Reality Of A Depressed Soul

I am extremely sad and furious at the way people are reacting on the suicide news of an Indian actor who is assumed to be suffering from depression.

I went offline yesterday and haven’t yet replied on my yesterday’s post after the news hit my ears. The death news did not shock me as much as the reason for his death did. I panicked when I read that he decided to end his life due to depression.

Though a lot is yet to be investigated but, there are many gurus and professional counselors who have rose to life to give lectures on depression.

I have seen a lot of stuff online since yesterday from different people talking the same shit, “Suicide is not the solution!” “What’s wrong with people!” “Why to kill yourself? Face life”


I have only one question to everyone of you. Have you ever been there?

No, you haven’t?

Let me try with a few more questions…

Do you fucking know what depression is? Do you have the balls to put depression into words? Can you?

No! You can’t! You can just judge someone who is no longer in this world! That’s all you can do.

Do you know what he went through? What were his challenges? Did he really speak with anyone about what he felt like? Do you know?

No, you don’t know! So stop bullshitting! Stop acting like you know everything in the world. Stop calling out people weak. Stop telling people to be brave and face life. You have no fucking idea what depression is!

For God sake, don’t try and act smart coz you’re not.

It’s like someone who has never been pregnant is giving lectures on what labour pain is! Someone who haven’t had sex ever in their life is sharing details on how it feels like!

Get it? Or still didn’t?


Okay….. Let’s put a twist to this – He asked for help. He did not get the help. He tried talking to people. They shooed him off, as though depression is not a reality. They laughed it off.

Now? What would you say?

Do you have an answer? Tell me!

And how dare you judge the one who couldn’t take it anymore???
Judge yourself. Not someone who couldn’t handle it.

Mad at me already? Well, I’ll tell you why do I say so.

A child is born. This child has no idea about anything in life – Good, bad or ugly. What does this world do, including the two people who wanted to have sex and probably were not even sure whether they even wanted a child or not?? Start pressurizing the child and judging them for good grades, skin colour, sports, this that, what not and the list is way too long….

Do people really want a child or a robot who dances as per their wishes???

Grow up a little and there is a constant need to look good and get a girlfriend/boyfriend. If a guy doesn’t have a girlfriend, you know very well what remarks are passed on him. You don’t know? Then okay, I will remind you, he would be mocked by saying probably he doesn’t get an erection to satisfy a girl.

Don’t you guys do that? Same is with girls as well. They too go through a lot of shit. Who puts them through this? You! The Society!

Discrimination at work, mocking people in the name of jokes. You think, you are all helping people to grow? Do you think people really be there for each other?

So stop opening your big mouth and talk things when you don’t even know a bit about it. “People are taking depression lightly. All they got to do is talk.” So you think, if I talk about it, I’ll be fine? Is it that easy?

If you were in his place, you wouldn’t have even stayed strong as long as he did. You would’ve given-up long ago. Be there, feel it and then talk.

Nobody wants to be around a sad soul. The statements you use “What’s wrong with you?” “Depression is just a state of mind. You’ll be okay!” “We also go through a lot in life.” This is how you talk to someone in depression? Noooooo….


Do you think people who suffer from depression get it today and they end their life the next day? Is this what you think?

Depression is built slowly, gradually. Probably a kid at the age of three is already into depression. Now, you guys would give the same lecture to that kid as well? Life will throw a lot of stuff at you, you need to face life blah blah blah!!! Would you?

Have you guys ever researched about what ‘Depression & Anxiety’ is????

There are different types of depressions. You guys wouldn’t be even knowing that –

If you do not know then,INDIA IS THE MOST DEPRESSED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. (Click on the link for more details)

Over 90 million Indians, or 7.5 percent of the countryโ€™s population of 1.3 billion, suffer from some form of mental disorder, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Well, it’s not me who is telling all this. Google it up. I have nothing against this country. But, don’t you think this can’t be just like that? There is really something wrong with you crackheads which has lead to so many people being depressed at the same time?

There are more than 200 countries in the world. Why only India is topping the list?

And whom would one ask for help from? Every 2nd person is into depression or anxiety or not in a state to help themselves.

Our own parents, the society, the place where we work and the people who we call our so called friends or acquaintances have all added up to one reaching the saturation point.

So who are we to judge Sushant’s decision of ending his life?


What is wrong with us that a person in depression doesn’t find us approachable? Why do people hesitate in sharing what they feel. Think!!

We aren’t treating each other right. Please, stop this fake concern once you push someone in the grave. We killed him! He did not kill himself. He was already dead when he was alive. He just put an end to his sufferings.

Dear Sushant, I hope you found the peace that this world couldn’t give you. You stayed strong for a long time, I know. So ashamed to be a part of a society who does every damn thing to ruin your brain since your birth and pushes you into depression and then asks ‘YOU’ to talk about it. It doesn’t want to look at their own faults but, judges your decision of ending your life.

I’m sorry!

      1. You are right
        I just thought of sharing it with you
        Itโ€™s something Iโ€™ve been working on with another blogger
        Her name is Elle
        Once you feel that itโ€™s the best time
        Hope you check it out


  1. I’m speechless. I respect every depressed person’s decision to suicide and I am no one to question it, because for them, it’s better than living amongst us horrible people. Your voice made me shiver… I think that’s what all the others who were blabbering need to feel too.
    RIP Sushant and every other person who suicided due to depression.

      1. I’m sorry, I can’t reblog (due to a few abusive words that my parents won’t allow me to use), but I definitely can share this with people I know. Yeah you’re totally right. They do need to shut up.

  2. I can sense your anger while reading this, and I have to say one thing, and one thing only: THAT is hypocrisy at itโ€™s finest!

    If only theyโ€™d grown a pair, and had attempted to help such people, instead of being judgemental and narrow minded douchesโ€ฆโ€ฆ..

  3. Take a breath, please. Your anger and disappointment are clearly visible. I don’t think I have much to add here, but I’ll say I pretty much agree with you. We are no judge. We can’t know what they feel until we feel it ourselves.

  4. It’s so true, I also wanted to say this but did not find words, I agree with you

          1. I had exam yesterday, when I returned home, mom was seeing news feeds on FB, and she told me, I was not able to believe this, and I said her, it must be fake news
            Depression is a silent killer, and how lightly it is taken and how people mock it

            I am there, you can talk with me always ๐Ÿ’™

        1. Not sure how many really read it and how many got offended. But, my whole intention was to make people realise that it’s us most of the times who make it difficult to survive and push people into such situations.

          Yes Kim, I posted it today. It was so huge, I couldn’t post it yesterday.

  5. What you have written is absolutely true. How can people have the nerve, and the audacity to question him?! “Suicide is never the answer ” I agree, it’s not. But like you said, have they ever gone through depression?!!!! No, they haven’t. We are not talking about the English meaning of the word “depression”. We are talking about a psychiatric disease, for God’s sake!! Depression is not as simple as being sad. You lose your senses in any mental disorder! For a person going through depression, the MEDICAL TERM depression, suicide doesn’t sound as drastic as it sound to us. Thank you so much for writing this. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ We need people to realize this. Your words have power.
    RIP Sushant and all those who fell victims to depression, and committed suicide.

    1. Thanks a lot, Ishita! I am just so disappointed with everything that has happened. Not coz I knew him personally but the way people are so casual in their talks as though they know what he felt like.

      I couldn’t keep my mouth shut and just ignore the stupid talks. I had to speak it out.

      1. You are welcomeโค
        People are so insensitive. So insensitive. Sushant’s suicide has become a piece of gossip, and a way of sensationalizing news. If a person like him can commit suicide because of depression, what more proof do you need to understand that depression is a major disease?!

        I’m so glad you spoke it out. You should.

  6. Youโ€™ve expressed your thoughts and frustrations through this post in an absolutely perfect manner. I canโ€™t help but agree with everything youโ€™ve written. It came as a shock to the whole nation because no one knew he was depressed and it made me think just how many people there are around me that I donโ€™t even know of who are going through the same thing and I donโ€™t know how we can help them. I guess sometimes the brightest faces have the darkest souls. Thank you for writing such an amazing piece.
    Thank you so much!

  7. Itโ€™s so sad that suicide happens. There is so much stigma around mental health that people feel like they cannot be open about their struggles, and to be honest they have a point. So many people donโ€™t understand and I think instead of being dismissive, they should educate themselves. Nobody will ever fully know what someone else is going through but they can try their best to try and understand, but a lot of people are unwilling to do so. Thank you xx
