Emilie - Posted on April 19, 2015

Hi, My name is Emilie McNeil. I'm married. I'm 19 years old. Right now I'm going through a pretty hard time. I'm always wanting to cut again or be anorexic. I know I can't because I made that promise to myself, so I help out others in need, but remember people can only take you half way. I just know God is with me and my husband as well. I felt really alone during my high school years. NO one talked to me and I got a rep. I started cutting in middle school, 8th grade, and not eating in 8th. I'm wanting to go back to it because of really bad and sad things that have happened. That's all I want to say. I just had a rough middle start. <br /> <br /> Contact me here if you want to talk or need help. :) <br /> -Emi <3

I watched this movie for the first time about a year ago, and while it struck a chord in me I never thought I would have someone close to me commit suicide. But then a friend of mine did. He wasn't bullied, he was suffering from depression, and would always say he couldn't handle it anymore. I never did anything, because I didn't believe he would actually do anything. It kills me that I didn't take the two seconds to assure him that he was loved and had friends that truly cared for him. It made me realize that if I did the same thing there would be some people who would be just as torn up about my death as I am about his. I learned that no matter what don't ignore anyone saying they are unhappy.

As a child I didn't know what friendship was. Even though I wanted to know, no one told me. I became a shell at 13. I didn't want to hear what all the adults were saying. I was picked on in school until high school, by then though the damage was already done. So I got depressed and dropped out. I did want to kill myself some times and sometimes other people. But God has changed me so much. When I was 17, I finally made a real relationship with Jesus Christ. At 15 when I chose to be a Christian, I didn't know about confessing my sins and that He died for my sins and rose from the dead. I told my one best friend about it, who was 15 too at the time. And that's when the healing began. There's no going back now, cause Jesus is apart of my life and there is no other way! I Love You Jesus! My Life, My All In All!

Adam - Posted on April 18, 2015

My sister died when I was 14 and I am 25 now. She was murdered. It made my teenage years even worse than normal. Depression, cutting, burning, suicidal thoughts. I thought it was my fault that she died, that if I was there, then I could've saved her. The truth is that there was nothing I could've done then to save her. Remember that people you love may die but be thankful that you had the time to be with them before they were taken back to God. I had 14 years with my sister and until my time comes, I will remember to live.

Ally - Posted on April 16, 2015

When I was 13, I started to be bullied. I couldn't go a day without someone belittling me. I didn't think there was a way out. In September of 2013, I started self harming. It got to be really bad, and I needed help. I just felt so worthless, like there was no hope. On January 23, 2014, I met my boyfriend Tyler and he was suicidal just like me. We helped each other get out of it and now I have not harmed myself in about 8 months. It gets so much better, I promise! Just keep holding on!

Effy - Posted on April 16, 2015

Perhaps no one reads this, but still I write. I'm 14 and for some time I have thought about suicide. From primary school all the time I was alone and friendless. When I entered high school I started to cut and do drugs. Later I overdosed and nearly died. That's when it really hit me all the time lost. But a friend saved my life.

Anthony - Posted on April 16, 2015

My name is Anthony. I am from Ghana, and I am 18 yrs of age, not all that grown up but I think in life every problem can be solved. Beloved, we are not talking about committing suicide, cutting or drinking or any other drug to make you feel better. Please, for God's sake, we are all human beings. If there is a great problem that you think you can not get over please pray to God first. Secondly, you can share it with someone you think you trust like your parents, pastor, a close teacher, or a close friend. Please be ready to listen to them as they try to help you out. Again suicide, cutting or drinking, or taking drugs won't help at all. Thank you very much. May God uplift you from your problems and troubles.

Nina - Posted on April 16, 2015

I've always been having hard times to explain myself to others. I'm scared of being judged. I feel disgusted with myself, etc. But most times, I let it all out, through art, specifically videos, pretending that artwork is based on someone else when truth is, it's all me. One video I made on YouTube is called 'Lying with a bright smile feels safer.'

Eli - Posted on April 13, 2015

Well, this is my good story. Since childhood I've always felt that my life sucked. It all started at school with bullying. Everyone looked at me weird. Now I'm in the high school and I still feel the same. For me, nothing changes. I don't see life differently and although surrounded by friends who want me, I feel alone every day and hide my sadness after laughing. I have a psychologist who helps me.

Miguel - Posted on April 10, 2015

I am Miguel. I'm from Panama. All my life I have had no friends because I suffer from epilepsy. People laughed at me, which led me several times to attempt suicide.<br /> I need help :(

That movie changed my life, that's all. I changd a lot after seeing the movie. It shows us the reality that life is a privilege, to cling to it and not to waste it.<br /> Dyanne, Dominican Republic.

Alyssa - Posted on April 09, 2015

Hi, my name is Alyssa. I'm 17 years old. I have been dealing with cutting and self harm since I was in grade 7 due to feeling alone all the time and bullying online. Self harm was my only escape. I was judged because of it. I have lost people over it. People honestly don't know how I felt and they didn't know why I did what I did. I also treated my body like it was nothing. I treated it like a piece of dirt and I tried to hide my feelings and past.
