13 Things I Learned From 13 Reasons Why

The Netflix phenomenon 13 Reasons Why, has clearly taken the world by storm.

Yes, of course it’s an entertaining series to watch, however it is also extremely blunt, heavy, and difficult to watch. It doesn’t sugar coat the teenage suicide of Hannah Baker and the 13 reasons why she decided to kill herself. This show is about so much more than her story.

Here are 13 things I learned from 13 Reasons Why.

1.  People forget how difficult high school can be, especially for kids who aren’t athletes.  

2. Bullying is still alive and well, it just changes its disguise in the way it takes place.

3. The show reminds us how rape can still be considered a grey area, as mind-boggling and disgusting as that sounds. 

4. Being a bystander can cause more harm than intended (look at everybody that just watched Hannah go through everything she did).

5. Don’t pass judgement on people, you have no idea what their story is.

6. Always take responsibility for your actions- just look at what happened to Jeff after Jessica’s party.

7. Things aren’t always great at home and school might be a kid’s escape, look at Justin.

8. Be grateful for people that help you, but don’t let them manipulate you into thinking you owe them anything. You already know I’m talking about you, Bryce.

9. Slut-shaming is the most damaging to a young woman’s personal growth and development.

10. Say how you feel, before it’s too late. Life is short and you never know when somebody’s time is up.

11. Sometimes it’s okay to go out of your way to help people, you could be their last cry for help.

12. The truth will always set you free.

13. Suicide can have a ripple effect on how it impacts others. It’s never something to be taken lightly, you don’t know when somebody’s had enough. Never forget that you matter.

You are not alone.
