Why we need to talk about Depression

The speech was really well expressed and said, because it showed that depression, panic attacks and anxiety are not signs of being weak, they are signs that a person has been strong for too long. Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain but it is more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden. It is easier to say, “My tooth is aching” than to say, “My mind is torn apart”. Depression is a stage where you keep a lot to yourself because it's hard to find people who understand. Although, it is not just that because depression is being scared of yourself and of accepting yourself the way you are. It doesn’t happen when you are sad because things in your life don’t happen the way you want them to be, it happens when things in your life go perfectly. Depression is being colourblind and being constantly told how colourful the world is. It is being treated like an infectious disease that has no importance in this “perfect” world that people believe in. Well, it is not an infectious disease, it is like a sickness that doesn’t leave you in the same state that you were before, it changes you and you live in it for the rest of your life. It’s an issue, but not your identity, and once you get past all the factors that brought it upon you, you see depression for what it is; and it's a part of life.
