Those smiles can be questionable,
Those faces can be miserable.
Those hearts might be crying inside,
Those minds can be searching for the places to hide.
Are these lines justifying anyone near you? Yes? Then my friend, the person is so “Depressed“.
The state of mind where people give up on thinking capabilities, abandoned himself/herself and lastly, get swingy moods. That’s what we called “Depression”.
“Yeah, this one is for it”.
Do you know all the people in the whole damn world? Obviously No.
Do you really know the people ‘you know’? Agh! A big No.
I’m not talking about person’s particular interests. Here, I’m talking about their minds, their thoughts, their willingness to get over things & the most essential thing is their Silence.
They are speaking through silence. Are you listening?
I’m sure, you don’t know what they are thinking about. It doesn’t matter, whether you know them or not. I mean you’re not in their heads. How you suppose to? But, why?Why you don’t know? They must have given you some hints that how miserable they are, like how much “those” things troubling their minds & butchering their souls, like their world is crumbling, like how much they need your help. But you’re so much into their fake smiles & cool gestures. If you could read their minds, you’d be in tears.
Aren’t their eyes telling you something? Aren’t their silences bothering you? Have you ever asked them about their lives? Have you ever told them no matter what happens, you’re with them. No, because you’ve always been spoofed up by their sober acts. Sometimes, when you see something ‘usual’ that might not be ‘as usual’.
They need a break. A break from loneliness, from darkness & from pain in them. This is it. You have to do something for them because they need your help. They want to owe you.
Like this, you can find out that your closed ones or your loved ones are depressed.
“How to get to know that the person is depressed?”
1. He/she might have lost their interests in the things which earlier they find it pleasurable.
2. Sleep will suffer.
3. Will try to avoid interaction with people.
4. Anger and irritability.
5. Loss of confidence.
7. Eating issues: either eat so much or too little.
8. Lastly, the most dangerous one, suicidal thoughts.
Did you know that every year, over 121 million people worldwide are facing “Depression”. What could be the reason for it? I think, reason can be anyone or anything like love, relationships, failures, studies, physical appearance, heartbreaks, family issues or whatsoever.
Y’know sources have said that, US is the most depressed country because people over there are so much into there work and have no time for their families, friends or not even for themselves. But here I’m not talking about US or India or any other country. I’m talking about Depression which itself a big tensed country, situated not in maps or in atlas but in minds of more than 121 million depressed people. Sadly, children are also part of it and surprisingly, we didn’t know about this fact.
But now, tick-tock, its time. Start paying attention towards your loved ones. They might not tell you what makes them unease. But you have to keep asking them again and again and again until they burst out in tears and tell you what’s so wrong with them. They are your people. Try to know them beyond your limits. Explore them. After all, they matter.
“What you can do when you find out that the person is in depression?”
1. First of all, ask them what makes them so depressed? When it started? Why it is bothering them so much?
3. Make them feel free & comfortable with oneself.
4. Do outings/hangouts with them very often. So that, they can get over it.
5. Do things which make them happy.
6. Help them in finding the solutions of their problems.
7. Make them to take proper sleep & diets.
8. Consult the doctor if the situation is worse.
Depression is like a war. Either you win or you win. No, I didn’t mistype . There is no way to lose. Losing shouldn’t be an option because you have to be like you used to be.
“And then we lived happily ever after”, this should be the perfect ending of every depressed person’s story.
Lastly, yes we’ve heard what they were saying through their silence.
Those smiles have been answered,
Those faces have been contended.
Those hearts are now living in the brightlight,
And those minds are cherishing their perfect delight.
