Hang in there

Discussing life and death. For different reasons. Death due to memories of a person that took his life. Life because a disease is threatening a close friend’s health, affecting his whole family. Not to speak of all others caring about him and his family. A healthy person forcing death onto himself, the other fighting for life. The irony of life. Or of death?

Even if life feels difficult, think of good reasons to hang in there. Your biological and extended or chosen family. Good friends. Your pet. Work. The pleasure of enjoying another sunny spring day. Of talking to someone you like. Of listening to your favorite song. Of dancing in the moonlight. 

Death, as far as I know, is a road without return. Leaving people on the way, people that care, people that will be hurting, people that will be grieving for the rest of their lives.

So why not grab the day, one hour at a time, one minute at a time. Small steps at a time. Be kind to yourself. Ask for help. Hug someone. Do something that makes you feel good. Hang in there!
