You become a light for others because you know what it’s like to be in that deep.
Hannah Baker is coming back, but she’s going to have a slightly different role this time around.
The show does not “dramatize” or “glorify” depression or suicide. It shows you how it really is. The rape scenes and the suicide scene were graphic? Well, life is graphic. Life does not censor pain.
The fact that she was recording her last words on cassette audio tapes really says it all.
Here’s why Hannah Baker herself deserved a damn tape.
A lot of people ask me why I am depressed. Or what was so bad that it turned into this ball of dark smoke in my heart. Now I know, it’s never one thing. It’s all the little things building up to be a giant monster that swallows you alive.
Maybe Hannah Baker is just like me. Maybe she’s just like any of us. The only difference between us is she had enough reasons for taking her own life.
I wish someone had squeezed your hand and told you it was going to be okay. I wish people had seen what you went through. I wish people acted. Sometimes, I also wish you had turned into one of them, at least that way you would be with us
The real reasons Hannah Baker committed suicide are much more complex than you might think.
