I was watching a series in the afternoon today, just laying on my bed and laughing and jumping. Just then my brother came to me and asked "have you seen the news? It's about Sushant Singh Rajput" I WAS SHOCKED AND CONFUSED. I had no idea what he was talking about, so I googled. What I saw, broke my heart. Literally I was, I am shattered. I adored him alot. I was a fan since I first watched him on a dance show, I used to vote him for every performance. He was going through a severe depression, he committed suicide. I didn't know what to do. So I let those tears flow. He was one of the most down to earth actors. He was simple. In every role, he was perfect as if it was made for him. It always feels like we are having this inner battle inside, us versus the reality. We think we can depression on our own, sometimes we do, sometimes we don't/can't. Committing suicide doesn't make you less brave, it's brave, its like euthanizing yourself. What's done is done.
But trust me, what if we decided not to euthanize ourselves? There will always be struggles. Struggles will always be overpowering and overwhelming. We will have that fight always. We have to live everyday, and give our previous day a competition. Sometimes we will loose, sometimes we will win. DEPRESSION IS NOT OUR ENEMY. ITS OUR FRIEND. We will have to walk hand in hand. It's our greatest win. Because you know why? The ones who suffer from mental illness are the strongest people. People fight withs other people. BUT fighting with yourself and winning or accepting yourself is the biggest fight one can achieve. Stay strong.
