Depression is real. At times it even results to suicidal thoughts that can actually result to a person committing suicide. Just because a person appears to be happy, does not mean that they are truly happy. Many people hide their pain behind their smile. Just because a person is wealthy and can buy just about anything that their heart desire, does not mean that person can buy true happiness. Just because a person is “popular” or well liked by others, does not mean that person like his or her own self.
At times it may be difficult to determine what someone is going through if that person is not a person who discuss things that are bothering them. We as friends, family, & etc. need to start taking the initiative of determining whether or not our loved ones are experiencing depression. If someone you are close to is starting to distant themselves from EVERYBODY for a long period of time and you know for a fact that this person has not been in any communication with anyone. Don’t turn your back so soon. Try to reach out to that person. Make sure nothing traumatic has happened in that person’s life such as losing their job, losing a significant other, the death of a family member, financial situations & etc. Now if the person has decided to remove certain people out his or her life in order to prosper or progress, that’s a different story and all you can really do is just simply wish them well. If you ever truly loved and cared about a person, you will be able to determine which is which in no time.
Lets not wait until it’s too late to reach out and tell someone in our life how we may feel about them. If you see a person holding his or her head down and may have a sad look upon his or her face, it would not hurt to speak to that person and say “hello” or even “have a blessed day”. Small simple things like that can really change a person’s mood or even life knowing that someone in the world may care about them. There’s a lot of people in this world who feels that the world is against them and they have nothing to live for but that is not even close to the truth. Everyone has a purpose in life. Someone in this world truly care and love you. Even if you believe that the only person who loved and cared about you the most was taken away from you, spiritually that same person still loves and cares about you. That person becomes your guardian angel and I guarantee that person will always want to see you’re doing your best even though you both can’t see or touch each other.
Prayer, Communication & Time is the three components that every person needs in his or her life. Despite what your religious beliefs may be, praying to some sort of higher power will make things better especially when you’re using your prayers realistically. If you’re experiencing financial problem, praying for a million dollars and actually expecting a million dollars to fall into your hands is not realistic However, if you are actively searching for a job on a daily basis and praying that you receive a call from a potential employer is more realistic. Communication makes a person feel better as long as it’s with the right person that you are communicating with. Even if you have to write your thoughts in a journal or diary, that’s still some form of communication you are experiencing, it just happens to be with yourself. I must warn you, if you believe your best form of communicating with others is through social media, be aware that someone will comment and inquiry about what is going on with you, therefore do not be mad and take offense to it. Like the old saying goes, “time heals all wounds”. You may not want to hear that in the beginning stage of your sadness/depression/pain but always keep it in mind. Although deep down inside you may be hurt forever but in reality, you won’t be feeling that exact same way as time goes on. All those restless/sleepless nights will eventually fade away. You will be able to sleep again even if it’s with a face full of tears. Don’t get me wrong, take as much time as you may need to heal but never think for a second things will get easier if you just take your life away…Don’t You Dare Give Up!
