Being a teenager is hard. Homework, tests, parents, and social media all conspire against kids to make life suck. For one teen in particular, it seems like no matter how hard they try, they just can’t do anything right. Classmates pick on them not only at school but online, too, and they just can’t understand why. Why is everything in life so hard?
Let’s not get started on parents. It’s like they don’t notice how hard they are trying. They don’t even seem to care. Life feels like a huge disappointment, but no one listens to the problems or the pain. One day, after a particularly rough moment on social media, the teen decides to end their life. No one will miss them anyway, right?
Live streaming the video of their last few moments, fielding comments both cruel and kind. It’s in the seconds before death that they realize maybe things can change. Maybe things can get better, and maybe they don’t need to end their life to finally find peace. Fading Memories is a reminder that, even in the darkest of times, there is always a reason to live.
