I was actually very fortunate to help somebody. It takes a little explanation to show how i met him. I was looking up for a twitch "viewer interactive" game. I found one and followed the guy. I ended up going to his friend and eventually followed him as well. A month or so later i met a user, whos username i wont mention for the sake he may not want me to, in friend of the first guy's chat. He eventually mentioned that he and his girlfriend broke up and he was very depressed about it and was going on that he had no purpose or something of the sort. I spent the next 15-20 minutes talking to him in the chat trying to convince him that he could find someone else and that karma would strike his ex. He kept going on theres nobody else and only her for him. He ended up leaving the chat for a little bit and when he came back. He was ecstatic saying that his girlfriend and him were back together, along with thanking me for sticking with and convincing him. To this day i still feel overjoyed for helping someone. Even if it's only just a single person. Everyone of you should do your best to help anybody that might be having any sort of problems even if its just talking to them.

Confess to Jesus your troubles and He will never keep record of your mistakes He just wants you to acknowledge His everlasting love to you and that He's always there when you need Him through Christ we become children of God and I promise never again will you have to ask "where did I go wrong?"

11 years today my dad shot himself to death. It was a week and 2 days after my 2 bday the last words my momma said to him was her yelling about how he skipped my bday. Everyone dies at some point just remember u never know when so just know maybe the thing u just said to someone might be ur last words to them. Choose ur words carefully please

Author Tartsia ( ago)
I'm sorry if you think this comment is rude but I see comments like "Oh you have so much to live for!" and "It will get better". If anyone tries to kill themselves they're just plain stupid. You have one bad day or year or whatever but you seriously are going to kill yourself because of one problem? Lets say your boyfriend dumps you. You think "Woe is me I can't live without him!" Yeah that's BS. That was not the last time you will get dumped. Accept that he is an asshole and move on. Or say your parents divorce. Obviously they weren't meant for each other. Deal with it. Stop this Bullshit and move on. Stop throwing a pitty party and the " I'm going to kill my self!" NO! OK? NO! THERE WILL BE OTHER HEART BREAKS! Take a good cry and MOVE THE FUCK ON! Again, sorry if this offended anyone it's just my personal thoughts. People have emotions, and I think it's a bit over dramatic to threaten to kill yourself. It's a very selfish thing to do. And if anyone suicidal reads this, please tell yourself to move on. If your parents divorce think of your future when you have more members to the family. Just don't kill yourself! Please!

the purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. it is about being compassion and honorable. No one has ever become poor by giving

Ahh. the old days where songs had a good message to people who are listening to music.
Not like in these days where it's now all about ass, tits, drugs, money, sex, twerk, and dabbing.

cheesiest fucking song in the last 20 years

Author The Dragon Caster ( ago)
If you've lost someone or are feeling depressed, the Youtube comment section is not where you want to be. First of all, that just looks like attention-seeking even if you are "on the verge of suicide". Second of all, help can be found at . It's Tumblr but it's the best I could find without having to browse through different websites.

This song just hit me real hard. A guy i was friends with on facebook (who I didn't know very well) recently took his own life. On Christmas eve as well. Such an awful situation, that he felt no other way other way out,, but now his family are lost without him and don't know what to do. They think that maybe if they had given him more love, he would have chosen to stay. I'm crying writing this. I just wish there was some way someone, me, anyone could have talked him out of it that would have worked. Rest in peace Leon <3

this song just brought back a rush of emotions,I miss the care free times of being young I can tell you from experience you need to do whatever it takes to stay close with your really dear friends,do whatever you want in this life don't worry about consequences just live for your happiness. I have no regrets in this life,I have quit jobs just to go on road trips with my best friends,spent every dollar I ever made on just having good times and everyone always told me that I would regret my decisions later in life cuz I missed out on a lot of other opportunities but I remember my great grandpa whispering in my ear when he was 94 and just about to pass away,he said, "I have accomplished many things in my life but now that i'm dying I regret not doing the things that I wanted to do.I was too busy worried about pleasing others..He said I am really happy to see that you're living life the way you want and at times you may feel like you're doing the wrong thing but trust me you're not." Wow,I am tearing up just thinking about it.The one thing that stuck with me the most and I'll never forget it was when he said " don't worry about money,I saved a lot during my life and and now it cant go with me and more importantly 20 or 30 years from now it will be the memories you created that you will remember the most not how much you spent.“The most dangerous risk of all– the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” peace and love y'all Bird Plan

This reminds me of two people who I love so much, they both battle mental illness and drug addiction. It breaks my heart, I pray and pray and lend all the support I can. My heart is broken over and over again. I pray the Lord to take them home instead of both of them wanting to take their precious lives. :-( A place where there will never be a tear shed, no more sleepless nights, no more fear, depression, or heartaches.

I know there's different kinds of art or whatever, and "everybody is different," but am I the only one that's creeped out by this video. The music is fantastic, but looking at random close ups of people is making me cringe, and extremely uncomfortable... No, just me. Alright I'll just shut up then.
