Giving Up The Battle. - August 12th 2012, 10:34 PM

I donít know why I am even writing this.

Iím not happy I havenít been for a while, this year has been awful. I hate it so much and I donít want to deal with it anymore I have had enough.
Yesterday I thought wow Iím doing so well not Self harming.

I haven cut in 8 monthís though I have slipped up 3 times. I cut today, it didnít help I feel just as bad as I have. My mum practically ignores me when I am at here and when I am at my dad heís busy at work and then is tired and annoyed when he gets home and my sister just uses me when she wants.

I am just so fed up Iím angry all the time I was happy yesterday nothing like this bothered me at all and now I cant be bothered. Whatís the point in fighting a pointless battle. Its not like my friends will really miss me they will move on. I know they will, its human nature to carry on.

Iím just tired of it allÖ When I try to talk it get brushed off because I get told Iím being silly and that I should act my age.

I just donít want to do it anymore.

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.

You haven't given up the battle. The fact that you posted proves that you're still fighting.
Please don't ever give up. Don't quit. It's like this question I heard from somewhere, but I can't recall where:
Did you hear of that guy that gave up?

Do you see? It's not the people that give up that are remembered. Maybe you think you won't be remembered and that everyone will move on. But if you kill yourself, you are giving up.

But that's BAD. What about the rest of your life? The people that will never get to meet you? The boy that will never fall in love with you? The people that will never be changed by you? The world that will have to manage without you?

Why don't you try and be happy and be successful? That way when you're being interviewed you can tell your story and give hope to others who are despairing like you were.
You are here for a reason. And just because your family pushes you around and makes you feel like crap, does not mean you are worthless. Prove them and all those self-degrading feelings wrong!
Show them that the person they just called childish became a movie star, or an Olympic athlete, or a musician, or a writer, or a counselor, or an artist, or an engineer, or a brain surgeon, or the owner of a restaurant, or anything you want to be!

I know you feel like killing yourself would be revenge against them, but don't do it. Prove them wrong and that will be your revenge in a way. Live a long happy life!

Don't flush your dreams down the drain because you family treats you badly!
And tell them. Make them understand how seriously you are about these feelings. If you get through to them, they'll listen.

God bless.
