Vinamra - Posted on March 09, 2016

Hey, I'm from India. I just watched the movie and loved it. Made me think that someone would actually care if I wanted to die. And also that I can be there to stop someone to even get suicidal thoughts. Okay, my issue right now is about why I wasn't feeling right because my 12th grade board exams are going on and 2 of them went really bad. I think I might fail my exams. But it is not socially acceptable at all and I don't want to fail. I do trust God, but nothing ever good happens to me and it makes me lose hope. I've had suicidal thoughts since grade 7, suffered depression and all kinds of crap. Hope God gives all the strength and luck I need and the millions of others too who need him at one point or the other.

I don't write good English. I'm from Belgium. This afternoon I saw the movie. Thank God for it. I was crying like a child. I also cut meself, burned myself before God came into my life. I'm 60 years old now but whatever your problem may be...there is always a solution. Talk to your pastor. Talking about everything that is wrong in your life is important. You can write me here and I will listen. Do it. It can save your life and change it also. 30 years ago I found someone who listened to my story and it changed my live.

Bailey - Posted on March 09, 2016

I have a friend. Let's just call her Quinn. I've known Quinn since the fifth grade and we're still really good friends till this day. In early 2014, Quinn was on my mind a lot. I found out that summer that Quinn tried to kill herself. That broke me as I was so selfish and only focused on myself. I was too afraid to talk to her or invite her to church that I blamed her attempted suicide on myself. When I look back, I realized that I WAS in fact, being selfish. I realize that we always have opportunities to speak life and be the light of Christ to people but we're too afraid. But we can't be afraid. You could literally save a life if you just get up and speak up. I can say that Quinn is alive and well today and we keep in touch :) Don't keep Jesus to yourself. Share Him. Save a life.

Over 3 years I have been beside my mom as cancer took her. I quit my job to take care of my father, only to lose him to alcohol & grief. I lost my husband of 16 years to suicide, my sister to an accident, my grandmother, and had to put down my 10 year old dog I had since he was a puppy. Cancer got the best of him too. Today is mom's birthday & her absence is profound. I miss my family. I feel lost. Not sure why God took everybody from me and left me here alone.

Emma - Posted on February 27, 2016

Hi, I was born in Ukraine. When my mom was pregnant with me, she got very sick. I had trouble breathing. I was very close to death. The doctors were surprised that I survived. My story is that when I grew older, I was bullied every day. I had friends who made fun of me and how I talked. How I looked. They would say very mean things to me. They called me Ugly. I was not very beautiful. They really hated me so much. They said that I talked ugly. I was always a burden to my family. Even to this day, I am such a burden to my family. It's like they don't love me at all. Some days I just wish that I was not born. There were times where I just wanted to die. But I know it is a sin to take my own life. To this day, I donít even have a lot of friends that I can talk to. I feel like everybody hates me so much.

Nurul - Posted on February 25, 2016

Actually this is such a long story, and I don't know where I should start. Since I was little, my parents always fought each other which led me to hating my father, because sometimes he hit my mother. He always blamed my mother, and he often lies to my mother even now. My father has married another women while he is STILL married to my mother. I have no intention of accepting my new mother, because she often wants to have my father all by herself. And because of that every time my father comes home, he always fights with my mom. I don't know why, recently he acted so calm and tried to convince me that if I don't respect him, I will regret it for the rest of my life.

Harold - Posted on February 23, 2016

Hello and greetings to all. I understand a bit of English and I have read that many here have all sorts of problems. Mine is drug addiction and it is not easy. It is due to many things in my past that were not easy. I tried leaving it alone but it has me trapped because I'm not strong enough. I have not sought help but believe in God. Watching this movie will help me to want to be stronger and leave the madnes (drugs) behind. I wish for all here to feel strong and good. I am thinking this with faith and hope. Thank you. A big hug for everyone!

Cameron - Posted on February 21, 2016

Years of holding back and pretending I'm fine. Hidden below this mask of smiles, was pain. I thought that I would recover and get back to normal. Finally, sitting on the end of my bed, I looked, through tear-strewn eyes, and thinking about ending my life. I picked up the phone. I called the Samaritans. Two hours later, more clear-headed, I looked back on what I had been preparing to do with horror. What had drawn me out of my dark reverie? Talking. An act as simple as talking - something which, when you are in the grips of severe melancholy, can be so hard to do - had saved me. At your own pace, open up. You'll be surprised by the closeness that talking about your innermost sufferings will bring you with your friends and family. I was ready to embrace the comforting thought of not existing. I talked, I talked again, and I carried on talking. It helps. Please talk.

Megan - Posted on February 20, 2016

Hi, I've struggled with addiction in my past. They were sinful addictions that I felt so ashamed and felt so unworthy of God's love. My parents fought constantly and my older brother fell into drug addictions. I thought I was going to lose him. I lost control of myself and took out all my problems and got into a lot of bad habits with guys. It got to the point where everyone thought iIwas a slut and I felt so alone and would question why God would let this happen to me. But recently my life has changed because God has fully entered not only my life, but also my family's when we least expected. That's what our God does, swoops in when you least expect it. Never give up. Never lose hope. He will always be there, I promise you. HE LOVES YOU

Hi! You cannot imagine how many things I would like to tell you. Invite a friend for a coffee and then give them a hug to say "Here I am!" I know how important it is for a person to have a pillar, someone to trust. I also know how invigorating it is to meet someone new to break all your schemes and make you see the world differently. I thought maybe if someone wanted to write, you could write me here. I'm from Argentina, by the way! Greetings and I'm here!<br />
