I know how life can be cruel and I'm glad that despite that, you still want to live. It's not easy to live. You might need to contemplate about your own reasons to live, your goals, your dreams and what future holds for you. You can also think about the support system you have, the people who have been there for you when things get rough. And always remember that life gets better, there will come a time that life will be kinder to you.

Life is like a water stream that stops sometimes and that is when we feel we want to give up. Life does not wait for anyone and neither should you, what I mean to say is that, there will come a time when the stream pushes through, paving a way, discovering new territory and bringing life to everything it touches. You will be that stream if you just hold one because you are important and you are here on earth for a reason, and yes it is true, good things, actually magical things happen to those who go to hell and come back.

It would be extremely helpful to know why you are deciding to give up on life, except we don't so here are just a few suggestions that might help. First is find meaning, make a list of goals, things you want to accomplish. List out how and why you want to achieve these goals. You need to have something to work towards, and don't solely focus on fulfilling just one thing keep yourself interested in many different things. You want to live, you just don't want to be stuck where you currently are. So once you have your goals start changing your life. Form good stable habits, start working yourself to the best possible state you can be to achieve your first goal. Then keep going, don't give up on life when you want to live. You just have to take steps forward so that you are in a better place than you were. Experience some contrast in your life, either by comparing yourself now to your past, traveling or whatever helps you see a change in your current state. Next work on your social connections, find people you can trust and truly trust. Being able to talk to people and have them listen can be extremely impactful, and help your process of change. It will help your life mean something to you because you will have a responsibility to others. Humans are social creatures if you want some help in your life talk to people, anyone who is willing to listen. Be honest and truthful, don't use people just to try and get a rise out of them, and you will find a much more meaningful connection if you open up. Make sure that the friends you find want the best for you, as it will help in your growth. Don't be lazy and wallow in your despair, pull yourself out of it and do something to make your life have a purpose so that when you die you can look back and say "I did something good". If you have regrets fix them or find ways to solve them, any hangups toward anyone or thing find a way to deal with or fix them. I wish I knew your situation because more details always help. I hope this was helpful!

Talk! Talk! Talk! There is no shame in feeling the way you do but additionally there is no shame in asking for help and support. There is so much support out there and every single person in this world deserves it. Whether this be support from doctors, therapists, support groups where you will meet people experiencing similar feelings, self help books etc. There is a wealth of information and support out there, you just need to ask! Also speak with those around you. Your family and friends would want you to talk to them. I am sure you would help them if they were in your shoes.
