Yes, you can relate to it, if you can understand the feeling of not so perfect child who is continually dealing with the obstacles in her life. She always wants to handle them all alone without informing nor taking the help of anyone else even when others want to do something for her.
Lilli admitted the fact that she was so excited to work again with Oleff (who played Stanley) after a horror film IT released back in 2017. Together they had a romantic relationship with having sex with each other for the very first time.
However, later Sydney came to know that she has a special feeling towards Dina, and further, the crush of Stanley on Sydney remains unrequited. Sydney tried to kiss Dina, but not reciprocated. So with the feeling of rejection, Sydney got angry a lot, further also bullied by Brad Lewis (played by Richard Ellis), who is the boyfriend of Dina.
Later at the time of detention at school, she realized that she likes girls, and also she does not want to let-go her feelings towards Dina. In the last episode, Sydney is dancing with Dina. At that time, she finally finds that Dina liked her kiss.
But before Sydney would come to know about the feelings of Dina towards her, Brad reads Syd’s diary and interrupts their slow-dance session. It was an embarrassing moment for everyone!
As a result of Brad’s Bullying, Sydney’s anger arouses her superpower, and this led to exploding his body. It was unrealistic and surprising for everybody there at the high school gym. It was filled with chaos when everyone finds stains of guts and blood on their clothes.
Most of the viewers might attach with it while watching the show since every character has a different story and are dealing with their problem. So the makers have tried to serve something that can relate with and gain the emotions of its viewers.

Hence, this will surely help our society much to avoid such feelings and inspire people to deal with their hardships with courage! And this is something that keeps us happy every time! According to Ellis, The show looks almost real since it does not include any fairy tale or glamorized mix.
