I started writing back when I was 13 because I felt really disconnected with everyone around me. Kids my age couldn’t understand what I was going through and adults around me would shoo me away saying I was too young to be feeling that way.
I was really depressed then, as a kid I couldn’t comprehend my sudden breakdowns, my mood swings, weight loss and bad appetite. I started reading books, then I started reading articles and somewhere I read something that said “I write it on a piece of paper so its no longer inside me” and I did that. Ardently I wrote anything and everything that came on my mind. I addressed letters to people I couldn’t stand up against, though I never sent them I felt like I was over it. more like after writing it down, I felt so light and the need to send those vicious, hateful letters out was no longer there.
Eventually, I started writing on a regular basis, I then made this blog and started writing about random things, but I couldn’t really write about the thing that I am really concerned about. Depression and mental health.
I don’t know why but I couldn’t gather enough strength to write about my traumas and put it out to the world. Not that I was scared but because I didn’t want to run my thoughts into a direction I never wanted to go back again in. But somehow today I feel like addressing it all to the world because during this pandemic, I have seen people struggling with there mental health a lot. I even lost a loved one to bipolar disorder which is not same as depression.
So I’ve decided my next few blogs will be focused on the few very vulnerable issues. I’ll be talking about my own mental health, my struggle with depression and how I over came it and how it still creeps up sometimes. I’ll be talking about bipolar disorder, depression, and ways to cope up with everything.
I would love to have you people connected with me and to suggest me about all this and help me make it better. I would welcome any suggestion you have for me, and I would love to reach out to any friend of mine who is struggling with their mental heath and I’d also request you to please be a little more considerate towards people around you because we really don’t know how our little act of generosity and care can impact other people’s lives.
Stay connected for the next few blogs on this. 🙂
