I RECEVIED PART OF THIS MESSAGE FROM SOMEONE. I CAN NOT REMEMBER. I HAVE ADDED TO IT & CHANGED IT. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE.

Don’t Stop Fighting 1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

I’m 11 & I don’t want to live anymore.

Hi. I am very young but I want to die already! I hate my life! I am 11 years old. I know I cannot live more! I just want to know what is the less painful & easiest way to die. I don’t want my life anymore! I have to die! I just can’t look into my future. I love my parents but, I can’t carry on with this life!! My life is pure s***!!!! I hate my life, all my cousins are Goths. Well I thought of kind of like joining in with them. I don’t know if I should believe in God or not. My life is a pure misunderstanding.

I’m 14, depressed & see no reason to live.

Hi. Look I am 14 almost 15 & well I am depressed. Marjory depressed. I have no life. I mean come on. I have no friends. I am picked because my appearance is different. Soccer practices are really crappy (I get made fun of, tripped, soccer balls are kicked at me, & the rest of it.). My parents are constantly yelling at me. I lock my self in my room & think of ways of suicide. I have tried suicide once but I couldn’t go through with it. Basically I tried cutting my throat. I am supposedly catholic. But I don’t understand anything. I have researched other religions and they seem "fake" too. There is like only one thing that I understand. It is more of a culture not a religion & it is Goth. I mean I love arts, music. I live my life in the dark, & so on. I don’t know what to do. I am lost in this world. And I know that I won’t understand it. All I think about now is suicide. My school grades are low. I don’t do any work, & all the teachers hate me. I know that a 14-year-old person should be having the time of their life & stuff But I’m not. I try to live my life as long as I can but my efforts will fall short soon. I know it.

1.Sometimes we may feel like our life isn’t worth fighting for.
