Sadly someone jumped off the Verrazano Bridge yesterday. He survived the 228 foot fall and is currently listed in critical condition. 

According to a landmark study called “Where are they now?” of attempted suicides at the Golden Gate Bridge: 

  • Only 6% of people talked down from a jump went on to kill themselves
  • According to the study’s author, “90 percent of them were having an acute temporary crisis; they passed through it and, coming out the other side, they got on with their lives.”
Hang in there. Life, at times, is so damn hard. But it’s just temporary because it always, always, always gets better. See tumblr’s resources for more info.
