Why do people do the things they do? Is it all by rational decision-making or spontaneous actions? If you were given an option to end your life most people would say no, but that’s because the ones that say yes are not here right now.

The most constant question everyone asked me when I was going to the hospital was why did you do it? The same question everyone kept asking me was the same question I kept asking myself. There a lot of reasons for why I did what I did but I think the main reason was to stop the pain I was feeling day to day. As a kid you don’t really understand the things that go on around you and just do what you are told. I was very lonely ever since I was a kid I never had a friend and no real guidance in life. My dad work 24/7 to provide a good life but what’s the point having everything without anyone to share it with.

I got bullied all the way up till junior year to the point where I was beaten so bad I couldn’t barley breath and bruised till I was bleeding on my birthday.

When I went back to school most people didn’t notice I was gone but for a few and asked where I had gone. I actually fell off the face of the earth for a week with no connection most of my close friends thought I was dead. My teachers became nicer to me but I believe it was just out of pity from knowing where I just came from. Just like my teachers I believed everyone just felt bad for me because everyone didn’t look at me or treat me the same after. I felt even worse than I did before. The cut scares left behind didn’t help either when I wore short sleeves people could see them clearly and got scared. No one really understood they just stared in a scared glaze. Just like my teachers I believed everyone just felt bad for me because everyone didn’t look at me or treat me the same after. I felt even worse than I did
