  • This too shall pass...
  • To prove to him it could be done
  • Knowing the good times will come and i dont wanna miss out on any moments. i feel like you grow from the bad moments in life.. makes you stronger.. and when the good times come...they seem greater
  • Bills to pay, plus the lack of a viable alternative...
  • My meds. Without them, I am not good.
  • Even when I hit the emotional rock bottom, and feel absolutely horrible, I always have at least one Friend.
  • Among other things, the fact that whatever alternative there is, it'll always be there. I won't lose my chance to die if I choose to keep upright, but I will (as far as I know) lose my chance to stay alive if I choose to die.
  • Finding things that interest me. Love - Of my parents, my wife, my kids, my friends Staying positive - Things always have, and always will Work out the right way. Probably a lot of other stuff. Not necessarily in that order, of course.
  • Giving up is illogical, therefore, not an option.
  • Because everything that is interesting lies ahead, not in the past. It's not my nature to throw in the towel, give up, back away. The choice is either life or death/stagnation..I choose life and that means slogging through it even when it's tough! :) ((hugs))
  • honestly, since I have started doing AB it's helped me a lot. I can't wait to log on and read the questions and see who I might be able to help today. If I can help one person today or cheer up one person who is sad or depressed then I have served my purpose to get up today. This morning was one of those mornings that I did NOT want to get out of bed at all. I was depressed and sad. i didn't want to get dressed or even wake up. I had a bad day. I got back and sit down and started reading my answers I had given the last few days to some people and I realized that surely I had helped one person ..at least 1 feel better even a little bit.. so that made today worth getting up for. I always try to go on because I try to remember that someone out there knows EXACTLY what I feel and somebody probably here on AB will be experiencing depression or domestic abuse or whatever that I have gone thru and maybe something I can say will help. I used to think that nobody knew how I felt until I came to AB and I realized just how wrong I was and how very much alike so many people I am. (sorry for the rant)
  • it is the hope that motivates me to keep rowing the boat come what may.
  • Hope for a better tomorrow
  • because I never give up and till the final battle is not fought it is not over. Its over only when you close your eyes for the last and final time never before that.
  • roses. the beauty and strength to stand blooming even on a rainy day. nothing like a rose garden to sit in.
  • Used to be my boys. My son's face got me through my boot camp runs! Then when he was 18 my grandson needed me. When neither of them needed me anymore I had to learn that there are other people in the world who needed my help as well and that it wasn't time to die at least not yet.
