Today, I tried to make a list of things I have to live for. All I have so far is: “So I don’t upset anyone.” MMT

That is such an important reason, and I can tell that you know it. Think about how beautiful that is. There are people whose lives would never be the same without you. There are people who you haven't even met yet who can't wait to know what knowing someone like you feels like. There are people whose lives you will change with whatever you choose to do with yours. Also there are hot beverages on cold days and feeling mud between your toes and wonderful music and a whole world out there to see. And some day, there will be a day when you look back and say "I made it." I don't know who you are but I know how hard it is to feel you have nothing to live for. I am so proud of how far you've already made it. And I think you are an amazing and beautiful person, who obviously cares about the other people in your life.

This is my first post on here. I just felt this really important to reply to. I don't know your situation, but whatever the reasons and however bad it all may seem I do know something. I don't know you, but I know that you deserve to live. You are more important than anybody can put into words. It may be rough now, but please fight through it because there will be a time where you will be so thankful you did and see why it is worth it and why you are worth it. I had a very rough childhood and at times I thought it would be easier to just end it. If there was one thing I could go back in time and tell the younger me, it would be to say "Thank you. Thank you for being brave and not giving up and for helping me have this life today." It will not always be easy, but it is always worth it. You are worth it. Please stay strong.

OP, I don't know your situation or how you are feeling at this moment but I do empathize with you. I want you to know that is really does get better, it really truly does. And I know that I am sure you've heard that quite a lot but I am going to put my email in here. If you ever want to talk to anyone about anything without having them judge you for who you are, please feel free to contact me. bri1216@aol.com I can only hope all of you will be nice enough not to spam my personal email or just send it out to whomever but I don't know how to share it with this person in any other way. You are loved!

Not upsetting anyone is a really good quality to have. You will most certainly be able to go places and do things with that's quality. Just please don't go through with suicide. You will most certainly regret it if you do. Just think, in a couple of years, you will look back at this moment and thank yourself, just like the second commenter did. I promise that list is miles long already, you just don't see it, but I see it. :)

And, OP, please comment on this page saying that you are okay. Please? I care about you.

So I just created an account to comment on this. You are important. You mean a lot to many people, I'm sure. I truly hope that you're okay and you were just having a bad day. Take care of yourself, sweetie. Things may be difficult but they will get better. ð

I did the same as the person before me. I created an account just to comment. Your only reason, is a great reason. So great, its totally legit to put it another 10 times. People will miss you, you're loved by someone even if you don't know it. If you need to talk, I'm here too. My email is agent_aurora@ymail.com. I check it often. Stay strong my friend.

I just created an account to tell you that there are so many reasons. You must be having a bad time not to see them. Send an email to me stanky@mailinator.com and we can chat. Number 1. God loves you.

How refreshing this MMT is, I wonder!! That's a cause everyone would die for OP.. Hang in there

Hey OP, maybe life really sucks these days or you just feel numb and don't care about much anymore. But obviously some people care about you and you are still sensitive to that. Hang on for yourself, for people who love you. I hope one day you will be able to look back and be so glad you did.

Dearest OP, Life is hard. Life has pain. But life has great beauty, joy, laughter, and tears. So many reasons why we shed tears. I want to tell you that when you live, you enrich others' lives in the most amazing of ways. They may not acknowledge it, and perhaps that's why you have to live -to teach others how to acknowledge grace, love, and hope. I'm the oldest grandchild of 20 grandkids, we're super close. 2 cousins ended their lives one year apart from each other, in different states with different influences but for the same reason -they felt that, within themselves, that they weren't good enough, that the life they wanted wasn't good enough to others. OP, I hope you find someone that you can reach out to and express your fears, express your pain, because maybe by overcoming this, you will grow and do something only you were meant to do. This life is yours and it is wonderful. I am humbled that you are sharing this pain with us, and let our hope + love reach out to you too~

When I was in my twenties, I had a friend commit suicide. His family's life was never the same. His father died soon after of heart problems and his mother was left alone to raise her youngest son. His mother is still heart broken, 15 years later as is many of his friends'. I wish you had more reasons to list, but the reason you did list is so very important. Please do not do that to your family and friends. It will destroy them. I pray you find peace and happiness.

I read your post when I was just browsing these stories, because they always make me feel grateful for everything I have. You posted it about a year ago now but I wanted to set up an account and comment anyway, so you know people are thinking of you. I want you to know that humanity is inherently beautiful - something inside of us is always thinking of others before ourselves and that's just what your comment shows. You have no idea of the lives that you touch and that you will touch. There will always be people who love you. If life starts getting you down, remember: to the world you are just one person, but to one person you are the world. I used to ask myself the question 'Do I mean anything?' and feel really insignificant, but this always reminds me that we don't have to be supreme athletes or geniuses. Most of us are just plain ordinary, but we change the world just by being in it. Even if it's just that elderly lady you helped cross the street this morning or the homeless man you gave change. You are infinitely powerful and a beautiful person - don't you ever forget it. No matter how much you might doubt it, others know it is true and that's the most important thing. I hope your mind finds a brighter place and finds it soon. X x x P.s. I made you a list of websites that restore my faith in the world: http://www.slice.ca/breaktime/photos/35-heartwarming-photos-that-will-restore-your-faith-in-humanity/#!98a2d96198ee592b4b7d2eb77f31027a http://www.buzzfeed.com/expresident/pictures-that-will-restore-your-faith-in-humanity#vujw6g restoremyfaithinhumanity.net https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxHI6YQRFak https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx6X0ucaP_c http://news.distractify.com/people/amazing-moments/
