On the Edge of Ending My Life

I was on the very edge of ending my life when I came across the HopeLine.

photo-1421986527537-888d998adb74The first person I spoke to was very friendly and was able to talk with me for as long as I needed, the second person I talked to was just as helpful, both experiences helped me get this heavy orb off of my chest. I thought that when I wasn’t speaking with my best friend about something like this that I would crash and end my life but I learned that as long as the HopeLine is here, I will continue to live with Hope!
