Just read what I have to say. You don't want to kill yourself. You may think that right now, but what you're trying to avoid is the worst pain there is... emotional pain. It hurts soooo much. You just want it to stop. Killing yourself doesn't teach someone else a lesson or make them cry for you. You take the eternal dirt nap and that's it. The only people it could hurt are the people that do love and care about you.
But if you kill yourself how would you know? You'd be dead.
Obviously you are still very young. Sit back and pay attention because I am about to lay the real truth on you:
Boys & girls, men & women fall in love everyday. And everyday we get hurt or we do the hurting. Not every romantic encounter is meant to last forever. Sometimes it is just a little treat life gives us so we always know how sweet life really is. Almost as though life is saying "Hey, did you see that overthere?" You have had your first kiss. Congradulations!! That is fantastic. Good or bad that first kiss is something you will remember forever.
I always hated it when the "grown-ups" said: "You're just going thru a stage." That doesn't help. That just makes it worse because then you think no-one really wants to understand that you are hurting. That your pain is real.
The bad news is that this does not get any easier as you get older. But the good news is that this is only the tiniest part of the grand scheme. Your just cannot imagine all the beautiful things life is waiting to bring to you. And some of that includes having guys fall in love with you that you will not love. And you will have to send them on their way. They are going to be just as hurt as you are right now. Sucks, but it is the truth.
There is so much I could tell you, but it would take forever, and part of life is that you have to learn these things on your own. I'm sorry to say but a lot more pain is going to come your way. But there is going to be so much good coming your way including true love, that you have got to stick around and check it out. I PROMISE YOU THAT IT IS WORTH WAITING FOR !!
Just FYI, I'm 33 years old. I'm sitting home tonight feeling depressed over an ex-girlfriend that wallked out 6 months ago. How do you think I found this webpage? I was thinking the same things tonight. But things change. Besides, I would not give her the satisfaction of letting her know I am still hurting over her.
you are more than welcome to email me if you need someone to talk to.
