57 Things To Do Instead Of killing Yourself

Early this morning when i woke up from one of my wildest dreams, i realized that i forgot to turn off my tv last night. it was still on the same channel. it was like the cnn reporter was actually on my dream. she was delivering her spiel (if that's what you call it) about this guy who tried to kill himself but unsuccessful. and then i switched to a local news channel. -a broken hearted guy jumped off the MRT track as the train approaching. and guess what happened, he survived. if my mind is serving me right, it would be the second of such incident. and then i thought, jumping off MRT tracks, has it become a trend? i wonder what preoccupies the minds of these people.

and so i was surfing the net, stumbling and came across this list of things that one can actually engaged in instead of trying to kill themselves. some of these may be nonsense but there's one thing that this list is trying to convey. i just hope people will realize that.

This obviously wasn't written by someone who understands what it's like to want to kill yourself. Its not a joke and all the things on this list make it out to be.
