This Is Not About You
Ayah pernah kata- orang yang pernah merasai kemiskinan dan berjaya keluar daripada kemiskinan, dia akan jadi antara dua benda:
1) he learns from the experience; becomes stronger and kinder
2) he doesn't learn from the experience; becomes heartless and proud
I believe the same goes for depression.
Just because you don't have depression, it doesn't give you the license to talk shit about those who do.
Just because something doesn't happen to you, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. This is not about you.
And having success over depression does not give you the privilege to talk shit about those who are still battling or those who have lost their battles. People don't need to live by your standards. This is not about you.
You don't get to decide what is real and what is not. The way people with depression don't get to decide whether they have it or not. What they can decide is how they handle it and what works really differs depending on the individual. You don't get to put a template because there's none. This is not about you.
Biarlah kita bodoh dan belajar, daripada kita buat-buat pandai dan bersembang yakin tentang perkara yang kita tidak arif.
