Yeah but she didn't have to kill herself, life is about over coming obstacles. I guess it's natural selection working in progress. Only the strong survive.
I have to disagree with you there, kidda. There are more ways to feeling depressed instead of getting dumped, getting caught flashing or beaten up.
I've commented in the jobbers thread about my current dealings with it. I have no obstacles to overcome per-say yet I struggle sometimes. Maybe it's different in mine and her cases for example, I came right out and said I need help to the right people and got supported, she made a Youtube video but didn't tell anybody who couldn't ultimately do anything to help her. Thus resulting in her feeling like everybody was out to get her and gave up. I'm not aware if she mentioned how low she felt to the family so I could be mistaken there.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honour him and make whatever the man did live forever."
I think kids today really are meaner, more vicious for some reason. A lot of them seem to have incredibly low self-esteem, they will act like evil little cunts just to fit in and seem cool to their friends.

I agree with Walls here. Its sad but at the same time, life sucks, deal with it.

Every single one of us experienced hardships and teasing and "bullying" at one point or another at school it's part of growing up. As you grow up you just have to learn how to deal with it. You can't keep crying to mommy when the bad people are picking on you. If anything bullies do people a favour by toughening them up and preparing them for LIFE. You're gonna experience that shit at home, at work, school, everywhere. I've been through a lot of shit in my life but the thought never crossed my mind, not because of myself, but because of all the people that would be affected by my demise. I'm sorry but that's just selfish. RIP but she was the one that made the conscious decision to end her life. Nobody else.
I hate how now it seems the "go-to play" in a teens playbook when getting bullied these days is suicide and people are more and more accepting of it. It will eventually get to the point where kids will start to kill themselves because their parents took the Nintendo away. If you get pushed, push back. Now, if kids get pushed.. they crumble like a house cards and end it.
That being said I get that life long severe cases of depression and mental illness sometimes cannot be overcome because they are not temporary problems (rather, life long struggles), but as I understand it this is not one of those times
It also frustrates me how people honestly believe that bullying is this new epidemic sweeping over the world. Guess what? Bullying has ALWAYS been around, will ALWAYS be around, and everybody is a bully to somebody. Why do kids these days have almost non-existant coping ability?
