Tomorrow is the ‘Mental Health Day’. I would love to speak my heart out in accordance of this day.
What mental health means? Why mental health is so important? Is mental illness means you’re mentally retorted? And why we need to focus on mental health issues?
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Mental health problems are common but help is available. People with mental health problems are not mentally retorted. People with mental health problems can get better and many recover completely.
Being a victim of psychological problem, I have been through a roller costar of emotions. I know exactly how it feels like. I know how it feels when you find a no way out. I know how it feels when you keep thinking about your failures and problems. I know how it feels when you think you’re worthless, hopeless and helpless. But there’s no magic which can give you a peace of mind. It only gets better when you get better.
When life knocks you down, you lose your worthiness, hopes and dreams. You expect from people around you to pick you up and show you how much important you’re to them and how much good you can do in your life. But instead of getting all of this you face disappointment and criticism. People mock you in front of your face. And you lock up yourself into a cage of misery and disappointment. And then you need a star to lighten up your dark clouded life but you know what there no star except YOU is. You can lighten up your whole life in a single blink because you don’t know how much spark and light you’re holding into yourself. Depression, Anxiety and stress all these are nothing more than mind games.
When I was suffering from all this I felt I have lost the meaning of life and this darker phase is never gonna end. I felt that I’m the most useless and worthless person in the whole while world. I’d spend months and years thinking about what I’ve lost in my life and what I was unable to achieve. But one day, I realized that no one is suffering with all this except me. Everyone is doing its job and life is moving on and I’m still holding onto those things which happened to me in the past and I can’t change them. One thing I can do for myself is to make my today a better place to live in.
To all those who are going through all these psychological traumas, just remember one thing, you are not alone suffering from all this. There are billions of people out there who are nothing more than just like you. Don’t get affected so easily by the temporary situations and temporary traumas. I know bad incidents and traumas left a deep mark on your life but everything is temporary and there’s no door in the world without a key. So, find your door and unlock with its key because you have much to do in your life. You’re special and your life is precious. Don’t waste it over having regrets and disappointments. Fill your life with happiness and beautify it with love, courage and patience.
To all those who don’t have any psychological problem, just be kind to the people around you. If you’re not facing any of these problems it doesn’t give you a right to mock people who’re suffering. Don’t hard to them. If you can’t be helpful to them then leave them alone and stay quite instead of enjoying their pain. Try to avoid the verbal abuse and be helpful. This little effort of yours could make someone’s life better.
