Depression is real, when someone makes a post about quitting, it doesn't really mean they intend doing it, they just need words of encouragement to get life going, yet some bluffs who hasn't experienced sh*t, doesn't know what it entails, so they make jokes outta it.

Life is not a party, you just don't leave when you stop having fun.
You should stay alive for those who loves you, because they need you in their lives.
RIP Dele💔 https://t.co/MInrmfwBhv

The person who completes suicide, dies once. Those left behind die a thousand deaths, trying to relive those terrible moments and understand… why?
