Hello, people out there! Good Morning.
Yesterday was a black day. We all were absolutely shocked and devastated to hear about the miserable demise of a young, talented and versatile actor, Sushant Singh Rajput. He has left all of us with a question- How many of us are strangled with life? Can we be more humane so people with heavy hearts feel enough close, we don't keep ourselves to ourselves? Mental health and emotional wellness are realms often undervalued. Appearances are often misleading. Transparency has evolved from taboo to infamy.
I wish he discussed his mental health with family, friends, or even well-wishers. Guys, please hear me out!
It's okay to feel sadness.
It's okay to feel depressed.
It's okay to say 'NO'.
It's okay to let things go.
But, when you feel all alone and depressed, please feel free to consider sharing your mental indisposition with dear ones.
Life is crazy. And has been even crazier in the last couple weeks. Our minds have been racing, we've been rushing to figure out what will happen to our jobs, businesses, family, health, and everything in between. Mental health issues are common and are just like any other physical health conditions. Depression is real. Anxiety is real. Don't ignore your mental health. Your trauma is acceptable and substantial whether you've ever enunciated it or not. You deserve to be upset over it, but you also deserve to feel safe again. I hope beyond all else it doesn't derail your life, that it doesn't take good things away from you. But in some ways, it unavoidably will. In time, you'll heal. It'll fade. It'll hurt less. I hope you realize that we're all here for you even if you never feel pleased truly sharing it. You're braver and stronger than you think. If you're feeling apprehensive or depressed, try not to judge yourself for feeling like that as it can lead you to feel even more anxious or depressed and become a vicious cycle.
You may question the very purpose of life. You may feel unloved and may not find anything to love about that. These feelings are okay. Just don't keep them within yourself. Take professional help and talk about it. Give yourself some time to cry, mourn, grieve. Recovery isn't linear- slipping back is part of the healing process, so don't be so hard on yourself when it happens. Before you troll someone online or in person, please think thoroughly cause not everyone has the same emotional and mental level as you.
'Suicide is never an answer to your issues'. Communicate. That's the best thing anyone could possibly do. Out of the chaos, there's a hidden treasure just waiting to be divulged. You gain confidence in yourself by expressing what you've gone through or going through. It's also a great way to weed out those who aid you and those who don't. People can and will help you, you just need to search them out. And never ever let anyone or anything bring you down. There should be no fear. Mental health is something we all deal with. But now it's time to speak up and talk more openly about it so that everybody can feel more supported and exhorted to ask for help.
By opening up about what you're going through with others, you slowly become desensitized in a sense. The more you talk about it, you grow accustomed to those feelings in a manner that gives you control- something that we sufferers crave but hardly master. It takes vigor to talk about an intimate ordeal. There's always a peril of oversharing or making others embarrassed. This is especially true when talking about mental health. You control how much you feel comfortable sharing this and this gives you power. This empowerment is modest and it will open many doors for you. It's almost as if you're owning yourself. Yes, your experience is painful, manic, and tragic at times, but that all encompasses your being. There's no reason to punish yourself for mistakes. Lessons learned and now it's time to be empowered.
Let's us all eliminate the stigma on mental illness and seek treatment.
Sending all the stability, glint, warmth, and tenderness to everyone out there XX.
HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH
We lost yet another dedicated actor and a wonderful human to depression.
I still remember the time when I cried after watching his movie 'Kedarnath' on 7th Dec 2018. I rushed out of the theatre post-climax and started crying( this might sound weird, but that's what it was). He lived in the character and put in his thorough efforts in the film. 'Chhichhore' is the sort of film that we can all add to, with our own versions of the same story. And not just it, he told us the 'untold story of MSD' and let his own story be untold and chastised himself. We hadn't realized that the one who can top in the entrance exam and one who can crack the most difficult subject cannot combat depression. He hid a zillion emotions behind his smile. Isn't this actually heartbreaking? I do wish it weren't true. I wish we had a time machine. I wish we could undo all of this and start afresh. We all have failed as humans. Tears roll down my cheeks as I write this. How do we all accept the absence of a rising star?
Gone too soon. India mourns him.
I wish we could bring him back. I so wish.
In the loving memory of,
Sushant Singh Rajput
Lots of love and respect,
