Things Worth Living For

Last Saturday, I came close to ending my life. I was advised by a friend (the same friend described here)that I should write a list of all the things that makes my life worth living. If you are in a similar mindset, I would highly recommend this. It won’t work for everyone, but if I can help even one person to see that there are reasons to live, when everything seems useless, that’ll be enough. I am now in a good mindset, so you guys don’t need to worry!

Here’s my list:

– Isabella (this is the person who has helped me so much through the last few weeks – and Isabella isn’t her actual name, for privacy reasons)

– YouTube

– Video games (I’m still technically a child, so don’t say I’m childish 😏)

– Food

– University?

– Changing the world (eg human rights)

– Alcohol (No, I’m not addicted)

– The World Scholar’s Cup

– The Dead2Red

– A-Level Results Day

– The day I get an offer from the University I want to go to

– Music

– Future, possibly brilliant, music

– Finding someone to love with all my might

– Pizza (I know I already said food, but I need a new category for pizza)

– Nachos (Ditto)

– My blog, and all of my brilliant community (I love you all 💕)

I realise that some items on my list you won’t understand, but you can look them up if you’re interested, because they’d take too long to explain.

Also, this is a really personal post, so I hope I don’t regret posting it

  1. “Future, possibly brilliant, music”
    This is my speciality in life =)

    Well since this is personal, let me share sumn personal too. A few days ago, I was on the edge of a complete mental breakdown, repeating a mantra “I can’t go on; I’m exhausted!”.

    I felt like I couldn’t breathe and I just didn’t want to do anything but stay tucked in my bed.
    I was praying for help and…
    Right when I was on the very edge, it started raining (the first rain in months). Rain makes me incredibly happy.
    There’s always someone there to listen.
