Sabrina - Posted on January 14, 2016

I am 16 years of age. My parents are separated since my first year of age, so I haven't had much contact with my father. I have an older brother. Always my mother went to work to support myself and my brother so she didn't give much attention to us. So at 14 years I cut myself for the first time. Many must be asking: "why? She's a normal teenager, without problems, with life just being fun. " I have no friends, I feel like I'm alone amid the crowd, have no conversation with my parents (now I have a stepfather); no one listens. I feel like I'm messing up people's lives. But I always try to seek help from God because I know that he is my only friend. But aside from all this, I want and I'm going to help people, because that's my goal for life; that's what keeps me standing today.

JESSICA - Posted on January 12, 2016

Hello. I read every message you put here. I get emotional. I see it's not just me that's been through something that hurt emotionally, physically and verbally. Human suffering. I've felt pain, cried, laughed, danced, celebrated and loved. Every day I learn to deal, but not resign myself to the situation I want to change, to be different. I met a person who changed my life, healed me, saved me from depression, loneliness, trauma, rejection, loneliness and abuse. It showed me that there is life, brought me hope, strengthened me when falling, hugged me when no one hugged me, and loved me. Jesus saved me, and set me free. You all who have gone through every kind of thing I went through, Jesus loves you. He wants to change your life writing it new. God wants to write a new story. Love casts out all fear.

As a teenager, I was verbally and physically abused almost daily. I also struggled with sinful addictions. I came to believe what I was told- that I was a worthless freak- and tried to commit suicide. God used the unconditional love of others in my life to remind me that despite my circumstances, he still loved me. "I will extol you O, LORD, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me... you restored my life from among those who go down to the pit" Psalm 30. 10 years later I am happily married and pursuing my passion of working with youth. Please message me here if you need someone to talk to.

You don't need to be afraid. God has protection around you. Look for the nearest Bible and read Psalms 91. God will protect you from the true enemy.

<br /> Hello. I'm from Honduras. I started having depression at age 18 and told God that I wanted to pass. One night at the age of 20 I wanted to take my life, but I couldn't. I am a psychology student and it is difficult to study and learn of your illness. I decided I wanted to move forward as a psychologist. I know there is a God that can help us and is honest. Thank you for letting me post my story.

Lisa - Posted on January 02, 2016

My story has many layers which have led me to where I am today. It begins with being emotionally, physically, and sexually abused as a child. It then weaves through my teen years, where I began experiencing periods of depression and hopelessness that I did not understand, because I wasn't allowed to talk about it. Adulthood brought about a stream of poor decisions with 2 failed marriages, the 2nd one ending with my spouse committing suicide in our backyard in May 2012. After my 3rd psychiatric hospitalization, where I received 6 ECT treatments and participated in an intensive outpatient program, I finally began to understand my illness. We now enter 2016, I have been involved in medication therapy and psychotherapy consistently, and I am here to say, I have started to give myself permission to live. All of you reading this, I know your pain, and it's very real, but so are you. Give yourself permission, to live each day for you. Thank you for listening.

When you feel alone, with nobody to hug, to vent, you have a person who went through the same situation as you,Jesus. He was despised, rejected, humiliated and abandoned. Only one that does not abandon is God. And it is the same thing with you. God never abandons you; He loves you. He gave His only Son for YOU. HE cares about YOU. GOD MADE YOU UNIQUE, EACH WITH Your own character! GOD CHOSE US BEFORE THE WOMB !

Hannah - Posted on December 15, 2015

Throughout my life, I've dealt with major depression and anxiety. It's been a constant struggle for me.<br /> I've always been a person to keep giving, helping people, full of grace.. which would make me run empty. <br /> I found Jesus at my darkest places in my life. His power works best in weakness. <br /> I've overcome my struggles with self-harm because I know I can lean on Jesus, and anything is possible! "Be strong and courageous!"-Joshua 1:9<br /> <br /> -Hannah <br /> Stay strong!<br />

Last time I was on this website I was 14 years old, battling through depression, school, friends, etc. Now I am 19 years old still battling those things, but I've gotten better each day. Every once in a while I come visit this site to see the stories of all you guys struggling. Just know that life does get better. You're going to have up and downs, as many would say. You're going to have good days and bad days, but if you keep striving for what you want and get help, you will make it through. I promise you, you will have a better life. This is the first time I have been back on here in years, and just to see that there are still stories being posted is inspiring. I am here if any of you ever need anything. You can write me here. Just believe that it gets better.
