AUSTRALIA — The Christmas card had already been ripped up in the decision not to deliver the message.

It was found on the train in Melbourne, Australia by Reddit user burritobattlefield. Out of curiosity, he/she put the pieces back together.

It reads:

“Have a happy Christmas. P.S. Stop drinking, get help from someone. Bad things happen to good people sometimes, but how you react to these things is what defines you. You always have a choice, there are better things ahead for you but its in your hands, its your responsibility.”

Some Reddit users questioned the validity of a note like that actually being left and found on a train.

Burritobattlefield posted a picture of their own handwriting to prove that the Christmas card wasn’t a fake.

“Yeah I did this is my handwriting to prove that it isn’t my handwriting in the card, I found the card on a train. The picture I linked here is a completely different piece of writing seperate (sic) from that christmas that was in my house.”

According to Mashable, if anything good came from the note, one Redditor offered their time.

“I would just like to say that if anyone ever needs someone to talk to, shoot me a line,” they wrote. “There seems to be some depression this time of year.”
