  • Anyone: “I want to die.”
    Annoying ass religious person: gOd wOuLdn’T wAnT yOu tO dO tHat!

    But seriously if that’s your answer to a suicidal person, what the hell is wrong with you.

  • Suicide and bullying are the highest ranking problems we all have to face unbearably as humans.

    See? This is what happens when people decide to advocate for freedom of speech unlawfully, because it can open a floodgate of abuse and other extremely heavy unbearable consequences.

    Yes now of course free speech is an extremely important human right and rights are an important part of people’s lives we should fight for, but at the end of the day, you know no one else is responsible for the choices you make, whether your actions could result in tragedy!

    For all you evil minded free speech advocates out there, we shouldn’t need to be telling you people as if you are dumb, when you clearly know fine well of what your words and actions can do to someone, and you also don’t have any idea of what kind of person’s rights you are defending for!

    This honestly has truly made me think about how careful i should be when talking to someone.

    At the end of the day, we can’t always hold back important views of expression, but we can (as people), do our best to make a difference with things such as tolerance and such!:)

    Much love and peace to all!

  • my sister is 15 she’s is almost a freshmen she does what teenagers do when they are sad I feel bad and try to make her feel better Jesus is with us I say she say’s “Natalie you are the best sister I had I love you.” so make sure if you have a sister that is depressed take my advice. 1:let them calm down to give them water and get a weighted blanket if you don’t have one search one up on goggle. 2:cuddle with them and watch something funny:) 3: let them take a nap. and last but not least 4:let them talk to a friend. bye and thank you

  • JaQuavious seeing this after going to school with you. I never thought bad of you and you were always happy and tried to make others happy! and you have become so much more now through God! ❤ hopefully you will see this one day! Keep doing you!

  • I love the videos by The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints but I’m Muslim. This video was so inspirational when the boy said he will not live in the place where he at

  • I was in this situation from pre-k through 8th grade my entire life kids usually bullied me a lot name calling me and stalking me then I was depressed

  • Whoever sees this, I love you and have a great day. I once saw a billboard that said “I will always love you” -God. It inspired me.

  • a 15 year old girl in my school committed suicide
    Me and my friends were talking about it
    We were all shocked and felt bad for the girl
    At that time I was struggling if self-harm
    I was 13 and never told anyone

  • The Book of Revelation 20:11-14
    This truly explains the event before we whom are called will be able to enter into the kingdom everlasting. There truly is a degree of understanding.

  • Yes there are lots of reasons why people kill themselves or have thoughts adverse childhood experiences are a huge cause of suicidal thoughts probably the biggest cause people with an ace score of 6 or higher are like 12 times more likely to have had suicidal thoughts than people who scored a 0 so it’s a huge cause also aces are risk factors for there thought and attempts being more frequent and worse and also risks for those causes you mentioned like medical problems mental health problems drugs and alcohol alot of those things aces are risk factors for a ton of things people are at big risk of suicide if they had alot of aces i had alot of suicide thoughts and attempts in my life aces has definitely played a role in all of it I scored a solid 8 on it aces is definitely a risk factor

  • R I P Danny Love u Man someday when i got money big money Im going to Make a foundation in your name and Help People who get bullied / I gott bullied so im gonna do this for me and for u Danny Love u.

  • Even if I say that I feel depressed nobody would care, so I like to keep it in my heart only:((
    Do this, cuz sometimes it’s important to learn it!!!:(

  • I’m not joking you just prevented a suicide the hotline didnt help and looking on youtube was my last resort and it helped enough for me to work through it bless you and your family have a great life

  • Wasn’t it great to see the warrior of this soul of God. When struggling he turned to the God who gave him life. I love this scripture Moses 6: 60 For by the water ye keep the commandment; by the Spirit ye are justified, and by the blood ye are sanctified; (It is simple but so powerful, God will be your judge, never underestimate the Witness of the Spirit, it’s Godly power is a message of HOPE)

  • JaQuavious is awesome. This past year I’ve lived in the same apart building as him and gone to college with him. Such a great man.

  • i lived that in my own flesh, and i do testify that the faith in my eternal father and the obedience to his covenants give us the strength to become more than we ever though we were able to achieve. I though of my self i was worthless but now people tell me everytime “i love the way you are so confident of yourself and always defend what it ‘s right” in the past i didn’t was that kind of person, i lived with fear, but now i do testify that the gospel of the savior give us the power to change us into better beings, in something wonderful.

  • Thank you for sharing your experience. I’m sorry you have had a rough time, but I’m glad you’re getting help from our Savior, Jesus Christ. ��

  • The lord has helped me through the darkness and he will help you through the darkness, JaQuavious. Just hold onto him and it’ll be alright.

  • this may only be me, but i think that atleast 10% or more in this comments are either ”drama queens” or just here for support, because for some odd reason they think they can change anything just by one god damn awful comment like ”hope you doing fine❤️” like jesus christ like that would do anything, and yes, yes i may be a dramma queen right now, as i said, 10% or more

  • Bro this is true bcz my life also same so many troubles,impossible situations and many failures. Know I’m waiting for God blessings if any situation love you God ��������

  • I got bullied a lot when I was in school I just got out of it I just can’t take it anymore frustrated and irritated to the point that made up my mind if anyone else ever tried to bully me I was going to make an example out of them to let everyone else know I was the wrong one to mess with a whole no regrets because the stitches they had to take because of me equaled up all the pain they gave me

  • I have so much empathy for you and I know we dont know each other, and you most likely wont see this but I love you, and you are so important and and valuable, remember we are the point for the entire universe the Lord created all the stars the planets everything you see for us, how then can we not be infinitely valuable we are the point to all things.

  • This video and message fills what seems to be a huge gap in most discussions about bullying and suicide. In my youth I was short, had braces, glasses, and a cleft lip. I was bullied and struggled a lot…feeling as though I didn’t have a single friend in the world. What saved my life wasn’t focusing on fixing the bullies, but on my testimony that I was a child of God and that regardless of what anyone else thought or said of me, I knew He loved me. He knows you on a level your bullies could never know. Understanding your divine heritage and having a relationship with your Heavenly Father (through prayer) helps you realize your innate worth….even when you feel know one else does. The gospel, with the help of my parents, empowered me to see my worth and come out stronger more than mere platitudes or trying to control the words of others ever could.

  • I don’t know what’s happening in my life…. I want to die.. But afraid of having pain….Every night… When I go to sleep… I always pray that I never wake up ����

  • This message is so timely. If you know someone is struggling, just be there for them. Invite them to dinner, an outing, watch a movie. Just knowing that someone cares makes a difference. It did for me.

  • oh really Youtube?
    i tried to strangle myself only 3 times yesterday night and had sum crises
    annd u r giving me this?
    not cool dude
    not cool
    im totally fine


  • I have been getting bullied for the past 2 years it’s boutta be 3. And I kept reporting the Incidents and things they do to me and my principle said “you have to have proof” but how am I supposed to get proof when I’m not allowed to have my phone out….and they bully me when people aren’t around so they won’t get caught. All my teachers knows and they tired helping and my math teacher was pissed because they won’t do anything about it only if I have proof. And now i have to take depressions pills. And like 5 or 3 days ago u had a brake down and I just wanted to give up but I knew I couldn’t and I have to just keeping living with this pain but one day it will stop and when that day comes I hope they regret it…bc it hurts so much I cry myself to sleep everyday and it’s hard on my family. My mom calls and complains to the school that they need to take care of it or she’s gonna do it herslef. Bc she doesn’t want to wake up and not have me be here bc of my bullies..

  • Martial Arts is the sure way to bullyproof your kids. I will always encourage my kids to show respect to others, and never look for trouble. But once anyone shows disrespect or starts trouble(verbal or physical) towards them, they need to stand up for themselves and fight back.

  • Nice video, however there is something important to mention. Important fact most people don’t realize is that bullying does not actually increase rates of suicide among people who are not suffering from chronic depression. People who are already suffering chronic depression are already at higher likelihood of suicide. It’s them who then suffer a higher rate of suicide from bullying.

  • This is real life and I felt his story!

    I have felt that same safety when I was alone and needed someone by my side.

    The way to healing was made clear and the support network I would need to pull me through was amazing.

  • Sometimes I’m so tired of all of those mindset when I think I should think “positive” and I just want to show someone that I’m not feeling ok inside… you feel numb

  • In situations like this, parents must; 1) enroll the child or young person in a good martial arts/self-defence program; 2) seek legal counsel. This is especially the case in those situations where school authorities not only refuse to admit that there is a problem, but also blame the victim for fighting back.

    As for the bullies, each one should be caned Singapore style!

  • I can relate to a lot of these things, most of which because of what my ex-fiancé did to me. I will never forget the pain she caused me and how she destroyed my life.
