Wow Aaron. I'm not quite sure what to say. It almost made me cry, and I probably only didn't cause I have a friend over. It was amazing though. I'm so proud of you Aaron. You are doing great. I know you can beat this. You are a great guy and don't deserve the pain.

Tbh the shortness of the sentences annoyed me and a bit of the grammar, other than that it's a perfect diagram of how you feel/felt. Well done.

If you think I can help you please PM me.

That was amazing! The only thing was the grammar was a little sketchy. However, other than that it was phenomenal.

I think making thats a really selfish thing to do. Its basicly attention whoring in my opinion. yes you self harm yes your life might suck but we dont want to know about it every 5 minutes. there some people on here who have it alot worse than you and we hear nothing from them, take marcie for example shes got so mcuh more stuff than you have and shes took it into her own hands and dealt with it instead of bitching about it. Yes she may make threads in the forum but she only does them occasionally.
and i think by making this video youve just completely showed yourself up as a selfish attention whore.people get bullied alot yes its a big problem we hear it all the time in the news with statistics and shit, we know it fucks up lives and we dont need a video to tell us that. You can tell im pissed off by this video but its my opinion and if you dont like it then thats fine i jsut felt this needed to be said. So stop whining about it, take the example and sort it out. and i know for a fact that people are going to agree with me.

Firstly, it is a VERY well made video, good musical timing, good graphics etc. BUT. and feel free to correct me on this, if someone is REALLY feeling as crappy as that video describes. then , at least in my own experience, i wouldn't have had the heart or soul to make it in the first place, in that respect i agree with calum, i think there is a little bit of showboating going on. Secondly, how do these help people? videos that have to have a warning "may trigger" well.... sorry mate but that's not helpful really is it?
(has heard quite a bit about you, so i think i now stand by this post)

I watched up until 1:39 and started to foam at the mouth.

You started to cut yourself because people weren't nice to you? Really? I have Clinical Depression, ADD and ADHD and I've been on meds for all of them. In my youth, I was subjected to bullying on a level of absolute insanity.

Know what I did? I gritted my teeth, raised my fists and fought back. Every. Single. Week. At least one fight every single week. Usually, more.

Then I'd get grounded for it, never got to go on any school trips/plays/parties/whatever, until my mom realized what was going on. One time, I got accused of starting a food fight when I wasn't even in school that day.

No, it's not an easy road, but it's not something to whine about. It's something you fight through and persevere. I was in your shoes and I never resorted to mangling myself because of it.



See this kid? He's starving, dehydrated, ill clothed and probably diseased too. Not to mention the fact that he likely has very little to live for. Do you think he cuts himself?

No. Because his body can't even regulate blood flow properly. This kid will live a more agonizing life than any one of you on a daily basis and I'm almost certain that you complain more than he would.

So, take off that little plaid skirt you're wearing and grab life by the horns, so you can see that the power you gain from it is enough to thwart any adversary that comes your way.

In this case, I mostly agree with Calum. And I definitely agree with Ripplemagne. Everybody thinks they have it worse than everybody else, and that they have to tell everyone. There are people with real problems, that just deal with it. Attention whoring is much more addictive than cutting is.

Cutting can lead to psychological addiction, if you let it, but it isn't Heroin.

There is a picture here. You just can't see it because it doesn't like you. Run along now.
