Myths are fairytales we make up when the truth may not appear as interesting. They exist because we create them and we share them with the world. But suicide is never an issue anyone should falsify or take lightly. If you or someone you know feels like they’re at their breaking point and don’t know where to turn, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
