so sorry - September 17th 2012, 10:16 AM

I lied about my suicide attempt i never attempted i only did it cause i thought people did not care about me and wouldn't notice if I was dead. I also never had a sister named Chelsey. I am so so sorry for lying to everyone im sorry for worrying everyone to. It was a horrible thing to do. It will never happen again.
I totally understand if you guys wont trust me anymore or if you are mad at me.
Again i am so sorry

There is always someone who cares about you. It may not seem like it but there is. I can promise you that much.

Alright, sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo immediately, this should have a Trigger tag, and Chantelle, you have ABSOLUTELY nothing to apologise about and believe me, we are not mad at you.....

It's OK, you can rest assured we are not angry at all and let me just say now, I am here for you and I am not the only one. It's good that you have told the truth now and that takes A HELLUVA LOT of courage.

Soooooooooooooooooooooo proud of you <3.

Hey there,

I am very proud of you for getting the courage to make a post like this. I know that it is not easy to confess to something like this, but it is really good that you did.

Remember now that the people on this site and elsewhere do care about you. We would love to give you any support and advice needed, but it is important that you tell the truth. I know sometimes that it may be scary to do something like that but we will give you support and advice on whatever you need.

Again, I'm really glad you've told us and hope we can start again on a new foot.

It takes a lot of courage to stand up and apologise and I'm really proud of you for doing just that. I definitely do not hate you but I hope now you feel you can be honest with us so we can help you the best we can. Thank you for being honest with everyone! Remember, you're not on your own.

Chantelle, I am so very proud of you for posting this thread and telling the truth. I know you feel bad and realize that lying was wrong, and you are showing us that you are a stand up person by telling the truth and apologizing. I am so very proud of you, and I hope that now we can continue to help you with whatever problems you face.

Re: so sorry - September 17th 2012, 05:00 PM

Hello, Chantelle!

I want to emphasize how proud I am of you, and how courageous it is for you to tell everyone on TeenHelp what really happened (and why it happened). We all lie - sometimes it's about a bunch of small things, and sometimes it's about one or two big things. Either way, it's not easy to admit we've lied, and we may worry about the consequences.

Personally, I think it's a lot easier to talk to you now, since you've shared what's really going on in your life, and I'm sure many of TeenHelp's members will feel simiarly with time. If they aren't always worrying about whether or not you're alive, they can really take the time to get to know you better, and help you work through the real problems/issues you're facing.

Some people may be too hurt to continue talking to you, but by posting about what happened in the forums, you're allowing new people to reach out. You're still a member of this community, and now it's not founded on lies. That's a good thing! When in doubt, remember that even though creating this thread was difficult, in the long-term, it will be the best and right thing to do - for yourself, for everyone who has gotten to know you over the past several weeks, and for everyone who will get to know you in the weeks to come. =)

Tbh, I knew you faked it. I could tell. But I was still concerned in case it really was true.

So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."

What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?

Hey Chantelle.
I'm proud of you for telling us the truth. I'm not going to sit here and lie to you that I'm not hurt in the least bit. I felt really guilty for not helping you enough, for not being there, for some many things. I thought you were going to be gone from this world for forever, and I literally cried over you.
So, I will always be here for you, but I will probably be kind of weary of your words from now on, just because that's how I am.
I'm glad you posted this, so now you can get the help you really need.
Truth is, we all lie. Every single one of us. So no, I don't hate you, I'm just a bit hurt, but I'm still going to be here for you.

Its great that you haven't tried suicide and I am proud of you for being able to stand up and tell everyone you lied. Not everyone has courage like that. I want you to know that each and everyone of us on Teen Help are someone who is willing to help. We all love you and care about you. You must always know this no matter what happens.

Hello, Well done for being brave to post this and trying to not be frighted about telling nice people on TH how you feel. You was depressed and everyone who you have lied to will understand you. You wasn't in the right mind so that's why you made a mistake it happens. Your family loves you they will understand.

It's good to hear that you didn't actually attempt suicide. I know I don't need to tell you this, but there was a lot of grief caused by this, and I'm not in a position to scold you for it, but it was upsetting/triggering to many users, and I hope that it showed you that people do actually care. Some users might need a while to accept what's happened, but they have your back in the end.

Hi Chantelle,

I admire your courage, I know what it's like to lie to see if someone cares... It's okay, no need to apologize. It was a moment of weakness and we all have them. We all care about you, you don't have to question that again. We're all here for you if you need us. You can PM/VM me if you ever need any advice or someone that cares to talk to.

Even though it was wrong I hope you now realize how much of a close-knit community TeenHelp really is and how much we all care about each other. Everyone was really worrying and praying. We are our own family.

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Hi Chantelle.

It must have been really difficult to make a post like this so I commend you on that.

We've all made mistakes in our lives, no-one is perfect so I'm not going to criticise you, but I hope your experience/the posts in the thread in question has made you realise that we are all here for you on TeenHelp and we do care about you.

Just be yourself, it's the best way and that's how you will get the help you need.

Sending lots of support your way. I'm here if you ever want to chat

Hey Chantelle,

I just wanted to say that I'm really proud of you for finding the courage to create this thread. I know how hard it is to admit that you made a mistake and lied, but it's greatly appreciated. I really hope you understand that we are all going to continue to be here for you with the things that really are troubling you. You're such a valuable person and we're so happy to have you as a member of this community. I can't wait to get to know who you really are. <3
