Dealing with loneliness, heartbreaks and being different from your peers is not a hard thing after all. Everyday, we dodge precariously from the challenges in our world, masking all our feelings from the people around us. It is all about letting go and stopping yourself from brooding about the past and moving on to the future. Master the art of forgiving and forgetting, carry this skill with you throughout your life, and you will slowly realise that fitting in is not the most important thing in your life which you will have to be stuck dwelling about. Be yourself, let your true feelings show, and you will discover the wonders of friendship and family relationships.
Before plunging yourself into a ‘self-concocted’ depression, think about those who are much more unfortunate and relish every single day of life. Most importantly, discover the immense joy of bringing a smile to everyone’s faces. With that notion, you will be alright.
Hiding behind a delicately painted mask is a sign of weakness and lack of self-assurance. Within these shadows of quivering souls lies a common belief- that they have failed in life.
What actually is a failure in life? Getting low grades? Losing in a competition? The real failures are those who fail to harness and treasure what they already have, and moan on their shortcomings instead of trying to improve. These people will be caught in a standstill, hidden in their worries and pain, in hope of someone to get them out of this tempest of a storm.
However, it is a clear fact that no one can bring in help except yourself. Words of comfort drowns in your misery, continuous support taken for granted, time spent buried in the fading dreams of yours. This is all the help wasted if you do not make a change and put in effort to struggle out depression. It is a cold battle against yourself, and only the one with the strongest willpower will live to see the brighter days.
