I have bene super busy recently with helping my partner with his business and with housework and dog walking that I have neglected my blog! I know, shameful. But recently I had an anniversary and that was the hardest day I have had. It was the death of my ex-boyfriend, it has been 5 years now, but it still hurts so bad.
I have recently finished watching 13 Reasons Why, and after that ended I was sobbing. Not just like a few tears but full on where there is no sound and your head is hurting and you feel like you can’t breathe and your face is wet from all your tears. It made me fall even more in love with the show. I know that some people hate the show because they see it as “glorifying suicide” but to me it isn’t. yes some parts were extremely graphic and triggering but it shocked me, and my partner who watched it with me, it made us BOTH more aware of how our actions or words can make people feel.
The show has brought so much to light when it comes to teenagers and high school. All the little things that people do to others that they feel is just a little joke, may not be to some people. it has brought up bullying, suicide awareness and most of all realisation to the people that do treat others like this. It is serious, it needs to be stopped.
This makes me want to do more for mental health. So I will be writing more and making more things to sell so all proceedings go to charities.
But I need your help to do this! I need artists/illustrators!
We can all do this.
