    I was going to kill myself yesterday...no screw ups or anything...I would have been dead.

    I was just so tired of the hurt and the pain, and the feeling of being useless and weary every single minute, of every single day.

    I just wanted the pain to stop...for it all to just go away...forever...

    So I wrote up my goodbye message, and posted it to my Live Journal for my friends to read. I told them how much I loved them, and how wonderful it had been to have met them all...(many of them I had met online, and a number of them have become very good friends). And then I told them that they shouldn't worry or feel sad...because it was an end to the unending pain that had become my life, and I was finally about to find peace.

    And do you know what those friends of mine did...

    They loved me...

    They showered me with words and feelings of hope, love, comfort and the unbreakable knowledge that they would be always there for me, no matter what I was going through, and for no matter how long I needed them...they would always be there for me...

    And do you know what I did...

    I broke down...and finally allowed these people...these wonderful, beautiful people who I call my friends...to be there for me...

    And do you know what happened...

    It changed my life...

    And the selfless love and caring that they so willingly gave to me...which has helped to heal my poor, broken, and suffering heart...I now offer to you...to anyone who needs it...even if it's only in the form of a much-needed hug, or a friendly word or two of love and encouragement...I offer it to you all freely, with all the love and support that I can possibly give.

    Don't ever give up...fight! Fight for your right to live! Don't ever let anyone take away your right to live...not even yourself.

    And when you feel tired and weak, and the road ahead of you stretches out so far and lonely...just come here...to SF...we'll understand...we'll listen...we'll care.

    Everyone needs a friend...let us here at SF...be that friend for you :hug:

    Thanks everyone! :hug:

    Lol, now I'm going a little crazy around the site, trying to see if I can help out as many other people as I possibly can, and hopefully give them even just that small bit of hope that things can get better...that they can make it...and that they have many friends here who are all eager, and willing to help them make it through :hug:

    That's true. Considering that I don't find many of the things that have happened to me in my life, as amusing as a Disney cartoon, I must say that you've made a stunning observation. Good job :clap:

    *Is humbled that you've chosen to do so* Thanks :hug:

    I'm glad this was made a sticky...I find it inspirational.

    Erebos, why do you feel the need to crap all over something that could really help someone else? Does it make you feel better to have others suffer like you?
     
  12. Great, that makes me feel a lot better.

    I don't have friends, haha.

    Its wonderful that you had someone there to help you, and I glad you got through it.

    But although I have friends, I doubt any of them would notice or care if I where to just die.

    I don't have anymore friends to say such things. But I do have family that would say stuff like that, but in my opinion it would be out of obligation. Not only that, but I must be a horrible person because I wouldn't doubt that some of my family cares for me in some way and I can care less about my life anymore to cooperate with anything dealing with them tryin to help me if they chose to do so of course. All I do is I work, then come home and drink and pretend of being not me for the time being. And it gives me such momentum most of the time too. My mind is so messed up too. It's like everything is more of a picture rather then reality alot of times. I can't explain it. I feel like a zombie of some sort. But most of the time I rarely think of it and pretend my life away. And it works of course, for the meantime. I am so ashamed and embarassed of myself I don't want to be seen. The people at work look at me grotesquelly and I know they see me as something is wrong type of thing too. But most of the time I don't care. I just do my work and that's what they pay me to do. Sometimes I crank up the radio that;s at my area though. It makes me feel alright sometimes.
