13 Reasons Why.... You Should Be Nice

by - April 18, 2017

I recently finished 13 Reasons Why on Netflix. Honestly, I didn't know what to do or think once I had finished. I felt slightly numb inside. That show is deep. Real. Deep. It breaks so many boundaries that are often softened or untouched in regular tv shows. The message is so strong, and along with every other person who watched it, it got me thinking; and for that, I wanted to write this post. 

Thirteen Reasons Why You Should Be Nice. 

1. You never really know what someone is going through. No matter how well you know, or think you know someone; there may be more beneath the surface.

2. We're all human. We don't all think the same, and we do make mistakes. Don't hold a grudge just because someone holds a different opinion to you.. it's okay.

3. It's nice to be nice. Simple enough.

4. You never know how much just one positive comment could impact someones day.

5. That thing you said, that thing you thought was an irrelevant 2 second remark.. well it stuck in that persons head. And they won't forget you said it. Did you really need to say it?

6. Often, being positive towards someone else makes you feel positive also. Try it. It's a good feeling.

7. It costs you absolutely nothing. 

8. Having someone there is sometimes all someone needs. You don't need to talk. If someone needs to talk to you, just be there. Listen. You're helping more than you know. 

9. You can burn up to 40 calories during 15 minutes of laughter a day. That's never a bad thing. Have a laugh.

10.  You could change someones entire outlook on that day, or even life, by just one kind gesture.

11. You're wasting all your energy whilst being negative. Think how you want to spend it. 

12. Something that may be irrelevant to you, might be a very touchy or difficult subject to someone else. So it's important to always be courteous.

13. Don't wait. It may be too late by then.
