On hindsight the things I feel when I go through depression, bring a smile to my face and make me wonder as to why I let myself be overwhelmed by my fears and anxiety to that extent. But when I do go through depression, the anxiety, the fears, the guilt and the pain, completely take over me. This lighthearted take off the conflicting, roller coaster of emotions I go through during depression is a small reminder to myself that even though waves, which some time seem like a tsunami or a rough sea during storm, start breaking, it is an indication that the shore is close by….. Just keep swimming!!

    Depression and anxiety are common……
    That matters more how we handle them and what’s our attitude towards them……
