    • POEM: Blue Suicide by Tiara Neal (7/1/2007 11:33:00 PM)

      Being alone is like hell on earth, the therapists say we understand you and we want to help they only make everything worse. Everyone has a time when they feel like there is nothing left to live for, but if you think about how different the world would be if you werent born, you may realize how different it could be. You may say bullshit, but think of it this way, every person who has ever said hello to you talked to you or even your teachers, without certain people being there then everything would be different. At first the chain reaction would seem small but when you add the numbers up it would be very big. As for the cutting problem it may feel like your problems sink away when you first start, and you don't feel the pain, but the more you do it the more it huts. And mentally you keep saying it makes me feel better, you repeat these words and soon you believe them (this goes for no one would miss me when i'm dead, but when you look around you and at your friends you'll hopfully realise what you have however little it is) Mutilating your body will not help you it only makes the problems get bigger, and more complex, and face it they get harder and harder to hide. I'm not trying to make you feel bad or anything, i know what your going through, and its very hard. especially when you pretend to be happy just to keep your friends from worrying. When you first try to stop cutting it is difficult, because its like an addiction, But the longer you go without hurting yourself, the better you could feel. Your friends(very good friends) and Family(I know they sometimes make everything worse but there can be a SELECT few who will do what they can to help) will be there for you! Talk to someone who you could trust with your life (therapists are an option but they don’t really understand they just listen for money) And let some of these feelings out. I dont try to preach i only want to help.
      i wish you luck And i hope this will help you some.
      A wise person i knew once said you dont know what you have until its gone, and this is true for many things.
      (sorry for the length but i know what ur goin thru, dont let the feelings eat away at your life)
