He wanted his cheating girlfriend to know his pain, so he dedicated his suicide letter to her.
Having borne witness to her infidelity, he wanted to hurt her the only way he knew how to — with eternal guilt.
What he didn’t expect was how hard it would be to commit the actual deed.
The poison didn’t work, nor did slitting his wrist.
At death’s door, his final step is interrupted by a phone call.
While his ex may have put him in this pit of misery, the call was a blessed reminder that he still had a lot of love to give.
Gently, he took off the noose. And learnt to live again.
