Melanie - Posted on April 06, 2014

Hey...I am a 18 years old, Italian girl. I have cut myself since I was 13 but nobody cares. First I tried where no one would see the cuts but when I told my friends they told me that it was not good for me.. I KNOW THAT IT IS NOT GOOD FOR ME!<br /> I hate my parents so I don't speak with them. I looked at therapy, but they are so expensive everywhere. One hour is between 80 and $120. I don't know what I can do.

Alena - Posted on April 06, 2014

Hi, my name is Alena and this is my story. I am 14 and I have had cancer for 7 years. A rare cancer called neuroblastoma. I have no hair and life has been hard forever. I get bullied at school for having no hair and being stick thin. It got to the point where I wasn't gonna fight back anymore. December 25th 2013, I was diagnosed with a high staged lung infection. I went into cardiac arrest 3 times and flatlined more then 10. I gave up and I said "I need to die." I had no friends and I was on life support for a month. My mum told me she was going to turn it off one day then she saw me move. Feb the 3rd 2014 I woke up. I saw my family sitting there and I knew it wasn't worth giving up. These days I am cancer free and I still have heart disease. Please never give up like I did.

Hi ..I'm not going to tell my story , I just want to say that God has put you on earth for a reason .. you belong here .. no matter what happens in life or what people say you are worth it .. your life is important! God is always there .. you can always trust Him .. He loves you so much .. if you know someone is going through a hard time, help them .. don't be the person who can only be around "cool" people .. everyone deserves to live and not be judged by how they decide to do it .. you are your own person and that's perfect .. trust in God and know that He is with you every step of the way.

Kimberly - Posted on April 02, 2014

I wanna tell you about myself. When I first started to school things were okay but when I got older things got worse for me. I started to get bullied and people judged me for who I was and they made fun of me. But this year my Sophomore year of high school that's when I could't take it anymore. I started to cut and hardly eat and just ignored my family. I have about 40 to 50 cuts on my arms total. It had gotten to the point I couldn't take it anymore and I lost it. I kept wondering if I cut myself in a place would it make me bleed to the point I'd have to go to the hospital cause then I wouldn't have to go to the place that causes me the most pain. But I'm better now and I no longer cut. So if you're someone that cuts and doesn't think there is anyone that cares you're wrong.

Paige - Posted on April 01, 2014

This has nothing to do with my story but mom's best friend, who is like a second mother. Her son passed away at 2:00 am on Monday, March 31. He was only 8 weeks old. I would like everyone, if they want to, to say a prayer for Michael. He was like a little brother to me. Please keep this family in thought and prayer.

Emma - Posted on March 31, 2014

For many years I suffered depression and anxiety; I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 18 years ago. I felt so all alone for the majority of my life, so I self medicated for over 20 years. Then I experienced the worse tragedy ever; my son was murdered. His murder was the catalyst for me surrendering my life to Christ and I am now at a place in my life where everyday is wonderful; I am at peace and I have a joy that overflows to the lives of others. When God whispered to me to take the pain and help those who need help, I never knew where that would lead but I was obedient and now my life has come full circle. I am in the process of acquiring my Masters Degree in Addiction Counseling and I feel absolutely wonderful.

Louise - Posted on March 31, 2014

Hi, I'm Louise and I'm 14 years old. I don't want to share my own story right now because my main priority is every other person who has submitted their story. I just want you to know I have felt exactly the same way as all of you; you are not alone. You are one in a million. Even though you may feel like nothing, you are worth it. Live your life; look forward to the future as hard as it may be and most importantly, tell yourself you're a survivor. May God Bless you all.

Jessica - Posted on March 31, 2014

My name is Jessica.I pray that my story will help someone. I know life is not easy, but keep your eyes on God, because he is the only one that can help you, when things looks like there is no hope. Two years ago, things got so bad for me at one point, I felt like dying because I couldn't take it anymore. I looked everywhere for help, but did not get it. One night I sat on my bed and I cried and cried. I knelt down and prayed to God and asked him to take me out of this world because I donít want to be part of it anymore. I was ready to die; I was so numb all I wanted was to be dead in the morning. I remember praying that night and said my goodbyes. In the morning I felt myself move; I was so disappointed. I asked God why? Why is he keeping me alive? That's when I realized that my life is worth living. God has something better for me.

Tesha - Posted on March 31, 2014

I watch this movie over and over again and I'm inspired by it.<br /> I got saved at age eleven and was filled with the Holy Spirit .<br /> A lot of things happened in my life both good and bad. I was raped. <br /> I was at a point were I cursed God. How can he love me and let that happen<br /> to me? But I learned that through every bad situation God is always lifted up. As for Jake in the movie, I would love to talk to Jake personally so that one day my story might just save a life. To God be praise.<br />

Leighanne - Posted on March 31, 2014

Well, it all started when the bullies started calling me names such as<br /> ugly, suicidal, fat, stupid, and ect. That's when I started cutting and started writing suicide notes and tried attempting suicide. I know how it feels to be alone in church. I'd be the outcast and I still am. Get it; I'm worthless. I'm easily used. Is there anyone that can help me before I kill myself. Please, I need help.

Recovery isn't something you ever finish. You have to keep working at it, and no matter what, you can't stop. I was a cutter. Even after I got caught, I continued cutting. It is beyond me how I was never caught again. It took a year longer than it should have for me to realize that it's. Not. Worth it. Recovery isn't easy, but believe me, it is possible. Just remember that.
