Ok, I want to write this story because I guarantee you that this is the worst thing anyone could get. I've been going through a lot lately just because of a seat belt that I wasn't wearing in a car wreck back in 2006. Yes, I said 2006 and I'm still dealing with it. When I'm done writing this story I'm going to self-publish it so that people could pass my book onto other people so they can also read my story and hopefully inspire them. If I get lucky enough I will publish it so that it can lay on bookshelf's in any library since most library's don't accept self-published books. Anyway, I'm going to write a chapter every week so you can come back every Wednesday night and read the new chapter Here is a GOOD summary of what you're going to read as I write the story on this thread and PLEASE spread the word! tell everyone about this thread I really don't want ANYONE to suffer what I'm suffering for 4 years+
I will post the first chapter in an hour or so, so come back to read it
This book is based on a true story about a boy who went through many rough moments during his childhood and early teenage years.
When he was about 6 years old he thought he was facing the worst things in life, but he didnt realize it was just the beginning. As he grew older things started to get so bad that he couldnt take it anymore and tried to end his life. Before ending his life, he met a few friends over the internet which he described as Angels. The reason he described them as angels was because he could tell anything to them, even his darkest secrets, and no matter what he told them they tried to help him instead of judging him like everyone else did. He started to gain faith again and tried his best to not end his life because of selfish things. Finally he was back to normal and started to enjoy life like he used to, but one unexpected thing happened.
In 2006, when he was 12 years old, he was in a really serious car wreck and ended up hospitalized for about a month. His life wasnt the same ever again, he went from a loud, crazy, mean, and aggressive kid to a quiet, scared, nice, and shy kid. It was actually a good thing until bad things started to happen unexpectedly to him and saddened his life. He started to hate his life once again, but this time it was worse.
All these things were happening to him just because he wasnt wearing his seat belt in the car wreck. His appearance lowered his self-esteem which later on it became depression. Depression then brought many things to his life like eating disorders, suicide thoughts, sleeping problems, and even the loss of friends. He is now 1- years old and is still fighting depression. He wanted to share his story to people so that they wouldnt make the same mistake as he did and live a depressing life.
I, Juan V-------, want everyone to know that a seat belt can change your life completely and whats even more hurtful is that youre the one who decides whether you wear a seat belt or not. In this case I didnt wear one and now Im facing the consequences. If a car wreck doesnt hurt you physically, it will hurt you emotionally.
