I’ve been advised that i need to be selfish with my time and focus on myself and those people are right, except that ….

Being extraordinary means doing extra ordinary things.

R U OK exists because an ordinary 16 year old man Jamie, asked an ordinary man about to jump off a bridge, an ordinary question … “Are you OK?” An extraordinary campaign was launched that saves people’s lives. Ironically, the people who advised me to be selfish are people I’ve helped. I guarantee if I hadn’t helped them, they would not be OK!

Why do I help? Because I will never be that person who questions what they could’ve done and said differently to a person who successfully commits suicide. Thus, I will continue to be accused of “being extra” ordinary.
