Hey, I just finished watching the movie and I loved it. I used to be suicidal but recently have only been mildly depressed or feeling alone even though I have friends and people around me. This movie makes me wish I had a bigger community. I go to a small school so I know basically everyone. My dad runs a youth group. I feel like nobody takes it seriously and it annoys me but I know that if I say anything the people around me just won't care because it happens all the time. Anyway, I'm not that great at comfort but if anyone wants to talk you could write me here.<br /> Thanks for reading this probably boring and useless thing c:

My story isn't a happy one. It's not pretty. But it's real. Five of my close friends have attempted/seriously considered suicide. Just recently my best friend tried to kill himself again. And this time it worked. The devastation he left behind him is shocking. He let himself believe that no one would care if he died. In truth, everyone that knew and loved him are broken. If you are considering suicide, just know that your life is precious. No matter how much the enemy tries to deceive you, you DO have people who love you, and you ARE worth so much. Talk to someone you trust, I promise they will be more than happy to help. For everyone else, be aware and open to the people around you. And go hug your family and friends, because you never know when your last day with them will be. If you're reading this today, Jesus loves you and you're not alone. For you, my little Teeto, I love you and I miss you. Fly high.

I'm really struggling with depression and feel very lonely.. I can never talk to my parents about anything... and I stopped hanging out with the kids I was because they were doing drugs. Ever since I did that I have like no friends and the one friend I have is always too busy for me. It really hurts. My mom tried getting me on medication but I always spit it out cuz it gets me all weird. I tried going to youth group to find something and maybe become closer to God but nothing has happened. I lost the one person who meant the world to me, the one person who cared.. and now I have no one. I'm suicidal and no one is giving me a reason to stay alive... I am almost positive that I have no purpose, no matter what my friend or family says... and I'm sure if God himself came down and told me I had purpose, I wouldn't believe it..

Dear, Sabrina, I can only imagine the hurt you are feeling, but my husband went through a similar situation, being abandoned by his father when he was just a baby. His favorite saying is "God doesn't waste pain", also Psalm 68:5, which promises that God will be a Father to the fatherless. God is faithful when no one else is. My husband has found the strength to not only forgive, but to allow God to use his story of hurt and loneliness to minister to others as a youth leader. We will be praying for you, that God would give you also the grace to overcome your family situation and to thrive for him in spite of your hurt.

Dakota - Posted on January 29, 2016

I sometimes feel that I should do something to myself, but can't because I know I can't hurt myself or others. I always ask myself "Why was I ever born?" I now live in Minnesota at age 17; June I'll be 18. When I was 14 almost 15, I started thinking of thoughts that I never told anyone. I'm Catholic, but after I got confirmed last year around September, I starting to not believe. I used to be good in school, now just someone that doesn't seem to care about homework. If I want to hurt myself, I have ways. I have a car, but it's my first, and it's my life. I have never had a girlfriend. Have I asked people if they like me? Heck yes. All I get is " Sorry, I don't like you" and other no's. I have saved someone's life from committing suicide and he's my friend and he's a sophmore and I'm a Junior in high school. If you care, thanks.

When I was 14, I saw this movie for the first time. Later that year, after severe bullying at school, I had extremely suicidal thoughts. It was bad. My youth pastor liked this movie so much, that he decided to show it to our youth group. He told us to see which character we related to. When I realized what character I related to, I was terrified. It was the one who committed suicide. I talked to my youth pastor's wife a good, long while after the movie and told her everything. She prayed with me, and I am no longer suicidal. Praise the Lord! Thank God! He saved my life.<br /> He gave me Joy!<br /> Sometimes thoughts will come into my head, but then I remember how good God is and that He will help me and even when it is hard, He will be with me. God has good plans for me on this earth, and I want to see what they are. He has good plans for you, too. He is there for you, too.

Adriane - Posted on January 24, 2016

Hi, my name is Adriane, I'm Brazilian; I want to help, I will try ok? !<br /> Things are tough right?<br /> I believe in a God who loves you and knows what you are living! And because He has not done anything?<br /> Why, he will not invade your life to change it! God is kind, and hopes to be invited.<br /> Invite him! Ask to change your life!<br /> Just ask him, he says:<br /> "Matthew 21:22<br /> And whatever you ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. "<br /> He wants to come into your life. Look:<br /> "Revelation 3:20<br /> I stand at the door and knock; If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me. "<br /> He is calling now!<br /> God loves you very much! You are most precious to God! If there was only you in the world, Jesus would have died just for you! Because he loves you!<br /> <br /> If you want to talk to me, I'll be happy!<br /> <br />

Ashley - Posted on January 16, 2016

There has never been 1 person in my life I can trust, from parents to "friends", family, doctors, lawyers, police, boyfriends, teachers, my sisters boyfriends, no one. I have gone through every type of abuse possible. I've survived multiple car accidents; the last one should have been fatal. I am homeschooling my 2 children now because of it. It caused 4 herniated discs in my neck. I had 1 surgery and am going to need another which will make me disabled for the rest of my life. I am only 3o. I am a Highly Sensitive Person (an Empath), I suffer from PTSD, Anxiety, and Major Depression. I have been through more in 30 years than most even ever heard about, even my therapist asks how I keep my head held high and keep going. My answer is always my children. If I give up, they always will. That will be all they know.
