At some point in time, many people have thought about ending their life. If you too have had these thoughts, you are not alone. There is hope for those that are having suicidal thoughts. Just like there was for Sarah, Gavin and Sara who share their stories below.
It was All Too Much
I have been dealing with depression for eleven years, my sister had passed away and after that my life changed completely. I was abused by my father, then my parents were divorced, afterwards my mom found a really cool guy and he became my step-dad. I loved him, until he started putting me down, shoving me out of the house, getting so close to me when he yelled he would spit on me. Then my Aunt passed away and I found out the day my sister passed away. She committed suicide. Then on my Aunt's birthday my grandmother died, of old age. I have been bullied at school to the point where I'm afraid to be myself and talk to anyone because of fear of being laughed at. I've had several classroom incidents, and I was rendered helpless, the teacher was mad. I have a really bad life here. And I have attempted suicide three times already. My HopeCoach talked to me and listened to me, after I had been so scared to talk. I am so glad because I had my pistol ready, thank you so much!
My HopeCoach Understood
I felt very low and I felt like ending it. I just wanted to say a big thank you to a HopeCoach today because I was in a bad way and he understood. He gave me some good resources and guidance that should hopefully help me in the future. Bless TheHopeLine! Hope is Here!
I'm Worth a Shot
I had been looking for something that would help me change my mind. I tried other sites, apps....you name it! I stumbled onto TheHopeLine.com in my search and gave them a shot. I'm extremely glad I did. I spoke with a HopeCoach who not only talked me down, but actually understood and had personal experiences feeling the way I've been feeling. They talked with me and helped me to see I'm worth a shot too!
