Considering Suicide? Here are 100 Reasons to Stay
Thinking about suicide is an understandable response to pain. Unfortunately, suicide is a permanent, irreversible act in reaction to what is often a temporary and solvable problem. You know that saying that goes, “this too shall pass?” It’s true. Feelings change. You will not continue to feel this bad. Even if it doesn’t feel like it right now, there are so many people who want to support you. Even strangers like me.
If you think you’ve run out of reason to keep going, here are 100 more:
If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please know that you’re not alone and that there’s nothing wrong with you or for you to be ashamed of. But nobody will know how to help you if you don’t let them know what’s going on. And if you don’t let them know what’s going on chances are really good you’re going to feel even more alone. And there’s pretty much nothing worse than feeling alone.
Here’s where you can go for help. And trust me when I say nobody will judge you or look down on you.
