Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation depression is just like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side.

When someone is brave enough to talk to you about their mental health issues, their battle with depression & anxiety, 𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯 to them. Really listen.
You can help beyond the performative 'it'll get better.'

نہ جانے کون بے وجہ مسکرا رہا ہو؟
نہ جانےکتنے دکھوں کے ساتھ آپ کے لیے جی رہا ہو؟
نہ جانے کس کی مسکان کے پیچھے کتنا درد چھپا ہو؟
خودکشی اذیت ناک عمل ہے !
کسی کو الفاظ کے خنجر
یا عمل کی تلوار سے اتنا گھائل مت کرنا کہ وہ ٹوٹ کر پھرجڑ نہ سکے!#depression #MentalHealthMatters
