And he thought suicide was the best possible choice- an easy option to choose peace over the constant life conflicts! He ended his life and the rudest shock that came after his death was related to the missing ‘sensitiveness’. How insensitive were the words that came through his way, how selfish was the desire to choose personal peace and how rude was the essential love treatment. Alas, life is much more than this!
Depression, like any other illness, is not a happy thought. However, unlike any other illness, it is not considered a serious problem. In the year 2011, a study ‘World Mental Health Survey’ conducted by the World health organization suggested that about 35.9 percent of highly depressed people are living in India. India was said to be the most depressed country as per the study!
So what are we suppressing? Is it the expression or the desires? With high number of suicidal cases in occurrence, it is indeed a shock to figure that where is India heading as a nation! Kill your depression- here are the three things that you need to tell yourself while dealing with any negative thought.
That you are here for a reason- no matter how big or small:
Maybe your thoughts might be different at this particular moment, but you have to accept your presence. Somewhere for someone, your presence does make a difference. People look up to you whenever their definition of love is concerned. Before taking any major discussion, look up to them. Look up to your position in their life and have respect for that space. No matter how de-motivated you are right now, your opinion and thoughts can always work as an inspiration for some. Analyze the power in your words!
Step forward and express yourself:
There has to be that one person in your life who cares for you! So whenever there is a negative thought in your mind, come forward and speak up. Volunteer yourself and let nothing stop you! Even if there is no one to listen, you can choose some places like lifeline or chat rooms to express your feelings. Suicidal tendencies are alone and lonely. Kill them with the companionship of love!
That your survival can encourage someone dealing with depression:
If diamond cuts diamond then one success story in depression can also kill other’s tale of depression! By choosing life over death, you can probably motivate someone else who is also facing a similar situation like you. A candle that shines bright to enlighten the surroundings, is actually burning from inside. Now this is the kind of life one should live- selfless, self-evolving, and motivational.
