Forums - General Discussion - A friend of mine has passed away, and I cannot believe it

Back in 2015 I joined a community site. She was the owner, even if she was just a young girl back then.

We talked about TV, movies, music... I still remember when she was looking for a new avatar, and I send her a image from the main character of Ib. She loved it, even if she was not into gaming.

She loved to read stories. I loved to write. I would send her my stories, and she would read, and says she loved it, even if they were not that good at all.

We had some fights. Some stupid fights. But that would be my fault. Well, mostly my fault.

Sometimes, the site would be empty, but I could still find her online. It looks like she really loved her website. Well, I loved it too.

I once wrote a new story... She was the main character. We posted it on the site, and everybody praised it. Maybe I wrote really well... Maybe she was the perfect character.

She was really happy to help other people in the site. But the truth is that she had depression. Some days she would not eat at all. She was always complaining about headaches...

She would disappear from the website from time to time. A few months ago, she had disappeared again.

Tonight, a friend of mine, who was also a member in the site, called me on Twitter. He told me he had some sad news.

Her family contacted the members from the site, and stated that she had passed away.

Unfortunately, she will never talk to me again.

She will never read my stories again.

As for me... I don't know what my next steps will be


Thanks for reading and sorry my bad english.

I could never find the right words for these kind of situations. My condolences.

Sorry for your loss. Death is never easy to deal with.

A brazilian site that was more like a small community. Sorry, I don't want to give details because they are at a shock right now.

She was younger than me... Hard to believe it happened...

I don't really know what to say in times like these, just... I'm sorry.

I think we've all had some people we know pass away in our time, but I have no idea what it must feel like when it happens to someone so young. At an old age, it's easier to accept it as it's to be expected, but for people to pass away at such a young age is just... really unfair. My best wishes go to everyone who knew her, especially her family.

Sorry to hear that. A friend I had met online died as well. Me and some of his other friends found out about some problems he had a few days before, but because of the distance, I felt very limited in trying to help him get through it. I took two days off from work (didn't tell him that) just to talk to him and try to help him as much as possible, but in the end it wasn't enough, and we found out from his brother a while later that he had passed away. It's a strange feeling when someone who has been a big or positive influence on your life in some way suddenly goes away. I honestly don't quite remember how I dealt with it, except for one thing. I spoke a lot with other people who knew him. 

Maybe sharing thoughts about her with your mutual friends, or other people that knew her could be therapeutic.

My condolences.

I am extremely sorry to hear that. It's going to be confusing and painful for you for awhile. You'll think about them all the time, you'll miss them, you'll remember them at the oddest moments. That's the way it goes. It hurts, it hurt a lot. You've got to keep living, though, you've got to keep moving into the future, because you carry their memory with you. You are a part of their mark on this world. Fight for that, because it's worth it.
