Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Tough Stuff: Stories of Tough Times and Lessons Learned is a book written by teenagers and some people in their early 20's, and this whole book is compiled by Kimberly Kirgerger, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen. I wanted to read this book, because I was going through some tough times, and thought that maybe this book could help me get through them. I was depressed, and sometimes had thoughts of how and what it would be like if I killed myself, I hate to admit it but sometimes I see what it's like to try to kill myself. From this book I learned how to deal with my depression and how to deal with my fighting with my parents and how to deal with my thoughts of suicide. I learned how people got help, and learned how to become more sociable and more understanding of life. Even though this book helped me a lot, I sometimes have bad thoughts and sometimes, I have the same thoughts: "What would it be like if I didn't exist?" but not as often. When I finished reading the book, I was glad to know (even though I new before) that I wasn't the only kid or teen that had these certain kind of thoughts, I read and heard them in books, magazines, newspapers, and on the television on certain shows, but I felt better knowing, that all of that was real. I also photocopied some poems and stories that really helped me through my tough times, and I even wrote some to help me get my thoughts and anger out. This book really helped me.
