Stories of Hope

  • Struggles With Self-Harm

    For the longest time I was so depressed. I coped with it by cutting and just hurting myself in any way. My depression overcame me and I honestly wasn't the same. I was never truly happy anymore. I never went out with friends and I never was okay again. The cutting would just get worse everyday. The urges to cut got stronger and stronger as each day went by. It was scary how depressed I was. But then I decided that I didn't want to feel like this anymore. I talked to people about it. I saw a therapist and I contacted TheHopeLine®. With having so much support, I felt like now I had hope in getting better and felt like I had a purpose. -Hannah

  • Suicidal Thoughts

    I felt very low and I felt like ending it.  I just wanted to say a big thank you to a HopeCoach on the telephone today as I am in a bad way and he understood.  He gave me some good resources and guidance that should hopefully help me in the future.  Bless TheHopeLine!  Hope is Here! -Gavin

  • I was Feeling Overwhelmed and Alone

    I was feeling completely overwhelmed. I had no one to talk to because not a lot of people knew what was going on in my life. I spoke about the issues I was having for the first time in four years. I had never been able to do that before. I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders and it gave me the boost I needed to feel hopeful again. -Jessica

  • I have slowly stopped cutting.

    One day I found this website and started talking to someone, a HopeCoach, and they told me I was worth it and needed help to get better.  Since then I have slowly stopped cutting. I am Whitney and that is my story.

  • Starting Over From Nothing

    After listening to the radio show a few Sunday nights prior to the fire and girl leaving, I decided this was a good place to start. I tried the online chat today and the coach was more help then any one before, and made me realize a lot about life and God and I could not be more thankful.
