September is marked as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and today, September 10, is World Suicide Prevention Day.
While only one person commits (or attempts) suicide, the ramifications are felt by all people connected to him/her. We have a lot of things to be thankful for but in a dire emotional moment, it often skips the mind. To remind us all, we’ve compiled 100 cute, funny and totally everyday reasons to live on and not give up because life does get better. While these reasons may sound a little frivolous, we’re sure it’s the small things that make life worth living. Besides, if you can’t appreciate the small things or laugh at the ridiculousness of life, you’re missing the best part of it. Remember, every life matters and we’re all here for a reason! Read on or show them to somebody in your life who might be in need of that little extra sunshine!
