Who hasn’t heard about depression? but for us it nothing more than a phase that someone goes through. We can never understand what a person suffering from depression goes through! A depressed person goes through a state of low mood and aversion affecting an individual’s mind with hopeless, helpless, dejected, or worthless feelings. Being isolated and becoming anti-social comes with depression so complimentarily. It makes it all worse because you keep overthinking stuff and wish to escape life like killing yourself.
Did you know that according to a research more than 45,000 people in America die from depression every year, and that makes it the 10th most prolific killer of the people? But who is responsible for it? We as a society are the reason behind it. Because whenever someone explains the awfulness and the ugliness they are going through, we choose to ignore it rather than understanding them or ask them to get over it.
But what we fail to understand is that it will only make things worse instead of making it better. That’s why it brings me great joy to see someone handle someone else with depression with such care and grace that it gives me hope.
And here’s a similar story when a depressed man messaged a pasta company instead of seeking help.
