I feel like now is a perfect time to write a review on the Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. The second season is soon to be coming out and I am excited to see how they will play it out after the death of Hannah.
If you haven’t seen the series, 13 Reasons Why, is all about a teenage girl who commits suicide. But before she does this she records the 13 reasons that lead her to her suicide. these tapes were sent to each of the people she believes played a little or a big part in how she felt and what she did. Each of these people are able to listen and think about what they had done to her, however by this time it was too late for anyone of them to change a thing about it. All but one of the people affected her in some way. Clay was that one person who she did apologise to on the tapes and admitted he didn’t really need to be on them she wanted him to know what had happened to her.
I really like how this story was played out, such a tragic thing but it’s reality. This is someone’s life and it just goes to show all those comments someone may say to someone else, they may seem so meaningless and not abusive but to the person you are saying them to or the things you are doing to them it can be something really big in their life. This series goes to show just how brutal high school can be for some people. They can walk through their school years so alone with people out their giving unneeded comments or pushing and shoving. Sometimes this can come from the persons closest group of friends, someone who knows their weakness and someone who knows all their secrets. The next thing they know there is a fall out and everything they trusted one person with is being used against them.
I love that this series was made. I fully believe that it can open peoples eyes into the reality that everyone needs someone there for them at their lowest moments, just someone who wants to listen to them and help them through their situation. Even more so for the people who have gave the slight comment to someone who could have knocked them down a little to start thinking more before they speak. No one knows what someone is going through, you don’t know how much a comment can hurt someone. How they can sit thinking about that comment day after day and what they did to deserve it. Think before you act or speak.
If you reading this feel like you have no one to talk to or no one who will listen to you or you simply don’t feel like you can talk to those around you, do not hesitate to e-mail me or contact me on my social media and I will be more than happy to try and help or just listen to you. You can find all my contact details on my Contact page.
Truth is you can’t just go around saying or doing something that is bullying towards someone else and expect it not to affect them. Not everyone is has the strength to cope with it and those who do have the strength the more they are bullied it can slowly break them down.
Until next time,
