Jennifer - Posted on December 01, 2014<br /> <br /> I know you believe in God. You're just saying you don't because of those things that happened to you. Praying and believing in God may be as you have said don't solve anything but one thing I am sure about, it gives us courage to face challenges in life. I think that's what happened to you my friend. Because of your prayer you've gained courage to face those challenges without noticing it. ^_^<br /> God is good my friend!!!

Hi guys. I know this world is dark and scary, but we can change it because all of us have a dark side. We can get over it. We can meet new friends who are just like us. We can be change. So, my wish is I don't wanna end up like this movie story, and be just a film story. I want to start it for real, so I decided to create a "What's Up?" group for people like me, like us, so join me in this battle of life and make your life worth living. It doesn't matter where you are from, we all are human beings. We all can change. God bless u guyz, love u.

Fisher - Posted on December 11, 2014

I'm a 14 year old straight guy. I'm a Christian and I'm really struggling to believe in God. I go to church, but I just feel so different and out of place. I go to a Christian school...but I don't feel like I belong there at all. I'm only one out of the 1-3 kids who cut themselves. I tried to stop for a while...but I can't. I try not to dwell on suicide, so that's why I cut. I love my family...but I'm the odd, depressed angry kid. I don't know. I just really can't find beauty in life. It's just not enjoyable, and more and more often I think about suicide and cutting. Life just gets too hard sometimes. All the time.

Hello my name is Drea. I am 23 years old. When I was 10 years old I got raped by my mother's boyfriend off and on for 2 years. When I finally got the courage to tell my mother, she wasn't so believing. My rapist was sent to jail for 5 years and my mother was still in contact with him. I was so hurt I moved away from her and tried to start a new life with other family members. Nothing ever felt like home. Wen I turned 17 I got a job and moved out on my own. In life I feel so alone but I strive to continue going. My relationship with my mother is still a lil rocky cause I never got to express what I really feel about her.

I stumbled across this movie and really liked the description so I watched it. I was filled with mixed emotions. The feeling of joy that Gods love and saving grace was shown in this film but also the pain and sadness of seeing what some teenagers are going through. I feel sorry, cross and disappointed in how society is causing people to feel and do. I just want to encourage those out there that are going through turmoil to remember that God is with you and that there are others that want to support you and help you, people who care and want to listen. I pray that you find that person.

Andrew - Posted on December 08, 2014

I was one of the popular kids in school and it still didn't help. I constantly had my confidence beaten down from my father. The one person I fought to be proud of I could never and still struggle to do. He once told me I was the son he never wanted. I faced more rejection than I could handle. Being a kid for anyone is tough and it's important to know you are never alone. We all need someone through our journey in life. I've seen suicide through myself and grown up surrounded by it with my father and sister. Love your neighbor as yourself. Speak up and be a friend to all. Let love fill your hearts and let it flow unto those around you. Our minds are capable of making a heaven out of hell, or a hell out of heaven. Take the negatives and build yourself into a stronger person from them. Thoughts and prayers with all!

Hi, my name is Nicole and I was touched by this movie. I have thought life would be better if I was gone and nobody would care but I was touched and it made me feel worthy and important. I encourage you to help people out there or ask for help if you need it. You are never alone. God will always be there for u and he wants to help you. You just need to ask for help. God Bless x

Kawthar - Posted on December 04, 2014

I went through a phase when I was 15 (now 20). I attempted suicide.<br /> Unresolved issues from my childhood had a lot to do with it along with <br /> things that were happening at that time. <br /> <br /> I was sexually abused when I was 12; my dad didn't believe me for a long time.<br /> Turned out the man who did that to me also did it to my cousins. The man got awaywith it by fleeing the country. I think it's important to remember that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. I wanted to kill that man.I spent the next 4 years walking around with a knife.<br /> I want everyone to know that sadness doesn't last, nor does happiness and that we should embrace both and be thankful for what we have. Even though that man got away, my only wish is that he has stopped his actions. I hope he has repented and that he is at a better place in his life.<br /> If anyone needs someone to talk to, write me here. I'm here for you.

Sam (15) - Posted on December 03, 2014

I'm alone. But no one realizes. None of my teachers talk to me or care to ask how I am. They don't know I'm there. I've been a cutter since I was 10. My friend committed suicide when I was barely 12. I hate the way I look and just who I am in general. Life is a misery and I know that when I get older it will be even worse because no one will love me. Everything will be too stressful. Sorry this ain't one of those 'inspirational stories'. But it's my story, and that's the only thing I know anymore.<br /> Thank you for reading

I just saw your movie and it was really inspiring and I just thought it was going to be lame. I have friends like that. I just had a friend who died. She had some kind of cancer. And my dad just died a couple of weeks after I started high school.
