There are so many instances that happen in your life making to want it to end it all! It might be a build up over a course of time, and of course, you have given a lot of chances to yourself, and others for just one more day to see if anyone cares. The series ‘Thirteen Reasons Why' speaks and shows what a normal teenager goes through in his/her life. May it be a boy or a girl, they both face different battles and try to outlive those horrors with a smile on their faces. It shows how talking about sensitive feelings or moments is so important, if you bottle up, you'll end up feeling alone. It is so hard to cope up with all these feelings of unwantedness, of being bullied, being abused even ignored, being not able to share what exactly is on your mind and in heart, but you have to give yourself the strength to make it out alive. Because yes, giving up might seem the only option left, as the suffering begins to be unbearable, as it suffocates you and every word feels like a target on you, but believe me, life isn't a constant endless pain but there's more to it if you give life a chance. You need to give yourself a CHANCE! So, to help you out in figuring what to think about while having thoughts of giving up, try and think about these following points, that might give you enough courage to live on.
1) Think of your parents
Do you think they brought you into this world to see you suffer? Absolutely not! You might think that they don't understand, and it might be true in many cases. Some things parents won't understand of our culture, or today's generation, but don't lose hope. Make them understand, because, in the end, they just want your well being. They will do anything to keep you happy, even when they don't understand, they will always be there for you.
2) Your squad
Confide in your friends. Don't be aloof, being alone will make you think about giving up again and again and again. It will worsen up things. Being with friends will make you realize what you'll be leaving behind. Being with people of your age and generation will help you share your feelings quite easily, as they truly understand. And mostly, when you reach out to people, you'll know that they care, and there are people who genuinely want to see you happy!
3) Think about a grenade
Ever seen how a grenade works? When they blow off they kill anything that is in its surrounding. When you give up, you'll be doing the same. You will be destroying not just your life but also the people around you. You may not realize this, but you leaving will leave such great impacts on others that they might never move on.

4) Ending life is hard, the aftermath is harder
Suicide is not the ANSWER! Giving up is not easy, and when you reach that point you will think of everything that made you reach that point, but think about why you should not take that final step. Why it should not be your final step, because once it's done there's no undoing it. And once you're gone, you can't change anything, nor your life or future or anyone around you. And that is more scary than anything else in the world.
5) What about your future?
Haven't you wished ever to do something great in your life? Something saved for future. Perhaps marrying or having your own family, maybe a career that you have put so many years preparing. Just think about how that will never be achieved by you if you give up today!
6) What about your family's future?
Your family's life will never be the same once you're gone. They might never move on. They might never figure out why you did what you did, and the guilt of not being able to help you might just kill them. They might stop living as well. How cruel is that?
7) Your dreams and goals?
If you're an artist, have you ever thought of going big? Being this famous singer or as Hannah wanted to be this writer and to live in New York. Don't give up on your dreams or goals, this phase is just a phase, it'll pass, not easily but once you make through it, you'll see how much worth it, it was!
8) You will be hurting your loved ones
Ever imagine what you'll be doing to your loved ones when they see you not around anymore. The pain you will be inflicting upon them. The horror of memories that will haunt them because of you, and how dead would they be knowing that they couldn't help you while you were in need. And that very thought will ruin their lives forever.

9) The pain is not forever
This won't last long, the pain eventually goes away. I'm not saying it'll happen overnight. You need to give yourself the time that is needed to heal. Just like falling off a bike, you get hurt, there's a wound that pains too, and as a child you think you can't take it anymore, but as your parents help you to get back, life will treat you well, and over a time, only a scar is left but no more pain. The scars may remain, the hurt you received from others, they may remain in your memories, but the pain will subside and if you focus on better things, you might just forget.
10) Life is not black or white, it's grey
The dark moments of your life is black and the happy one's white. But life can never be all black or all white, it's a mix of both! Some days are black and some days are white. So if you think your life is permanently black, YOU ARE WRONG, it never can be. Black days will pass and the white ones are on their way, you just need to hang on.
11) You are not worthless
Time after time, incidents after incidents you may be left thinking there's no worth of you left in this world, well that's not true. Everyone in this world, on this very planet exists for a reason. No one is worthless and no one has a right to make you feel that way. Don't let the cruel words get into you, you are bigger than this, higher than those foul words that are pulling you down. You need to believe in yourself that your life has a purpose and it won't be fulfilled if you give up today.
12) Believe there's more to life than this
The things that hurt you, the people or their actions, they seem like everything as of now, as if it is indeed the end of the world, but those people or moments are nothing. There's so much to life than you believe. You just need to work a bit and to keep your belief strong.
13) Because we need you
You are needed, you are loved and we want you to be happy. You are not alone in this, there are people who love you so much, you just need to look the right way, reach out to people so that they can show how much they care about you. You don't have to fight your battles alone. We can do this together, you just need to keep your head high, ignore the hate or the black days and look forward to the white ones where you achieve what you have dreamt of all your life. Just believe you can do anything and trust me you will lead a great life!
Reach out, guys! There are people who still love you and no love is enough. We've got some reasons why to, but many reasons why not to! It's time to give life and everyone a chance, and why not?
