Although you may be feeling an intense pain right now, your life still has a purpose. Suicide survivors will tell
you, you'll wake up one morning and find that your pain is gone and your life has become everything you'd
hoped it would be. Don't give up.
You are stronger than you think.
You are not hopeless or useless, and mental illness does not define you. Even though it's hard to hold on right
now, dig down deep and do whatever you need to find your strength. Strength kicks mental illness in the butt.
Your future is worth it.
This is not the end of your story, and there is a whole wide world out there filled with amazing things you have
yet to experience. Dreams and hopes can come true, friend. Keep believing you are worthy of this happy life.
You are loved much more than you think.
You may feel alone and unloved, but don't let these negative thoughts fool you. There are people in your life
who love and care for you. Look for that love and believe it when you see it.
Others are counting on your help.
Because of your experiences, you have the ability to understand people who have similar struggles, and
you can offer them a helping hand and a listening ear right when they need it. Many lives have been saved
by ordinary heroes just like you.
Keep living, friend. Don't let depression convince you there's no hope.
