Nasanay na ang mga follower ni Paulo Avelino sa mga malalandi, mahaharot niyang tweet. Aliw na aliw nga ang mga fan niya kapag pinapatulan niya ang mga ‘panghaharot’ nila.
Pero kahapon, ibang Paulo ang nakita nila sa Twitter. Ibang-iba ang mga tweet ni Paulo, at may kinalaman ‘yon sa pagpapakamatay.
Heto nga ang tweet ni Paulo:
“A THREAD TO LET LOOSE THOUGHTS]
“I’ll let this out to the universe since I promised not to keep heavy feelings to myself. One of my closest friend committed suicide last year and no one saw it coming.
“He was my go to person.
“A lot of times, I would call him late in the evening feeling so low and he would travel miles just to keep me company and make sure I was in my right mental state of mind to continue one with life, constantly reminding me how privileged I am compared to a lot of people.
“That I had to see my son grow up.
“A few years back I tried (attempted) committing suicide. I survived. No one really knew aside from my closest friends and he was one of them.
“He would switch shifts with a friend to stay with me in the hospital and even when I got discharged, just to make sure I wasn’t stupid enough to do it again. Then it happened.
“All the time I needed support from my friends they were there. I was selfish. I demanded time and a part of their emotional state to flow along with mine.
“I SAW IT COMING. That one message you sent the night before you passed away, I brushed off in a joking manner.
“All those messages and time I selfishly demanded are now regrets and baggage I would carry my whole life.
“THANK YOU! I HOPE YOU ARE RESTING PEACEFULLY. I am living because of the hope and wisdom you engraved in me.
“A year after here I am at 5 in the morning thinking if a few minutes of my time ditching work would make a change OR EVEN SAVE A LIFE.”
Sunod-sunod nga ang magagandang mensahe kay Paulo mula sa kanyang mga fan, na nagsasabing mahal na mahal nila siya.
Quin Lagatiera: “Heneral, it is ok if you feel that way, if you feel sad, tired, regretful, you need to feel it, feel the sadness, the regret, it is ok.
“There is no use diverting your feelings, coz if u do, u’ll end up having superficial happiness but deep inside you still feel the void, you need to acknowledge those feelings to get over it.
“Always remember to get over the sad, the regret, the tired, do it in your own pacing, u might be doing it real slow and that is ok. FEEL IT, ACKNOWLEDGE IT, BUT YOU DONOTE DROWN IN IT.”
Mikee: “Please know na maraming nagmamahal sayo.”
mamae: “So Heneral, you are in your righteous place. BELIEVE. 🙂 Goodmorning!”
Pami Pamz: “I am sorry to hear about your friend. May he rest in peace.
Nangyayari talaga sa atin ang ganyang stage sa buhay natin pau, yung tipong nasa hangganan ka na para sumuko. Pero kapit lang, huwag kang patatalo.
Lilipas din yan. Pagod kana nga siguro, pero wag mong sukuan. GBU!”
Anyway, ang dasal nga ang mabisang panlaban sa kung ano man ang kalungkutan na nararamdaman ng isang tao. (Dondon Sermino)
