If you’re like me and like to binge watch Netflix series, you’ve probably recently watched the new show Thirteen Reasons Why. It’s not for the fainthearted, but a powering and emotional show. So thought I would share a few quotes from it that I hope will impact you like they did with me. Quotes from either the book or Tv show.
“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.”
You can’t rewrite the past.
I guess that’s the point of it all. No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.
You can’t go back to how things were. How you thought they were. All you really have is…now.
Even though someone appears to shrug off a sideways comment or to not be affected by a rumor, it’s impossible to know everything else going on in that person’s life, and how we might be adding to his/her pain. People do have an impact on the lives of others; that’s undeniable.
If you hear a song that makes you cry and you don’t want to cry anymore, you don’t listen to that song anymore. But you can’t get away from yourself. You can’t decide not to see yourself anymore. You can’t decide to turn off the noise in your head.
You can hear rumors. But you can’t know them.
