It’s okay to log off from the hate.

I’m aware of the news going around on Facebook and I know some of you may be triggered. If you are, and need the time and space to be offline, please do. I’m keeping away from FB myself.

Reach out to the people around you. You don’t have to go through the darkness alone.

The Samaritans of Singapore has a 24-hours helpline: 1800 221 4444.

I have this number saved in my phone.

If you are on the edge, please get help. Go to any A&E at the hospitals. You are not alone.

You are valuable and you are enough. I hope you’ll always choose life.

I encourage you to allow the space to be vulnerable, to take ownership and to respect the pain.

It has been 4 years since I actively considered suicide; I am stronger and better able to manage myself, and I still struggle every day with anxiety, depression and darkness. But this is what I have found: Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
You are not alone.

And for everyone, I hope we’ll all ask someone “How are you?” today, and to let the people we love know we love them. They need to know, and we need to let it be known.
