Wellyton - Posted on March 06, 2015

I live in Brazil. Today I'm 18, but my story begins early on.<br /> When I was about 7 years old I almost drowned in a swimming pool. After being saved, I learned I had only 3 SECONDS or I would have lost my life. But I had not known Jesus. When I arrived at the stage of teenage years, I started using marijuana, drinking all sorts of alcoholic beverages, and lived in homosexuality. Sometimes I felt happy, but it was brief. Sometimes I felt like crap. I felt alone, and I began to self abuse. I lived a very bad life.<br />     The first time I went into a church was not cool, no. I had blue hair, I dressed differently and everyone looked at me. I thought they were judging me. But one day I was invited to go on a youth retreat and there I accepted Jesus. From there on my life has only improved. I will not say that I have no evidence of struggles. I'd be lying; we all have, but with Jesus we are victorious.

Life is wild. It is all about struggling to live, with no hope of a better future. To me I wish life was a storybook; maybe then I would be able to plan my life better. Everything around seems frustrating. Sometimes I wonder, has God created me just to see me mourn everyday. But I have come to realise that if I don't understand what life is then I can't understand myself. THANKS and God bless u all as u allow him to lead u thru life. Best wishes

I was twelve when I almost committed suicide. I remember the day as if it were yesterday. I was standing in the kitchen, washing dishes and I held a knife in my hand. I was bullied in school, barely had any friends, and my family was off doing their own thing. In that moment I thought if I had died no one would care. Everyone would be so much happier without me. If God had not intervened, I wouldn't have seen my 20th birthday or be married. I am truly thankful for Him. I wish to help those who were like me.

Paow - Posted on March 01, 2015

Hey guys. My Name is Paula, well my one friend calls me Paow, lol. I am 16 years old. My English is not the best because I am from Sweden. I have been bullied since the third grade. I did not really fit in. I did not like how they joked with people's clothing or their looks. So then I became one of the bullied too. I am bullied at school and at home too. I get negative comments from my parents. My parents and people at school and online are calling me awful things that make me think that it's true. I have been in two foster homes but I have never fit in. Now I live at home again. But with God's hand in mine I can do anything and I am so greatful. I want to thank my best friend for always being there for me no matter what. And if someone is going through the same thing, I will pray for you. Amen

BD - Posted on February 26, 2015

My story began on 12/26/14. I had found out my dad committed suicide. The first thing I did was blame myself. It's been two months now and this week I watched your movie and it helped me to understand that it wasn't my fault. I feel like I could connect with the Jake character because I knew what he was going through. but I am know going to church and working on my faith and serving God.

Kayla - Posted on February 26, 2015

I'm 18 now, but two years ago, I didn't think I'd make it to now. I cut myself and was depressed all the time. I hated myself for it, which made me hurt more. I had everything I could want: Good friends, a Christian family, a Christian education. But something was missing. I tried many things. A boyfriend, too early in life. Cutting. Getting myself into a lesbian relationship. I was really messed up, and it was taking a toll on me. Mom and dad didn't know what I was doing, until they found poems, that I had written, in my drawer. Then, they were really worried. They took me to the BEST therapist/counselor in the world. She helped me stop cutting and find God. He showed me, through Stephanie, that He loved me far too much for me to be hurting myself. Now, I don't cut, and am totally straight. I always remember that even when I was doing the worst things, God loved me. I just needed someone to show me. :)

Kristi - Posted on February 21, 2015

Hi, My name is Kristi. I am someone who is very much out there and is very bright and bubbly. However I used to see people get bullied because they were the outcasts and they weren't considered "Normal." However, just because I was friends with everyone it didn't mean I didn't know what it was like to be alone. I recently just lost my little sister in an accident and before that I lost one of my friends who I had helped out to commit suicide. But I signed up to be a peer supporter at school helping people through any problem they might have. I am glad to have the opportunity to help other people out with their problems or just to have someone to talk to. I am glad to be able to say I have changed peoples lives as well as my own by knowing that we are not alone!

Brianna - Posted on February 20, 2015

Hey everyone, I just wanted to share a bit of my life story with you guys. You guys probably all grew up with a loving mother and father whether it was foster care or adoption, I grew up raising myself and my younger sister named Kaylynn. She is about to be 15 now and I'm about to be 17. I'm proud to say if it wasn't for me watching this movie and my faith in God I wouldn't be here because I have been to hell and back. I was raped from the age of 5 until I was about 12 or 13. My mom was in a rehab for a drug addiction; she is abusive, and I donít see my dad much. Most of my life I was beaten, raped, and starved. Well I have found out that I have a bleeding disorder. I found out like 4 or 5 months ago. If any of you want to talk, please write me here.

Stephanie - Posted on February 17, 2015

I recently went on a church retreat and was blessed with watching this amazing movie. To all those out there in search of answers and a better life, have faith. Put your problems into the hands of our Lord and he will help. Remember that God wants for all of us to love each other, and thanks to this movie I have realized that. I have been through some things too, been there done that. But life will get better, and it will go on. Stay optimistic and open your mind to all things that are possible with the help of God. You all have a friend in me; let's keep united and help each other through the best/worst of times.

Beatriz - Posted on February 16, 2015

I am Brazilian. I'm 14 years old. My faith has not been large enough to face my problems. I have let good people go away from my life. I believe in God. But I still feel alone and useless, and I let anxiety and fear stifle me. GOD HAS given me dreams in which I won over fear. He made me feel the force that a person can have when you are close to Him. Sometimes I feel like Jonny Garcia, but I know I need someone like an Andrea right next to me, to strengthen me in the worst moments. I will always remember this movie.
