I just finished the 2nd season of 13 Reasons Why.
It was somewhat infuriating & a whirlwind of emotions that I am actually kind of glad I didn't get a chance to binge watch this season.
There were several episodes that made me want to stop watching & I believe that is the point.
Life is hard, feelings are hard & dealing with life is not all sunshine & rainbows .
I think that there is a character that every single person can relate to on this show & I am glad that it makes you reflect on your own life, how you treat people, how what you do (no matter how small) has an impact on the entire world around you.
I can't say that I haven't been in Hannah's shoes because I have felt what she felt & still do sometimes.
It is so hard to reach out or tell someone, anyone, your true feelings but it is so much better when you do.
I recently told my mom that I've been having a lot of anxiety & actually cancelled plans with family & good friends because since I got fired I feel worthless & like I can't leave the house or I might die & she said "thats not you" but it is...at least right now it is.
Life is 100% about your perception of this world & we are all 100% different so every single situation you are in is how you see the world, how you react to trauma or joy.
I choose every day to keep moving forward.
Some days it is a MASSIVE struggle & others are so easy but each moment is a gift & mental health is something I believe has to be worked on constantly.
Believe in yourself & just always try your best to be kind to everyone you meet.
A smile at a stranger or a simple hello can completely change someones day.
