Yes. I really did just spend 3 hours writing and thinking 100 reasons to live. I've been going threw emotional stuff lately, explains why I haven't posted much art, and I wanted to take a bit and make a list of reasons why we should live. In the mean time, while I was writing, I gained more confidence and felt a whole lot better. I hope some of you read threw them all, and I really hope I gave someone out there at least one reason to live.
