- Being publicly humiliated by teenagers
- My grandfather and pets dying
- My mother getting paralyzed and almost completely disabled
- My father slowly becoming senile
- My house slowly but steadily going through dilapidation, and practically falling apart at the seams
- My brother becoming more and more of an abusive, spoiled brat
- My family becoming dirt poor
- My mental health deteriorating at a steady pace

And for all these years, everyone fed me trite such as "It will get better", "You'll be OK", etc. It doesn't. It ******* doesn't. After Christmas and New Year's, I'll put myself out of my misery ASAP. **** anyone who spews generic, uplifting ********. They really don't know what you're going through, and frankly they couldn't care less.

Dear Anonymous,

If you die three years ago, the events you listed would most likely happen anyway. It could be even worse.

Instead, because you are living, you spent valuable time with your dying grandpa and pets; you helped your disabled mother and aging father ...

In short term, it might not get better, but if you keep a positive mind set, and make wise and right decisions, you could see the light and a beautiful future.

You are not alone! You need help and advice, so please ask for it!

You can call the helpline anytime:
The Lifeline (US) at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
The Hopeline (US) at 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433)

Hi,

I've struggled with hurts, hang-ups and habits, and there's been a lot of improvement for me. I've been taking anti-depressant medications. Also I've been working the 8 Principles of Celebrate Recovery. Part of my continued healing is that I share with others the solution. The 8 Principles of CR are:

1) Realize I’m not God. I admit that I’m powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing, and that my life has become unmanageable.
2) Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to him, and that he has the power to help me recover.
3) Consciously commit my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
4) Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself and to someone I trust.
5) Voluntarily submit to every change God wants to do in my life, and humbly ask him to remove my character defects.
6) Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.
7) Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading and prayer in order to know God and his will for my life and to gain the power to follow his will.
8) Yield myself to God to be used to bring this good news to others, both by my example and by my words.

Celebrate Recovery, a fellowship of people recovering from hurts, hang-ups and habits. To find a group:

May peace be with you,
