“I didn’t have many friends in school. At home things were okay. My parents loved me and grew up in church so, I had every reason to be a happy girl. But in school, people would pick on me. I was always alone, no one came near me because they just did on me. I was always alone, no one came near me because they just did not like me. They didn’t know me but they did not like me. this confused,e and make me feel so depressed. I got bullied a lot and over time, thoughts started coming in my head- thoughts to kill myself and end my pain. I had aI Am Not Okay pretty good relationship with my mother, so I remember telling her about the bullying I faced in school, but I never told her about the suicidal thoughts that bombarded me every day. My absolute lowest point was when I felt like I had absolutely no reason to exist. I had me I was useless. I even started getting involved with people online who were no good for me because I carved that positive attention that I was not getting from people in school. One day, I locked myself in my room and decided that was the day I would hang myself. Right, when I was about to do it, someone walked into my room and I snapped out of it. This is when my brother invited me to the Universal Church. I did want to go, I went anyway. The pastor spoke about wanted a new life that day, and at that moment I knew it was what I needed. I needed a new life, but I needed to put my old life to rest. so I continued coming to church and got involved in youth groups. I enjoyed the meeting and that and is here I was set free from suicidal thoughts and depression. I started seeking the Holy Spirit, and when I received Hime, I was made whole. I no longer felt that emptiness in me, and I no longer crave attention from others to feel happy and loved.”


“All of the feelings of being rejected, all of that sadness I had inside because of the bullying I faced in school, all of those thoughts that told me I should hang myself – were all removed once I came to the Universal Church. I am at peace.” -Melanie Gaspar
