The untimely death of Sushant Singh Rajput might have left us shaken to the core. It actually should. How often do we ask others how are they feeling, how are they coping up with their day to day struggles.
Human relationships are strange. We make relationships, yes. But to what extent do we live to nurture it and take care of it. Very rare, right?
All of you reading this have got multiple friends from all spheres of life. How often do you contact each other to ask about their well being? We don’t always do that. At least I don’t, to be very honest. It’s just those regular bunch of friends that probably I talk to via any social media. And just yet another handful with whom I stay connected day in and day out.
Each one of us are fighting our own battles, knowingly and unknowingly. The best we can do as humans, is probably take a stand and assure everyone we know that yes, I am there for you.
I’ll be your listener, no matter what time of the day it is.
I’ll be the patient listener, who’s not going to judge you, no matter how insane your issues are. And trust me, that’s all it takes.
To be able to be a shoulder for someone to lean on at tough times, the ability to give the assurance that yes, things might be a bit topsy turvy now but it’ll fall into place, eventually. Not right away, but definitely over time.
Till then, all you need to do is hold my hand and take the stride of any path you want, no matter how rocky it is and I’ll never let you go. This is all it takes, folks.
Mental health is for real. And to all those who still think it’s a disease to shy away from it and keep your mouth shut, you really need to break that thought before anyone breaks down before you.
And trust me when I say this, you won’t be able to handle it then.
