Yesterday, I began watching 13 Reasons Why and today, without even pausing once, I finished watching it. 3 years ago, I read this book, and even though the tv show aired months ago, I was afraid of watching it, fearing it would ruin my beloved book. At the end, I watched it, and it was beautiful, perhaps beyond better than the book. I heard things about what the tv show is doing, like embracing suicide, and raising millenials to kill themselves. But guess what, this is the ugly truth. Society forces us to have a phony smile in our faces, when truly, we are dying on the inside. Don’t call out and judge the people who think about suicide, because the once who should be called out are, sincerely, everyone, for creating a society to exclude someone for being different, and telling them to be afraid and stay quiet.
