I am suicidal, cut myself from 11 years old. (now I am 13 years old). My family and I have looked for help, nevertheless nothing serves. I have many hallucinations, from last year. People think that I have schizophrenia, others think that I am mad...I hate my family, because they are very religious, because they think that I am devilish hahaha. I hate my familia for many reasons really. Always I think of committing suicide. The voices force me to do it... make me think I should do this.

Hi. I'm writing this in hopes that someone in a similar situation will be comforted. Many things happened to me, but I have somehow managed to transcend. Now I am fighting PTSD and Major Depression and I hope to win. I've been in 5 car accidents, but I can still fully function. I am a person who has grown a strong personality after being bullied for my entire schooling life besides high school. I have succeeded in not only making friends but changing people's hearts with my story. I am a survivor of molestation at a young age, but I won't let that drag me down. That would only mean that all those people and things that put me down would win. I am a proud public speaker and I want to let my voice reach the broken hearts of other teens like myself.

I have often felt alone. It wasn't until last year around this time, I started having someone to go to. She and I are like sisters now. At times I still feel alone, but those times, I often ask God for advice, and he often answers them.<br />

Tyler - Posted on December 11, 2015

I'm 15 years old and I have lived a hard life. I've been beat up pushed around and sometimes I feel no reason to live. Life hurts and I don't know what to do. My dad got locked up in prison last year and won't be out for over 30 years. I cried for weeks and I still do all the time. I got so depressed that I overdosed trying to kill myself but it didn't work. I started going back to school with no problems just depression and I didn't have many friends. I sat alone all the time but it was normal so I didn't care. Just last month my step dad died from drinking. I cry every night and I feel so broken inside. I still get picked on and people don't care. I am depressed but I hide it so that I don't get bullied more. I feel so alone and I'm loosing my family. All I want is to be happy and for the bullies to stop.

Mel - Posted on December 08, 2015

In my 30's having 2 beautiful children. With all the struggles in my lifetime I came to a point where I totally broke down. I had the feeling of nothing in my life ever succeeding. I guess it's all about my childhood and how I grew up. I used to live with various blood families year in and out. And even today I don't have my own house nor do I have a job at the moment. And I think most of what I feel is part of moving around with my kids and not able to give them a stable life. As I watch them each day I block out the words "everything is going to be okay" to myself. My only wish is to overcome the feeling that makes me doubt that anything is possible and might come true one day, to live a normal and happy life with my little family.

Taylor - Posted on December 08, 2015

My life was falling apart when kids I knew kept dying in accidents, and my favorite coach. I was losing my faith. Then one night a person very close to me shot himself. But by some miracle he lived. He has a long road to recovery still, but I am thankful every day for God giving him a second chance. Suicide awareness and prevention is now a very important aspect in my life as well as God.

First, all of you are special in your own way. Please stay strong; it will get better, sooner or later. If anybody wants to talk about your feelings or just to have a conversation I'd be very pleased to be that one.

Gloria - Posted on November 28, 2015

I'm from Papua New Guinea and I'm 18. I just left school because I was depressed. To me life was useless, so was school. I've done somethings which my parents and siblings promised never to forgive me and I was cast out of the family. Well, I ran away from home once, because I felt suffocated with all my self-pity. I attempted suicide by drug overdosing while sleeping under my bed crying all day and my mom found me. After a couple of days, a friend lent me the film without knowing what I was going through. Actually, no one knew I spent a lot of my days crying myself to sleep. The film really did touch my life to face another day with hope that someone cares for me. But, they don't reach out to me yet. Maybe the right time will come later.

Nicole - Posted on November 23, 2015

I was depressed and became suicidal. I started out with cutting myself. I was extremely unhappy and lonely and I was hurting and no one noticed. I cried everyday and felt like no one loved me or would even care or notice if I was gone. I started thinking of ways to kill myself. I felt like Roger; I was crying out for help but no one could hear me. Then one day, I came into contact with God. I learned of all that He had done for me; that He gave up His life because He loves me and wants to have a relationship with me. I never thought someone would love me enough that they would give up their life for me. I was healed. Jesus is my reason to live. God loves us and He gave up everything just to know us. There is healing in Jesus. You are not alone. To whoever is reading this, I love you and God loves you.
