We are not as alone as we think. Reading this heading, I’m sure you assumed this was another Alien conspiracy theory. No, it’s not. In Life, we face so many difficulties, we start to believe we are alone or its peculiar to just us, so we slowly start to alienate ourselves. You even start to question your friendship ethics or the true allegiance of your friends. The truth is, if you don’t speak out and ask for help you would never know how many people are struggling with the same thing.
Now, this is not about suicide, this is about the depression that may or may not lead to suicide. I spoke to a friend today who was explaining some of the problems he was facing and how his thought process was coping. Strangely enough, I kept finishing his sentences (and no, we aren’t in a relationship). It just goes to show, if he never spoke up, he would assume he was alone, not knowing at some point in my life I was going through the same thing. It’s easy for people to ask, ‘what do you like doing, what do you enjoy’? Never feel pressured to answer. If you don’t know you don’t know, if you’re not certain, that’s that about that.
I was and still am at a phase in my life where that question confuses me. I enjoy so many things, I want to do so many things and I believe I can thrive at so many other things. Societal standards are the worst, and the day I said to myself ‘ fuck it’ was the day I began to enjoy real happiness and freedom. Never feel tensioned to have it all figured out. If you’re trying and things just can’t get right, chill. Answers will come to you when they need to come, when the time is right.
You are never alone, speak out, ask for help, learn to confide, you’d be surprised how many people are in the same situation or feel the same as you. Sooner rather than later, we would all be alright. Peace and Love.
