Day 25 - 30 Days of Truth

Day 25 - The reason you believe you're still alive today.

Because my parents taught me not to play in the street as a child? Because I don't run with knives or scissors? Because I know better than to wear a plastic bag over my head because it tells me not to?

Seriously what kind of question is this???? It is incredibly ridiculous and to be honest morbid. I honestly would like to think if I became anywhere near suicidal that someone in my family would love me enough to get me the help that I would need. As someone who's family has been affected by suicide, I can not think of another way to wound another so deeply.

I know I get down on myself when things are looking rough but it's never looked desolate. It's never looked so bad that there aren't any other options. And beyond that I have so many, many wonderful things in my life. There are so many thing that I haven't done that I want to.

So I guess my real answer is...because my life, no matter that there are hard times; no matter how dark it looks; no matter how frustrated I get; is worth living.

Random Fact: Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, was afraid of the dark.
