Life is fragile.
The past week has been a sorrowful one for a dear friend. Her daughter's ex-boyfriend took his own life. He was 25 years old. They had just broken up. He was stressed by work. What was the trigger? Who knows? I can't imagine how his parents are feeling.
Last year, the daughter of another dear friend also took her own life. 16 years old. What drives these young people to such drastic extremes? Are the stressors so insurmountable that they felt that suicide was the only way out? I hear that suicide amongst the young has been on the rise in Singapore. If true, why?
So so sad.
