“Never give up on life, we have one life and make it what you want,” advised another.
Others shared their own experience of notes and messages left by kind-hearted strangers.
“A few years ago, when I was in an abusive relationship, I walked to the edge of a cliff and found ‘don’t jump’ painted on the edge of the cliff. It saved my life. I now have a wonderful supportive partner and a five-month-old daughter,” said one woman.
