I Lost MyselfFeelingsI Lost Myself<div class="ExternalClass36E29FF727884114A9CCC8B5FE984BEB"><p style="font-family:georgia;font-size:16px;">​<span>Ever since I lost my best friend I lost myself. This girl, my friend, helped me so much and I've tried over and over again to try and fix things with her. She just has given up on me like everyone else has. When she left I started hanging out with the bad kids, doing bad stuff, getting in trouble, coming home sitting in bed thinking about everything because I'd be in trouble/grounded. I had all day and night to think and sometimes I just wanna run, run away, leave everything behind. I've even thought of killing myself. I just don't know what to do. It all started by one thing and now I'm just nothing to anyone besides the kids I get in trouble with. I don't wanna be this kid but I'm just so hurt and doing the things that we do, make me happy in the moment.  </span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span></div><div class="ExternalClassD6E55C439A674DC19C208052F872517E"><div><div class="ExternalClass36E29FF727884114A9CCC8B5FE984BEB"><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>We are glad you are reaching out for support.
