Every day is something different. Sometimes it's my family. Sometimes it's the good food I was blessed to eat. Sometimes it is being able to function like a normal human

Knowing that I survived grease burns and died 3 times. Also, completing one of my childhood dreams: Scuba diving. Got certified last Saturday.


Helpimabanana

Imagine dying and reincarnating as yourself at the exact same age you were before, not once but THREE different times. Pretty cool coincidence.


TJMULLIGANoCOM

What if the same person just reincarnated as every person that has ever lived and I am asking myself this question by way of asking Helpimabanana?

Glad to see someone else who worships RA or his ancient name Re! My girlfriend laughs when I tell her Ra is my God but I’m dead serious. I love watching that those videos that shows Earths scale to the Sun and then shows each star that is bigger and bigger…. You get the drift. Have a Sunny day my friend!


zxckery

My best friend, she has done wonders for me the past 12 years. Forever thankful. She literally has adored me in every phase / arc I have went through, & she listened to me every single time I needed it. Music & art, for inspiring me to chase my passion & career which I finally broke into. Breakfast food!!

About 2 1/2 years ago I had a terrible drug addiction,failed at school miserably, and probably couldn’t stand being with my family for over 20 minutes. Now I have a little over two years sober, A+ student, and seeing my mom not have to worry about me not waking up in the morning, being able to lay in her bed and cuddle with her, sitting down with my dad and having dinner like civil human beings, not being a burden to my brother


01Kronos

The knowledge that there is an end to my life.


Satans_Pilgrims

That one hit me. I can somehow manage and make something from nothing out of most days but if I really think about it, it’s because I know it’s numbered. No way I’d want to do this forever but knowing there’s an end somehow helps me appreciate things more and helps me keep going day to day. Might be kinda fucked up I don’t know but I just wanted to say I hear you. And that I saw a thicc butterfly today.

My friends and significant other. Without them I would not be here.


Gordleblorg

Really makes me wonder what I’m still doing on earth with nobody left except myself and Reddit to talk to every day


HatefulCommander

Reddit can be a great place to talk to people and find serotonin. Remember, there is someone out there that probably wants you to fail. Don't let them win, survive out of spite and outlive your enemies!


grassytoes

And I'd add; stay away from the shitty subs. So often I hear people IRL dump on reddit, and I'm like, what are you talking about, I get lots of good vibes and support from people on reddit. But then I remember that there are lots of dark places here too. One just has to curate properly.

Inven13

My dog. He's not a therapy dog or anything, he's not even from a sociable race and he's a racist asshole but I think I would be depressed without him.


MusicCuresMadness

How is your dog a racist asshole? Tell him that’s not okay.


Inven13

He has a thing against black people since he got to my house, he barks to anyone he doesn't know and who passes through my house but with black people he's specially aggressive, one time when he was just a puppy he managed to get out of the house and then he pursued a guy until one of my neighbors saw him and brought him back. I was told he almost bite the guy. The curious thing about this is that I'm black myself so if I'm teaching him something unconsciously is to be tolerant not racist.

Not being dead But in all reality all nature is beautiful. Just stop to enjoy it. It’s even present in metropolises if you look Also, just consider how UNBELIEVABLY unlikely it is that you exist. The universe is so fucking immense and old it is terrifying. Yet, you are here. Somehow. That’s more than enough for me


MHroshid

**I agree with you..**


Alice5878

Tbh not being dead is my reason. Death is just the most terrifying thing for me. Life ain't great but non existent is incomprehensible so living seems like a good thing. Also have you seen jellyfish? Life is beautiful.

I found out a few years ago that the purpose of my life was to love and be loved. It sounds so dumb and I don’t even tell most people because I sound like a quack but that is just what I’m here for. I’m good at making other people feel good and I like doing it (good at making others feel bad too, unfortunately). As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned it’s important for me to balance myself by not giving too much and receiving love too. Wow, I just reread that and it sounds so cheesy. But it can be that simple. It is for me and everyone that knows me thinks I’m complicated and particular. I am. But my purpose in life is simple.

Actually, if you spoke with many people who have had near-death experiences (which are really actual death experiences, they just came back) they will often say the same thing you just did.

Quinnalicious21

Being in the moment and aware of my surroundings, just taking the time to be grateful to be alive and to appreciate your day. Spending time with my friends and walking/driving back home and just being happy to be in a place where I'm accepted, being happy to laugh with these people and feel alive. Seeing beautiful views, thinking how gorgeous this world is. Every person here is unique in their own way and going about their lives, just trying to make a better tomorrow (for the most part.) We're all just on this planet functioning and going through our days together with is a nice thought in a way. All that shit just makes me glad to be alive and on earth at that moment


sam_francisco__

This is a thing?


FreshFondant

A red solo cup of my dad's famous sweet tea with lots of ice. Pensacola beach. When I get off the plane to be greeted by my daughter. A breezy sunny day with white puffy clouds and green grass. Pop Rocks. Expensive chocolate. My mom's homemade pizza. Thinking about the day my daughter was born and seeing her for the first time. Being so healthy after having gastric bypass and losing all that weight. The Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina. My ex-inlaws. (No, really!) Hearing my daughter being loving and kind to strangers at her job. And finally....antidepressants which made much of the above possible.

duffmandude

My wife. We have been together for 8 years, and honestly- I didn’t know what “love” was supposed to feel like, or what— love was to me, until I met her. She saved me and supported me to be the best version of myself. I am forever grateful and Lucky to be her partner, and hope she feels the same.


Arthur_collie

Nothing atm


rhi_ing231

Though it's becoming increasingly difficult for me, compassion keeps me here. All of my goals are about helping others whether I realize it in the moment or not. But realizing that even though I'm mentally unwell at the moment and I'm struggling and hurt and in pain and miserable and losing hope, I still volunteers I still learn, I still read, I still have fun for my baby sibling's sake. I still do all these things despite knowing I'll likely not be able to go into my field of choice career-wise realistically speaking. Despite having so much to offer in that field. Also, being afraid of dying.


Doomfox01

Discord roleplay. Yes it’s weird. Do I care? No


WaxwingRhapsody

My new car. I left an abusive marriage recently. He was tracking my vehicle with GPS and I just didn’t feel safe in it anymore especially as it was unique looking. So I bought myself a new car. She’s representative of the freedom and safety we now have.

MyHeroRemedy

Seeing the people I love smiling. Even if their life isn't perfect, hearing them laugh or seeing them smiling makes me feel glad I'm still alive to see them. Because even if they hold many dark secrets, there's still a moment that they shine brightly. And I hope one day, while they're in that moment, they'll realize they're worth more than they think.

I'm not depressed, so being happy to be alive is the default. My wife just got antidepressants after a really bad episode a couple weeks ago and she still can't believe that she's finally getting to feel what it's like to be me normally.


DaughterWifeMum

My kids, my hubsnerd, my small circle of family and friends. My cats. The books I have yet to read, or re-read. The media I have yet to watch, or re-watch. The hummingbirds that tease and flit about outside the sunporch. The booming thunder that precedes the pretty purple flashes across the sky. Petrichor. The bumblebees making busy with the lovely yellow dandelions. The very fact that I am alive. I am happy to report that I have successfully reached the age of 39, despite the odds. Despite the depression, suicidal ideations, anxiety and intrusive thoughts, I. Am. Still. Here. I am happy to be alive if only because I wanted so badly to be dead for so long.

My imagination


drainbamage826

Relaxing at my favorite spot at my favorite lake after a long, hott day of fishing and soaking in the water. Sun is going down...I got my folding chair set up in the shallows to cool off, fire lit on the shoreline behind me...the air is crisp and you can hear the bugs and birds chirping away. Just total peace. I try to do that at least twice a month in the summer months and every single time I do, I have an overwhelming feeling of appreciation that im still here kicking after everything ive been through.

CardiologistPure6504

I love that feeling when you wake up in the middle of the night and there's still time to sleep, and it's still dark, and you don't need to pee, and you aren't thirsty, and you can just roll over into your own warmth and fall back asleep with your face half in the pillow. That makes me 10/10 happy every single time.
