    I'm new, I posted an introductory in the designated area.. :biggrin:

    I'm curious, whats keeping you going? If you had to pick up to three things what are your major motivators for living? What are the hopes or reasons you keep hanging on?

    I do think everyone has to have at least one thing preventing their suicide.
    I see most here including myself have made attemps but what is your reason for not persisting?

    My reasons are the following

    1- My boyfriend. I know it sounds cliche and young and dumb but sometimes I feel like he's my only reason. We've been together for two years but he was my best friend all through highschool... I know he needs me as much as I need him and I hate hurting him.

    2- Odd as it sounds, the idea of being a mother one day. Being a mommy one day was something I have always wanted... even though I often doubt I'd be any better at that than everything else I'm no good at...

    3- The hope of being able to move away one day and be somewhere new.. maybe theres somewhere I could be happy.

    Thanks, although at the worst moments I always find reasons why they're invalid or selfish or stupid.

    Also, answers from anyone else don't have to be as positive as mine were.. even simple things like fear of physical pain or religious beliefs would count too. I was just curious whats keeping everyone else around.

    Outcast as I am, what keeps me going is the constant remembrance of all the sacrifices that a loved one made for me.

    Nothing. I refuse to fight anymore... I don't know what I'm waiting for.

    I can only think of two reasons and they are that one day i will find someone who makes me happy and that at the end of the day life is what we make of it.

    Nothing is. If I could kill myself without the risk of surviving or feeling pain, I'd be dead by now. I want to die so much. I feel so horrible.

    i like being alive, i just can't deal with the shit that comes with it (and i've gone through a lot of that). if i didn't like being alive i'd be dead a long long while ago cos, i've been near death for a long time.

    I stay through sheer bloody mindedness. I have fought so hard so far, why should I throw it all away. I should have died at the start, but I didn't. Now I'm just plain awkward.
