25 reasons why you shouldn't end your life.


Suicide. That constant act on your mind, debating whether to do it, planning on when to do it, or already writing your suicide note? Thinking how much your life sucks? How you don't want to cry yourself to sleep every night anymore? How you don't want to be bullied everyday? How you're sick of hearing your parents fight? How you're afraid of that abuser coming back and hurting you? How you're tired of feeling lonely? How you wish you had real friends? How you wish you had better grades? How you wish you were pretty, thin and good enough? Please just stop. Or at least, reevaluate your thoughts after reading all these reasons to not end your life: 

  1. It probably isn't as bad as you make it out to be. Over-thinking things make them seem a billion times worse. Try talking them out with someone and see how simple or stupid your problems may be.
  2. Think about those poor, starving children or those cancer patients fighting for their lives, or those people who lost everything in a natural disaster yet refuse to break down and still fight for a good life.
  3. Appreciate what you have instead of glooming over what you don't have. Your life isn't perfect. My life isn't perfect. Nobody's life is perfect. It's not only you.
  4. You are certainly not alone. There are millions of people who struggle with the same thoughts as you on a daily basis and fight those thoughts away. If they can do it, then so can you.
  5. You are good enough. You are pretty enough. You are clever enough. You are talented enough. You are strong enough. You can make your dreams come true. You can have a better life. You can not cry yourself to sleep every night. You can wake up feeling happy. Look in the mirror and tell yourself that every single day. You'll believe it eventually, I promise.
  6. Those haters and bullies want to see you down. Don't let them feel happy with you breaking down. Stay strong. 
  7. Stay strong just for that special one special in your life that you wake up everyday to see.
  8. Everyday is a new day. Being depressed over the past won't change anything. Forget the past. Live for today, and the future will be so much better.
  9. Death is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. 
  10. Don't hurt all of your loved ones. You killing yourself will have unimaginable effects on them forever. They don't deserve to have their lives ruined because you decided to end your life. They will blame themselves no matter what your suicide note says. They will live forever miserable, angry, hurt and all asking that one question: why? 
  11. Ice-cream tastes good.
  12. Whatever you're going through will not last forever. Nothing ever does. Stay strong and wait for things to get better. 
  13. Imagine missing out on everything.... Growing up, meeting new people, having new chances, making new memories with your loved ones.
  14. What about the person who finds you dead? Think about how they'd feel. Would you really want to put them through such horror?
  15. You were brought into this world for a reason. So LIVE!
  16. Never seeing a new day, rain, sunshine, snow, children laughing, a rainbow again.
  17. Never being able to grow up more and make those haters realise that they were wrong all along. Work hard and come out more successful, happier and healthier than them. 
  18. Your life has a value whether you see it or not. Please don't end it.
  19. Missing out on all your favourite artists releasing new work.
  20. Missing out on those first dates... Those butterflies, taking a billion breath-mints.... all for that one special person.
  21. There is always somebody out there who wants you to live and can't imagine life without you.
  22. All that yummy food you will never be able to eat. 
  23. Seeing the iPhone 6! 
  24. You'll never watch the next episode of your favourite show, and you'll never see your favourite movie again.
  25. Once you kill yourself, you're gone. Finished. Bye bye. No one can bring you back. You'll never be able to try out the things you wanted, see places you wanted to see, meet new people, chase after your dreams, make new memories with the people you love. 
Please think about it properly. Do you really want to end everything? We all want to end all that pain and the hurt. But life also has those good little things in them. If you think about it properly, you'll be able to see all of those amazing little details about your life that you never noticed before. Life is so damn good no matter how much pain you're going through at this moment. Slap some sense into yourself and stop moping around. There are people who would do anything to have your life. Some people have absolutely nothing in their lives, yet they still find a reason to smile and a reason to fight harder for a better life. You have family, you have friends, you have a home, you have clothes to wear, you have food to eat, appreciate that for a change. Take a moment out of your day to reflect on your happy memories and all of the blessings that you have been blessed with and then hopefully, you will feel different about ending your own beautiful life.
No matter how many mistakes you have made, appologise, buy the person you hurt a gift. If they forgive you, then great! If they don't, then that is there problem. You have done what you can and that's what matters. We all make mistakes, don't constantly punish yourself for being human.



Stay strong,
You're so beautiful.
I promise.

  9. I Don't know... I know for a fact that I'm the luckiest guy for having a family, friends, and everything that I wanted... I may not be the greatest with love or with being a good friend but I'm trying to live my life and make everyone's life a little easier to live in but i feel so empty inside and I feel so alone to the point where i think about suicide everyday.. I think about what if i left everyone in my life and how I would hurt them. That's the scariest part right now but lately I'm starting to not care anymore. I'm getting lower and lower and i just don't know what to do or what to look for. I'm a 16 year old male in high school. I'm so happy with how my life went but I just feel so lost... I'm just rambling now... Thank you for posting this, made me realize that I'm happy with what i did with my life.

  15. I am sure someone is out there, my thoughts of ending my life was at age 5, how is that even possible? I was sexual abused starting at far 4. Nothing I could do, nitemares, walked in sleep even outside in the middle of the night. No one believed me this was my step dad my mom would not believe me. The point is I am 53 I feel no one cares, I feel my coworkers are always against me, my boss hates me. My husband is at the end of his rope. My husband and son are worried about me all the time is not a good life for them. I just feel everyone would be better off without me. Sad in IL not sure what to do

  17. I believe some people aren't really looking for reasons not to kill themselves.
    They're just looking for people to care about their life and struggle beyond the pain their suicide will cause others. That's rather selfish on the part of those others who want that person to suffer the hell that is their life just because those others don't want to suffer the loss of this person they want in their lives until s/he dies of natural causes...
    It's about people really caring about your fight for a reason to keep going to the point that they're actually invested in your happiness.
    But there's the catch.
    How invested are you in the happiness of others?
    How much do you invest in the struggles of other depressed individuals who perhaps can only be understood by someone like you?
    Just a thought...

    1. What if you you are alone. What if you have lost so much. What if that one special person has already ended it. What if you are not good enough. What if all those you love are already gone. What than please tell me what than.
