In a series of screenshots of Aubrey’s profile shared by Neil Edward Diaz, it is evident that Aubrey needs the help of people around her to make her feel better. Diaz’ post also gave a warning to everyone to no longer share posts about pages that encourage depression.

It is probably time for everyone to realize that depression is indeed real and we should all be mindful of the people around us. After all, a smile can hide so much that we can never tell how much a person is suffering. All we can do is be there when our family or friends need us and make them feel that they are loved.
