I Love Being Alive

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 398 People

    But Lately I Really Couldn'...

    But lately I really couldn't tell you why. I guess I love the drama and waking up every morning knowing somethings going to happen- exciting, mellow, or just boring- it's always a mystery when you first get up.

    As painful as it can be sometimes,

    we don't have the right to sit on the sidelines and waste the life we've been given... There is always someone out there fighting to live... Lets appreciate the gift of life while we have it... It's so precious

    Yes I Do

    If you're thinking about suicide, you're not living right. But there is hope it's not as hard to change as you might think!

    Love It. Love It. Can't Get Enough Out of It.

    Although, to be fair, it's the only state of being I have any first-hand familarity with - so there's no point of reference to use for comparison.  From an outsider's POV though, death looks rather tedious.
