Happiness looks different on different people, so does sadness.
There is always a lifetime behind every decision, so it isn’t fair to judge people on the basis of 1st appearances.
On seeing the most extroverted, outgoing people battle crippling mental health issues, I’ve learnt that it isn’t enough to know better, we must do better.
Mental health illnesses, particularly depression and anxiety are the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. The best people do is add more stigma to it, spread false conceptions and isolate unwell people.
Most people wish they had a visible illness like a broken leg or stomach flu because that gets immediate medical attention and family support.
1 in 4 people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives.
Around 450 million people suffer from such conditions currently. Choose kindness, help people reach out for support, you might be saving a life.
