What Were You Made For? September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day is quickly approaching on September 10th. Each year, To Write Love On Her Arms runs a campaign to boost conversations around suicide prevention. This year, their campaign slogan is “Stay. Find out what you were made for.” This is a slogan I can relate to quite a bit. When I hit rock bottom, I didn’t feel like I had a purpose. Not feeling like I had a purpose turned into feelings of utter worthlessness. Not knowing why I was on this planet was stressful. I know I’m not alone- Avenue Q had a whole musical number about it!┬áSearching for your purpose is agonizing.

I wish I could tell you that there’s an easy way to figure out what you specifically were made for, but I don’t have a strategy for that. However, I am confident that every single person on this planet has a reason for being here. Everyone has something about them that makes them valuable. Sometimes, it’s just hard to see it. That’s why I compiled a list of things that give people purpose. I hope some of these statements resonate with you!
