Feel the fear but do it anyway.

Sometimes small things scare us. First we stay in denial, then we delay in accepting it and then finally one day we deal with it.

From a very long time, I have not been uploading doodles or my writings on my blog because I’ve been afraid. It’s been a strange feeling. I’ve been afraid of being judged for my work and have also just wanted to put the best out for my readers.

Still a bit anxious, but uploading this doodle for you.. 🙂

P.s. Hope this quote lightens some of your monday blues. Do tell me how you feel about it. Also, share your experiences if you have ever faced a similar situation like mine.

The good old days.

Sitting in the balcony, me and my sister were discussing how fast the things have changed..

The time where we used to dance in the first rain shower, instead of updating  status on our social media about weather. 

Where we used to roam carefree without caring about our looks. 

Where going out to a fancy restaurant would mean spending some quality time with your parents, instead of showing off by clicking pictures or posting checkins. 

Where relationships are rated by the social media posts and heartbreaks take place on a phone call instead of having a real face to face conversation. 

When will we realize that our lives are incomparable to the people we stalk on Instagram?

Where are those good old days where we used to value our real life more than our virtual life?  

Where we find time for ourselves…

I am sure whenever we realize that life is beyond all these virtual things we will have a grateful attitude towards our life and surroundings

Will things ever change? #mentalhealthIssuesAreNotaTaboo

We sometimes ignore people’s messages when they want to talk to us. We call them names or crack jokes when they might be already upset with their lives. If they share their problems, we call them ‘rotlu‘. If they say they are depressed some of us shun them as if it’s a taboo. We forget we hung out with them in good times when we get too busy to be with them in their bad times…

We all have done such things sometimes.. either directly or even being a silent spectator to someone’s misery. Today we are shocked, tomorrow we’ll forget. đŸ˜©

This isn’t a one-off case. There have been many Sushants previously and there may be many like him in our circle too.

According to the WHO, 1 in every 4 person suffers from mental health issues. Sometimes children to sometimes elder people, people from humble background or the high-end class of society. Your class topper, office colleague, your doorman or maid, the guy next door. Anyone literally.

We are all posting about mental health. It’s great. Let’s put it in action. Let us be kind and compassionate. Let us be approachable.

And beyond social media, let us build true relationships with people who’ll hold our hands when things go wrong.
