It all just gets harder as you get older.

I'm struggling now. If it gets harder as you get older, then I'm just going to get worse.

Why not just end it now and save the trouble later?

The older you get, the harder it is. What's the point then?

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!

The point is we live and we learn and as long as you keep trying it does get better.

Hi there.

I don't know where you have got the idea that as we get older it gets harder? I wouldn't say that. I'd just say the problems when we're younger are not so desperate you know? The majority of us aren't suicidal at 8 but we lose our toys, fall over and graze our knee and so on and at the time, that's incredibly hard for us to cope with at that age.

You can end it now. I know you have been wanting to for sometime and I know it doesn't get easier as the times goes on, but you've felt this way for a while, yet, you're still here and you're still fighting and there has to be a reason for that.

So I don't believe your statement. Life is what you make it. If you want to get out of this and feel better, you can. Its up to you to be the change you want to see in the world. I'm not saying it's going to be easy and that right now you can decide to get better and suddenly be happy again, but if you get the support you need and want, work with people, work hard, stay motivated and determined and really work towards what you want in life, you'll get there.

If you want something in life and work hard, you'll get it. That's the point. You can do anything you want to do. The world is at your feet but its down to you to take control and take the opportunities presented to you. You'll learn so much from this. I know it's hard now but when you feel better, you'll see life in a whole different way and you'll understand you don't and never had a breaking point.

You can do this, don't be alone.
