My name is Joslin and I'm 19 years old. Today I have 1 year without self harming and I thought it only fit to share some love and hope for everyone out there struggling with bullying. The first time I was bullied to my breaking point was December 27th, 2010. I was on my face book and this girl who was a very close friend started saying terrible things to me accusing me of something I didn't do. That night I took 2 weeks worth of meds and waited to die. My dad came down to say goodnight to me and noticed something was wrong. I spent 5 days in ICU. Everyday my nurse said I was a miracle. This was the worst of countless times before and after that event that led me to where I am today. I honestly didn't think it would ever get better. I wanted to die and I was so angry to be alive. I wanted to share with everyone that life no matter how dark it seems is worth your while. All the crap you get now will make you such a strong human being. I've dealt with so much pain in my life from murders, to bullies, to domestic violence, etc. and today I can say I'm a survivor. I know what you all are going through. I've felt the same pain. No matter how different the situation the pain is the same. It's a loneliness like never before. Please remember you are worth it. You are an incredible human being no matter what you or anyone else thinks because there are people out there that are good that are worth living for. It may take time to find them, but they're there. NEVER EVER GIVE UP HOPE... "When you feel like giving up remember why you held on so long in the first place"
