The shocking demise of talented and versatile actor, Sushant Singh Rajput shocked the entertainment industry and nation. His tragic suicide also triggered the topic of depression and mental health among the people. Now Bollywood actress, Shamita Shetty has opened up on her battle with depression and said if one is suffering with it, should seek help instead of fighting it alone.
Shamita's note reads, “Depression..anyone of us can go through it...recognise it..accept it..n reach out for help in whichever way you can!! It can pull you into a very dark place, where hope n happiness don’t exist.. it tries to break u.. it feeds on every part of ur soul.. everything hurts, you become your own worst enemy in this dark terrible world..it becomes ur reality!! The world we live in doesn’t know ur journey.. yet it’s so prompt to judge! To hate! Waiting to pull u down!! U fall in the eyes of ur own goals n expectations n u start to judge urself ,then..u MAKE ur reality a dark one! But none of that matters as this is your journey n urs alone !!!”
It further reads, “I know the pain because I’ve been through it.. it took me a while to recognise and accept it..to muster up courage, look it right in the eyes n say I’m stronger than you .. n I will beat you! I don’t know why I felt like writing this today .. I feel like this world is changing, so much is happening around us that is changing us , but let this phase make us stronger not weaker.”
“U have to seek help with depression..don’t try n fight this alone.. reach out! Know that there are ppl out there who have been through everything ur going through.. Reach out to ur loved ones, seek psychiatric help.. n fight it! N when u do, let me tell u this from experience.. it makes u a bloody strong person! U learn to value n love urself and ur relationships more.. u really understand what truely matters n what is not worth even contemplating, let alone affect ur soul! People say u never know ur strengths until u face ur struggles. Life is a blessing, we need to recount all those memories that brought us joy, brought a smile to our face. Recount all the difficult times that you conquered in your past and you will realise that no situation is too difficult to overcome !!! We all have inner strength to take on anything that this world throws at us, we just have to channelise it and confront it head on !!!!,” added Shamita Shetty.
