Exclamation Giving Up - November 2nd 2012, 06:20 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Life is hard, I know that, but sometimes, its like there playing a joke on me. No matter how hard I try to please my parents they always find my flaw and criticize me. I'm tired of having this constant pain of that I'm not good enough for them. I have thought of giving up for a while, (about 3 years) but every time I try and convince my self that it will get better. But now I'm thinking, will this hell hole ever end? I'm sorry, I just need to vent, I feel as if I'm the only one in the world.

You're not the only one in the world, trust me. Millions of kids go through exactly what you're going through right now. And it's okay to vent, as long as it helps then what the hell, right? I've thought about giving up for a long time, probably 5 years to be honest, so I know what that's like. Don't. Because in reality, it will get better. There will always be bad moments in life but you mostly have to focus on the good ones. Your parents are very controlling it seems and I've been through that.
My mom once married a man who not only beat me for stupid things, he'd criticize my every move. I was only 4. He would yell at me for coloring outside of the lines. Trust me, I can understand to an extent what you're going through. The difference between you and me is that he wasn't a father and I was out of that house in 6 months or less.
If you ever need to talk or vent to anyone, I'm here.

It sucks, doesn't it? I'm going through it too, you aren't alone. In fact, I tried to commit suicide last night. Do you have anyone you talk to about this? I have therapy sessions and oddly enough, they really help me. I mean, think about it. If you broke your leg, would you get help? It's the same thing here, except you're hurting in a different way. Anyway, you can talk to me whenever you need to.

Hey there, life is worth it and the worst thing you could do was attempt suicide. 17 days ago I attempted and I regret it. it does get better, there will be highs and there will be lows. It stupid, it really is, but no matter how hard it gets, know that you can email/PM/VM me and we can talk.

Stay strong,

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
