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.

The most profound reason I will like to stay alive is because I love the effect I have on people when i walk into a room, I am beautiful...but I don't maintain relationships so i ave a ton of friends I really couldn't care less about.

Well,...reading Kim's story was comforting, I have never thought I'd still want to kill myself if I owned a house or a brand new car.

I really do not care whether I live or die, but death is so welcome.

Right now I have Master's exams in a month and since I am not assimilating what i am studying, I really want to die. But my girlfriend in another city is coming over to spend her leave with my parents and i, so maybe I want to postpone the thought of death until after that. That is very selfish.

I have a great life, I have like 10 suitors but i can't make up my mind because i have bipolar disorder and I wake up in love with a different person everyday so when i think of marriage i want to kill myself, but I have never had sex before and I am 29 so maybe I will like to stay alive and experience sex within the confines of marriage , thereafter I could die.

Truth is i have no foolproof way to kill myself, and I don't want to be an invalid.

But i have a new make-up and jewelry stash so maybe i will kill myself after I am tired of them.

I basically live for those little joys that never last, I am a Christian but I do not enjoy the joy which the spirit gives. Deep down i really want to stay alive and enjoy every bit of life but I made a mistake in my past that haunts me terribly and each time the hurts comes up, I want to kill myself again.

Please stay alive so you can read my next comment because I enjoy writing what I call gibberish and really think I enjoy the fun people derive from reading them, so please stay alive because life is fun when you cast off your cares.
