Hey there, Rhiannon!

I'm sorry to hear you're feeling like this on your birthday! This is your day; you shouldn't have to worry about promises you may have made to yourself, you should be enjoying yourself! I know it's difficult to break promises, but in this case, breaking that promise will save your life. You deserve to be alive, Rhiannon, whether you see that right now or not.

Don't let other people get you down today! Brothers will be brothers; they're just being typical guys and making you do all the work, try not to get upset over it, eh? You have so much to live for! If you need a reminder of just some of those things, take a look at our Reasons To Live thread.

I know you're finding it really hard right now, but just hang in there! Tomorrow morning, you'll wake up, your birthday will be over, and you can live another year. You just have to hold on today. It's not easy, I know that, but you can do this do, Rhiannon. You're an amazingly strong person.

We all care about you! You don't have to fight this alone; we're here to support you in any way at all. If you're feeling really suicidal, call a hotline. You can find the list here.

You're going to be okay, Rhiannon. Just stay strong. And Happy Birthday! I hope your day turns out for the best, and that you'll have many, many more birthdays to come.

Hey there Rhiannon, Happy Birthday.

I’m sorry that things aren’t going too well for you right now, but I’m sure that ending your life won’t make anything better for you. I have done the same thing, Rhiannon – I told myself that I wouldn’t reach my 17th Birthday, but I’m still here. I broke that promise to myself, you can break that promise to yourself, too. If promises are going to have negative outcomes then it’s okay to break them. You don’t have to hurt yourself today (or any other day).

I’m glad that you recognise that there are people who care about you, it’s great that your workers knew that it was your birthday. I’m sorry that your brothers made you ‘work’ for your birthday, that must be frustrating for you – have you told them that it upset you? Maybe you should – telling people how you feel can often help you feel like you’re listened to.

I think you should check out the link that Nicola has provided you – it’s got some pretty cool reasons to live. There are lots of reasons to live, Rhiannon – opportunities and happy moments. You may not be feeling your best right now, but you have access to help (the psych services) which is really promising and people who care about you, as you’ve said. Things can get better for you if you talk to someone, reach out for that help. I would recommend that you call the service you use again and tell them how you are feeling – it is their duty to help you when you’re feeling this way.

Take care.
