…we will we survive.
“A good friend once said to me: “I can love you and still let you go”. So, Hannah, I love you and I let you go. I miss you and I hope that wherever you go next, you feel peace, you feel safe, in a way that you never did here. Wherever you go next. I hope you know that I love you” – Clay Jensen, 13 Reasons Why https://13reasonswhy.fandom.com/wiki/Bye
It all started with Hannah Baker, 7 Tapes with 13 Reasons Why she did what she did…and the rest spiralled out of control culminating in 4 seasons of highs and lows, social issues and heavy emotion.
This series is an emotional rollercoaster, the first season is the most intense and came at a time when depression and teenage suicide was rife in the world and still is to this day…..the issues depicted in all 4 seasons are real, it may be dramatically played out but they are real, teenagers and adults alike go through these struggles on a daily basis.
What I learnt from this show is that in the end love will conquer all, the love of those around you is what helps you through the worst of times……we may not feel it at that exact moment but if we choose to live, face the demons inside our minds and accept the love from those who truly care for us we can endure the worst storms.
The series opens up various issues that need to be openly spoken about, it can be used as an educational tool to help those in need……

I write this post in a time when the world is changing, this virus has opened us up to ourselves…brought us into isolation opening up our minds, it has led us to face our fears and it is so easy to slip into a dark space without the things that we used to keep us safe…..change is difficult but with change comes a new understanding and there may even be a higher purpose for this change….so continue to show up and embrace the love that is found in each new day….WE WILL SURVIVE!!!!
” ….Choose to live. ‘Cause even on the worst day, there are people who love you. There’s new music waiting for you to hear, some… something you haven’t seen before that will blow your mind in the best way. Even on the worst day, life is a pretty spectacular thing.”- Clay Jensen Graduation Speech https://13reasonswhy.fandom.com/wiki/Graduation
