Your life is worth living! You are so important, please tell someone if you are feeling hopeless, worthless and/or suicidal, even if the thoughts come and go. If you are having these feelings, do not drink alcohol, and/or take drugs that have not been prescribed to you, as this can heighten these sad feelings and reduce your judgement and overall safety.
