Matthew - Posted on October 24, 2014

Divorce. Frequent moving of schools. Bullied through age 10-13. Isolated through ages 14-16. Another divorce. Endured a: Cruel father, alcoholic grandfather, control freak grandmother, and manipulative step-dad (he tried to twist my family's moral beliefs into what he wanted-he was good at it too. He wanted the 'perfect family'). Now I'm 17 and living in a small town. I have a bit of backbone now, and I am still a nice person as well, however I can't really get past the whole 'being bored with life'. At this point nothing seems to matter. I do have high ambitions and I do have God, those things are all that's keeping me going. Without them I would have killed myself a long time ago. I actually tried to strike the nerve to do it a couple of times when a I was younger, but always kept 'Chickening out'. Now I'm just waiting. Who knows, maybe life might actually get better? <br />

Shena - Posted on October 23, 2014

14 years old. I had a boyfriend at 15 years old; he raped me and I got pregnant. Then I went home and then followed my boyfriend who began hitting me. Back home and got a job. I just thought about having money to support my son. I met a guy and went to live with him. At 18, I left pregnant again, but now with a husband. Well, thought that was a family. One day when I got home I found him with another woman. I got to work and I trained in a gym (martial arts) to be stronger, and to finish school. I was a fighter; now a coach, but nothing made me happy. One day, I met Christ and he changed my life. Now I am 27 years old. I am married to a Christian guy. I am living a life blessed by God. I'm living the love I did not think existed, but God came into my life to show me what true love is--love of mother, daughter, wife, love of myself. GOD teaches me to forgive, to forgive myself.

Landon - Posted on October 23, 2014

So my bio dad raped my mom, and left before I was born. We grew up on and off welfare, until my mom married my step dad, who was abusive. Now she's married to my second step dad and my life hasn't really been better. I still struggle with self harm and depression, but i'm getting better every day... It's good to know I have people looking out for me.

Trinity - Posted on October 20, 2014

When I was in 6th grade, I thought that life wasn't worth it, so I started to cut. It got so bad to where I had to go to the hospital because my mom thought I was going to kill myself. I thought about it, and I tried it but I never succeeded at it. I got a message from my older sister saying "If you cut any more, I won't call you my sister anymore." So I took that to heart because she is my best friend and I didn't want to lose her. I guess it helped me because I quit cutting but it's still hard not to.

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 />

Juan - Posted on October 17, 2014

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.
