Reasons you DON'T want to die, whether deliberately or not...

Hello

I am currently working on a suicide prevention/crisis plan. One of the questions are 'what are your reasons for living', I really have no idea and can't think of any and have said this to my worker.

I wondered what other ASD/AS people's answer would be to this.

If you can, a sentence or two written would be welcome.

Thanks

  • There are many positive things about life, but I know first hand that "count your blessings" is rarely helpful advice. At the moment I'm often finding myself saying "I'm happy, or at least content, but I rarely *feel* happy". Anyway, I'll list the positives that come to my mind:

    • The love I share with my wife.
    • Blackbirds singing after rain.
    • Petrichor
    • Coffee
    • Chocolate
    • Sunsets
    • Sunrises
    • Waking up excited about your hobby
    • Curry
    • Wagamammas
    • Music
    • Learning stuff
    • Going to be tired & sleeping well
    • Cycling gently on a balmy summer evening
    • Running
