainly never felt like I was "who I wanted to be". So I did the only logical thing for anyone feeling like nothing could be worth all this. I became a cutter. That went on for about a school year before I yelled at God one last time and He saved me again. A few months later (do it sooner) I told my mom via letter and my dad found the letter a couple of weeks ago (I'm fifteen). I'm still struggling with the guilt. I don't think it'll go away. Which is fine. The nice people never realize how nice they are.

Hey guys, I just wanna say when I was 10 years old I used to be very sad and I didn't have the perfect life. I was just nobody and I started having suicide thoughts in my mind. You can't even imagine how!! I was such a freak just by being alone and not that into people. I only need to thank someone who completely changed my mind. I was reborn thanks to my dad and I'm much better. I really want to thank him again coz what he did is amazing. He's my hero; he showed me what life is really about! It's not about money or winners. It's life and it's about happiness and I also want to thank you for this amazing film. It's so amazing and when I watched it I knew that life is so much more than just money. So thanks! I just wanted to share my story!

First, I'm from Morocco and I'm Muslim. When I was 19 years old, <br /> I watched the film and wow, I embraced it. It was so cool. I think about the problems that people have and I want to help. I want to save a life.

Hey friends, I am a guy who smiles every day without a reason. I smile for the people who are sad. Happiness is a choice. For every minute you are angry or irritated, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. Be happy. Be yourself. If others do not like it, then let them be. Life is not about pleasing everybody.<br /> <br /> If you have the courage to admit when you are scared, the ability to laugh even as you cry, the nerve to speak up, even if your voice is shaking, the confidence to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when itís offered, then you have everything you need to get yourself to a happier state of mind.

Never trust your friends; they shall do like the film. I cried when I saw the film because my friends don`t care about me. They don't care about anything. I didn't talk with anyone so please, guys, if anyone can help me and want to be my friend please talk to me here.

Aysha - Posted on July 16, 2014

Somehow it seems like it's the beginning for those looking from the outside. Fresh college graduate, recently engaged.....well that works a little different in this side of the world! <br /> But to me "the bride to be" it feels like it's the end. I went my whole life dreaming away of Prince charming like all girls, and when the day came and I saw him for the first time, my heart was shattered into a million little pieces! We were officially married at that point....Yes MARRIED to a person that I did not know. After all isn't this how arranged marriages work! <br /> The moment I looked into his eyes I knew that he was not the one that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Someone once said "forever is a very LONG time" and for once in my life I dreamt that forever was just a blink of an eye :( <br /> <br /> Do you want to know what happened next?<br /> <br />

I've been through a lot, self harm, suicide attempts, pills, depressions, just so many things. But unlike most of you, I haven't found my Jesus; where is he? I wonder. I need him if he exists but I cannot seem to find him. I'm not here to beg people to take me to Jesus, I just want people to know that sometimes endings aren't as beautiful as the ending of that movie.

Isa - Posted on July 15, 2014

Last month I watched this movie and I cried very much. Now, my life is changing. Three months ago I was trying to kill myself and I was thinking "Why am I alive? Why am I here?" I don't have friends, but someday I will. I don't care what people say about me. The only thing I know (right now) is I need help.
