'Now I've 4-month old son' – Man thanks Twitter user who advised him against suicide

A young man who would have died about four years ago has expressed gratitude to a strange Twitter user who talked him out of committing suicide.


The man is now a father of a 4-month old boy, and he has realised the damage he would have caused if he had carried through with his suicidal mission.

A Nigerian Twitter user identified as @max_sticks took to the microblogging platform to share with his followers the awe-inspiring message he had received from the stranger who was full of appreciation for him.

The man recounted being suicidal about three to four years ago, but @max_sticks convinced him not to take his life.


@max_sticks shared screenshots of the conversation between him and the stranger who tried to remind him of himself, but he could not recollect ever helping any such person.

Despite not remembering him, @max_sticks was very happy to have been a vessel used by God to save the life of a stranger who, for reasons known to him alone, was about to end his life.

"This literally made my day ❤️❤️ I’m so happy," @max_sticks wrote on Twitter to caption the screenshots of his conversation with the grateful stranger.

His tweet got his followers reacting with many of them commending him for saving the suicidal stranger.
