Overcoming

Our Stories are written by young people for young people. If you want to share your story, we encourage you to do so in the ReachOut Forums.

I know it can be hard out there for teenagers especially around my age but there is nothing too hard that we can’t help each other. My point is to help reach out to the ones that need reaching out to, young, old, blind, crippled.  Everybody needs a helping hand, and that’s what I am here for.

About me, I was a nice girl just trying to act hard on the outside because I wanted to fit in with others. Then, I started get meaner until I became one of them. But, one day I looked in the mirror and saw a girl crying for help in there.  I was looking for help; I didn’t even feel the same anymore. Then I saw this website, and it’s just amazing how someone else’s experiences can help you overcome your own. So, then I started coming on it daily, and I finally made up my mind that I wanted to be different than others. I started doing different things and changing my ways.  My point is that it’s a hard world out there, but with someone helping you reach out, you can overcome, just like me.

    This website is slowly helping me heal. This story has contributed to that.
