    I never thought a suicide would come in my life

    and shake it so. I never believed her, I thought she just wanted attention. She had everything. I thought it was a phase. I thought someone else would help her. NEVER doubt any indication of suicidal thoughts. NEVER, you can make a difference by not ignoring signs.

    Suicide doesnt just mean killing yourself,

    it also means ending the chances of life ever getting better for yourself. People out there care about you, whether theyre right next to you or hundreds or thousands of miles away. Somewhere, someone cares about you. Pain is temporary. Stay Strong and Don't Give Up <3
