Open letter for you
I just wanna address a topic to you which society try to bury under shame, guilt and doubt.
You can try to guess the topic but you can't get it right, because it is so under-rated.
Here is a message to you on mental health..
Mental health is a real thing and not a joke.
People say mental health is non-existent which is clearly a myth.
Trust me, people who don't know what mental health is, have not yet still been exposed to other darkest side of life.
Definitely, I don't want you to experience that, trust me, it is no good. Least I want you to do is, be little empathetic, understanding, non-judgmental who are dealing with tough situations and vulnerable to mental health problems.
I don't understand the labels, tags and stigmas attached to individuals suffering from problems!
Can we just be a human and have a humanistic approach towards them? How difficult is that?
Am I asking you to do a difficult thing possible, I guess no!!! I hope, you believe the same too.
Mental health disorders bring chaos to your life which isn't beautiful at all.
It damages your soul and leaves a very little scope of healing, and that is saddening.
Your mind screws you up in all ways possible.
Some people believe that, if you are sad, you experience depression, damn dude! that is not the case at all. There are certain criterias and conditions to be met for it to be called depression.
Please don't google few symptoms and jump to destructive conclusions which will lead to serious damaging diagnosis which even could be true.
I have so many thoughts running in my head, and finding it difficult to pen down all here because the thought of negligence is too overwhelming.
I understand, you are sad but you are not depressed.
It is just because you have not done your submission, not done mumma's work for which you got scolded, not got back to your significant other which is why you would be slightly disturbed, not done something that might have left you disappointed and the reasons go on.
I just wanna say that, don't let all these pity reasons believe that you are depressed. Depression is literally huge and intense and trust me, when I say this.
I can't stop emphasizing on the importance of mental health but I guess, we have to end somewhere at the end of the day.
Well here, this is my attempt, to tell you how serious your mental health can get if not taken seriously.
Want to say that, please take care of your body and soul, engage into self love and self care, don't let others manipulate you, do what your soul makes you happy, just be happiest and keep spreading smiles to distant miles. Most importantly, never let your self respect and value go down for anyone in your life.
Be the vibe you want to attract, try to be positive and know that, every problem has a solution, and you will get right there, only if you emphasize mainly on the solution, and use "problem" just as the base.
That is it, folks! Hope this open letter made you all feel little better, cleared some of common myths just in case. Most importantly, be grateful for whatever you have, because you would have precious things like love, care, value, respect, affection, which some fail to get. Nevertheless, you deserve every bit of love, no matter how you are, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
