All of us have dealt with depression at least once in our lives. It’s a natural response to frustration in front of problems escaping from your hands. It’s okay, it’s alright.
Different periods of our life lead us to paths we didn’t expect to find, normally holding hands with complicated situations, people making all difficult, rocks on the way you would have never thought they would be there. Our capacity of adapting to huge changes is limited due to the effort our mind needs to accomplish in order to change our neuronal routes, it’s not easy at all. Even less if you are an expert at controlling, ordering and organizing your life because you like everything at its proper place. Many of you would know what I’m talking about, right?
I’ve read hundreds of articles about compulsion and psychological basis of mental changes and many of them grinds your self-esteem explaining to you why you are wrong, why you need to change and why you are a coward for not facing changes. I’m sorry, but I must step in. Many “new psychology” books are very dangerous depending on whose hands they are. Mental compulsion and the need of order is a whole universe and it’s a very sensible subject. We are living in an Olympics soaked in “leave your comfort zone! Be brave!” “set goals, roar, fight, be a warrior!” Yes, OK, fine. That is very fine and very beautiful. But not everyone is the same. You cannot try to encourage every single person the same way. Everyone should know themselves and love their own skills and work from there.
Today, I just want to lend a kind thought for all of these people who never feels embraced by how the world works.
You, who can’t talk because you are too shy, and feel safe in your silence.
You, who has no friends, but your inner world is passionate and full of intensity.
You, who wash your hands thirty times a day, because you just, have to do it.
You, who can’t stand someone approaching you.
You, who suffer insomnia and your life’s made of sleepless nights.
You, who keep a secret.
You, who feel rejected by the way you are, love or look.
You, who are alone.
You, who’s been rejected.
You, who keep a thousand obsessions.
You, who love different.
You, whose needs are fierce.
You, who have been bullied.
You, who suffer panic attacks.
You, with a terrible OCD.
You, who need order and control.
You, who no one remembers about.
All of you, every one of you. Listen, please. Your soul is as bright as a lightning, just as any other. Your love is precious. Your effort is amazing. You don’t have to fit, you need to look for a different path which brings you peace and let you have near people who loves you by the way you are. Sometimes, we think we are fighting and what we are doing is smashing against the same wall over and over and over. Your mind needs a release so you can see better your steps. You need people who will love you. Judging you is not loving you. Fierce needs correspond to fierce solutions.
If you need your world to be warmer, safer and more beautiful for you, start being warm, safe and beautiful to yourself. Take care of you and your mind. Listen to your soul. Life is too short and you are your only company. I’m certain you can do it because every soul is precious, able and sacred. No matter the way it’s wrapped. Watch it, it’s the greatest treasure you will ever have.
