Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt HaigMatt Haig’s accessible and life-affirming memoir of his struggle with depression, and how his triumph over the illness taught him to live.
Destined to become a modern classic. —Entertainment Weekly
Like nearly one in five people, Matt Haig suffers from depression. Reasons to Stay Alive is Matt’s inspiring account of how, minute by minute and day by day, he overcame the disease with the help of reading, writing, and the love of his parents and his girlfriend (and now-wife), Andrea. And eventually, he learned to appreciate life all the more for it.
Everyone’s lives are touched by mental illness: if we do not suffer from it ourselves, then we have a friend or loved one who does. Matt’s frankness about his experiences is both inspiring to those who feel daunted by depression and illuminating to those who are mystified by it. Above all, his humor and encouragement never let us lose sight of hope. Speaking as his present self to his former self in the depths of depression, Matt is adamant that the oldest cliche is the truest—there is light at the end of the tunnel. He teaches us to celebrate the small joys and moments of peace that life brings, and reminds us that there are always reasons to stay alive.
120 Reasons Why I Love You So Much
Yes, receiving extravagant gift is awesome, but would it be nicer if you receive something really beautiful because it has a magic touch from the one you love? So on our first anniversary I gave my boyfriend this enormous jar full of words written in a colored post-it-notes shaped heart. I wanted to tell him that there are a lot of reasons why I chose to stay since the day I fell in love with him. The highlighted ones are my faves. The little girl is my adopted baby. I am the first person that comes in your mind when you see pink stuff. You never complain when I am having second, third millionth thoughts on buying something.
For my boyfriend's birthday, I came up with this list of why I love him. He loved it! A couple of weeks ago, it was my boyfriends birthday. I couldn't think of anything to write in his birthday card other than the usual "I love you," so I thought I'd tell him exactly how much I love him. I didn't intend to carry on for different points, but I got to 90 without realising—and then decided to continue to to make it more of a round number. He loved it and thought it was a really sweet thing to do.
And you better read them all, hee hee. I love you for the way you make me feel when I am with you. I love how we complete each others thoughts.
