No matter what age, situation or anything else you are in. Below, let's start a list about reasons not to commit suicide. Life has its ups and down. List ANY reason, even if it's just little things, like watching the sunset or hanging out with friends. But please keep the list numbered for organisation.
I, like many nerdfighters, have struggled with depression. Though I never once comptemplated suicide, depression is most likely a pre-step along with other mental illnesses.
And the "zest" in life seems to have disappeared. One thing I did come across is a professor named Randy Pausch, who is famous for a book named "The Last Lecture". He is definitely inspiring. If you had limited time to live, what would you do with your life? It's sad to know that there are people who are fighting for their lives and buying time as much as possible whilst there are people who are looking to end their life. I have once been told that the contemplation of suicide occurs when a person FEELS like they no longer have the resources to cope with their situation.
I think this list will serve many purposes. If possible, I hope this list gets famous some day. So, if there is some way someone can make it famous online, by all means, do so. This is a collaborative list. Teamwork! Feel free to add positive stories or how you overcame your struggles after you write down a couple of reasons. Add anything inspiring to the list or in the story as well. Keep it at a reasonable length. FEEL FREE TO ADD ANY ADVICE about LIFE IN GENERAL OR SPECFIC THINGS AS WELL.
I hope this list will save a person's life someday. But the main objective is prove life's beauty and how precious it is. Whether or not someone decides on commiting suicide, it is most likely up to them.
Goal: 150 reasons (more would be great though.
1. Ice cream tastes great.
2. Music is a beautiful creation and meant to calm and sooth the mind.
3. If you look for the negative things, you will find it. If you look for the positive things, you will find it.
4. Nerdfighteria and its existing members are definitely composed of some awesome particles.
5. A lot of people want the same things - love, enough money to live off of and retire, friends, validation, respect, acceptance and happiness.
