Kris - Posted on October 19, 2014

Hey, so I've never told anyone my story before. Well, my mom was a meth addict. She was never home and when she was it was with a new guy. I grew up that way. (I'm 16) When I was 13 she kicked me out for 8 months. I lived out of a trash bag full of cloths. I found a girl, met my dad and soon moved in with him. I made this girl my world, and she left me. I had nothing left. So, I went completely crazy and tried to kill myself in the end. I've been in 17 facilities. I was forced to get my GED. I'm home now and more lost than ever... I think I need help, but I don't know what to do?? Help.

To help a person in life, we do not expect anything from that person. <br /> It makes us happy to help a person, to save a life. It's the correct thing to do.<br /> <br /> <br />

I am 17 years old. Ever since elementary school I've been bullied. I've been pushed into lockers, people called me names, and spit on me, literally. I thought to myself, "How could I live with this?" I came close to committing suicide myself, but once I figured out that I do have people that love me, I didn't. And one of them was God, I know for sure. Through it all I was their easy target. Now I've learned how to stand up to them and do what God would want me to do.

I know it's not easy, but there is a force within each of us that is called courage, faith and hope. Each is able to use it. God bless you all and grant us strength, courage and determination. I learned to love you without knowing you.

Pierre-Luc - Posted on October 17, 2014

I am a 27 year old man. When I was a teen, I was bullied. I tried to get help in a middle school in Laval, but the teacher and educator was not helping me and let me be in trouble without any help. I was thinking maybe in high school it might be better, but it wasn't. It was worse. Everyone bullied me when I tried to speak. It got worse. All of the teens refused to stop bullying me. The same thing happened if i told them nicely. They mocked my kindness and humiliated me because I defended myself because someone was reading my e-mail. That was the worse day of my life. I wanted to kill myself, but with time I began to not care anymore. I still think the world is so cold.

Alicia - Posted on October 15, 2014

My story, well I am 16 years old. I live in East Surry. I have been bullied since I was 5 years old. I have been through so much. At 13 I lost my dad. I hadn't seen my mom since I was 6 months old, so you can say I was virtually alone. I have self harmed. I have attempted suicide, and as you can tell I failed or I wouldn't be sitting here typing this now. I have learned that even when life gets hard, you're never truly alone. GOD is always there. I know what you are going through! I am here for you, trust me I feel your pain. I still go through it every day! I am here if you need me.

I'm 15 years old and I didn't believe in God until I saw this movie. I hated my life. Everyone treated me like I was nothing, but I thought and I realized that's how I was treating people, so I started to be a little nicer to people around me and now I have friends and a boyfriend. Just the thought that the other day I wanted to commit suicide but only a little change gives me my life back. And I go to church cause I love learning about God.

Carol - Posted on October 13, 2014

Hello, my name is Carol and I live in Brazil. My parents are always fighting and I think I am the reason. I tried various kinds of help, but it helped. I went to church for some time. Today I do not believe in God. In 2009 my best friend and godmother died of cancer. It was very difficult to handle that, it was really complicated. Since I lost my grandfather, his father, went into depression. Miss him so much, and my grandmother cries every day. I entered the world of alcohol and drugs, and I smoke every day. My parents obviously aren't happy, and took me to several psychologists and psychiatrists, but it solved nothing. I cut myself, I know it's silly, but it's the only way, in addition to marijuana, that makes me feel any better. I cry every day, and never tell anyone about my story. I don't know if, in fact, it will help me in posting it here, but I think it's my last option. I'm getting sick of everything, I don't know if I can take more .. <br />

Jamie - Posted on October 13, 2014

I lost a brother to suicide when I was 14. I blamed myself for it and struggled with suicidal thoughts. My whole family was gripped with fear and decided I should take heavy doses of anti-psychotics. I spent 8 years as a zombie not knowing myself or anyone else. Numb, brainless, robotic. I was homeless in a tent for a while.<br /> <br /> But God saves. I have life again now. He puts resources in me to help my family and the people I meet. He brings me to conferences, events, and seminars. He uses me to influence world-leaders. He puts people around me who love and support me. He even saves lives through me.<br /> <br /> God has a plan for you too. You are His son/daughter and he loves you. If we will love him with all our hearts, minds, and souls He works all things out for our good! Take hope, there's more to your life than today. I know that patience can seem like the worst advice sometimes but, trust me, it's worth the wait.

Nadia - Posted on October 12, 2014

Hi Monica, be strong. Whoever you are I just want to say that you are worth it. Jesus loves you. I was lonely at times. Many times I felt like giving up, but I'm always comforted by the word of God. I read it again and again. Psalm 34:17 said "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles." I know it's not easy, but every day is a battle of choice whether you want to trust the lies from the devil, or you want to trust God and His all powerful might? The nook of Psalm is really rich in the promises of God. As I'm writing this, I'm also struggling with a pain in my head for months. I was mistreated and felt lonely at times. But trusting God every day and knowing that there is hope really helps. Read the scriptures, listen to spiritual songs, and believe it will happen to you. Hebrew 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Jasmine. - Posted on October 11, 2014

My name is Jasmine. I have watched this movie a lot and have recommended it to a lot of teenagers struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts/attempts, self-harm, and bullying.<br /> I am 18 and I want to say a summed up version of my story. My first suicidal attempt was when I was 7. I was clearly very lonely at home and had nobody to talk to. My 2 year old baby cousin was murdered and there were other deaths that year. Also I've been through sexual abuse at a young age. Since 7, I have been struggling with self-harm/cutting for 6 years, anorexia, been cyber bullied through Facebook/school/phones, sexually abused and physically abused a few times. I do need to say, everybody's different. But nobody deserves any of those terrible things to happen to them in their life. Just know to whoever is reading this, and may have suffered some of these things, You Are Not Alone! it is a terrible thing to be dealing with. Just have hope and goals for yourself. Keep them. And remember to Stay Strong. God bless..

I have been bullied all my life. I've had people that I care about commit suicide. I cut my wrist, and I've almost committed suicide myself a lot of times. If it wasn't for my friend Lily, right now I wouldn't be here. She walked into my house once right when I was about to shoot myself. She fought me to grab the gun and she saved me. At school she promised not to tell anybody and she still hasn't. Everyone makes fun of me for being bisexual or because I got held back a grade. I was going to do something I was gonna regret but Lily talked me out of it. I'm just glad someone cares.
