Re: Amanda Todd bullied into killng herself
While I do feel sorry for the girl, the ones who I really feel sorry for are her family. She brought the whole situation entirely on herself via youthful indisrecion, which is to be expected at that kind of age, and not believing there to be consequences for it. People are quick to announce their pity and sympathy for the kids like this who kill themselves over some humiliation, but these kids don't seem to give a shit about their families and loved ones who really care about them, not being concerned for the devestating effects it would have on these people. I mean, you just throw away your life without a word of warning to your loved ones and in the process completely ruin their lives as well?
What I don't get is why people would do something so severe when there are always alternatives to deal with bullying. How about, like, talking to your family or friends (or if you don't have any, a counsellor or something) about it and ask them or someone else you trust for advice on how do deal with your problems? Hell, there's gonna be at least one person you know who has been bullied in the past and turned out fine. The bullies are obvious pieces of shit, but at the end of the day, the kid that killed him/herself is the one who willingly brought monumental grief and heartache upon their family by being so short-sighted that they took their own lives over an issue that in all likelihood could have been resolved and moved on from.
I understand how bad bullying can be and how hurt the victim feels because of it, so in that regard I sympathise with kids like this girl. But at the same time, these kids can also get fucked for being selfish assholes and committing suicide, which without a shadow of a doubt, hurt the families and friends much more than the bullies ever did.
