13 Reasons
(Abuse, Bullying, Sexting, etc)
Teenagers today have many issues that they face which cause them to second guess themselves or make poor decisions. Young people feel so much pressure to look a certain way, act a certain way, and to fit in with the popular crowd. Add in social media and now everything is displayed for the whole world to view. Getting likes on social sites and being visible is the new norm. Unfortunately, what happens is that no one is actually paying attention to their peer(s) in real life. Days go by without real contact or personal connection, and the teen who is suicidal or having suicide ideation go unnoticed; therefore creating the perfect stage for 13 Reasons.
