Celine - Posted on April 20, 2014

Hi! This is my second time posting here but today I'm not going to share my story (I can't find my previous post) What I'm going to share is a suggestion for those who find it hard to get over their addictions. I'm sixteen and I have been keeping a journal for almost one year now. That's where I write down my feelings when I feel no one is willing to listen—except God. I always start my entry with ‘Dear God’ and then whatever I feel like letting go of, I write it all there. It usually makes me feel better. You can also watch the movie ‘Letters to God’ if you feel like giving up, which is based on a true story. Tyler is an inspiration. I hope this helps. :)

Mary - Posted on April 19, 2014

Hey , so I'm Mary and I'm 17 years old. I've cut myself a few times when I was younger. Maybe because I always felt unhappy. I'm always imagining situations in my life where I am happy. I have problems in connecting with people. I have some friends, but I feel better alone. Even when I'm with them I feel lonely so I guess it does not make much difference to be with them or not. I think it's not in my dna be happy. I cannot enjoy happiness like a normal person.

I wanted to tell you that you're not alone. God is always by your side, just open your heart to feel his presence! Jesus died to give you life, so live! He cares about you; he loves you!!

Hi. I know that this is what we all have, the light we have in our dreams. What is that light? Some may say love. Some might say it's faith. But it's none of that. I'm a 14 year old boy who thought that there was no hope anymore. If you are still wondering what the light is, it is our friends and families. If we just do something right in our lives maybe there won't be the words tired and overworked. There is always a way. What I'm trying to say is follow the path that the light of our dreams has given to us.

Chloe - Posted on April 18, 2014

Hey, I am 15 years old. About three years ago my nan died. I was really close. My whole family was falling apart slowly. Then the next year, in December, my mum and dad had this fight. My dad bashed my mum. I hated my mum for a year or more. During the school holidays I started taking these steroids I had for my asthma, and then I started to cut myself where people couldn't see it. And I didn't eat as much food. Me and one of my brothers were really close. When dad wasn't around we had so much anger in us, and he started smoking but he was only 9. I guess I am still trying to handle it. I've always been the strong one. The hardest thing is that I haven't told anyone about this.

You thought that suicide is the best solution? I've thought so too ... but when God wasn't in my life. If nothing works, you will not find sense of the world. Try God. His response aren't fast, as in the movie, but if you have faith, you will see God's love reflected in all the positive things that you will pass. Now, my solution is different; ask for help from God.

Lilibeth - Posted on April 16, 2014

Hello, I'm Lilibeth. I'm on vacation and I feel very alone. It was the same when I was in college. I'm not very social. Most of my days were sad, from family problems. My friends say I never smile. I am 16 years old and have not been happy in my life. I see people complaining about being unhappy for having parents they feel did not want them. We all just need someone to help.

Lisa - Posted on April 16, 2014

Hi, I'm Lisa and I'm from The Netherlands. This movie really inspired me. I did cutting too. And even now I think about it sometimes. A few years ago I wanted to commit suicide. But I've learned a lot of things now and I'm really happy now. <br /> This movie is very good for people with problems like that. I am going to the church, but I have my doubts about God. But I'm still discovering stuff.<br /> Anybody who is in trouble, please go talk with somebody! It will work! That's how it worked with me and it's reaaally going better.<br /> Anyway, this movie rocks.<br /> PEACE out!

Jennifer - Posted on April 13, 2014

I have a tip for you. I cut myself. I felt like an idiot, but one day God had a meeting with me. I really wanted to hear what he had to say. I was busy with parties, drinks, and I didn't care what people thought of me. I was blind. I did not see what I was doing and always felt empty. But when I stopped to listen, he showed me that he loves me more than anyone can love me. He taught me that no matter what they will say, he would take care of me. He wants me near him. He wants me to make a difference and I want to go around talking about that love. Always help those in need.

Veronica - Posted on April 12, 2014

Hello, I want to talk a little about my life and what God, since I met him, has changed. From 3rd to 2nd primary school I was bullied. My mom or my grandmother or aunt or godmother spoke with teachers and the principal abut this but they were not doing anything. A year ago I met God and he really helped my fears and my past memories. I know God completely healed the wounds I had and I know he will continue to guide me. I made the decision to be baptized in my congregation. This Saturday is the date of baptism and I'm sure of this: GOD HEALS WOUNDS ALL THE TIME.

Rosalita - Posted on April 12, 2014

Hi, my name is Rosalita. I'm from the Netherlands and I get hit by my parents. I cut myself. I get into big problems, but I met a guy last summer and he is helping me out and we are in love. My parents don't like the idea because I'm 15 and he is 22. Now, everything is getting worse. We don't talk anymore because of my parents.

Lulu - Posted on April 12, 2014

I just watched this movie and it affected me in two ways. It made me appreciate people, but it also made me feel a little selfish.<br /> When I clicked on this website, I didn't know what to expect and reading all of these stories made me think. Okay, so why am I complaining or feel this urge to go on here when people have it a lot harder? One of the stories that got to me was one about a girl that had cancer and was actually bullied about it. I just never understand how people can be so harsh towards others in suffering. I was never treated as unfairly as some of the people on here have been treated. But, it's sad to say that I have kept silent when I should have stuck up for someone being mistreated. I'm not asking for sympathy or appreciation. I'm just letting you know that there is one less person who will remain silent when something needs to be said.
