    I'm new....

    I've been dealing with lots of stuff for a long time and done nothing about it but just build up and kill me from Inside out. I can barley eat. Very deppressed. Lost my girlfriend and now just recently told me to leave her alone and we can't be friends cause her current bf. I have no friends. Only things I cherish but make me cry and upset is music(band and listening) and gaming.( YouTuber and streamer). I need help gaining happiness.. I been 3 times too close to killing myself and even cutting. But one friend stopped me and is trying to help me cope but it's not enough.

    Thanks for listening.

    Welcome to ReachOut Prudda! We're so glad that you've come to talk with us tonight!

    It sounds like you have been struggling lately, and been through some tough situations. I'm truly sorry for that, and I want you to know that you are not alone. I can see that you've got a friend you have been able to talk with and find some support through. I'm so glad that you have someone like that in your life. Do you feel that you can open up to a family member or other trusted adult as well?

    Another thing you can always do is give the helpline Your Life Your Voice a call at 1-800-448-3000. It's free to call, confidential, and has a 24/7 availability, so you can call them any time. Go ahead and save that number somewhere to keep it handy, but I hope you'll consider calling them tonight. It sounds like you could use someone to talk with. For more information on this and other ways to contact them, check out their page via THIS link.

    It may feel bleak right now, but there is always hope! When you're feeling low, how about writing in a journal? You may even want to start out by listing some things in your life that bring you happiness. Anything from the very grand to the very small. It all matters if it makes you feel joy in your heart. Other things that can help are taking walks, arts and crafting, music (which I see you have listed that already), meditation, and yoga. If you

    Journals don't help. Playing video games or playing music is what I love and makes me happy but instantly tears me apart and kills me.

    Hello Prudda,

    I'm so sorry that you're finding that the things you truly love and make you happy are tearing you apart. That must be so difficult. Finding that happiness through tough times can be a difficult task, and take some time. I truly believe that things will get better for you!

    Do you feel that this may be a good time to step back and focus on yourself and allowing your heart to heal? Sometimes changing that perspective or focus can be so helpful. Talk with people, be it a trusted friend, family member, us here at ReachOut or a helpline (YLYV is really great). You are not alone! We're all here for you, and we truly care!

    Hello Maky,

    I’m really sorry to hear that you’ve been going through a break up right now. You’re right, they really do hurt.

    Something that can really help is to talk with someone. You can always talk to us about it! Maybe there’s someone in your life that you can open up to as well, like a family member, trusted friend, or another trusted adult?

    Keeping yourself busy while processing the emotions, and allowing your heart to heal is helpful as well. Things like taking walks, taking bubble baths, and listening to calming music are so relaxing. Getting involved with volunteering opportunities, groups, and clubs within your community can also be helpful, and can even be a wonderful learning and growing experience. Do you journal? Writing is a great way to express your feelings, as is art, music, and dance.
