The fact that she was recording her last words on cassette audio tapes really says it all.
13 Reasons Why
Because I’m mom, and I said so.
Whether you liked the show, or hated it, “13 Reasons Why” clearly brought much needed attention to suicide and mental health.
Jealousy turns people into assholes, and our current social climate feeds off the inherent need to not only be part of the tribe and to belong, but also to dominate and control it.
I’m only writing this in response to another article written by a TC member who said that the show is “Pretty Much Bullshit.” Yeah, it is, if you have no idea what the fuck you’re talking about.
If she was a real girl, there’s NO way she should have killed herself. And here’s why…
It’s the people who watch it, claiming to care about mental health and all the issues it comes with, like depression, bullying and teenage suicide who don’t understand what they’re watching. They go around and post things on social media like they understand it, putting up criticisms like it’s their place.
Suicide is ugly. It is depressing. And it should never be an option.
Sometimes they leave a mark far deeper than we’d care to admit.
As unsettling as it may be to watch, it is this commitment to realism that makes 13 Reasons Why essential viewing.
