It’s Hard

Saw an episode of this intriguing series because the Love was binge-watching it. I want to share my take on this show, but it will be in a separate post. 

Anyway, I feel for Mr. Porter, the school counselor, and his struggle. It’s hard to not know a serious problem that one of the students is having when every person counts on you and looks up to you since you are the helper and empowerer of the institution, but it’s as difficult as knowing everything and trying your best to act on it professionally and humanely, even if your job and license are both on the line.
Jay Asher, the writer of 13 Reasons Why, said it best. “You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything affects everything.”
