I think Tumblr lessens suicidal rates all over the globe.
I didn’t think I was going to create a Tumblr account (because I thought it would be such a hassle) when the great KChan kept trying to convince me months ago–but I ended up making an account anyway last October just because I needed an outlet and I didn’t want people to have to deal with my emo, tantrums, and crap all the time. So yay, Tumblr! You save lives!
I was inspired to write this because earlier today, my sister, two cousins, Tita and mom witnessed a girl who committed suicide in EDSA near Guadalupe. My mom told me the body was literally just inches away from the van. She landed on her face first, and they could barely recognize her. It must have been so traumatizing for so many people, especially the ones who saw it happen.
I pray for that girl, and for everyone else thinking to do the same thing. Do us a favor and don’t do it. People care, and the world isn’t as apathetic as you think. Get Tumblr. You’ll see why it’s true.
