Depression For A Better Cause!

Depression For A Better Cause!

-By Rishika Desai

It all begins when all of a sudden your whole world comes crashing down due to failures. One bad situation ruins up your mood like anything. This results in episodes of emotionally wrecked feelings and to sum it up in short- you’re depressed. As far as psychologists say,’ Depression is a constant phase of sadness and inactiveness for over 2 weeks.’ It’s a phase where the person feels as if he has nothing to live for. Their mindset is stuck to the negativities in life. Statistics state that only 36% of people report their depression. You never know if the person you share your bed, food or room with or the one who talks to you day in and out is silently battling depression.

Depression as such is caused by traumatizing events happening unexpectedly. Failed relationships, inferiority complex, stressful work-load, and office environment or high expectations that your relatives or peers keep of you, ultimately you suffer from this. 

People who want to seek relief from these discomforting feelings rush to the doctors. They take therapies, sessions and few medicines for sound sleep. Eventually, they get better and pray that they’ll never return to that same situation again. They develop the tackling tactics whenever depressing moment arrives. Why? Because they realize the value of life! 

What about those who don’t even report for some guidance? Those people who don’t need a ray of light in their life. They cage themselves and don’t let anyone come near. People like these get accustomed to gloominess and probably have accepted to live just like that.

Darkness needs to be embraced, felt and then be fought back! People must know the value of life. Your breaths are limited; live them to its fullest. Don’t miss out on the beauty of life while darkness engulfs you. Look around yourself, you are not immortal! Probably the next sunrise is not in your destiny, so why to waste today’s sunset without appreciating what you’ve come along! Everything will remain- the sand, the water, and the sun- but not you! You have to make sure that you count your days by the smiles and not by the frowns. Society says, ‘Good days are followed by the bad’, but it never tells you what to do when bad days come along? Let me tell you, love yourself and be willing to come out of this. Though learned in a hard way, this lesson is going to be worth it!
