I Will Stay Strong

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 131 People

    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...
