We all have heard the word Depression. But is it just a mental state or something more than that?
Well if we see the definition of the word, then it says “Depression is a feeling of unhappiness that lasts for a long time. Depression can be a medical condition and may have physical signs, for example being unable to sleep,etc.”
Depression is not just a mental state, it effects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Sometimes, the effect of being in depression is so high that it leads to people committing suicide.
So, now the question is, what happens that people give up?
We see so many successful, famous personalities committing suicide even after living a life with luxury that most of us dream about.
So, is fame and money enough?
Well, we need to realise that the most important thing in life is happiness, to get a feeling of being satisfied and to have someone whome you can just flood your heart out.
Here we need to understand that everybody is fighting battles in their own life’s. Maybe we don’t actually realise this but sometimes when we make fun of people we don’t know how deeply it would affect someone. Well, the biggest irony of our country is that the top creators or influencers on any social media platform, may it be YouTube or Instagram or whatever are the people who just roast others and all of us feel happy about it and enjoy the same. We never think of the state of mind of the person being roasted.
We’ve got shows with so much of negative content where people instead of supporting each other fight like rats, abusing their co contestants and we as audience enjoy it and such shows are trending #1.
At this particular time, we know the whole world is fighting against a pandemic. There are people out there suffering and struggling to survive. In such a scenerio, it is our very duty to be kind to other people.
Talk to the people around you. If you find some changes in someone’s behaviour, ask them if they are doing okay. Just tell people that you believe in them that you are there for them anyways. This is what people actually want.
More than the money that you make, what is more important is the impact that you are making in others life’s. Be kind. Treat people like you want yourself to be treated, it is as simple as that.
At the end of the day, the only thing that will matter is that you could actually save someone’s life and someone drowning.
