give me a reason not to do it. I have a ton of pills in front of me. It's been too long. 13 years of depression and self harm. I honestly don't know what the point is anymore. I can't even go to work right now. I don't know how I'm going to pay my rent next month. Can anyone help me find a reason to keep going?

Hi Ella (really pretty name, by the way!),

I'm very sorry that you feel this way. I know it might seem like it's been so long and you've gone through so much and the pain is never going to end, but it WILL. You're only 21 - think about your life ten or fifteen years from now! You could be married to someone absolutely amazing who loves you to death, with children and a beautiful house and your dream job. You are truly an amazing person and you deserve to have this future. Please don't throw it away. Your time on this earth has not come to an end yet. We still need you!

And the world WILL blink if you die. Heck, some people will cry when you die. I would be so sad if I found out that you had committed suicide. I don't even know what I would do with myself. Even if you feel like you have no one else in the world you cares about you, just know that you ALWAYS have a family here on TeenHelp who will ALWAYS care about you. We're here for you no matter what, and we'll help you get through this. You ARE strong enough to keep fighting! Please, never, never, never give up on life.

I really think you need to talk to someone, right now. Call your mom, a friend, a hotline, or even 911 if you feel like you truly are going to attempt suicide. Talk to a doctor. Go to the ER if you have to. Tell someone, "Give me the best reason you can think of to live." Just do something, please. If you aren't already seeing a counselor, I highly suggest that you look into this, because I think it would help you so much. But for the time being, please just talk to somebody about how you're feeling. It's amazing how much better it feels just to know that someone in the world has an idea of what you're going through.

You CAN do this, all right? Just trust me on this one. Life is worth living for more reasons than I can even think of. Check out the "Reasons to Live" sticky (http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f11-d...-reasons-live/) in the Depression & Suicide forum, if you need a long list. And remember, you can PM/VM me anytime you need to talk, and I'm always happy to help. Stay strong, okay? <3

Hey gorgeous,

I understand how you feel, but suicide isn't worth it! You may feel like in the past and present your life can't get any better BUT it WILL! You just have to hang on tightly and I guarantee there is an end. It will get better no matter how long it takes, it will! You'll be surrounded by people who care so much for you (and you can see it, I'm sure there are loads of people who love you right this second!)

Suicide doesn't only hurt you, it hurts your FAMILY to!

Hang on for them, even if you think they wouldn't care, they would!

Jay.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

A reason? I can go on.
  • Suicide hurts your family and friends
  • Later in life you'll have the chance to have beautiful children, an amazing partner, you have/will have amazing friends
  • You have a future
  • Recovery is possible
  • Many true smiles are ahead, happiness is ahead
  • You're meant to live
  • You're unique
  • You're special
  • You're amazing
  • You're lovely
  • You are a beautiful person
  • There is no one exactly like you. You are special, you are worth it, you are beautiful

Tomorrow, wake up and live like you've never had before. Embrace life and all the possibilities and chances. Know that you can shine in life and use all the experience with the bad things to inspire people later in life. Please know that you can accomplish anything, you're amazing.

Can you call a hotline or speak with family/friends about your suicidal thoughts?

PM/VM me if you need someone to talk to, I can listen.

Stay Strong <3

thanks guys.
I made it through last night just about. I cut a lot and took a small overdose (not enough to cause any real damage). I'm seeing my therapist tomorrow, so will talk to her about this. I feel pretty frustrated with myself, that was my first overdose in 7 months, and I had been doing well with self harming less often too.

Slip ups happen. The good thing is you got through the night. Yes, you may have overdosed (but not badly) and you may have self harmed, but look at how far you've come. Don't look at the whole as just last night, look at the whole as in the past several months. One night, you slipped up. You've done amazingly well and I think you should be really proud of yourself for it.

I can give you a list of reasons to list, but I'm not going too. Why? YOU have to make your own reasons to live. We can say anything and everything but to you, they may mean nothing. I know I have personal reasons to live like going to Uni next year and being able to sleep with my cat and the side of me. Look at your life. Like at what you are doing or what you could be doing and set goals for yourself. Don't sit down for an hour straight to come up with a list. Start a list now, come up with just one thing, and keep coming back to is as the days go on. Think about what you what in your life and in your future and make steps to get to where you want to be.

Life is so beautiful and you can have it if you keep fighting. Giving up and killing yourself, well, that's literally going to get you no where. It's just nothingness. If you stay at it and work hard, you'll get something amazing.

You can do this, stay fighting. <3

I'm sorry you still overdosed, but I'm glad it wasn't enough to badly hurt you. You're doing good self-harming less. I hope you feel better and talking to someone helps, remember I'm here if you need me. <3
