Title speaks for itself. :) Why should you or other people stay alive?

Note: try to avoid unhealthy reasons - keep it uplifting :star:
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    I really love this idea Mike! It's ace!

    My reasons so stay alive are:

    -My family and friends
    -To be able to volunteer
    -To hopefully become a mental health nurse
    -To go to new cute and cosy cafes
    -To play new video games
    -To have fun days out and holidays
    -To be able to get a partner
    -To go out for nice meals
    -To have picnics in the fields with friends
    -To smile and laugh
    -To find new TV shows
    -To have my nails and hair done
    -To cuddle cute animals

    Probably more aha!ย

    Love this thread :) here's mine..
    1 - my friends and family
    2 - my cat
    3 - to write in cute coffee shops
    4 - my determination to prove my team wrong
    5 - to have proper belly laughs
    6 - trips away
    7 - to see new places
    8 - because life is worth living - there is light at the end of the tunnel (and no it's not a train like I believed for so many years) and I think im finally starting to see the light :)

    Because of work, might seem like a silly one, but work have been SO understanding and supportive of my mental health. When I first ended up sectioned I thought they would be angry as we were short staffed, but my manager just said 'your job is safe, it doesn't matter how long it takes just come back better' that stuck with me, little did they know I would be off for a year ๐Ÿ˜‚ย  but as promised I had a job to come back too. The list could go on with story's like this, I will never find a work place more understanding, my colleagues have seen me breakdown, but they've never judged, and have called me brave and inspirational for all the awareness I have raised ๐Ÿ˜Š basically they're just the best ๐Ÿ˜‚ย

    To see the change in seasons <3

    It shows that as the world changes so do we - so if we're having a bad time, just think of it as a season and remember just as seasons change, so does our life and you will be happy again!

    to read new books and get lost within the pages
    to achieve your dreams (or even just small goals)
    to see something and think 'I have to show that to XYZ, they'll love it!'

    'You will one day experience joy that matches this pain. You will cry euphoric tears at the Beach Boys, you will stare down at your baby daughterโ€™s face as she lies contentedly asleep in your lap, you will make great friends, you will eat delicious foods you havenโ€™t tried yet, you will be able to look at a view like this one and feel the beauty, there are books you havenโ€™t read yet that will enrich you, films you will watch while eating extra large buckets of popcorn, and you will dance and laugh and have sex and go for runs by the river and have late night conversations and laugh until it hurts. Life is waiting for you. You might be stuck here for a while, but the world isnโ€™t going anywhere. Hang on in there if you can. Life is always worth it'. - Matt Haig

    just thought of another one! day 3 of 365 days of self care is 'see' I am SO thankful I am able to see all the beautiful things in this world, its something most take for granted, but having a granny who is blind, it makes me appreciate it that little bit more <3

    not really a reason but don't know where else I would put this, maybe ranty thread? I don't know...

    Theres a thing going round on twitter about if your first attempt succeeded how long it would of been (kinda depressing but triggered so many emotions) It would of been 8 years for me...

    If I had died 8 years ago, I would of never met my nephew, I wouldn't of been able to see him grow, cry at his school concerts, I wouldn't of met half of my best friends I currently have, I wouldn't of met my big sister for the first time, I wouldn't of been able to see my 3 best friends become parents, I wouldn't of been able to have my first legal drink at a pub, I wouldn't of gotten my first job, I wouldn't of seen or done all the amazing things I have. I wouldn't of been able to ride in a monster truck for my birthday and crush cars (that was fun!) the list could go on...

    so I guess my reason to stay alive, is because of all the stuff i would miss out on, the people I haven't met yet and the places and things i haven't seen :)<3
