It's been daaays since we finished watching Netflix's 13 Reasons Why and yet we're still not over it. We thought the book was already heartbreaking, but the series was even more heart-shattering. Huhu! It got us thinking about all the issues teens are facing helplessly that we might not even know about. So to help you (and ourselves, too!) become more sensitive towards other people, the people around us, we made this list of movies you can watch that will encourage you to always be kind to people...because we are all fighting our own battles in this world.

  1. Before I Fall

This movie, based on Lauren Oliver's book of the same title, tells the story of popular girl Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) who dies in a car accident. She wakes up the next day, on the same morning of the accident—over and over and over again. She lives on that day alone and tries to make sense of her life. In the end, Samantha notices the things she's missed before...like how much she affects the people around her.

  1. The Edge of Seventeen

Navigating through your teen years requires everything in you. It's hard to process your emotions and feelings about everything, to find someone—even just one person—who will understand. Those struggles and living through all of them is what Edge of Seventeen is all about. Hailee Steinfeld's Nadine faces a ton of problems, which she tells her teacher Mr. Bruner (Woody Harrelson) who gladly and hilariously gives her some advice.

  1. It's Kind of a Funny Story

Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story tells the story of Craig Gilner (Keir Gilchrist) who voluntarily checks himself into a psych ward after feeling all the pressures of life and being a teenager. While in the ward, he makes friends, meets a life mentor, and finds love...all while learning how to navigate through life and its messy parts.

  1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Charlie (Logan Lerman) tries to live a normal high school life after he's discharged from a mental health care institution. He then meets Sam (Emma Watson) and her stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller), and they all help each other get through high school. Based on Stephen Chbosky's novel of the same title, Perks shows us that we really are stronger together and that most of the time, you just need someone who listens and understands.

  1. The Breakfast Club

There's a good reason why this 1985 movie became a classic. If there's one thing 13 Reasons Why reminds us, it's that there's so much more to people than what we see on the surface. In the same way, The Breakfast Club gives us five common stereotypes and how there's something deeper in each of them...if only we take our time to get to know them better.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
