13 Reasons Why: Tape 1, Side B

We wake up in the morning and I guarantee you the vast majority of us reaches for our phone to see if there’s anything we missed out on. How do the kids put it now? Oh. Yeah. FOMO, or Fear Of Missing Out. 

I’m not here to scold or lecture because I’d be hypocritical in doing so. I do everything I just wrote and more. The point of me writing about 13 Reasons Why as frequently as I am is because I really think the show does a phenomenal job of giving us a birds-eye view of how human behavior is, and how cringingly cruel we can be and sometimes are.

After picking up our phone and waking the screen, we’ll either be elated to see who reached out to us; how many likes, comments, or otherwise we received on our social network profiles; if you’re like me, what’s going on in the world in terms of news and politics; sports wise: the scores, highlights…; streaks selfies or snaps from friends.

Along with it is how we make friends. We’re always taking notice of who’s around us and seeing who we most personalize best with, at least I do.

Attraction on different levels is involved too; we don’t usually socialize with people we’re not attracted to. Keep in mind, attraction isn’t solely based on the physical it’s also on the ideological. Another way to put is: we like to spend time with people who are agreeable with us. But it too is a good thing, healthy too, to be around those who are less so yes this and yes that to us.

All of these complicated psychological human behaviors we each go through naturally is what leads to having friends. In 13 Reasons Why episode two, these are the two things it addresses:

(1) Perspective

(2) Friendship

13 Reasons Why: Tape 1, Side A

Let me just say up front, these posts about one of Netflix’s latest original series 13 Reasons Why aren’t reviews, per se. I won’t be scoring them; I’ll only be writing really impressions and thoughts. And I won’t likely be writing about all 13 episodes either.

The other note I want to make before continuing on about the show itself, and something I’ll amend to each post, is if you yourself or you personally know someone who is considering self-harm, ending their own life… whatever. It doesn’t matter go 13reasonswhy.info for some resources on how and where to find help.
