Everything You Will Miss If You Commit Suicide

The world needs you.

You won't see the sunrise or have your favorite breakfast in the morning.

Instead, your family will mourn the sunrise because it means another day without you.

You will never stay up late talking to your friends or have a bonfire on a summer night.

You won't laugh until you cry again, or dance around and be silly.

You won't go on another adventure. You won't drive around under the moonlight and stars.

They'll miss you. They'll cry.

You won't fight with your siblings only to make up minutes later and laugh about it.

You won't get to interrogate your sister's fiancé when the time comes.

You won't be there to wipe away your mother's tears when she finds out that you're gone.

You won't be able to hug the ones that love you while they're waiting to wake up from the nightmare that had become their reality.

You won't be at your grandparents funeral, speaking about the good things they did in their life.

Instead, they will be at yours.

You won't find your purpose in life, the love of your life, get married or raise a family.

You won't celebrate another Christmas, Easter or birthday.

You won't turn another year older.

You will never see the places you've always dreamed of seeing.

You will not allow yourself the opportunity to get help.

This will be the last sunset you see.

You'll never see the sky change from a bright blue to purples, pinks, oranges, and yellows meshing together over the landscape again.

If the light has left your eyes and all you see is the darkness, know that it can get better. Let yourself get better.

This is what you will miss if you leave the world today.

This is who will care about you when you are gone.

You can change lives. But I hope it's not at the expense of yours.

We care. People care.

Don't let today be the end.

You don't have to live forever sad. You can be happy. It's not wrong to ask for help.

Thank you for staying. Thank you for fighting.

Suicide is a real problem that no one wants to talk about. I'm sure you're no different. But we need to talk about it. There is no difference between being suicidal and committing suicide. If someone tells you they want to kill themselves, do not think they won't do it. Do not just tell them, “Oh you'll be fine." Because when they aren't, you will wonder what you could have done to help. Sit with them however long you need to and tell them it will get better. Talk to them about their problems and tell them there is help. Be the help. Get them assistance. Remind them of all the things they will miss in life.

If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline — 1-800-273-8255

Don't Rely On Others For Happiness, You're Your Own Best Friend

It's scary to be alone, but it's worth it once you realize your worth.


I hear the stories of ugly breakups, sweet revenge and crushing defeats far too often. A person does all that they could do in that relationship, and it just falls through anyways. Sure, I have been in those situations a couple of times. But that doesn't mean it's going to put me down.

Sometimes, you may not get the closure that you need when things end. To be blunt, you just need to move on. Eventually, you will reason out why things ended the way they did, and then there will a burden that is lifted from your shoulders.

Of course, you can try to seek the closure you want. A little scenario will play out in your head and you may try your hardest to have things go the way you expect them. It all falls apart when the person completely ignores you.

One thing is certain: ostracism is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. As human beings, we depend on the help of people we feel close to. Totally rejecting someone and ignoring them is like giving them a death sentence. I'm sure we have all been in this sort of position before and it's not the best feeling.

It really is quite depressing and it's quite unfortunate that people can become insensitive to these sort of things. It's even worse when people do it on purpose.

If you did all you could do with the respect you gave graciously, and nothing is happening, then you don't earn that person anything. As I put it, you drop them like a hot pocket and continue with your life.

It would be a waste of energy to press matters further if you keep on looking for the answer that you seek. Sometimes the answer is that it what it is and you will have to accept it in that form.

If the person that ignored you reached out to you by asking how you are doing, weeks or months later after you have moved on, you should remind yourself that you don't own them anything. You could ostracize them. But in this scenario, it is not cruel.

Own it! You are free to make your own choices and live as you please. In the end, you are your own best friend and should not feel like you are missing out when someone is disrespectful to you.

Simply know your worth. Don't lower your standards when you're feeling low, don't feel as though you owe someone something after they ignored your existence, instead, stand up tall and be confident in yourself. Because in the end, you don't need them.
