I wish my parents knew

By | Your Stories | No Comments

I wish my parents knew that an eating disorder is not just a side issue that need to be dealt with but a way of life that needs to be faced and slowly transformed. There’s a point where it stops being a choice and turns into an addiction that can’t be calmed by simple conversations. I wish they knew how much my throat hurt after I made myself throw up time and time again and how I would cry lying on the bathroom door wishing that someone would counter my cycle of destruction with radical action. My free will was owned by the addiction, by the voices in my head that told me food was the only solution and also the one thing I couldn’t have. I wished there was less of me, a smaller sized me and I got it as I became less and less of myself. I wish my parents knew not to believe the lies I would tell them about being fine and that I was dealing with it. And I wish that they were the ones who finally saw through me and empowered me enough to fight my addiction.

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for coming to our school… for the second time. Although I already knew what we were gonna go through, I was still not prepared for the emotional roller coaster you were about to put us through. Your stories are so influential and it really helped me reflect on my own life and the difficult things I’ve been through. When I was young, I experienced many things, and they were not all that pleasant… friends in particular. My friend and I were very close and we stuck together through thick and thin. We were the best of friends, but there was this group of people who’d always make fun of us and bully us and turn against us everyday. It made us feel horrible. One day, my friend could not take it anymore, so they decided to leave me alone and joined that group instead because they were ashamed and embarrassed being the one getting teased with me. Then, my “friend” along with the group, started teasing me and I felt alone. I had no friends that would support me. I know how it feels like to be alone, and because of that, i’ll never forget that memory. I’ll always remember how it felt to be alone. I was scared to be alone, and to this day, I still am because of it. Its surprising how one person can shut a person’s world down just like that. I moved schools, I had to move on. I never saw them again after that. When you asked a couple of volunteers to come up to share their own story, I was bawling with tears. There were 2 specifically who I could relate to. The one I related to the most was when someone so important in their life has left them… and did not come back. I gave that person the warmest embrace ever, and I could not stop crying after that. My friends were consoling me, and now I am happy to have the best of the best friends ever. Michael, please don’t ever stop the incredible efforts you’ve made. You have been one of the BEST public speakers I’ve ever met, and everyone else agrees. I appreciated listening to your stories. Thank you, you changed my life for the better.

You came to my school

By | Your Stories | No Comments

You came to my school in Calgary and I really wanted to say your presentation was one of the best things I’ve ever seen. In the beginning i loved it all, it was like a comedy show for teens and it was a great way to start off. I loved how you got two of my male classmates to hug to show how men are different from girls. It made me and my friend really comfortable and more willing to listen to what you had to say. Even after all the laughing had stopped you still kept us interested. (Something that many other presenters at my school failed to do) The stories you shared we the most amazing stories I have ever heard in my life and they made me cry so much I had to hug my best friend the whole time. Even when I (and pretty much ever other girl) was crying it really made every moment enjoyable. When we all got to hug Sawyer in the middle and when we got to go around saying Thank you and I’m sorry to everyone. It was fantastic. Please never stop what your doing and I hope I can see one of your presentations again sometime. -Olivia

A thing I wish my kids knew

By | Your Stories | No Comments

A thing I wish my kids knew – I hope that they learn that this present life is all about forming a great relationship with God through Christ and that it is in our relationships with others that we can truly manifest this. Everything else is secondary to this.

Things I wish my parents knew…

By | Your Stories | No Comments

Growing up I wish my parents would have admitted they were wrong sometimes – it would have been nice to hear them say “sorry… and please forgive me.” Parents make mistakes just like kids do. I know that I learn by example so if I heard Mom and Dad apologize more often, it would have helped me admit my own mistakes through my growing years.

Thank you for coming to our school. The grad retreat really helped me. I was really scared to talk about something that had been bothering me for a while. It’s about my mom. You see I am moving to the states in a month and my mom and I are not even talking. I didn’t want to leave on bad terms. For some reason I had the courage to talk to you. You suggested that I write her a letter and tell her how much she means to me. Well I did write the letter. I never gave it to her though. I realized that writing it help me so much. BUT here’s the thing… a few days before I left to the states, my mom told me she was proud of me and super excited for me to go on this adventure. I am so happy and thankful! This what I needed to hear more than anything. Thank you for all you have done, and I believe it was no coincidence that you showed up to our school one day after the worse nights of my life. Thank you for inspiring us and taking the time to talk to me.

I'll never forget what you did us.

By | Your Stories | No Comments

You really motivated me before I lost hope. I could relate to so many things that happened to you and hearing these things brought me to tears. I’ll never forget the part when my friend hated me and you said if you have a friend who you may not like anymore stand up and go hug them and tell them how much they mean to you.  I stood up, hugged them told them how much they meant to me and I turned around to the sound of people calling my name and seeing her in tears.  I thought she hated me until  she broke down in tears and so did I. Just to see her like that and the next thing you know she’s in my arms and we look like we’re dancing both in tears. This proves that you’re a true reflection of God I’ll never forget what you did for me. You cared so much for me even though you never new me. Thank you so much I’ll never forget what you did us.

You preformed at St.Domonics Catholic high school today, I just wanted to say thank you. You have made my faith go up to a whole nother level. And have also made me realize many things. I have the same situation with one of my family members. And it is hard. Having a reminder that someone is going through the same thing and can be as happy as you are feels pretty great.

You helped me remember my story…

By | Your Stories | No Comments

I might not be the typical person that submits their story to you, but I figured that maybe it could help even one other person out there. You came to speak to our Grade 11 class today and I sat in the crowd with everyone else. I might have been hard to pick out at first, but after looking around a bit you could have seen that I didn’t quite fit in. Not because I was odd, or alternative or anything along those lines, but rather because I am a young, first year teacher and look quite a bit like the students that surround me, but am quite a few years older. I know your message wasn’t directed to me, but it hit home with me and my journey. So, lets start back when I was in grade 11. I was dating a boy at this time who had successfully convinced me that I was in love with him. Despite his physical, emotional, and sexual violence, he had convinced me that he was all I had in life. Through the struggle I dealt with, I had lost touch with my connection with God. Coming from a Catholic family, this was not an acceptable situation so I tried to hide it as best I could and continued to go to church every Sunday with my parents to keep them appeased. No one had any idea what I was going through. Since I had broken a promise I had made to myself and ended up having sex with this boy, I was complete convinced that I had to marry him, so I did everything in my power to show the people around me his positive attributes. Luckily, after a few months (9.5 to be exact) I came to the realization that he was not what I deserved. After all, everyone kept telling me how happy and pretty I was. Although I did not believe this or feel it. To deal with my pain and secrets I found myself drinking at a young age, thinking of suicide often, and escaping in the numbing pain of self harm. No one knew this. Not my best friends or my family. One day, I decided it was too much and I took as many pills as I could find in the house. I thought I was home alone and I had left a note on the last page of my diary saying goodbye to my family and expressing everything I was feeling and that I couldn’t deal with it any more. Thinking I was making the world a better place by blowing out my candle. Right at the moment I closed my eyes to fall into eternal sleep (hopefully in my mind), my little sister walked into my room. She NEVER did this. But today was different. She strutted right into my room like she owned the place and I was LIVID! But instead of saying anything I just rolled over, waiting for the unending sleep….

This is my Miracle story

By | Your Stories | No Comments

I Remember a few days ago you came to my school. My school. At first, you sounded funny, like a comedian. After hearing your stories, I decided that I spend too much time looking in the mirror. I should use that time for God, because no matter what anyone ever says, I know he is there. This is my Miracle story.   Thanks for telling me your story, and reminding me of mine.
