“Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.” ― Stephen Fry
As I was reading articles about depression, I pass through this quote. Only a few people understands depression, the pain is not about the wound that bleeds but the sorrow of the soul that is in deepest pain. Kindness is what a depressed person needs. Being there with them just beside them, no words to speak is enough, a hug is much better to calm a raging spirit.
I too is trying to overcome this, the smile that is painted in my mouth to show my children that I am fine because I don’t want them to worry. The wit that I show in my job, the laughter that is hollow and the answer to every question “I am fine” are my greatest show to convince them I am fine, but if they only look through my eyes they will see what is inside me.
Only a few messages me, only a few understands me. Struggle is real. Thanks virily, I got to share what I am going through.
