Committed mistakes that are now on my conscience

I am 15 yrs old and think I have suffered a lot. I have tried suicide once, was going stab myself with a knife but then stopped. I had approached a counsellor and she said I am in depression. During the pas year I have done a lot of mistakes which I feel have dirtied my conscience. What should I do?

Hey, I understand where you are coming from and it is fine to have a thought process like this, but now what I would highly recommend you is that you change your current habits which is making you travel down that path. Make some changes in your lifestyle and you will see that the thought processes are changing and you are clearing your conscience. Some of the things that I follow personally:Becoming more rational - Learn about what frightens you, bring facts to light that offer genuine reassurance. Don't go by rumours and speculations that fuel fear.Take yourself out of the anxiety loop - Avoid news stories about terrorism, Stop being addicted to violent scenes on television. Do no promote in yourself or your family a sense of vigilance and silent dread.Talk to someone who really listens - Share how you feel and ask for realistic feedback. For example it isn't realistic to worry that you will become a personal victim of terror. If such a worry haunts you, talks about it. Avoid talking to people who fan the flames of fear.Build a healing connection between yourself and the threat - The bond begins in your own mind. Be a practical Optimist - There's no need to bury your head in sand, but psychologically, there is nothing to be gained by gloomily projecting future events that you have no control over. Gaining control over your own existence is the single best way to decrease general, free floating anxiety.Hope it helps, we can co-create a space where we try to come with a viable solution, if you still find some unresolved issues and If you are still being suicidal, we would suggest you immediately call up a suicide prevention helpline - eg  Vandrevala Foundation Helpline - 1 860 266 2345 (24x7),   Aasra - +91 22 2754 6669 (24x7).
