10 Hopeful Quotes For Anyone Who's Hanging On By A Thread

Quotes, Self

You are STRONG.

Everyone gets sad sometimes. But if you (or someone you love) is severely depressed, it's more than just sad. Sometimes people get to the point of not wanting to live.

Sadly, many people turn to suicide when they feel they have no other options, but if you or someone you know is at this point, it's time to get some outside help. Suicide is never the answer,  and we want to remind you that things really do get better — even when sometimes it's impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If you have contemplated — or survived — suicide, don't be ashamed.

You are not weak — you are STRONG.

And you WILL get through this. But sometimes getting a little help from someone that is not yourself is exactly the thing you need to keep on going, even when you don't feel the drive to anymore.

For immediate help, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 to speak to someone who knows exactly what you're going through.

Or if you have a loved one that's having a tough time, or if you need just a little boost yourself, we've collected a few suicide prevention quotes that we hope will remind you that this is not the end of the road, and that there are better, brighter, happier things ahead of you, all the time. 

If you're searching for the best quotes and memes to share with the people you love (or just want to feel inspired yourself) ... look no further! From the sweetest love quotesinspirational sayings, and hilarious friendship truths, we've got you covered.
