Trauma

Remind me of the child that I was

when the wind just meant air

with nothing more but oxygen that we breathe

and an urge to do something great;

a long list of big dreams.

Take me back to those corny days

when I got cornered by the witches

for being admired for my big brown eyes

that they couldn’t accept;

making me question my worth,

ended up bullying,

Remind me of how hard it was

to overcome the loss of my friends

who turned out to be nothing

but random people shattering me

like a glass as if I wasn’t a mirror

to show them their reality.

Remind me of that young girl

who was traumatized by judgments and

felt misunderstood in the huge crowds,

trying to figure out an escape

and leave everything behind.

Cut to the amazing person

that I forgot I have always been,

who now stands tall and straight

with her eyes on the prize

and the crown on her head

with nothing but victory on her mind.

Peace.

When the chaos of life overshadows me with the pain and misery,

I know there’s one person I can turn to in a blink.

Dreams tend to become the reality; I know

But who knew,

the reality would just get better than my dreams?

I imagined a life of calm and peace for me

And nothing short have I now recieved.

It’s not a fairytale.

Not some other disney princess crying for a prince.

Just a girl with an immense love for a guy

who never fails to treat her like a Queen.

My world has shattered into a millions pieces before

But I picked them up to become the new me.

Growth is about loving yourself,

But also to let others be there for you when you are in need.

I pushed people away for the sake of my sanity

But I realised; it wasn’t all about the crowd,

but my inner self who had lost the will to BE.

All this time, I wasted on loving others;

I forgot about the ones who were in love with me.

But I end this pattern now

and let him stand right next to me.

I see why nothing worked with others.

Why I wondered if I’ll ever get back what I give.

To be in love is all about staying with him

for better or for worse.

Tell me love,

Are you too at peace ?

Comfort.

So many stories to tell.

So much to write about.

Numerous situations,

just couldn’t get myself out.

Broken stars

craving embrace of the dark.

People begging

for the sake of their heart.

Countless people I met,

a few I pushed away

while others straight-away left.

Somehow,

I find myself

keeping my thoughts inside.

I wonder why,

knowing myself feels

way more comforting

than someone else claiming

they’ve been aware

all this while.

Heal.

And the pain suddenly faded away

with the words giving relief to my heart,

silent. But loud.

The wounds that I dreaded all day

have healed my bruised body;

immensely safe and sound.

The blood dripping down my face,

have now vanished away with the rhymes

that I kept chanting around.

The heartache which

once kept me awake,

now allows me to sleep;

deep & profound.

The unbearable emotions have now escaped

that were once confined in cages

and relentlessly bound.

The voices that I’ve always avoided

like the summer time sun rays

have become regular melodious sounds.

The peace that I would usually crave,

finally,

found me in a serene arena,

far, far away

from the erratic crowd.

Blessed to have been lost & played

for this was the ultimate way;

my origin was actually meant to be found.

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! 🙂

Disguise.

But here, only death surrounds. Wound

A new life awaits the dead.

Crumbled bones; loosened hopes,

Shaking and taking my breath.

The silence of the graveyard,

curtailing the beauty of the wreath.

Look into the grave,

See how far you’ve come; he said.

But here, only death surrounds.

Wounded and shattered souls all around.

“Can I stay with you tonight?

I’d rather be dead than alive.”

Alluring, as it may seem;

You’d want to live here forever.

For no one here feels, cries or talk.

No one here hurts, lies or mock.

But go astray.

Leave as soon as you can.

Because all this time I’ve lived here,

I’ve realized;

Sometimes, feeling broken is

way better than feeling nothing.

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’d like to conclude this post by quoting

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

Thank you.
