To be honest, somehow I have not been feeling like sharing my photos or talking about my experiences not because I have been going through depression or any phase but, because sometimes I just feel so content that I don’t feel like talking about it. You know that feeling when you have accepted everything so gracefully that you just want to live it, feel it and do nothing but smile?! And sometimes I just FEEL LOST 😦
It had been a while since I had written anything until my last post about Why has “What do you do Professionally”, become so important ?.
Yes, this is what happens with people who have immense mood swings that come and go without a warning.
I lost some people to death recently because of some illnesses. One of my friends who has Cf, has been going through bad times as well. I myself have been struggling every now and then just to breathe okay and being a normal human being sometimes you start anticipating your future as well while looking at them.
And then to add an insult to the injury, I had to let go of another very special friend from my life. So you see, so much on my plate.
I have spoken about my condition when I was in depression but in my case, it was my health which I couldn’t accept hence I landed in an unknown world.
I was a danger to myself. I didn’t want to live or talk about it anymore. I thought that I was completely alone going through all this. I also realized how lucky I was, and what a wonderful family and friends I had, but that didn’t matter, I had to shut them out.
I wanted the world to swallow me up, and nothing seemed better to me than death at that point in time.
TRUST ME- there is nothing wrong in that!
SEEKING HELP IS ABSOLUTELY OKAY!!!
You might feel you will get labeled but really, who cares?!
I am not doing anything which might harm anyone or hurt anyone. I am only getting myself some help to live better and laugh better and once I am well, full of love and life again – That’s when I can share it with others.
COMMON FACTORS OF STRESS:
Relationships, profession or social status & Physical Health
Now, I believe all three of them have a solution and when there is a solution then what is the need to worry, right?! I know it’s easier said than done. But, try to be more accepting and open to help.
One way to help people/yourself is to inject them/yourself with as many positive thoughts as possible. It’s priceless!
We have been given just one life. Whatever is left in there, in you- even just one ray of light, you will find it and make it grow, cling onto it with all that you have got. You have to, just for yourself alone. It’s your life, It’s your time- live it before you run short of it! No matter how messed up things may seem, look for your silver lining and hold on for dear life!!
One of the things I learned from my spouse, it’s that each one of us has a role to play and we shouldn’t be dependent on others for our happiness, activities or thoughts.
And I am so thankful to him for all of this.
I gift people what makes them happy, I do for others what they need, I talk to people with energy & love, I fall in and out of love endlessly and I don’t run of it now.
As a teenager I didn’t know much about mental health, all I knew was that if there’s a situation and I can’t find answers, I can’t talk to my family about it- And I would talk to some complete stranger and tell him/her about my problems and listen to their unbiased opinion: though then the problems were smaller, for that age it was still a matter of life or death.
Coming back to square one, those strangers are called Psychologist or Psychiatrist- We pay a fee, get heard, vent out a bit, rid ourselves of the weight and hence, we get all the help that we need.
So those out there who are shy or ashamed of their mental health and stay away from help- Please go. It feels euphoric in the end and you will feel much much better after you start your therapy.
Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always be this person and is there for those who want my help.
Plus I will try to write more frequently and share my thoughts with you. Also, I’ll soon write about my recent solo travel to Thailand and travel to Kashmir with my baby brother.
Until then, you take care and you just know that you aren’t alone. All of us are fighting our own silent battles, every day and we stand united
