19-year-old girl committed suicide because she didn't get enough Instagram likes
The headline may be a bit of a stretch, but her entire self-esteem was tied into social media. When that couldn't take away her problems, she committed suicide.

Quote:A teenage girl who killed herself just before Christmas was "obsessed" with social media and thought she "wasn't good enough unless she was getting likes", her devastated family says.

Chloe Davidson, 19, was found dead at her family home in County Durham on December 20.

Her sister Jade, 20, said Chloe struggled with anxiety and low self-esteem, and relied on social media for reassurance.

"Chloe was the type of person who, if she put a picture on Facebook, would ask the whole family to like her picture or would sit with me and ask which one I thought was the best before she would post it," she told The Sun Online.

"She thought she wasn't good enough unless she was getting likes and comments. If she didn't get enough likes, she didn't feel accepted."

Jade, who had her first child just weeks before Chloe's death, said her sister was often targeted by online trolls who would send her nasty messages.

"I sat with Chloe many nights when she was crying because someone had said something horrible," Jade added.

"Chloe didn't see what we saw. She was so beautiful inside and out and would have done absolutely anything for me, her baby niece and the rest of her family."

Chloe wanted to be a carer, but Jade said once she started using social media "all she would talk about was how many likes she got".

"Chloe was beautiful, but she didn't see that," she told the Newcastle Chronicle.

"She cared so much about how people saw her. She would post a picture on social media and want all her family to like it. If it wasn't good enough she'd remove it."

I think things are starting to get better, remember a couple of years ago people were killing themselves on FB for attention. Things like this are getting rarer and rarer it seems.


Still a sad sad story.

20 years ago she would have slept around a bit and then by age 30 married some guy who was happy to have her.

20 years before that she would have had a couple of partners at most before getting pregnant and married at a young age.

20 years before that she would have been more or less paired with a male 8 and (subtly) enjoyed the life long envy of most every woman she ever met.

Sad.

I think they see these kind of reality show "star" C-celebrity influencers with lots of followers and other low life thots who show their ass off and then pretty normal girls wonder why they don't get as many likes.

But ultimately I think it comes down parents not bringing their daughters out to develop some other skills in other areas besides looks, so the only thing they rely their whole worth and self-esteem on in life is their appearance. If I had a daughter I would raise her in a way so she became an independent thinker, didn't follow the herd and took self-esteem from being a virtous person as well as some more superficial stuff like being a great cook, good with kids and ice skating or some shit like that.

Most parents don't sit down and have deeper conversations about values, about what is important in life etc so their kids so they fall into this bubble where likes matters.

This.
I'm a broken record at this point, but in an age where media, academia, and the culture at large are all toxic, parents are the last line of defense.
And they're failing horribly.

I know liberal women in particular are very insecure for some bizarre reason. It's so ridiculous. Then everyone walks on eggshells to not trigger them or make them feel bad about themselves. I understand that bullying is bad, but even relatively innocuous things become "society's unrealistic standards" or similar. You don't have to follow those standards if you don't like them!

If they loved themselves unconditionally, like God does, then I wouldn't have to constantly hold my tongue around them...

Granted being a parent in Sodom or Gomorrah these days is basically like being forced to play a game on ultra hard mode.

Solution. Don't chase the Jones'.

One glance at the cost of a small house in rural wherever will light the path forward.

You are better off commuting an hour each way than putting your children in the belly of the beast while feeding the banking cartels.

Anyone that lives rural will tell you that for every problem in the city you notice, there are nine more you're not even aware of until you actually feel their absence. Moreover the city magnifies problems that are otherwise benign in the sticks. Out here kids using social media isn't even that big a deal because there is less churn and therefore less drama. Likewise there is little to no anonymity so behaviour is much more moderated.

Neither is anybody out here fapping to the latest Star Wars movie nor to its demise. The viruses concocted to destroy the populace work poorly out here or not at all.

Godlessness the ultimate cause. Damnation guaranteed by suicide.

This is so sad and unnecessary.

Hence why sharing the gospel is like helping to pull a burning stick out of the fire.

^ Correct. If any of these people understood God they would understand suicide is a no bueno. They don't believe in God, in the sanctity of life, in anything of moral boundaries unless it conflicts with their ego getting its way. I will pray for her and for all others who are considering such foolish thoughts. This act is the only thing other than rebuking the Holy Spirit to me that separates the wheat from the tares, so many who sin out there can redeem themselves if they just understood the universe and what we are instead of gobbling up mainstream destiny-less pseudo-science.

You can't cheat nature.

@MusicforthePiano

Personally I think its too late for her. However I do agree we need to pray for those like her.

Ask and we shall receive. Blow the silver trumpets and God will act.

Still a sad sad story.

It still happens, it is just FB bots are quick to filter and scrub/ban the content. It isn't like less people are committing suicide as the data suggests there is still an increase.

This social media stuff is just as addictive for teen girls.

The problem is more fundamental than that.

Community in America has ceased to meaningfully exist, basically at all.

Absent a wholesome community where this girl can transition from attractive single woman to beautiful wife and mother, surrounded by lifelong friends and family bound by life affirming shared values, she is merely a piece of ass, at best. The alternative is that she is a liability on a corporate or governmental spreadsheet. In a world like that, the sane people are the ones who oftentimes cannot handle it.

The normal, healthy socialization children and their parents should be getting in a functional community, where healthy social norms are constantly reinforced (since everyone in said community has a stake in it remaining nice and functional), is entirely absent. This is what is causing so many of the crazy and dysfunctional behaviors we witness on a broad scale today.

What fills the gap when organic human interactions are removed? What can possibly fill that void? Nothing.

People desperately try with porn, food, social media likes, opioids, etc, but it doesn't work, does it?

Social media isn't actually causing these problems, it is merely an outlet which amplifies and projects them.

That's sad, someone around her should have reached out and intervened. Not blaming anyone, but our communities are weak and it's a sad state of affairs.

Her response woulda been "beta male don't tell ME what to do!".
What she needed was a father 19 years ago.

Was she from a single mother household?

You can control social media culture with a healthy family environment, those who don't have that will be the most vulnerable.

A 1 hour commute from the city (in Australia at least) still puts you in the metro sprawl, and depending on where you are, most likely amongst undesirable elements (moreso than the city).

Studies have also shown that long commutes are detrimental on familial relationships too.

Unless you have a location independent job, or one that is viable in a country setting, the perils of city life on family/children are difficult to avoid.

I suppose it depends highly on the city.

Commutes aren't great but if you're raising a family you largely pick your poison. A 1 hour commute can mean a lot of things. It doesn't get you far in a city of a million but it'll get you a fair way out from a smaller 300k population center.
