Last night I’ve finished ’13 reasons why’. I belive it’s the only tv show out there that shows the ugly truth. They even say it’s better than the book. That’s something rare.
You won’t find there any exaggerations, or unrealistic, impossible situations. Just the truth. Bulllying is such a big problem for today’s kids. I’ve never understood this evilness the kids have. Why bullying someone just because they are different? Or they aren’t rich, or they are smarter than you? How does it make you feel? I had bullies in HS. And I’ve stood up to them everytime I’ve witnessed an injustice happening. Things weren’t as bad as they are today but there were issues. What teenagers these days don’t understand or accept is that we all make mistakes. Especially when we’re young. Going to a party, drinking a beer or two, going out with your crush. Everything can go wrong from here. But that doesn’t make us sluts or alcooholics, or desperate for attention. At that age you don’t know 100% what is right or wrong. Don’t judge what you can’t understand. We are all different. Try and think what is like to be in somebody else’s position, try and think what would you have done if you were them. But that’s the thing. We judge and don’t think before we act or speak.
I think all this starts from our families. Parents these days don’t care about what might happen. They buy phones to their kids starting from an early age, like 3 or 4. Kids have acces to the internet and stay in front of their computers all day long instead of going outside and play with other kids. Parents prefer to make them silent instead of dealing with the problem. Caught in their own problems, they just won’t ‘look’ at their children.
We are doing this to ourselves. We are the only ones to blame. And this is just the beginning.
