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.
