- very good explanation).
Life can get so much better. You're only 17. You have tons of years ahead of you. Why put it to waste? You have nothing to lose staying alive, but killing yourself throws everything away.
Why do you want to kill yourself? Anything is fixable. Don't give up.
i dont know if you live in the usa, but (not tryin to be mean), but do you think Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold cared how their friends and family felt before they did what they did?

I can't generalize it because that would be too hard to do. I'm happy almost every minute of the day because I look at those little things. Those small things that make me happy and give me a boost. I look for those things...rarely do they come to me without me doing something and I need to accept them, not push them away! Go for it, go for life man!!
whatever i just underlined, is really true. i am scared of doing it. and yes i hope for a change in my life. and yes i love something/someone so much
