I don't feel comfortable talking to my parents about this stuff bc I don't want to hurt them...i promised someone I would never try to kill myself again and I no longer have that person.... but my urges are back and I need to figure out how to control them.... I just need a friend please

Hi Cortney,

I'm sorry that you're feeling this way, it must be really hard. I remember when I felt absolutely alone and felt like I didn't have any friends. However, I started looking at the pluses in my life. I highly recommend this, and I know it's a lot easier said then done.

I know you're scared to talk to your parents about how your feeling, and it's definitely something hard to bring up since you don't want to hurt your parents. Are you able to contact a help line, or a counsellor at your school?

Don't forget, we are always here for you as well.

Stay Strong,

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”

I know exactly what it's like to make a promise like that to someone important, and then lose them. it's like a double blow, because you lose someone who meant a lot to you and that makes you want to participate in unhealthy behavior even more.
but you don't ever have to feel alone. think of this site as a giant support system. I don't know anyone on here who would complain or feel weird if you just randomly PMed them to talk. I've had people randomly PM me for advice and help and I was more than happy that they chose to reach out to me. we're all struggling and I think that helps us connect and understand each other in a way.

what I'm saying is, you have a friend here whenever you need one. feel free to PM me to talk this out. the chat room can be nice to have a fun conversation with others. and trust that you will get through this someday very soon.
my little mantra I've told myself for quite a few years is "it'll be okay one day." it's so simple but true. life moves on, so do our problems. just cling on to the knowledge that one day this will pass.

i don't know what i'm supposed to do
haunted by the ghost of you
