RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

New suicide movement/community started by me.

http://www.facebook.com/Wildfirelove

Well guys. A girl from my school died this weekend in a car crash. I had heard from 1 of my friends who was one of her friends, that every1 was crying today, and the counselors do absolute shit for them. Last year i think we had a girl from another school in the local area kill herself. i knew that girl a little. the year before that, a girl with cancer died. A couple months ago, another girl from my school took her life. Around that time, a boy who was hiking in the woods, slipped and fell off a bridge thing or something. No doubt theres a huge cluster of energy around that makes school so miserable, i can feel it.

I do not think the schools or State is doing enough. Schools are worried about their rep, and getting the best kids in the best colleges to get their name up there. The state is SO worried about money and stupid shit, that not 1 kid it seems like, can turn to an adult from school, or even their own parents, and not only that, but it seems like this so called 'god and jesus' aint doin SHIT. Its about time someone here steps up, and i think that someone is me. I m going to play nice and ask the school if they can form an assembly by the end of the week, so I can speak about suicide and mending with death and other things.

I too went though suicide. Nearly did something stupid before my birthday. If it werent for my best friend who i now consider my brother, i would be dead i think. maybe. But the point is, everyone goes through it. and lets say 100 kids go through it, probably 30 or so will go through with suicide and end their life. i know those numbers arnt accurate, but you get the idea, this is becoming an epidemic. bullying, suicide, and everything in between. my goal here is to ask if you guys could spread this page like WILDFIRE and make a stand to share this, and in hopes, kids will use this page to vent and talk. Our youth shouldnt suffer, and i shouldnt be the one doing all the work, but some adults and shit are tooooo busy to help the future, so its my job now to do it. So lets change the future guys. For better or worse, we have to try something, so why not start here? <3

I'm not surprised about this and school probably is the culprit for this.

i blame the schools for not stopping bullying and helping kids. theyre too busy with their bullcrap college scores rather than helping kids..and instead of helping, the kids get sent to a psycho bin. its sad.

They try to stop it, but once again, go after the symptoms rather than the source: school!

No, this is Patrick.

Yeah. Still going through my own little suicide stage. The pills help though they make me sleepy and even more insane. Kudos to you for doing this. I salute you.

No it's not school, it's the symptoms!

Blow it out their ass.

My counselor tries to point my symptoms of depression to my parents being divorced rather than being shoved into a place I hate and resist with a burning passion. Every day I contemplate getting off the bus that drops me off at school and walking the fuck back home.

i have the same feeling dude. mom drives me to school. go to first period, walk back home. eat and do what i want in bed. live a good life :]. XD

thank you guys though for the support. As hitler had to play politics to get what he wanted, It seems as though as i may have too aswell, atleast for this assembly to happen.. I dont care what the fuck i gotta do- if it take ALL of you guys to call my school and tell them to let me speak, then my god so be it. we will do EVERYTHING it fucking takes for me to speak. oh yeah- ill have my friends record it for youtube aswell. let the shit go viral too. we have to win this battle and save lives. no more dead youth. im sick of seeing it.

RE: New suicide movement/community started by me.

well. my 1 counsilor told me to go to the principle and that "it just wouldnt happen" because of the "ACT" stuff going on this month. they care MORE about stupid meaningless numbers rather than kids that need help. this is nuts...
