I don't really know where to put this, but I found it quite uplifting writing it, and it might be relevant to someone else :)

1. Itís not worth it, donít hurt yourself.

2. You donít deserve to die, nobody does.

3. Being a bitch to get in with the ďcool kidsĒ doesnít get you anywhere, or stop them picking on you.

4. Theyíll get bored eventually because theyíll grow up, and if they donít - the jokes on them.

5. Youíre always stronger than you think you are, even when you think youíre at rock bottom.

6. Therapy isnít going to bite your head off, itís not all that bad.

7. You should get help sooner.

8. Donít take people or situations at face value all the time - sometimes that shit bites back.

9. Youíre going to make mistakes, and thatís okay.

10. You are not your failures, mistakes, or bad decisions, you define yourself.

11. A blade, alcohol, or that cigarette are not going to make everything disappear.

12. Youíre young, and donít be afraid to act like it.

13. You donít have to justify every move you make.

14. Broken hearts can heal.

15. Youíre not fat.

16. Donít let anything knock your confidence.

17. People are always going to judge you, but thatís not your problem.

18. Be brave, and stand up for what you believe in.

19. Hold your head up, because you never know - today might be the best day yet.

20. Recovery is possible.
