Today is World Suicide Prevention Day
. In Singapore, suicide is one of the top three causes of death among youth aged 15 to 35 years.
Some of you may remember having watched my live webcast of someone wanting to jump down from the flat opposite mine a few weeks ago. I guess the thought of committing suicide must have occurred to most people at least once in their life. (I may be wrong though)
I can be frank here, I did something along the line... I remember when I was a small kid, I dunno what happened I was sick and tired of living, then I decided to pinch my nose so that I couldn't breathe and hoping to suffocate. Then I ran out of breath and released my nose, took deep breath, then continue to hold my breath. Pretty silly huh? Then a few years back I climbed halfway up the rockclimbing wall without wearing harness.. can't remember if that was suicidal or not though =P Then slightly more recent I was taking painkiller as sleeping pill... (ok hush hush k?) I still think of funny ideas of committing suicide, such as flushing myself down the toilet bowl and stuff... ok that's impossible.
The point is, you can jump track and jam up the the whole MRT network (talking about "acting responsibly", duh!), but the problem isn't solved. If you are feeling down, go and read crappy blogs, write crappy blog, just do something to divert your attention away from your problem. But at the end of the day, blogging things like which girl you hate or which girl you like or which girl doesn't like you just doesn't solve the problem. You have to tackle the problem by facing the problem. (the girl isn't the problem, well most of the time not. But you still have to go face her)
The reason why I'm still breathing is because I still have stuffs not done. =P
