Amanda Lauren, bridesmaid dress expert, had a post published yesterday on XOJane in which she explains why she is glad her former friend died. Some reasons included not being the kind of adult Amanda felt she should be.
…something about her mindset that had had just stopped evolving after high school. Her apartment was always filthy and her bedroom had clothing strewn about everywhere. She didn’t take pride in her home or respect her own property…She also didn’t have real boyfriends or go out on dates. While dating in L.A. is hard, I feel like she probably had no concept of how to be in a relationship.
Other reasons included her Facebook feed not being up to Amanda’s standards.
While most Facebook posts, at least in my feed, are pictures of engagements, weddings, vacations, children, pets and links, her page felt like the diary of a fourteen-year-old girl with an eating disorder from a Lifetime movie circa 1993…She also frequently posted about how she was mentioned on entertainment shows, talking about the status of her relationships with various celebrities.
Her friend was also apparently a “cam girl” and “there were basically nude clips and pictures all her over her page”. But mainly, Amanda seems glad she died because her friend was mentally ill.
It sounds horrible to say, but her death wasn’t a tragedy, her life was…Schizoaffective disorder robbed her of reaching her potential…She was alone and terribly unhappy when died…This girl had nothing to live for.
Amanda wrapped up her post with this wonderful feel good conclusion.
She would have either been institutionalized or a major burden on her family. There was just no way she would have survived on her own. Drowning to death was relatively painless compared to what she had to endure in life.
Truly a touching tribute to a former friend struggling with mental illness. The post is now marked ‘Anonymous’.
