Find a reason to live

thepsychologicalworld

“Find a reason to live.
When you don’t have any reason to live,
don’t use the same reason for death.”

Depressions, trauma events, unfortunate life, and a life with no purpose are the reason that force people to choose suicide or hurt themselves in some way. When you are at your wit’s end , just take a break for a while.

We need to accept the fact that life will never stop teaching us a lesson. It is always a process of learning the life itself or any specific subject. I won’t deny the truth that sometimes life bites us so hardly that no positive quotes or vibes work out. I am not going to write in this post, what are the things you can do to overcome depression. I  have already written about this in other articles on the same site. I can completely understand going through suicidal thoughts is not easy. It does not mean you are a weak person. All I want to say is “You have my empathy.”  By being the part of the life’s rich pageant, you are already a winner.


Remember, you guys are strong and maybe most of you hold the life journeys that no one knows about. No one can walk on your path as bravely as you did. I know there is this void feeling and no room for happiness. Many of you may chase for happiness but may not find it easily. If we could come so far with our super powers then let’s not end it in a bitter way.

Let’s endure the challenging paths for us.

I have helped many people going through suicidal thought and attempt , which has made me write this short post.

  1. Yup, my family is the reason I live. And myself. I try to always be grateful for what I have!

  2. Sometimes it can be really hard to find a reason to live, to find a reason to keep on going, sometimes you have to look very hard into things.

  3. Well said. It’s so important to find your why. Thanks for sharing

  4. Depression is so real and sometimes when one is in the throes of it, even valid reasons to live seems hopeless. At those times, we need someone to pull us through.

  5. Depressing is a sad and serious thing to experience. It’s hard to convince people that things can (and will) change and it will get better. My young cousin suffered from depression and didn’t get help and ended up taking his own life at 27. It’s great when people recognize that they need help.

    1. I am sorry to know about your cousin. Yes, people who self realize is a great step to get treated at the earliest.

  6. Life knocks us different ways. It is we, who need to decide, how to pull things up. Great post and absolute love for it.

  7. Hannah Marie says:

    This is such an inspiring post. Finding a deeper meaning about life and what you do is wonderful. This is one of my favorites.

  8. Personally I found my reason for living in the little things that surround me and to which I learned to value like the smile of my mother or a chat with my father. I want this for as long as possible.

    We all go through challenges in this life and it is our ability to cope that keeps us going. It is great that getting the necessary help for anyone who can use it is available and yes we need to find a reason to live if we are to survive.

  10. Jeremy Life says:

    To find a reason why I live, I’ve been thinking about my family. They are the reason that I live now. Thanks for a good article.

  11. Depression is a real thing. I feel for those who are suffering from feelings of hurting themselves or taking their life. I hope they find they life line and find someone they can confide in. Everyone has a purpose in life.

  12. People have different ways to coping with life. Some are able to cope with it by turning to addictive behavior. While others find happiness in family and friends.

  13. Alexandra Cook says:

    My family and my music are some of my reasons for living. Without them, I would be drifting a lot more!

  14. As someone who has dealt with depression off and on all of my life, this rings very true for me. Thanks for sharing this inspiring post.

  15. finding a reason to live is so important this days especially with issues on mental health! family or love one support plays a factor in reasoning this out

  16. Passion Piece says:

    Everyone should find a good reason to live … it’s really important! My reason is my family and friends for sure … and my passion for writing, too! 🙂

  17. Michael David Oyco says:

    Hard to tell really if someone is in those state. I just hope and pray for the best. It’ll all depend on how your react on it. Stay inspired – just by writing this is one.

  18. I have also recommended the same books on my blog to combat suicide. it is har to tell if someone is in that state of mind if youre not attentive

  19. Chelle Dizon says:

    We really have to be sensitive for other person’s feelings. We don’t know if that person is already depressed or fighting a self esteem problem already. Thanks for this inspiring reminder.

  20. Princess Quinn says:

    This is a pretty inspiring post to read. It is more on finding a deeper meaning in life. I loved reading this one.

  21. Aishwarya Shenolikar says:

    Depression can kick in so easily these days. This mantra is really helpful. Thanks for sharing!

  22. Depression can often blind people and make them think in a certain way that doesn’t allow them to see beyond their own wall. It doesn’t allow them to see other options. This is why it’s so important to recognise when our friends are not themselves anymore, and just be there to support them.

  23. Bindu Thomas says:

    This is really inspiring and it’s so important to find a reason while life knocks us in different ways. Thanks for sharing.

  24. That quote is absolutely amazing! I had never thought about it that way, but it made me think!

  25. We have a reason to be alive but we must find that reason; then , we can take on life heads-on!

  26. I just love the motivational words. It’s so important to keep looking ahead even when obstacles come our way.

  27. I usually go through seasonal depression. Winters make me feel meh and unmotivated. I used to have massive depression spells as well until I started seeing a therapist.

  28. Thank you for bringing attention to depression and suicide. We all need to be more considerate to people, that everyone has a story of suffering and are hiding behind a smile.

  29. I have suffered from anxiety and depression for years and found hope through Jesus!

  30. Such a motivating and inspirational thought. I agree there must be reason to live even in worst condition.

  31. natalielovesbeauty says:

    I am glad to read you were able to get people out of a dark place. I think finding what you are passionate about can help get you out of it and give your life purpose again.

  32. Depression, mental health issues, and other traumatic experiences as you mentioned, sadly, cause many people to see life as a continuing nonsensical challenge to survive. Raising awareness like your post is crucial for families, friends, and people struggling with the issue to notice and seek help.

  33. Alexandra Cook says:

    Life can be very difficult for some people. However, there’s always a reason for us to live even if it might be hard to see sometimes.

  34. I never knew what real depression and anxiety was until recently and it ca. Be very hard to manage.

  35. Sheree Ho says:

    Having empathy for others is very important. Great work.
    xo ~ Sheree

  36. I believe that empathy is very important as it makes us kinder and more understanding of other people.

    My reason to live everyday is just the fact that I’m a live, I’m thankful for everyday that I wake up and get to live life and spend it with my family and friends. 🙂

  37. Blair villanueva says:

    I am thankful and grateful for the nature for giving this opportunity to live. And it is my obligation to return the favor, by taking care of that life the nature gave to me, and never waste it.
