988 – New number to call or TEXT if you are having suicidal thoughts – 988. That’s it: 988. Please don’t commit suicide. The whole idea of the Cinderella story is that things get better with time. Wait until after midnight. Go to bed. Try to sleep. In the morning, you’ll be able to think more clearly and, at some point in the future, you’ll have an event that will make you so glad that you stuck around. Trust me. Been there. Done that.
