I am now. I am proud of my ability now to switch off when I am being bullied. But rewind 12 years when I was in year 11 at school, with serious self esteem and self worth issues, I couldnt. And for me, I was lucky, if it wasnt for my mum I don't think I would be here today.
I really think it's simplifying the issue to say she should have just switched off.

I applaud her efforts at trying to bring it to the attention of the media and taking a firm stand with it. When it all broke I admit- I didn't really "get" what she was trying to do but on reflection- it was very brave. I hope her family and friends can take comfort in reflecting on her strength and courage.

The pain must have been too immense to carry on. How sad it is that her world had become too much to bear.
Shame on those who thought it was fun to bully her. I don't know how these trolls sleep at night.

Just FYI for those wondering why it isn't reported that she committed suicide. News outlets are not actually meant/allowed to report on suicides. This is because it can give others ideas on taking their own life. Things have changed somewhat on how they report on these situations and it's more common to be able to read between the lines and some news outlets will break the rules but mostly they will talk about depression etc.
I have always respected news outlets in this regard. It's painful enough for the family.
Also, if you know much about Charlottes life, you will know that she had a long battle with depression before the cyber bullies. She has been a victim of sexual abuse, a failed volatile marriage and countless other demons. Simply turning off her computer wouldn't have helped what she was going through. RIP

Charlotte should have been able to enjoy her social media platforms and she used them for good. I hate to think of the dread she felt when she saw the new messages from the trolls that belittled her and went so far as to wish her dead. I think it would break the strongest person.
