    keep in mind, just because no one is around at this very moment, doesn't mean no one will be around forever.

    i've felt like i had no one when i really had plenty of friends.

    good luck though,
    i love you (because i heart everyone ((i don't believe in hate))  )

    Everyone has something to live for, whether they realize it or not. If someone doesn't have the support of others, then they simply must be their own support. Life is hard, but it can get better if you have the right perspective. Some people live, simply to live. I live because I have something that can never be completed. I believe life is meant to be lived to its' fullest and to me, knowledge is what we need. We have brains that are ultimately limitless, but so few try to fill their minds. Those who follow the path of knowledge will never be disappointed because there is always more to learn.

    My motto is, the more I learn, the less I do not know.

    Also, the more I learn, the less I realize I do know. It's endless. So, if you can find something that can never be completed, even the hardest of days can become bearable. Some people find knowledge in religion, others in science... do what makes you happy and your life is a life well lived.

    Aoriana you do have something to live for.  You may not know what that is right now, but you were created to fulfill a great purpose.  At this point and time you may be overwhelmed and it may seem like you have nowhere to go and no one to turn to but try to reach outside of those feelings and cling to the truth that you are here for a reason.  Tomorrow things will be just a little easier than they were today, and next week life will be easier than it is this week-just hold on and hold tight to the truth that you are special.

    Be the support for someone else who has nothing to live for. Look for a way to help them, find out what someone needs and see how it changes their life.

    You can consider that what you live for is to make your part of the world way better than it was before you for anyone who happens through it.

    Answer this : Isn't everyone here for a reason? :-)

    I have been there, more than once. I'm not entirely sure what pulled me through. I think it was the knowledge that I am not going to quit. That some how, for some reason I was still here. I believe everything happens for a reason. Whatever you are experiencing will make you stronger, wiser and more able to help someone else one day. You are here on hub pages, you are questioning, you exist, you are important, the rest will follow. As Winston Churchill said, "Never give up! Never give up! Never, never, never!"

    It doesn't have to be for much; little things suffice. When I'm miserable enough that death starts to seem attractive, then I think about obtainable things that make me happy.

    I think about the sound of the rain.
    I think about my favorite foods, prepared just the way I like them.
    I think about the films I'd still like to see, or the books I'd like to read, or the places I'd like to visit.
    I remember the faces of the people who love me, and who would miss me if I were dead.
    I think about the people or the person I'd like to touch, even if it was just one more time. One touch can lead to another.

    Those are the things that help me. I hope they helped you.
