  • yeah it's true I'm honest ugly, stupid, untalented also too short. I'm not worthy of anyone . That is why everyone has to suffer for me all the time. I have tried to commit suicide 6 times but failed!! I know why God saved me, to hurt my parents and others!!. N the funny news is I'm 18 year old and I read in class eight , my friends all heat me because my fucker that's why! God took my older brother because of my sin. Who sinned and whom God put to death! 😞

  • For all y’all on here please hold on a lil while longer. God loves you and he can use you still. Trust God and k he can heal you from any and everything. Remember you are also not alone. Someone out there is went through somethin way worse than what you’re goin through and got through it. Please push through and remember that God is bigger than anything you go through and all you have to do is trust Him.
