I SWEAR ANON, IF THIS GIRL TAKES HER LIFE BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU SAID I’M GONNA—- I WISH I COULD DO SOMETHING, YOU KNOW?! I REALLY DO. BUT I ADMITTEDLY CAN’T…
I feel powerless online sometimes because you can’t stop someone directly. It would have been a lot easier.
ANON, WHAT YOU SAID IS NOT OKAY. YOU DON’T DO THAT. SHE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO FEEL DOWN AND WANT ATTENTION RIGHT NOW.
When you’re lonely and depressed or in pain, you tend to crave attention. It’s natural. Because you only want to feel loved. And there are people out there who are willing to give it even if they are complete and total strangers. Even if people love you, they sometimes forget to show it. And some are too blind to see.
No one is a screw up. They just need a little enlightenment, a light to guide them out of the dark if you wish. And a hand to hold them, staying with them all the way until they make it out together.
Don’t play the bully or the psych/shrink. Don’t make her feel guilty.
Anon, you didn’t have to make her feel bad in that way.
