Yup, a good story, but it's even better now I completely understand what he means, not just know what he said but understand it.
I used to think he said someone out there would love me and would be the one for me and that if I died they'd never find their perfect match because it was simply gone from the world, but that's not all of it.
I realized when I finally got through depression that he meant me with that someone. I'd be hollow forever. If you kill yourself you will never have the joy and pride of life and having lived and having learned. It's hard to explain, but you will be hollow and you won't get what you really want: salvation.

Funny thing is, I learned this by talking to an older version of myself in a dream.
During depression I had this dream with all different roads leading different versions of me and they all tried to tell me something and eventually I learned what they meant and I got over depression and I had another dream and I met the last version of me that I couldn't get to before because the path she was on was too cloudy. It makes me think and it gives me strength somehow.

I think these appearances, these angels, strangers or whatever they are, they are amazing and I hope everyone here can experience something like that that makes them happy and spirited. :)

that sounds amazing... and I believe we have different aspects of our self for sure, and that we act out and play certain roles, even without knowing it. and the more we get to know ourselves, the more confusing it can get because we are all those people, we are all the feelings, the experience of being human. So it sounds amazing to have that dream...

for myself, I remember asking my guardian angel or whoevers out there, what to do about my sitation (this was a few years ago). I asked clear and concise before going to bed. Nothing. No reply. so I woke up the next day and got in my car for work. Almost there I heard a "voice" which wasn't a voice but just something in my ear, stating: Fear is false. And without quite realising it then, it answered my question. It just wasn't the answer I was expecting. So I think our guardians may not be separated from us, but in our mind, through the spirit of a dead relative, etc, coming through to our limited everyday mind:)

yes! A moment I will never forget. I was in a terrible place in my late teens and tried to end my life. When I woke up in the hospital everything changed for me, I felt as if I was opening my eyes for the first time. I felt peace and love and clarity like I have never felt before. The nurse wheeled me into another room in the hospital and I sat there alone for a while, suddenly another nurse brought a very old man into the same room I was in and left him there with me as she went to get more sheets for the beds. He looked at me and started to laugh so I asked him what was so funny? He replied " you're young and now know what to do and that makes me happy". I was shocked and felt such a strong surge of love, call it Divine intervention. I honestly still feel it today, 17 years later.

I once saw a grim reaper with his hand extended towards me standing next to my bed. I reached out to try to grab him but I couldn't touch him my hands went right through. At the moment I didn't care if I lived or died and I thought he had came to take me. It made me sad when it went away.

I have requested talks with God before after my dad died because I needed to get things straight between the two of us (God and I) and he has appeared to me in my dreams. Up in the clouds, on a glass like surface. He had no face, it was just a bright light.

Perhaps the reaper was there to show you that it was not your time?

Mine is my nan. When I am feeling really bad I can smell her violet perfume in the room and sometimes it is over powering. Sometimes I feel her touch me. She strokes my shoulders and I know she is singing to me like she did when I was little. There is nothing frightening about this, She still sees me as her little girl.
-----I have never seen her or heard her but I know when she is about and she always makes me feel better. I feel love and peace, she makes me feel safe and I feel joy and happiness. I know I am not alone when I smell violets.
-----I also know that when it is my turn she will be there waiting for me. She died 36 years ago.

Nanny. I still love you even after all these years. Thank you for being there. Then and now.

I met a girl online who was really awesome. It all started after she sent a PM complimenting my avatar, of all things. We conversed for a few days back and forth over PMs, and later Google Talk. She was also depressed, and opened up about her trauma over her headset. I didn't have a headset, so I couldn't (that would be A LOT of text), but I really wanted to because the aftermath was similar to mine and I really liked her. We flirted a lot, which I have NEVER done before, even online.

About a week later, she just fell off the map and I haven't heard from her since March. Almost every day, I couldn't wait to chat with her. And keep in mind, I get very paranoid. Even without the paranoia, I'm not a talker.

Sounds like a strange encounter to me.

I met a kind woman once. I was sitting on a bench, crying, with my luggage with me, completely devastated and exhausted... In a foreign country, my girlfriend had broken up with me - very suddenly.. and I was completely emotionally lost.. A complete stranger saw me, told me to get up, walked me to a cafê and gave me money for tea and some cookies.. Then she told me to buy a plane ticket home. She left me some coins before she went away. She was late for a meeting, she said.. I wish I could meet her again and thank her for being there. I had gone around crying for several days. She was the only one that noticed...

I've been reading so many forums such as this, because I've met someone I believe to be an angel. I've recently moved to Europe and have been going through some really horrific experiences.. I think I was close to bottom in my life but I found ways to bring myself back up - barely. One night I was out with a friend whom I didn't know that well - we went to a club in the city like usual and he was having some issues and completely ditched me. But, I was used to these types of clubs and quickly found new people to talk to. I was feeling weary around men because of the horrible events that had recently happened, but one guy came up and was intently talking to me. I felt strangly comfortable around him and drawn to what he was saying. I didn't keep in contact with him or his friends that night, but the next evening I went to a huge music event and randomly ran into his friend, and then eventually saw him again. We were all popping x and he didn't want to try his, said he'd never done it before. Later in the night, he started talking to me about things that were really intense.. when I started listening his words really hit me and made such clear sense. He talked about being "lost" in life and genuinely tried to help me with any problem I had going on in my head. and I completely trusted him and felt safe around him, it was a feeling I couldn't quite put my finger on.
At the end of the night I told him the most horrific dark part of my mind, which was that I had been drugged and raped a few weeks prior, which I had been craving some type of help and comfort with, but that I hadn't gotten, but of course he knew just what to do and say to me to make me feel so much better. I woke up that next morning (alone) feeling amazing and so at peace, couldn't realize why. I contemplated maybe I loved him, but now I realize it was the love of God through him. That next day I came over, sober this time, and we just talked and I completely broke down, opened up, which he knew was what I needed in my life. He knew things about me that we're never mentioned - how I handle stress, trauma, happiness. Why I act the way I do. My childhood. My parents. All my relationships and how I view people. How I have a hard time connecting with people. After that he showed me what love was. He made me feel safe. I told him love was never worth it but he said it was exactly what I needed. After that he said he'd given me a little hope and that "I wouldn't understand what he's saying now, but later it'll all make sense" (which is similar to a verse from John I saw on my Facebook page a few days later!!!) After that I saw him one last time, we walked around the city and he said "not everyone is out to get you. people want to see you smile" and he made me insanely happy. He had to catch a flight out that night.. He taught me so much and taught me a love I've never known.. but I knew this wasn't a relationship type of love. I now realize it was the love of God.
I'm currently back in America visiting my hometown and my father, who is a recently born-again Christian, mentioned angels. Immediately it clicked for me and I kept asking him tons of questions and all the recent little events in my life seemed connected. God had been talking to me and has been helping me. In everything I'd done after I met that man and why he changed my life, and why I couldn't quite figure out what he was. I'm now a Christian trying to find out more about the amazing spiritual world :)
