Here i am, writing you this message, hoping that it can help you. (: – I’m gonna start by telling you a part of my story. I’ve been bullied at a really young age, when i was still a child. People were laughing at me (for something that i won’t mention cause i don’t like to talk about it). Some of them even got jealous cause i always had good marks in french class. It was more than just hard to handle all this.. hate at this age. I wasn’t strong at all. Nobody was there for me. I know there was nobody to save me. They couldn’t do anything. I was at a point that i didn’t wanna live anymore.

At the very last minute of my suicide attempt.. i heard this voice inside of me.. “What if it could be okay tomorrow? Or anytime really soon? You wanna miss that chance?” I stopped everything. I tried to survive for a bit more. Then came the day, i heard about Simple Plan.. They saved me.. especially David and Chuck.. I wouldn’t be here without them.. But i was still alone. I had no friends. Nobody close i could talk to. So again, i waited.. It was long.. I was still being bullied.. I still had those dark thoughts.. But i had faith to find the missing one i needed.. Finally, i did. In 2010, i met my amazing friend M. (@NoneButM). She saved me. She helped me go through so much. I love her for being the only one not giving up on me. She know how much i need her and she is being such a sweet friend. Since the beginning of 2012, i can officially say i recovered from my issues. Yes, i still have those dark thoughts, but i have the strenght to push them away. I can smile and be happy for real. – With this account, i hope that my friend and i can help you. We wanna give you hope, give you a reason to smile. Don’t be shy to write us, we are here for you. If we can help you get through your own issues, it would be amazing. Xx – This message was written by me. C.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.
