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.

I am not depressed, but I see no reason to live. Not in a bad way. Just in a "my life is routine, every day only getting older" kind of way. My reason for not dying is I would never want to hurt my parents or siblings by dying before them. I may not understand life, why I'm here, but I do know that I care enough about the people I see every day that I wouldn't want to cause them that much pain or grief. I just wish I had a better reason to live...

My life feelings like this: wake up, eat, watch tv, eat, consider going for a walk, eat, shower, work, (waitress at a bar), eat, sleep, repeat. There has to be more to life than this...

On January 31st 2012, shahriyar wrote on this wall, "to smile without any hidden agenda"... Yes. That is my reason today. Smiling just feels so darn good. And I love when someone can't help but smile when he/she sees someone smiling. Thank you Shahriyar.
