Don't judge people because we really don't know what struggles they are going through.
We often neglect mental illness and don't talk about it as much as we should.
Specially, I see in our Desi community - its sort of a taboo talking about mental illness or depression. I often hear people say Uff depression is happening because you don't have anything to do . Well, that's true to an extent that empty mind is a devils workshop but there are times when even if you are super busy you have depressive thoughts and that can only be solved gradually with talking to someone.
If a person could actually overcome anxiety on their own there wouldn't be depression in the first place. So, nobody knows what the person is going through.
Secondly, people often say there is nothing as depression - people often ridicule and make fun if somebody says so or so is in depression.
Well, do you actually know what's it to be in that place? Depression is like a mite that ends up eating somebody and playing around with their brain. Ofcourse they don't do it willingly. So, before you think somebody has a perfect life and has it all, think it isn't all rosey. There are so many parts of life that people don't show and only they know what they are going through.
Loneliness makes things worst and that often happens when we start thinking people around us - our family and friends don't understand us, so we stop communicating with them and that triggers depression more.
I feel so sad to see two famous personalities overburdened by depression and taking away their lives!
If you are going through depression or anxiety seek help. There's absolutely no shame in saying this out loud.
And also if you know anyone who's goi going through serious anxiety issues or depression please help them. Be kind... Life is short.
I don't usually share such emotional posts but today I felt I should share my feelings. .
Let me know what do you think? Did you ever go through depression or PPD (postpartum depression) who did you seek help from? How did you overcome it? .
