Hi, I am going to stay anonymous but I am a 16 year old female, and I have had a rough time in life. When I was 14 I told my mom I had a girlfriend, and to that she shouted at me and almost disowned me. Not only had I lost my relationship with my mother, but my girlfriend too because she didn’t like that I wouldn’t go all the way with her, so she made me. I won’t ever forget that night, it was horrible, and shortly after she kept on insisting I end my own life. I tried, multiple times, but for some reason, everytime I overdosed, I just ended up high. Then, a few months later I lost the most important person in the world to me, My Grandfather. Those were the worst few months of my life. Then I saw this tweet, this life changing tweet. It read: “I know it might be hard, but you can get through it. And I know it may seem like your life is at an all time low, or that it has no meaning, but it will get better, you just have to wait for the calm after the storm, you can get through this.” From that moment I pledged to myself to never take advantage of what I have because I know for some it gets much worse. You can get through this, I got through it, others have too… Just try your best to look forward to the good things in life rather than point out all the bad. I know you all can do it. Just try.
