The Loneliness Was Too Much
Everybody gets lonely from time to time...it's human nature. But my loneliness almost led me down a path of ending my life.
I was kicked out of my old high school for bad attendance. I felt like a failure when I was forced into an alternative school. (Which surprisingly turned out to be a better school than my old one!)
Thankfully, I was with a guy who was there for me. We were together for 8 months, he was my world, he was my life, and I gave him everything. We had a pregnancy scare and I told a few of my close friends, and by the time I knew it...they blocked me on everything! I was okay though; I still had my man.
A few weeks ago, my man admitted to me he didn't love me. He just saw me as a friend. This destroyed me. I was alone, and my mother was too far away to hug. I sat in bed crying and self-harming for two weeks.
Something Inside Me Snapped
Finally, something inside me snapped. I lost it, and I was ready to end it all.
I was too afraid to draw that blade across my wrist so in a final attempt I sought out help on the internet, and I came across this site, TheHopeLine.com.
My Hope Coach helped me get through it and has sparked my passion to travel again! After I graduate, I plan to travel the states on a journey to find myself and repair my soul! - Liberty
