So I don’t usually make long posts like this, but after binge watching 13 reasons why I wanted to get some things off my chest about the hit Netflix series.
The show has received some backlash from suicide prevention groups. They think the show “glorifies suicide” and I’ve heard people say the show uses suicide as “revenge.” Personally, I didn’t get that message from 13 Reasons Why. I believe these suicide prevention groups missed a crucial part.
The show explains that the people in your life hurt when you hurt yourself. It puts a much needed spotlight on sexual assault and bullying. 13 reasons why effectively shows how everyone’s actions affect other people in some way, good or bad. Each person who received the tapes negatively affected Hannah’s life to lead her to want to take her own life. Then I realized something that Hannah didn’t. She didn’t realize how much more suffering she would cause by committing suicide. Her parents suffered. Clay was madly in love with her so he suffered greatly, and everyone else on the tapes suffered in their own way.
I learned that you should be kind to everyone because you truly never know how much pain someone is in. I love the scene when Clay tells Hannah he loves her because it teaches everyone that you shouldn’t wait to tell someone you love them if you do. You never know what storms people are going through, or when their last day will be. So be kind to everyone. It could save their life.
