50 Reasons To Stay Alive

50 Reasons To Stay Alive  mental illness depression help support UK blogger

Life is hard. We all know that. But I want you to know that nothing lasts forever. Sadness doesn't last forever. Pain doesn't last forever and happiness doesn't last forever. Nothing is guaranteed in life. And that's okay. There will be good and bad times. Times where you feel on top of the world and times where nothing seems to be going right. 

But what I want you to know is that your life is worth living. It may not get better tomorrow, next week or even next year but it will do eventually. Please see it out to the end. You are a beautiful human being. You are a miracle and you better believe it. I know these are words. I know if your suffering with depression or any mental illness that it's a lot harder to believe these words but trust me they are true. 

Please please please talk to someone if you are struggling. Don't bottle it up. It doesn't have to be a friend or the doctor. Confidential helplines like Samaritans are there to listen 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. I say this in every post but please talk to me if you are going through a hard time. We don't have to of spoken before. I am here to listen and support you in a confidential and caring way. You will never trouble me ever. There are so many beautiful reasons to stay alive but here are 50.
