I Felt Numb After Watching 13 Reasons Why

Blog

For those of you who have been living under a rock with Patrick Star, Selena Gomez has produced a Netflix original series — an adaptation of the Jay Asher novel, 13 Reasons Why. The entire plot revolves around suicide. If you are sensitive to this issue, consider this a trigger warning, in which case, please do not read on. Also *SPOILER ALERT* if you haven’t seen/completed the show.

This post is a response to this article written by a psychotherapist.

What Is Your Life Story?

Motivation & Inspiration, Wellness

I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I feel a little down when I think of my future career and competing with myself to get better at what I do. I strive to become a successful scarf-wearing news anchor on national television and a well-known YouTuber. I want to improve my speaking/interviewing skills and be able to influence the way in which the news is portrayed. I don’t want it to seem like I am biased in any way just because I openly represent my faith through the way I dress. I want to make it easier for those Muslim women who think they can’t get a job because of their religion and the way they dress. I want to be the best reporter I can be and improve on my filming skills. Those are my career goals. It is up to you guys, my lovely followers to view my videos, help me improve my content by commenting on what you did/didn’t like, subscribe, and share my link to your friends. I truly love every one of you who has supported me in this way 😘.

Throughout the years, I have been changing my mind regarding what I want to do with my life, and identifying who I really am. The change is never going to end, but I have gotten a pretty good sense of my responses to those two questions. When I feel like I am stagnant and not moving forward, I like to watch motivational videos from successful people so I can understand the struggles they went through. It cheers me up and convinces me that hard work will always pay off if you don’t give up easily. There will be crises along the way, but you have to remain unstoppable on this winding journey.

Check out this “Draw My Life” video by famous YouTuber Lilly Singh, aka Superwoman. She has nearly 10 million subscribers and she has literally been all over the world, chilling with her best friend celebrities and politicians worldwide. If she can reach the stars, so can we. I hope this video helps out at least one person.

What is your life story? Comment down below, and maybe I will do a “Draw My Life” too.

Dallas-area mom,Candace Payne, just wanted to show her few hundred Facebook friends her new toy. She went into Kohl’s last Thursday, looking for a pair of yoga pants, but somehow reached the toy section and found the adorable growling Chewbacca mask she ended up buying. Unable to contain her enthusiasm, Payne decided to video herself unpacking the toy in her car and broke the internet with her hysterically animated laugh. Her Facebook video went viral overnight, gaining more than 100 million views and hundreds of thousands of new Facebook followers. Payne even broke the record of Buzzfeed’s watermelon video!  Currently, the video has more than a shocking 2 billion views. Catch her on Good Morning America as she tells her story and wins several other Star Wars toys. Stay happy and find joy in the little things. They add up, I promise.
