Life can be messy. Sometimes you need a little support to make your way through it. I love to help guide people through their challenges & to find the beauty in our messes.

Never give up, no matter what. You are alive for a reason, and you are here with a purpose. You are here today, and that takes so much strength. Keep going, keep pushing through each day. Take it day by day, one day at a time. And always have hope. "Where there's hope, there's life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again."
No; never. I cannot say that more kindly and firmly. Everyone is here for a purpose, including yourself. You may have done something that you think is unforgivable or horrible, but everyone makes mistakes. I am sure you are such a beautiful person. :)
Never, no matter the circumstances. You are valuable, and you deserve to live and be happy. You should never give up on yourself, even if it feels like things will never get better. Have hope, and try, try, try.
No. You can't do that. In the end all we have is ourselves, and all we can save or destroy is ourselves. You hold that power within you. Use it to save yourself, not self-destruct.
I don't think you should. Give yourself a chance and hang in there for a little while longer. There's weird ways in which things can get better, in which YOU can get better. There are perspectives you have yet to see through, and possibilities when things can change. So please don't give up on yourself. There's no saying what the future can bring for you. Take care. :)
No, you shouldn't. At the end of the day, you are always going to be by yourself. Even if you live with other people or sleep with someone - in your sleep, you are alone. You can only depend on yourself, and only yourself can fight for you.
i dont know your situation, but you should never give up on yourself. you are an amazing person and deserve to be happy just like anyone else. stay strong. i believe in you
No, mostly because everyone always has a chance. you just need to believe in it and try your best to be better
Never. You are worth more all the gold in this world. Remember that you have a purpose you just have to find it
No. The one person you can rely on is yourself and you deserve to be content with the person you are
of course not, you're the greatest thing you've ever been given. If you're giving up on yourself for others then it's wrong because others don't know you as much as you know yourself. You're the best writer of your own story. Write it the way you want and give it the "forever after happiness"
No! Life, school, illness, and family can be difficult, but you are a human being worthy of respect and love. You can always reach out to me or any other listener if you feel that way.
Never give up on yourself! You are an amazing and wonderful person, you just have to discover it for yourself.
No, you shouldn't! You are an amazing person full of potential and possibility. You could be the next great innovator, a few attempts away from becoming the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. You could be a genius like Einstein, or a brilliant composer like Beethoven or Mozart. Or, and this is the one I like the most, you could be the shining light that makes even just one person's life a bit better. And you know what? It's perfectly okay if that person is you. Please don't give up; I believe in you.
Never, ever, give up on yourself. You have only one life, one body and it's all you've got. You've got years ahead of you to fix yourself. You can talk to people and they will help you through. Support is a beautiful thing. Caring for yourself is the best thing you can do for yourself.
Absolutely not. I was first hospitalized at age 13 for my first suicide attempt. I am now 28. My last attempt was age 28 in a psychotic episode. I didn't even mean to attempt. Had I been stable, I never would have done that. I will NEVER give up on life, And I hope you NEVER do, either. There is always light, there is ALWAYS hope. You deserve a better life, and one day, you will get there. And I can promise you that. I don't make promises often. But this one I can make and keep.
Absolutely not. Your life is far too important; you are far too important. You can overcome anything - nothing is impossible. There is always hope, and you should never give up.
Never give up on yourself. You are stronger than you ever will be the day you get up from the ground. The only way is up and I believe in you.
No... Don't give up on yourself,because truthfully, what good will it do you? It'll just put you in a deeper and darker mindset than what you're possibly already in... Giving up on yourself will really not so anything to help you or those around you, It's not the best way to go at all...
NEVER! I know that seems like an easy solution but don't do it because no one else can take your place giving up on yourself is quitting and letting the bullies win and that's exactly what they want for you do give up and the second you give them the power they think they can do whatever they want don't let them win stand up
Never. Never. Never ever give up on yourself! Sure, you make mistakes, but that's what life is all about. We learn from all of our mistakes so we can live better lives and help those who have the same struggles as you have. Everything happens for a reason. YOU are here for a reason. You have a destiny. Go get it!
No. Never. When we give up on ourselves, we give up on the chance to see all we can be. As long as you are still here, you still have the potential to be great. You still have the opportunity to move forward. If you walk out before the end of the movie, you miss the best part.
Not ever! No! Why give others the satisfaction of you giving up on yourself?!?!? KEEP YOUR HEAD HIGH!!
The only person you have a real influence is you, just you. You can try to change the environment, people around you, different situations you're in, but it's never as much as you can change yourself. Think about this. Do you really want to resign from the only thing you can control to a such high extent?
No. Never ever, give up on yourself. You are worth everything, your such an amazing person and you are too precious to give up on yourself.
Never. There's so much out there that it's worth fighting for. Even fighting itself can become worth fighting for if you learn to love the struggle. You might not see the end of it now because of the darkness around you but chances are that if you don't give up and you keep moving forward, this dark tunnel you're in will soon lay behind you and you'll be out in the light receiving the reward for all your past efforts. You've already experienced pain. Don't you ever give up before you collect your reward for it!
Nope, you shouldn't. All of us have our own flaws but that does not mean that you can do nothing about it. You can always strive to be a better person, nurture that beautiful heart that you innately have.
No! Definitely not. Also keep going, things will get better, they always do,
Never, you're probably going threw a very hard time, but you have so much to do with your life, because you're worth it
No. You should never, ever give up on yourself. Despite struggles you may face, whether that be illness, stress, school, or anything else that is challenging to /you/, always keep trying. There will always be someone that cares about you, and that wants to support you, and who wants to see you flourish into the beautiful human that you are and will become.
