Please Like Me – Celebrating The Difficulties That Make Us Unique

There’s a lot we don’t share for fear of not being liked. By breaking the silence and talking about difficult things, we can also start breaking the stigma. That is the idea behind a new crowdsourced video campaign called Please Like Me.

The video series is part of a cleverly devised strategy to promote an original series, also called Please Like Me, premiering today on Pivot — Participant Media’s new network targeting millenials. Participant Media, who have previously brought us films like Food, Inc., The Cove, Fast Food Nation and An Inconvenient Truth, says Pivot is driven by a “mission to spark conversation and inspire change. Please Like Me “sheds light on a variety of relevant issues that impact the Millennial audience and deals with topics including quarter-life crises, family relationships, sexuality and mental health and the search for the perfect recipe.”

The social media campaign aims to collect stories that do not often get shared, because they revolve around difficult topics — the loss of a loved one, physical complexes, personal issues and other things that we may be ashamed to talk about. In telling these stories, Please Like Me celebrates honesty and defies judgment, helping break down barriers that hold us back. By talking about those things we are used to hiding, we get one step closer to a world where we can all be happy and comfortable in our own skin.

Watch the videos and, if you feel called to do so, share your own story.

About

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
