    Suicide Is My Past

    I WILL NOT try to kill myself - EVER again, no way, not happening. No matter how hard things get I'm not going to do it! I'm worth more than that! I may have thoughts about it but I will not do it! When I feel like this again I will sleep until the thoughts and feelings have left...

    Staying Strong is not cutting yourself.

    It's not doing that one thing that is making you weak. It's loving yourself when it's hard. It's baring through pain that is almost unbearable. Stay strong. And live on

    It doesn't matter if you know how much you mean

    to me anymore, all that matters is you're happy. I will stay strong and move on, with the short-lived happy moments we once shared... in my heart.
