• What’s yours compared to mine?

    You say your life sucks. You hate your life and just want it to end, but think about it; What is so bad compared to what I’ve been through?
    One of my very first relationships I was verbally and physically abused. I was left with my first baby to get rid of on my own! Whats that compared to one or two bad relationships?
    You have two parents that love you while my mother shot her self a few months ago. Not only that, but now I have to leave my home, my friends, my life, to move with family that isn’t even biologically mine only because my true biological family has brushed me off to the side; won’t even acknowledge me anymore. You don’t think that those things don’t mess with my head?
    You want to die? Try being in my shoes, only staying alive because of two younger siblings that look up to you, and the one love that you hope will last forever, but more than likely won’t.
    I’ve experienced true heartbreak, hurt, pain, loss, and terror, only to continue on to the next knife that stabs me in the chest. I have scars with stories you could never relate to. I’ve been used, ignored, shot down, and left broken, yet here I am.
    Before you even think about finishing a life that was meant to be carried on, go talk to a stranger. You’d be surprised at how fucking close to perfect your life is.

      Pain is pain, trivializing someone else’s pain is in no way beneficial to anyone, it doesn’t help. It certainly doesn’t help the other person and how does it really make YOU feel?

      I knew a girl, many years ago in high school, who had to be hospitalized for an overdose. Her father found her in her bed covered in her own vomit, she nearly died. Her reasoning for this? She failed a final exam and couldn’t take the pressure.

      Does it matter if someone else had it worse? She couldn’t take it. I’m sorry for what you’ve been through. Pain is pain though and everyone is entitled to feel it. There are people who have had it worse than you too, but I still say you’re welcome to share your trials and tribulations. Venting helps, and everyone deserves that.

      Hearing worse things doesn’t make someone not want to end their own misery, having someone hold their hand, helping them to see WHY their life is meaningful does.

      I’m sorry for your pain / experiences BUT “yikes ”
      Is right on the money !!!! Every ones pain is legit and relative . Only way is having someone to hold your hand after all strength is built and nearly impossible on ones own . Although it is possible
