Hi everyone, I haven't posted on here in a little while but this morning as I checked Facebook I saw a status from one of my friends that compelled me to let out some thoughts and feelings. As usual whenever I check Facebook most of my newsfeed was full of memes and the like, then I saw a long status that to me seemed nothing more than like-bait. The status talked about suicide and depression (not exactly in great detail) - the bulk of the status was basically a call for likes and shares. While I can understand the need for stuff like this to be shared I got the feeling that this was nothing more than like-bait. The status was made by a popular girl and has so far since been posted yesterday at 16:28 gained 25 Likes/Loves. I do not know how many shared it. Among those who liked the post were some of my friends. I refused to like something that seems like nothing more than like-bait; something to validate a person as a good person online. It's good intentions are therefore meaningless. The post mentioned it being for moral support. As someone who has had suicidal thoughts and depression myself I can't help but feel somehow disrespected by this post. It does not help me in any way whatsoever. The people I know who liked it as well as the poster have never been there for me in real life when I have been struggling so why is it that they act all high and mighty and take the moral high ground when on social media such as Facebook? I believe it is because they wish to validate their good nature to the rest of the online world. To their countless so-called "friends". In reality, only 5% or less of these people will actually care. I want to fight back against this kind of like-bait. It is not right. It does not really make a difference. These people claim to care online but when they could clearly see I was struggling and when I admitted I have depression, suicidal feelings, and self-harm (at one point I had a total breakdown right in front of them) only one person actually came and comforted me.
