I just wanted to write about depression from a long time.I have been trying to educate people about depression and its seriousness but no one seems to understand or acknowledge it.
People think that depression is just sadness even I thought so sometime back. when you say about it to them,they say that what’s there to be depressed about,many people are having bigger problems ,they all are coping with it well. why don’t they understand that the breaking point of different people are different and sometimes it has nothing to do with the type of comfortable life the person is living.
Sadness is a short lived emotion it just comes and goes but depression is like a persistent one,so adamant just like you are in the death grip of a crocodile,it just turns and tilts you and take you to the deeper waters ,from where there is no escape.
The person might not ask you directly for help but look in to there eyes only thing they are saying to you is “Help me,I don’t want to feel miserable this way,I don’t want to die”.
when you message them ,How are you? There will be a pause before the reply “I’m good” that moment of pause say’s it all.
Some of them don’t even ask for help.But we don’t takeit seriously no matter what, saying that it’s just sadness and also might sprinkle more pain to there wounds by abandoning them.
When depressed, you don’t feel to get up from the bed,you lack interest in anything,nothing could make you happy anymore,you are surrounded by the cloud of hopelessness and much more ,the pain is excruciating.
It’s very difficult to come out of it, if any of your friend complaints about extreme moods and extreme sadness,Do a help,just be there for them.Don’t abandon them in such a pain. All they need is someone to help them to come out of it .
People suicide because they want to end the pain and not the life.
I wish I could help someone by writing about this.
You might be thinking how do I know it so well.I know it so well as I have faced it and came out of it with the help of a friend who suggested me to go for meditation and yoga and it did wonders .
it means that you can come out of it,never give up.
if you don’t ask answer will be always no .
don’t shy from sharing your situation with those who cares you the most.
And more over you will really got to know who is truly there for you.
