"What is it that you're anxious about?", "Why are you this depressed?", "What is wrong with you?", "Why are you not even thinking about others who care for you?", "You have got everything working out for you, it is all in your head.", "You are just making this up." "Don't be this weak."
A few statements which a person with mental health disorder are bombarded with. It is often perceived that those with mental health disorders just want to attract attention and most of the times, they are made to feel guilty and weak for what they are feeling because the society thinks that it is their it's job to validate their feelings, if it is justified to feel anxious, depressed or whatever the feeling be but who are we even to judge? How can we judge?
Probably even they cannot figure out why they are feeling a certain way which happens in a lot of cases and you are just adding to the pressure.
"You cannot be anxious or stressed if you have everything running smoothly for you." In which rulebook is this rule mentioned? If you have a splitting headache and someone tells you that no, you are just making it up because everything is good around you and because the pain is not physically visible, does that make any sense to you?
We need to realise that we need to shut up and stop acting as if we know it all. If we cannot say anything to the person struggling to make things easy for them then the least that we can do is just listen without being judgemental. We might not even know the struggle they are dealing with. So, let's be less judgemental in life and make it better for others.
Is there a fox on the moon? Or is it a rabbit? Or may be a toad according to the Chinese culture.
How many stories there are for single rotating object in space around the earth?
How many falsified stories you tell yourself for things you have done presumptuously?
This tradition of storytelling is as beautiful as painting a canvas, but instead of paints and stuff you are using words.
You want answer? Take a look at yourself. Deep dive inside your universe. Go in that dark spot of your mind, go to that garden in your heart full of flowers on one side and the broken glass house on the other side. Tell me where is that candy house in your universe? When you close your eyes and start travelling in your universe tell me if your moon shines as bright as you thought it would. Tell me if it feels like rain when you are standing in the bright moonlight.
Tell me if there is a rainbow because of the moonlight, and would it be so difficult to walk on that rainbow to get to the moon.
My most loyal companion you ask? Moon is the answer with no hesitation. And I love the both sides of it. Equally.
Do you explore the dark side of your moon? It doesn't appear that doesn't mean it simply ceases to exist.
You see the same moon, you and I.
To the moon and further, remember?
