Did you know that over 276,000 teens commit suicide a year, yeah, it's that bad. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15 - 24 year olds. It is mostly because of stress, pressure, wanting the pain to stop, or if they are in intense pain. Twenty-four percent of high school students have seriously thought about attempting suicide. For every older teen and young adult who takes his or her own life, 100-200 of their peers attempts suicide.
I am here writing this to ask you not to even think about attempting suicide. Just keep trying. Don't ever give up. Once you give up, it's hard to get back up. Below I will include a suicide website to help whoever needs it. Please, in the long run staying non-suicidal will help you out. Good things happen to good people, so don't commit suicide.
