A woman scheduled a heartbreaking post on her Instagram before jumping to her death. Yocheved Gourarie shared her suicide note stating she was 'no longer in pain' on the social media app on December 23 - the day after her death. The day before, the 24-year-old jumped to her death in Hudson Yards, New York. Miss Gourarie fell at about noon, police told the Village Sun. Gourarie noted that she had planned for her final post - a photo of herself with her face turned up toward the sun accompanied by a lengthy caption - to go live on social media in the wake of her death.
At the top of the post, which was shared with her 891 followers, Gourarie added a warning in all capital letters, noting that the information in the post was 'sensitive and shocking' and suggested people 'sit down before reading' it. Earlier posts on Gourarie's Instagram account made reference to her struggle with anorexia and depression, while also advocating for mental health. In her final Instagram post, Gourarie wrote that she had scheduled a 'note to send to my parents posthumously' which included more details about her apparent decision to take her own life. She acknowledged that posting a public suicide note on Instagram might cause her parents pain.
"I don’t want to do that, I just want to leave my last mark on this world," Gourarie wrote.
"All of you have made my life so much more full, brighter, and happier than it would have been without you. Your support, your encouragement, your hugs, your invitations, your smiles, your texts, your tagging me in memes you think I’d find funny."
She went on to say that "None of you could have done anything - or done more - to prevent this from happening. You all did your absolute best and for that I am eternally grateful. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain."
She ended the post by writing 'I love you.'
