Depression

Standard

 

For those who don’t know the full extent of what depression is… it is not an emotion that manifests only when circumstance presents an unfortunate causation, to then fleet away when the cause and circumstances change. It is the occurrence of unbalanced chemical activity in the brain which may spark sudden and unexpected severe mood changes that do not warrant cause or circumstantial stimuli. However, cause and circumstance can worsen the effect of depression. So the next time you see a friend or loved one hurting in a depressive state, don’t ask them “what’s wrong?” or “what happened?”.

Instead, probe to find out what you can do to make them feel better. Ask them if they would like to build a hidden fortress out of blankets, ask them if they’d like to help you demolish a bucket of ice cream while you tell them fun stories or memories. Be a friend… not just another face in the crowd who doesn’t try to understand.

Job Depression

Standard

When you first start working at a place you really wanted to, you do your best, go above and beyond and take pride in your work. But then things get monotonous, leadership fails you, and you find that your co-workers have nothing to do but talk bad about each other.

You then think of your first day and what lead to this very moment. Then you stop giving your all, stop going above and beyond and you stop taking pride in your work. You imagine scenarios in your head about the moment when you tell your boss you’re resigning with a big smile on your face; but soon this smile will fade away as you realize you don’t have an alternative job as it is hard to find a new job in a bad economy. The picture of your family at your desk reminds you of obligations, mouths to feed, and taxes to pay, so you decide to swallow your pride and continue doing this shitty job by putting a fake smile every morning and pretending you will be okay.

Why the world doesn’t want you to be happy

Standard

I’m going to share with you a snippet of Matt Haig book’s “Reasons to stay alive”, this is very thought provoking about how the world manipulate our minds, I would like to know your opinions about this matter.

The world is increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more? How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturizer? You make someone worry about ageing. How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about immigration. How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything. How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws. How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out. How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind. To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence. To be comfortable with our messy, human selves, would not be good for business.

Prisoner of Time

Standard

Time has locked her in a cage

Where paradise never change

Sarcastic illusions of minds
Whispering closely into the shadows
Waiting the night born up in pieces

No one was there at the right time
The unbearable hours
Standing in half, between past and future

Collecting memories of photographic time
Infinitive request of darkness
Chaotic equations disable dimensions

Time has locked her  on a cage
Where illusions had never been changed

(dedicated to someone dear to me)

A Broken wing bird

Standard

You are a broken wing bird

Trapped inside this self-made cage

Despite putting your beautiful Mona Lisa smile

Happiness has become a foreign feeling for you

And you’re sinking into a quagmire of your past

Your life now is an endless train of suffering

You’re breathing but I feel as if you have passed away

In fact, I met your ghost yesterday

And I realized how I much I miss the old you

Please come back to me

I won’t allow you to be consumed by the flames of your hell

The world is a beautiful place with you in it

I can’t change your past

But together we can start the life journey all over

You’re Breaking My Heart

Standard

You’re breaking my heart when I see

Your beautiful smile bents out of shape

You don’t look at me when I ask you “how are you”

But I don’t need your fake smile to know

There is a war waging inside you

And the world has collapsed on you

I can’t make you laugh anymore

All I want to do is making you feel loved

Just grab my hand and let me pull you

From that cliff that you have been standing on for so long

Don’t you know that I will run through fire for you?

Together, we will fight your demons

Just open up to me, don’t be afraid

It doesn’t matter how many time you will trip and fall

I will be there for you to pick you up

And to wipe every tear

You are not alone, I will always be there for you

Just let me be the key to your lock

I wish you could see yourself through my eyes

(This poem is dedicated to someone dear to me who’s suffering from depression)
