Reality: You Sure you can Face it?

All the wise words you hear on news, T.V shows or movies are just words yet they have enormous unconscious impact. You can be blindly optimistic if you think it helps you through hell, but let’s be real for a day. The old Bollywood cliche of unconditional true love, of tradition, ethics, culture, and the list goes on… If you look close Bollywood influence is weaved so deep into our skin that it’s unavoidable to perceive life otherwise.
These philosophies were not built in a day, but went through a long tiring construction process over time. Unfortunately when they hit reality these beliefs end up as nothing more than shattered tiny piece of glass. The glass we deemed the world through with all this time, never actually existed.

You talk about being real, relying on overworked phrases that love can’t be bought, or it lies in the heart. Life will keep on proving you wrong until you get it right. Yes the material is everything, yes the looks does matter, and yes the demon wins here.
Think the complete opposite of all you hear today, and you get it right. Free yourself from the fake beliefs as they are just way too heavy to walk ahead with. Whatever you were told about yourself, emotions, life, and heart is a fool’s trap. On the other hand you can trip over the same rock over and over again if you think it’s still fun.

You were NOT designed to fail. You were to rise above, to let go, to grow, to win, and to conquer. You were given intelligence not to lose yourself in to the tricks of the society that mislead you from the purpose of your existence.
The thirst for knowledge is legit and innate it would NOT be quenched through the works of art of the amazing society. It is the search for the limitless, timeless, as its own self. No wise words can make you hit the right road. Pay attention on your basic instinct as the soul is part of something greater. Sadly it gets buried under the temporary desires and over expectations in haste.

If the fighter gives up the struggle then they lose their own identity. Funny how you don’t even care to put up a fight to save yourself or the people who matter. What if the so called society made signs of affection, life, values, were not worth the price you pay?! What if your life’s purpose was greater than the Big Car, Big House or the Big NAME? Would you want to die with the thirst so great that your soul itself HATES you when it’s torn out of your body?

Google says Depression means a long and severe recession in an economy or market. Oops that’s not the definition we were looking for… Depression is a severe typically prolonged, feelings of despondency and dejection.
Now here is my definition of it, depression means you are HUMAN, that’s all.

First Aid comes from YOU!
It transforms fast, changing color, shape, size, pace, duration but Depression stays with you like a big fat greedy blood sucking leech. You learn to get along with the anxiety so well that you start to like it. Then you don’t want to get out of it as you become friends with your demons. The hardest part is: people in depression don’t want to be saved! Acknowledge that you can only be saved when you are ready to accept the change.
So no matter how hard your loved ones try to help, initially you would have to decide whose side are you on.

Don’t Panic
Most people think depression would eventually kill them, to be honest people who are depressed won’t get anything RIGHT, and that includes planning a suicide. Trust me you only end up discovering pretty dumb ways to die. I would swallow a bubblegum and hope it would stick inside my stomach entirely paralyzing all my body organs to function effectively. Thus would lead to a peaceful sudden death without a proof. I tried that in school a day before my Physics Exam.

 Avoid Pills
Never depend on antidepressants even if someone recommends them to you. Throw it back in their face and tell them you’d grow out of it on your own. Antidepressants only stop the messed up suicidal thoughts and sorrow by numbing your heart. As a result your heart won’t be able to get out of this trauma if you won’t let it fight through.

External Help
Depression only is a phase of life where you find yourself surrounded by negativity. The answer is right there if you read between the lines. The answer is POSITIVITY. I know it’s hard to stay positive when the whole world is against you including you yourself. It is simply the disconnection with your Soul and all the panic caused by the staunch urge for re-connection.
Therefore stay with people who are positive, who make you happy. Indulge yourself into fun filled constructive activities that keep you on your toes with enthusiasm. Dig you way back to the light that resides inside of you.

I hope you find your own hilarious dumb ways to die and have a fun filled crazy ride out of the depression. Let me know your side of the story and how you enjoy creativity along the way. However in the time of crisis, don’t try the ridiculous Bubblegum Suicide. IT DOESN'T WORK!
