While love is often something celebrated, it can also drive people to do things they normally wouldn’t do. And although it doesn’t happen often, love can end in tragedy, as this Malaysian man found.
Zhong Zhenwen (钟振文) broke up with his girlfriend a month ago. However, it was still weighing heavily on him and in a fit of despair, he took his own life yesterday (8th September).
The 22 year-old worked as an electrical salesperson. According to reports, Zhong left his house at 2pm on 7th September in a white Myvi. He left alone and his family lost contact with him after. The next day, his grandmother found a suicide note in his room. She quickly called his parents and other relatives to help find him.
While they searched, the family exhausted every other way of finding him. They reported the matter to the police and posted photos of him on social media in hopes someone would have seen him. Unfortunately, they were too late. At 1:30pm, his family received news that his body was found.
According to the note found, Zhong stated he could not handle his feelings anymore and apologised profusely. He was still in love with his ex-girlfriend and was struggling to handle his breakup.
Stories of old may paint tragic love stories as something to cherish, but nothing is worth more than your life. We hope that if you’re struggling with anything that you will reach out. Be it a friend, family member or even a stranger, talking to someone will help.
