    If there is 1 thing that would keep you from ending your life- What is it?

    The only thing that would keep me from ending my life would be- if I won the lottery.
    Then I could move out and buy a townhome, buy a new car and some other things. Only then life would possibly be more deal-able. I would invest alot of it.
    5 million after taxes would even be enough.

    If I could find someone to love and to love me in return, find a soul-mate. I highly doubt its ever going to happen though. :(

    if my ex told me that she lied when she said she didn't love me anymore... if I could hold her in my arms even for just a minute.. it'd make everything better

    The fact that I couldn't let the people I love feel the way I felt when my husband completed suicide.

    If i had won the lottery found true love or found a way around the guilt of knowing my parents and brother would hurt forever.

    To win the lottery : stop working, traveling, paying all my debts and the most important, sue my father for pure revenge.

    its kind of a toss up between 2 things... winning the lottery and being with my girlfriend basically everyday instead of for a few days at a time every few months. Although... winning the lottery could lead to that....

    I have no one single reason for wanting to live.

    Picking one alone, to be honest, I don't know. I don't really need money - or more money. Lottery would make things worse! I know what would happen - same old, new tale. It would be more expensive women - I'm not paying! I'm just saying the drinks and other things would be on me.

    Your children would be spoilt - you'd marry a money-chaser! It happens.

    So no lottery sized win - I'd self destruct - and take you with me maybe. For all your good intentions, that much cash would change you. You think it might help - but if you struggle for a friend or lover when poor - and you at least have a few people who accept you - with that much cash - you would imagine that many were only there for 'your money'. Some would! Hard to say but I value friendship and think that if you got suddenly rich you could never have any new friends!

    Or you would have to live a double life! Sneaking out of your old home to be flown to the Stately Home or whatever digs are yours.

    I guess, love, in a general term as well as romantic, friendship, kinship (family) and a myriad of other interests keep me from taking the slip road off the highway of life!

    Don't care what others think about you either. I mean be yourself and nobody has to be around who disturbs your peaceful world!

    My regards!

    Having 1 significant other that would be with me for the rest of my life.
  13. Aargh. Good question.
    For me...
    To be with the woman I love.
    All this hell would seem legitimate and worth the experience if I could just hold her for even a second every night.

    Funny thing, this is exactly the same reason for me too. I am spending nearly 1000$ a month now on the lottery. So if I win I can just move to whatever place I want and spend it there by myself. Other than that I really got nothing to live for.

    I promised my family I would never make another attempt on my life .I take promises seriously . I regret having made it but I did so i resist the urge everyday and it is hard.

    So when you have made that promise, you might live a miserable life for many many years because of a promise?

    To me a promise is a serious thing ,I have nothing but my word and if I can't keep that then I am truly a worthless person. If it means I have to live in hell for the rest of my life then so be it. I already think I am worthless but to break my word would be to take away the one thing I have.
