Depression: A mental health disorder where both mind and heart stops working and all you feel is just grief and agony. Walls keep closing around you, Light starts haunting you and solace is all you crave.
Such a strong word, Isn't it? yet these people throw the term so casually that it has lost its wile and charm.
Let me tell you..
Depression isn't when you cry to your friends telling them how much it hurts. Depression is when you laugh till your breath rusts, without even knowing why you are laughing.
Depression isn't when you decide to skip your meals, depression is when you eat your ass out cause you don't know what else to.
Depression isn't when it hurts, Depression is when it bleeds yet you cannot feel the pain.
Depression isn't when you remove your DP from your social media, Depression is when you restain your own self because you don't want to face the world.
Depression isn't when you stop smiling, Depression is when you smile entire day, come back home in the evening, take off the smile you been wearing and cry yourself to sleep.
Depression isn't when you are at a bar, drinking your cocktail and recount your stories.. Depression is when you chug down a half of rum and dance your ass out on the floor without even listening to the music.
Depression is when you smoke till your lungs hurt, when you fight a war every time you shower, when you are scared to look yourself in the mirror and when you cancel your plans because you are tired of smiling. Depression is when you fall short of loving yourself.
This generation has changed the entire concept of depression. We all be sad for a day and claim to depressed. Depression is not a one day thing, Depression is the state of mind where you’ve lost all your hopes, You’ve given up. Depression is the phase even your shadow haunts you. This generation needs to see the thin line between being sad and being depressed. Everybody thinks they are depressed. Everybody thinks they have been fucked hard. Everybody thinks they've been through a lot. No mate, most of you haven't. You be reading too many depressive quotes and watching too many bollywood movies. So next time you say "I am depressed, I want to die", You need a tight punch on the face because Depression isn't when you tell people you will die. Depression is when you struggle every night to figure out a reason why you should live the next day.
