Reason to Live Wall

A Reason To Live Wall

The aim of this wall is to give those who do have a reason to go on living a chance to share their reason with those who have none of their own. With your help we might be able to give suicidal people something to help them carry on. Maybe they can take your reason for living and use it as a reason to keep going themselves.

You do not need to be logged in to add a comment to this wall but, to prevent abuse and spam, your comment will not appear until it has been approved. This wall is for people who may be in a fragile state of mind so comments will be “cleaned up” if they contain language that may be offensive or links to questionable sites

Every day there are thousands of people all over the world who can’t think of a single good reason to go on living. Each human being is unique, one of a kind, totally irreplaceable and suicide is a dreadful waste of human potential. Help is available. The suicidal person just needs to live long enough to find it but that can be hard to do when you feel nobody cares and there is no hope.

If you are suicidal, read the wall, know it was created to give you encouragement, a bit of hope or the incentive you need to keep trying. Know that every person who added their own reason to live here was thinking of you and added it in the hope it would help you go on in the face of your despair and exhaustion.

Know that people DO care, you DO matter, you CAN be helped and call your doctor, a counsellor or your local suicide help line.

Good reasons to live:
  • To see the beauty in the world--even if it's just a humble weed growing in a crack of cement, or a glimpse of the sky showing between tall buildings.
  • To be able to add to the beauty in the world--even if it's just making tea and toast for a friend, or for yourself. Wipe the table. Fold your napkin. Enjoy your tea.
  • To make things better for somebody else--even if it's just a kind smile at a stranger, or holding a door open for the person walking behind you.
  • To keep going until you can really shine your light onto the world...because your combination of gifts is unique.
  • To be able to say "I had hard times, but I worked my way to better days."
  • To be able to pass this on to another person.
  • Whoever is reading this, breathe deeply, be assured that you can make a positive difference in the world, and be kind to yourself. Start small and keep going. Life is a gift, even when it's painful. I'm not just saying this--I'm comforting myself at the same time.
Thank you for running this Web site. Would you consider starting a wall where people could post their responses to the "reason to live wall?"
