I can really relate to the person who wrote “Lying on My Bed.” I feel like life isn’t worth living because things are bad right now, but I do not feel I will try to take my life.
I want you to know you touched me deep down in my soul. Now that I have read your story I will never do anything to try to kill myself and if it weren’t for you, I might have. I think every teen in America should read this piece so they know that you can turn things around and feel better about yourself. Thanks for writing and printing this. It probably saved my life.
This piece has been published in Teen Ink’s monthly print magazine.
