Forget Depression. Do your work!

I know! I know! Forgetting Depression? It’s easier said than done.

However, I’m not giving out any advice to forget it, but to act in disguise.

It is a well-known fact that thousands of people suffer from depression on a daily basis, but are too afraid to talk about it.

It takes away their enthusiasm and willingness to carry out day to day chores, pushing them harder into the pitfall of self-destruction.

Let’s see.

You are assigned a task at your work, or school, with a certain deadline, but you just can’t gather the energy or courage to start it.

Why? Because you think you are not capable enough to do it.

Well! Here are 4 easy ways to jump off your comfy bed right now to the worktable and complete the task you’ve been procrastinating about.

1. Stop Self-loathing

Before you even start with the negative self-talk, please stop!

Think about it – the person who gave you the task wouldn’t have assigned it to you if they didn’t confide in your potential.

It’s okay if you take longer than others to do something easy.

It’s okay if you feel down and need some time to relax. Take it. But don’t bash yourself for something you have no control over.

Accept that you are depressed and need to work hand in hand with it and get a hold on your life.

Keep yourself motivated.

2. Speculate the Setback

Look out for the obstacles in your way.

What could possibly make you run away from doing your work? Less time? Or unawareness about the task?

In most cases, you love the job. But the only major setback in this case is YOU – Your excuses. Your issues. Your procrastination.

Depression makes you want to run in circles meanwhile waiting for someone to stop you and hand you a glass of beer. It’s complicated.

Don’t let your setbacks make you forget why you started.

3. Divide and Rule

Break down the big task into smaller ones and accomplish them one by one at a time.

Suppose, you have an assignment for work, which is about 10 pages, but you are too depressed to even start.

What you can do is, write one page on Introduction first, then treat yourself for accomplishing it.

This will not only provide you with a sense of accomplishment, but also make it more fun.

Who says you must finish it in one go?

Do as you please, with your own pace, because that’s what makes you – YOU. But make sure to complete it before the deadline.

Give yourself enough credit for trying.

4. Remember the Outcome

Never start anything without considering the results.

What if completing the assignment makes you feel content in the end? Or completing the project brings you one step closer to your promotion or big raise?

You’ll work harder to achieve these results, won’t you?

Always remember that there are people dying out there to get the opportunity that comes free to you. Please appreciate it and give your best.

To sum up –

Just be yourself. Understand your reasons for the unwillingness to perform. Work on them while taking short breaks, if needed. Plus, don’t forget the amazing rewards.

I hope you pick yourself up before falling into the darkness instead of waiting around for someone else to do it.

So, go on and START! 🙂

I thought, you might want to read this as I’ve been talking with writers who are feeling the same way like I did when I wrote this.

A day of bad writing is always better than a day of no writing. – Don Roff

This was one of the highly inspirational quotes about overcoming writer’s block that I came across while searching for a push for me to write. It’s been quite a long time that I haven’t written something worth reading.

As a matter of fact, the ‘Add Title‘ block is staring at me with a ridiculous smile, mocking me for my unawareness about the subject I’m trying to write about. But for now, let’s not think about a topic, and just focus on letting out some emotions.

Over time, constantly blaming my schedule for being unable to write had become my favourite excuse for getting out of ‘please write more’ requests. Maybe because I could say it, hoping no one would judge me for my inability to scribble.

After all, opting disguise over ranting has always been my motto in life.

I would, like anyone else, act as if everything was fine even when it wasn’t. All the pretentious smiles when the heart kept bleeding inside.

I wonder who taught us to fake our feelings when we could just be real and make our life as simple as it could be. But who am I to complain? I’m one of the culprits too.

I remember strolling on the terrace back home, believing life was beautiful.

Merely looking at the stars, admiring the moon and feeling the cold breeze was my pure delight.

I was smitten by the view of evenings turning into night, the raindrops escaping the overcast sky, and the warmth of the sun rays falling on my face in winters. That’s what peace was for me.

I was an unconfined early morning bird which kept chirping irrespective of the number of people listening.

I was least bothered by what words I used and which feelings I expressed.

But now, I see people building up their expectations about me and my writing. They tell me to showcase the so-called “talent” that I have.

But how will they know that it’s not a talent? It’s not a power. It’s just pure love. And we don’t brag about love.

We can only feel it. And if you can feel the power of words, then you possess a talent worth sharing.

The life that I am living right now is no less than a luxury. No no.. not what you think. No big bungalow, black Maserati, or diamond rings. I don’t need materialistic things to make my life complete, of course. I’m royal in my own way.

I’m royal in the writers’ world.

Having millions of thoughts, thousands of words, hundreds of stories, and a truckload of feelings are my treasured possession.

Then, why would I surf the internet for motivation to write?

Well! I don’t need a reason to write for myself but the will to pen down words publicly.

Anyway, I found a way to cope up with this –

Keep Writing, No Matter What.

I’ve always had my doubts about posting my work because I used to think that nobody can understand me.

But then, I found a soul mate who continuously motivated me to write and became a reason for my immense love for words; my human diary.

However, I’ll talk about that person some other day. And for today, I conclude my ‘bad writing’ with a quote that I hope we all can live by.

A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper. – E. B. White

10 signs of a Depressed Person.

In my previous post, I talked about Depression, and how the mindset of an Individual works when he/she is most likely to become a prey of depression.

I apologize for using the term ‘depressed people’ like they are any different, but I had to be more specific. I hope you understand. 🙂

I would highly recommend you to read that before we can talk about the possible symptoms.

Even though it is quite difficult to comprehend what goes inside the mind of a person, there are a few signs that can help you assess if someone is on the verge of slipping into depression or already trapped.

1. Excessive Sleep

A person suffering from depression will sleep all day long, or at least pretend to be asleep to avoid interactions.

They are addicted to their alone time, lying in their bed, with windows and curtains shut, earphones plugged in , and listening to Changes by XXXTentacion or some other sad songs.

They might tell you that they feel peaceful while listening to this music, but you must be aware that these songs are just pulling them more into the black hole of depression.

2. Sleep Deprived

Depression takes away the ability of people to relax and have a good night’s sleep.

They are up all night, wondering what went wrong, why they aren’t good enough, and what not. Night-time is the most active time of their life.

Being an insomniac doesn’t validate your depression. But if you voluntarily stay awake to think about what happened with you 2 years back at a public event, it is a major reason of concern.

3. Staying Indoors

There is no better comfort like home. Avoiding social gatherings and public events is completely fine.

However, procrastinating about meeting friends and family is not okay. Because if their loved ones aren’t aware of their situation, they’ll probably end up stuck in the deep pitfall. And no one can save them.

There can be two reasons why they don’t talk to or visit their friends –

Unwillingness to face their loved ones, to avoid bothering them for their personal concerns.

Inability to explain their pain, because they themselves don’t understand how they feel.

If you are introverted soul who loves to stay back home just to spend some quality time with yourself, like me, you are not depressed. It’s healthy.

4. Frustration

Short-tempered people are more likely to be undergoing a turmoil of emotions.

I understand, if this is a part of your personality or zodiac sign, but talking back or yelling at your friends, or family to be specific is just not an excuse to say “I’m like this, I can’t change”.

Their tolerance power keeps deteriorating with time. They can see themselves hurting their loved ones, which ultimately digs a deeper wound in their own hearts because they can’t do anything about it.

So, they end up pushing their closed ones away.

5. Overthinking

We all are over-thinkers, voluntarily keeping ourselves busy in unproductive self-talk and issues.

But at some point of time, we have to stop ourselves from thinking too much about the past or the future because it ultimately ends in self-doubt.

If you are capable of standing your ground for not going out to parties, or not sleeping at night, then you might as well try to overthink productivelythink in excess, but only about things that can help you grow.

6. Anxiety

When we read the word ‘Anxiety’, our immediate thought process goes into the time when we first attempted public speaking.

Well, that is nervousness – a sudden rush of emotions when you are extremely scared of the consequences of an event whereas anxiety is the physical trauma one goes through as a result of unwanted stress.

Anxiety is a whole another issue that needs an in-depth understanding of the reasons why a person feels this way. A person turns toxic, and his/her inability to comprehend the situation leads to personal trauma and self-doubt.

7. Criticism

At one point or other in our lives, we all have witnessed ourselves in this scenario, and we have hated it.

Always saying mean things to people who want nothing but good for us is one of the most wicked things that comes out of depression, which brutally damages the respect that they have for themselves, because they fail to find the courage to apologize.

Such people have a million of inner insecurities that make them question every positive thing that happens to them, just to turn it into a bubble.

8. Lack of Confidence

There are some people who allude confidence like it’s no big deal, while others have a little (OK, a lot) of trouble putting their feet on the ground.

And it’s completely fine because we all are getting to know ourselves, which is opposite of what people in depression do.

They have a fixed mindset that nothing can be changed, which is okay because if they could change it, they would. But the point is – their confidence level drops because no one tries to level it up.

9. Always tired

People tend to be exhausted when they’ve been a part of some heavy physical activity or a stressful day at work or school.

However, some people are tired, without any specific reason. Their ultimate excuse for not smiling or talking is “I’m tired, please don’t talk to me right now.”

In reality, they are tired of themselves feeling this void, extremely sick of fading out in the crowd that they avoid interactions altogether.

10. Complex Appetite

Last but not the least, the food intake suggests a lot about how a person is feeling.

Sometimes, a person doesn’t eat much because he/she doesn’t feel like eating, but the fact is that food is our basic need and if someone refuses to eat then there must be a solid reason behind it.

Overeating, not eating anything, sudden lose/gain in weight are the only visible signs that can help us identify if a person is in need of help.

Conclusion

Humans are complicated but they always leave a few hints to see if someone cares enough to pay attention. If you care about the people in your life, please try to observe these signs in them.

If you find anything odd in their behavior, please try having a conversation with them ASAP. Your one act of kindness can save a person from failing in their own eyes.

If you or someone close to you is suffering from depression, or feeling low – Reach out to me at myserenewords@gmail.com.

I’d be happy to help.

Stay Tuned.

Dealing With Depression.

Hello beautiful people.

Before you start reading, I must tell you that this would’ve been a long post, so I split it into small parts for you to get a clear picture and an in-depth knowledge of what we’re talking about here.

All I want is to share everything that I know about depression and how to deal with it.

Please read, share and save a life.

The more we try to avoid talking about it, the more it gets into our head. I’ve seen people on the peak of their careers who failed to overcome depression and ended up committing suicide.

I’ve always written about self-love when I should have been writing about the reasons why it is so difficult for people to fall in love themselves. And depression is one of the most disturbing and vicious of all.

It’s been quite a long time that I’ve been talking to people about what’s bothering them, and there are a few things that are common for all.

Before I dig deep into those things, let me start off by explaining the real meaning of depression, and the mindset of an individual having suicidal thoughts.

What is Depression?

I’ve read a share of articles that describe depression as a feeling of loss and fear. Some of them stated depression as an emotional disorder. However, it is much more than just a condition of mood swings.

We’ve all been there, but we made it out of the pitfall whereas some couldn’t. So, it’s our responsibility to help them out.

It starts with “I’m not good enough” and ends up in taking up our lives. If you see these signs in someone, please ask them to reach out for help.

I’ve had enough conversations with people suffering from self-doubt, who were not at all willing to talk it out as they believed that people would judge them or will make fun of them. Honestly, I don’t blame them for thinking this way.

There must be a reason why they feel like being attacked for expressing their feelings, which is heartbreaking.

No one is born with depression. It’s this fucked up society that has made them question their worth.

The point is that it is more about the people surrounding the depressed person, rather than someone who is suffering. We are so self-involved that we often forget to ask our near and dear ones about their emotions.

We are extremely busy in our lives, I know, but what about the people we love who have no one except you to talk to? If we’re not there for them, who will?

If you want to help someone, the first thing you need to understand is the thoughts that go through their mind, which I’ll be talking about now.

Mindset of a Depressed Person

When someone seems overly complicated, lost and seeks an answer for their overthinking and questions, that person is going into depression. It is more than just feeling sad over a breakup.

Their world is constantly sinking. They are more prone to living in the dark than go out for a walk. Even if they go out with friends, the moment they re-enter their home/room, their world starts falling apart.

They have had pretty bad experiences, which made them less trusting and silent. They’ve spent countless days questioning their worth and nights crying over why they aren’t good enough.

They have no clue why they’re feeling such emotions, so please don’t tell them that “It will be fine” because it’s easier said than done for them.

One moment they are over the top, feeling life, and the other second, their whole world comes crashing down. All they want to do is stuff their heads into their pillow and cry out.

Merely telling them to “Stay calm”, “Everything will be alright” or “Have faith in God” does not help, at all.

They don’t need solutions to overcome this feeling, but a trustworthy person who could just listen to what they have to say, without any judgments.

Please be this person for them 🙂

Writing about this was so damn important to me, because I can’t see my closed ones or their loved ones suffer due to something that isn’t even their fault in the first place.

A single thought of losing my family members or friends because of depression, scares me to death and almost had me in tears.

Please ask your friends, siblings and even your parents if something’s bothering them.

Don’t think about it as a difficult conversation but something that would save time and endless emotional devoid of your loved ones.

Look out for these signs.

Sometimes, people don’t feel like talking to their friends or families about their real emotions due to the fear of coming out as over dramatic, clingy or being a pile-on.

People suffering from depression are the kindest human beings. They’ve been through so much, but they won’t let their emotions ruin your day, which is why they don’t express their emotions to you.

So, they turn to strangers. And I request you to be a kind and loving stranger for them to talk to.

Be there for them, or just redirect them to people who can help.

If you or someone close to you is suffering from depression or having suicidal thoughts, please contact me on myserenewords@gmail.com for a conversation.

I’d be happy to help.

Stay tuned.

13 Breathtaking Sky Images of India.

Well, hello there!

Before you go through the pictures, I would like to protect my integrity by saying that I’m not an actual photographer.

If you’re wondering why I added this blog in the writer’s essence, let me answer you.

As a writer, our main aim is to write what we feel, what we see, and what we can possibly think of. Being a Nature Lover, I look for inspiration in the lifeless things filled with a vibe that can’t be named.

I’m just an admirer of Sky in different colors. I’ve been quite homesick lately as I’m miles away from my family.

So, I decided to reminisce the old times by sharing a few images that always take me back home where I spent most of my evenings on the rooftop, gazing at the stars, feeling the cold breeze, scanning the sky, and observing my love — Moon.

I love to capture the beauty of nature as it is a soul therapy for me. It brings me peace. And I hope you feel the same.

PS- All the images are clicked from the rooftop of my house except Image 6 and Image 9.

Okay, now you can see. 😶

I hope these Images brought a much-needed peace of mind to you, as it did to me.

There is no real beauty more exotic than that of the Mother Nature.

Thank you.

I will post more of these soon. 🙂

30 Deep Relationship Lyrics by Taylor Swift.

Life is unpredictable, and relationships are the core of this uncertainty.

The beauty of emotional bonds is that we never really know what’s coming our way, and what tricks we can use to overcome the unwelcoming events.

For handling such a rush of emotions, we all need a mentor to help our relationships move smoothly.

One such mentor for me has always been Taylor Swift.

I’ve been trying so hard not to post anything out of the box on my website, but couldn’t help my urge to post about her words that got me through my teenage life, and still working out great.

She’s got something for everybody- breakup, pain, love, life, self-love, motivation, writing and so on.

She’s been my inspiration to write for so long that I had to do something for her as a tribute. Her words hold meanings deeper than it seems, and I adore her for everything that she is.

So, I thought why not post some of her lyrics that I absolutely love. I hope you can relate and feel the emotions behind each one of them.

The ties were black, the lies were white.

I promise that you’ll never find another like me.

My mistake I didn’t know to be in love, you had to fight to have the upper hand.

You’re the king baby. I’m your Queen.

I’ve got a blank space baby, and I’ll write your name.

You got your share of secrets and I’m tired of being the last to know.

I can’t say ‘Hello’ to you and risk another ‘Goodbye’.

Say you’ll see me again even if it’s just in your wildest dreams.

All I think about is how to make you think of me.

I start a fight ’cause I need to feel something.

I knew you were trouble when you walked in.

He told me I looked beautiful when I was a mess.

We’re never getting back together.. like ever.

You drove us off the road.

I’ve been picking up the pieces of the mess you made.

People like me are gone forever when you say goodbye.

You never loved me, or her, or anyone, or anything.

You call me up again just to break me like a promise, so casually cruel in the name of being honest.

I know you by heart and you don’t even know where I start.

You tell me that you love me, then cut me down.

I never planned on you changing your mind.

I’ll put his picture down and maybe get some sleep tonight.

When I left, I wanted you to chase after me.

You held your pride like you should’ve held me.

He poisoned the well. I was lying to myself.

Nothing lasts forever but this is getting good now.

Why’d you had to go and lock me out when I let you in?

I once believed love would be burning red, but its golden like daylight.

I never knew I could feel that much, and that’s the way I loved you.

She’ll never know your story like I do.

Thank you for going through my collection of favorite lyrics by her. Will come up with more of these later.

Do let me know about your favorites too.

Keep swifting. ❤

10 Self-love Quotes to Motivate You.

As tiring as it sounds, trying real hard to fit in the crowd is quite exhausting. It’s soul-crushing to see ourselves struggle while others smoothly receive what they want.

Such a rush of emotions is quite common when people are busy seeking the approval of others to be themselves.

And if you’re reading this, I believe You are one of them.

Well, that’s OKAY.

Below are 10 quotes that I wrote for myself when I felt dragged down in a pitfall, forbidding me to move an inch.

But as wonderful as life is, it gave me words that lifted me up to see a far better world.

So, here I’m providing you with the same aid that helped me fall in love with myself.

Quote 1

The calmest I’ve been in my own skin. The bravest I’ve been in my own eyes.

You’ve been fighting your battles in silence, all by yourself. You know better what you are. You picked yourself up when there was no one around.

There’s no point in asking for validation from people who are not aware of your struggles when they are already busy in enduring their share.

Stay content in being yourself.

(Read Survivor – poetry about self-love)

Quote 2

Craving the warmth of your soul, I ended up falling for mine. Somehow, this was all I needed.

Your self-doubt comes from a place where you didn’t receive the love that you kept asking for, which made you question your worth.

But you deserve better than crossing oceans for unworthy love when you can stay where you are, and let the right ones love you for you.

Treasure the heartbreaks.

(Read You – poetry about self-acceptance)

Quote 3

Come closer, and you’ll see the depth in my eyes. Walk away, and you’ll feel my strength within that lies.

You are Fire. When you love someone, you shower them with all the warmth in your heart to calm their cold and dark heart, to heal them, selflessly.

You are Ice. When someone brings more pain to you than love, you become the coldest of humans and let go. There’s no better revenge than moving on – Fact.

Always maintain the balance.

(Read She – poetry about women’s power)

Quote 4

You said you were bad at everything, but you gave up real good. Ironic, right?

You often indulge in negative self-talk. You keep complaining about things that are difficult for you to operate, expecting others to say otherwise.

There’s a whole lot of things that you know you can do, but you waste your time getting acceptance from others. Why?

Do it before getting their affirmatives.

(Read Shooting star – poetry about self-love)

Quote 5

Use your time on growth instead of planning revenge and strong comebacks.

You are so busy generating ideas to let the other person feel bad for losing you, that you often forget the point of setback from a relationship.

The reason it ended was – You needed to level up your standards, not grab the attention of someone who didn’t value you when you lowered them.

Always prioritize yourself.

(Read Fly – poetry about self-love)

Quote 6

People keep pushing you down, because they are aware of your potential to reach heights.

You might think that they are your friends, who care about you and believe that your dreams are stupid. They stop you because your goals seem unachievable to them.

But your aims belong to you. If you believe you can do it, don’t let the opinions of some scared or jealous comrades doubt your capabilities.

Have faith in yourself.

(Read Look out – poetry about self-reflection)

Quote 7

Let the roots of your existence spread in the world’s barren ground.

You were sent in this world to create an impact on people who needed a vision. You have a gift of an abundance of love and acceptance inside you.

Think of the world as a place where no one knows what you know. So, give them what you have to offer, without the fear of getting rejected.

Stay true to yourself.

(Read Comfort – poetry about self-love)

Quote 8

You keep pretending for the sake of social acceptance, and complain nobody gets you.

You post lavishing pictures and act cool because you want to be popular. But what’s the use, if you have to be someone that you are not?

You might burn the ethnicity of your fellow users into ashes, but no one will know how bad you slept last night with the tears streaming down your face.

Stay real. It’s easy.

(Read Reflection – poetry about self-love)

Quote 9

Why hate your own self for what you truly are?

You keep stuffing your heart with self-hatred and negativity that even others fail to understand why they would fall in love with you in the first place.

If you keep pushing yourself in the dirt, how can others think of you as pure? Talk to yourself the way you would want others to talk to you.

Start valuing yourself.

(Read Hope – poetry about overcoming self-doubt)

Quote 10

Stars never doubt their shine. Then, why do you?

You’ve seen stars, right? Did you ever see them stop shining just because dark clouds covered them? I haven’t. I see them twinkle, far away.

That’s the beauty of being oneself. Never question your existence because there will always be someone searching for your wisdom.

Keep twinkling no matter what.

(Read Issues – poetry about self-love)

Your happiness lies in the person that you are becoming. Period.

You deserve all the love that you are ready to offer.

Keep loving every inch of you for you have what others can’t have. That’s your heart, your thoughts, and YOU.

Thank you for being your amazing self.

Keep being You.

Scribbler.

Have you ever wondered, if you had never written that first phrase of your poetry or the first sentence of your blog, how would your life have been right now?

Just a random human with built up emotions, unable to unload the sentiments because no one really cared enough to bother themselves to ask.

So, you penned down all the suffering, pain, love, complaints, everything you felt, because you started believing that venting in front of your ‘notes’ is way better than your own people.

How weird is this? People claim to love you and still fail to understand your insecurities. Instead of supporting you to feel more, they forbid you to feel anything at all. Because they think, you are overreacting or overthinking. Rude, isn’t it?

I remember the first time I wrote. I was 15. Even though it was just some random rhymes of a song that I got inspiration from listening to ‘Love Story’ by Taylor Swift, I received appreciation in an abundance from my family. It felt amazing, not because I had written something, but because I had my family to back me up. But it was a mere replication of something huge. So, I didn’t bother much and let it go.

Few years later, when I was a teenager, I felt so many emotions at once that I was scared of being lost in the depths of unwelcoming exposures of life. There was so much going on, like it would for anybody.

Through all that, I had my best friend. For 15 long years, she supported me at each step of my life. She scolded me when I was wrong. She would question my intentions for doing something that she wasn’t convinced for. She loved me, like no one ever would, selflessly.

I’ll forever be grateful for the love she has showered upon me, for I might have lost her to Cancer a few months back, but I think of her, every-single-day. I talk to her in my head when I’m confused, frustrated, happy, sad, funny, loving, or anything.

If you’ve read my blog Words, you would know that I talked about her, my soulmate. She made me believe I could write. When I heard about her demise, all I could think of was the lessons she taught me. She always believed in my potential, but my setbacks on writing would make her conscious.

So, one thing she asked me not to give up was – writing.

And this time, I won’t. I promise.

If I hadn’t started writing, if I hadn’t felt the pain to express myself, I would have never been able to know how beautiful I felt when I got praised for my words. And I’m thankful to her, for making me feel this magnificent feeling.

Someone admiring you solely for your thoughts, your words is such a rare occasion. Trust me, this is one of the most wonderful feelings one can feel, because of writing.

So, if you ever decide to give up, or feel you’re not meant to write, please think about why you started writing. Think about the pleasure and solace that writing provides you and your heart. Think about people who love reading your work to know you more.

They believe you are unique for what you are and what you feel.

Don’t let them down.

Keep scribbling.
