Amanda had been suffering severe bullying, both personally and online, due to being taken advantage of and as a result….making a string of poor decisions…which lead to more severe bullying.
Amanda posted a video on YouTube telling her story.
Amanda included this description on her video:
I’m struggling to stay in this world, because everything just touches me so deeply. I’m not doing this for attention. I’m doing this to be an inspiration and to show that I can be strong. I did things to myself to make pain go away, because I’d rather hurt myself then someone else. Haters are haters but please don’t hate, although im sure I’ll get them. I hope I can show you guys that everyone has a story, and everyones future will be bright one day, you just gotta pull through. I’m still here aren’t I ?
According to a few sources, Amanda posted this video when she was 13 years old. A short 2 years later, Amanda succumbed to her suicidal feelings, no doubt due to the seemingly never ending barrage of insults and bullying.
Such a tragic story. One that is becoming far too common.
Toward the end of her video, she showed this card;
I have nobody, I need someone
If you or someone you know are being bullied, PLEASE talk to someone! Talk to us! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
