It inspired me to write, in a rather indirect way. First of all, to be clear, I refuse to bash on the people who put hard work into this show and something was probably done right considering the popularity, but I have to wonder at what expense, because, to be honest, it depressed me and disappointed me much more than it inspired me. However, it inspired me to turn my opinion into action. Why should I make a Facebook rant about the problems with 13 Reasons Why? Will that do anything? I am a writer, and I am good at what I do, and I have some suggestions on how to make shows about mental illness and similar topics much better. I doubt I'll get a response, but I'm not afraid to try anything and everything, even if I just come off as ridiculous. I'm ridiculous,  but I'm also ambitious and would probably make a damn good screenplay writer.

I honestly don't know where to start. 13 Reasons Why has changed me so much!!! It made me rethink my life and my interactions with everyone and has forced me to become a better person. I knew that people go through things and don't share them, but watching Hannah's experience was truly eye opening. I have personally dealt with things such as anxiety and self-esteem issues, but watching this show and having Selena as a role model (sharing her story and showing us that she is just like her fans) made me realize that I'm not alone and that I will always have my family and friends whenever I need them. Selena and this show are truly so inspirational!!! Love both of them so much!!!!

It encourages me to be more kind to people because I really don't know what those people that do commit are actually going through.

It inspires me to always be kind to people,and to be carefull with the words i say when i'm angry. I had situation in my life which is kind of like Hannah's,but i remembered that i have family which would never let me down. I learned so many beautiful things from it,now i can see when someone needs help,like i needed.
