Life Vs Pain

If I were to sum up why people commit suicide to a single reason, it would simply be Life vs. Pain. What do I mean by this? Well, just imagine life as a balance. One one side you have life as a whole, including your dreams, your family, your job(s), etc. On the other side,…

Reason To Live
