Reasons to Live
**Originally posted by tumbletinkerbell

For those of you who have reached the end of your rope and see no other option than letting go, I dedicate this to you. May you live a long and happy life.

*Puppies (like maggie! she loves everyone! especially YOU!)
*Fresh-baked cookies and brownies
*Warm spring days
*Fresh Flowers
*The 7th Harry Potter Book
*You Mom and Dad and Sisters and Brothers
*Your friends
*Raising your kids so they don't have to go through the same pain you did
*Snow Angels and Snowmen and Snow Days
*College and Knowledge
*Bright blue skies
*Fresh rain
*Hugs and Kisses and Love
*The really funny and cute and amusing smileys that keep showing up
*ben and jerry's phish food ice cream
*full moons
*water skiing
*a favorite song
*dreams
*deciding on a name for your nameless fish
*scrapbooking
*sparkles
*crazy hair days
*evening walks in the park
*your favorite food
*new experiences
*cookie dough
*sunsets and sunrises
*new kitties!
*deep conversations with your best friends
*sarcasm...yay!
*new hair cuts
*new school clothes
*half-baked ice cream bar from ben and jerrys
*cute guys
*your first kiss
*any kiss thereafter
*clear water on a white sand beach
*Warm covers and a good book
*Frozen lemonade in 100+ degree weather
*Friends
*Prom
*Dressing up
*Dressing down
*Sleeping all day
*Your favorite stuffed-animal from when you were little
*Your first house and your first new car
*Inside jokes
*All the silly little sentimental things that make you smile
*Smiles
*Because I care

If you want to add to the list, PM an Admin or a Supermod and they'll add your reasons. Yay.

This is for everyone out there struggling, everyone out there who can't figure out what to do or where to go or why to wake up tomorrow. I care about you and hate that you have to go through this pain. Let me help, or let someone help. You don't know the pain you will cause by not being here anymore.

Please, if you need help...find it. A friend, teacher, school counselor (mine was amazing), parent, sibling, ME--but please, find help, reach out and don't let go. I'm always here if you want to talk.
