Formerly suicidal redditors, what's something that kept you alive a little while longer and helped you to get through the dark times in your lives ?

This notion seems to be unpopular nowadays, but I genuinely found religion or at least believing in a higher power and afterlife comforting. Even now, I suffer with this notion that everything I do is for nothing, but when I tell myself there’s something after I die, that the bonds I make with people and my dog will mean something in the end, it makes the desire to just leave everything behind a lot easier to suppress. Hanging on has shown me that even though this life feels meaningless and the world is going to shit, that people have and always will hurt me, there’s still something that I can live for in the people I do know that love me and I love, and eventually look forward to when we reunite after we all cross over
