Hey Kassy,

I'm sorry you're feeling this way, and while I don't think it's right that you made a deal with a friend that could potentially end in you killing yourself, I'm going to copy and paste the reasons from this thread: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f11-d...-reasons-live/

*The really funny and cute and amusing smileys that keep showing up
*ben and jerry's phish food ice cream

  • "Hold On" by Good Charlotte
  • Shoes

  • Because 80% of suicide attempt victims feel a sudden urge to live after attempting.
  • Crying for joy.
  • Screaming at the top of your lungs
  • Feeling temperature
  • Being able to feel angry, upset, and happy.
  • Being able to cry, yell, and smile.
  • I want to talk to you. : )
Alright, I didn't count how many that was, but I'm willing to bet that that's over 100. And the last reason, "I want to talk to you," comes from me as well... I've talked to you a few times now through PMs, and you're a very nice and wonderful person to talk to. You don't deserve to punish yourself by making a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and I honestly think that if you're feeling this way, you should tell an adult you trust or call 911. They will be able to help, I promise. I hope to God that you start feeling better soon, Kassy. You're one of the nicest people I've spoken to on these forums.

Why do you want a quantity of reasons to live? Isn't the quality of reason(s) to live the issue?

I mean, even if you had only one good reason to live, wouldn't that one reason be good enough? Maybe that reason could be your love for someone (including yourself), how amazing the universe is, or the fact that you're only 15 and have so much good ahead of you that you can't see right now.

Falling in love. And yeah, there's times when you're sure it will never happen. But that just makes it all the more amazing when it does. And you'll be so glad you held on. It'll feel like a reward. THAT'S a reason in itself, and I'm speaking from personal experience.

Honey, you're familiar, like my mirror, years ago

I love this list. If and one has ever seen the movie Bang Bang You're Dead, at the end there are some deep and inspiring reasons to live.

Hey there,

There are a lot of reasons to live. I believe 100 were posted. I hope that they changed your mind and made you want to continue to live. I know that looking at this link (Reasons to Live - TeenHelp) has helped me hang on in the past and maybe it will do the same for you.

I will list a few reasons why I continue to live; I don't know how many of them have been posted for you but if there are repeats I apologize.

1. My neices and nephews and the rest of my family
2. The fact that I can help others in the future
3. I have a lot to offer even if I do not see it
4. Things will not always be this bad
5 "Too the world you might be one person but to one person you might be the world." This is a quote that I have found and every time I feel low I think of it and it helps me remember that there is at least one person out there now or in the future who needs me.
6. Feeling the wind
7. Seeing a rainbow
8. Being hugged
9. Laughing
10. Being able to learn and experience new things.

Please hang in there and know that you matter to a lot of people. If you ever want to talk please feel free to pm me.
