Please, please don’t do it! Whether you know it or not, you have touched lives that will be sadder and worse off without you. I have had depression since childhood and have wished to kill myself many times - but my young cousin actually went through with it, and our family will never be the same. Please choose to stay alive, even for the sake of finding something you can like a little bit for even one moment - the sound of a bird, the color of a leaf or a candle flame, the taste of a sweet - just one thing to hold on to, until you can find the next thing.
