Why are you thinking about dying
If you haven't even tried to live your life?
Dear self,
You'll be okay.


As a sufferer of severe anxiety and depression, I just want everyone to know what I've learnt through personal experience:

Life is beautiful, it's precious, valuable and it's very taken for granted. It's true that our lives may suck, but we need to get up and realise that there's a brighter side to life. There's always something or someone worth living for, even if we haven't found it/them yet.

We need to believe that everyone deserves to be happy. We can all reach happiness, but it's something we need to earn.

SIDE NOTE:
I understand that some people might find this offensive, but just putting it out there: this isn't directed at everyone.

I mean, all life's don't always end with something. I'm not saying this is offensive, but it just gets on my nerves to know that people like you said take granted for life. Well I mean, their choice is to not nurture life but to hold it hostage till they find something good to use out of it. To all the people who do that, life comes in many forms and sometimes they're not just made you have to make the right decisions to understand the path you've took is actually negative. Nice free verse tbh ;)

This was very beautiful towards me because I know of a friend ((in real life)) who actually freaked me out because she had said that the same morning she had overdosed on pills. She had done it on purpose and she constantly cut herself. She once even wrote out in a restroom "Suicide note: Please help!" it freaked me out so badly. I still don't know how she is doing today, ((as it is summer)) but this helped me hope for her and let me feel a bit more secure about
her. I hope she will see life in this beautiful way that you did. *smiles*

((i have many friends who are vert, and i mean very suicidal, bordering on whether to live or die, and are trying (and, thankfully, failing) to persuade me to be like that. if you wouldnt mind, would it be ok if i used this quote to try and get me buddies to look at life with a brighter perspective? i wont take any credit for it, and it will be for the greater good...this quote really inspired me, and im sure it will do the same to others who actually need it...))

((Its not a matter of flattery, but a matter of truth. I am a very young person who desires to be an author, and when I read the things you write, it makes me raise the bar for what I think good litterature is. My only problem is, I've never actually written anything, since when I sit down to write, my mind goes blank, and when I do aquire ideas, they're downright horrible. But I guess that's the way it goes.))

Suicide is an option 
but not a good one
it's like someone asks what 2+2 is and your answer is fish
it is an answer but now a very good one
life is meant to be full of trials
you have to overcome them
once you do you'll come out stronger
but those are just my thoughts ^^
