Lexie’s life consisted of bouncing from family to family, bullied at school for being different, and sometimes even being beat by her foster parents. Frequently, she would cut herself because every day she felt like she was invisible, and the pain was something that reminded her that she was real.
But one day she went to Vans Warped Tour and discovered HeartSupport.
A couple of weeks later, she ended up on the site needing support because she was ready to end it all. This is what she wrote:
With time, support, and friendship from our community and staff members she began to realize she wasn’t invisible. She found faith, hope, joy, and was even eventually adopted by a loving family.
When asked at Warped Tour the next year “Did you ever expect you’d make it here again?” She looked back through tears and said, “Honestly, no I didn’t.”
We know one person’s success can be inspiration and proof that others can overcome too.
So our users prove the power of this community by writing out how their lives have been forever changed through the love and support they’ve experienced here at HeartSupport.
