I Am Alive Because I Love My Parents

I am alive because I love my parents.
I don’t want to break their heart by ceasing to live.
But I can’t stand my reality.
My body, my life, my lack of purpose..
The emptiness, the loneliness, the unresolved issues and emotions.

I may also be alive because I harbor hope that at some point my life will be good,
But I don’t do anything towards that goal so…
I am alive because I love my parents.

    I felt like that once. Truly. I couldn’t end my life because I knew it would hurt my parents but I felt like I had nothing to live for, and I also hated my body and so much more. Life did get better. Much, much better. Hang in there. Sometimes it’s impossible to imagine how things can turn around, but they do. I hope they will for you, soon.
