There are all kinds of reasons for so many people in the world been depressed, sad or scared. According to one of the surveys done, around three children in each school classroom are experiencing some form of mental health problem. Between 1 in every 12 and 1 in 15 children and young people deliberately indulged in self-harm.
There has been an increase in the number of young people being admitted to hospitals because of self-harm. Over the last ten years, this figure has increased a lot. As per the research, most adults with mental health problems first experienced problems in childhood. Less than half were treated appropriately at the same time.
72% of children in care have behavioural or emotional problems - these are some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Most of them want someone to give them the hope for a better future, a good life and a person to greet with a happy smile on the face with a positive mind. 95% of imprisoned young offenders have a mental health problem. Many of them are struggling with more than one problem.
When we face a bad situation, we tend to think that it might happen again. If people have hurt us in the past, we may probably be scared that it might happen again. Sometimes, some people get so sad or scared that they need help. It changes the way our brains work. We may sometimes ask doctors to help us but this doesn't really work very well for most of the people.
We must try to help ourselves by understanding the situation. We need to talk to the people who are suffering from depression. We need to talk and try to help them understand that they can rise again. We need to help them understand that they can think about the world in so many different ways.
We human beings don't always need an intelligent mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens. Supportive relationships are very much needed. The small act of kindness can be as powerful as very big donations. Look around, look within, be creative, think positive, speak gently, learn daily, be polite, help others live, love and laugh. And most importantly, 'Be Kind.'
Have a look around, look at other people's problems, help them overcome the issues and perhaps if you get stuck someday, somehow, for whatever reason, when you find your life stressful, try your own ways to feel better. Always be kind and love a little more. People may try to discourage you; some may have the worst intentions about you and it’s okay. Sometimes, a kick motivates us better than a pat on our back. We really do shape our lives through our thoughts. Don't let the negativity in your mind ruin your own life. Life is beautiful, problems and challenges are necessary. We learn to walk by falling. Sometimes, even the tragedies can turn into triumphs. Always allow the hope to live in your heart!
Read, think, debate, and learn. Bring hope, beauty, unity, and joy into yours and others life. Don't always question, 'What If I fail? What If I fall?' Oh! But darling, 'What if you fly?' For every blocked path, there is an open one. We were all messed up at some point in our lives. Hope for the possibilities. Make a promise to yourself, to do better. Act to create good out of bad. Try to do what you love as often as possible. Take one step, then another.
Understand that pain and problems are not permanent. Take a break, sit back, relax and enjoy the music. Forgive, forget and live and most importantly be strong. You have the right to cry and scream but never give up. Believe in yourself, you're the best. Discover the fulfilment in the acts that you do, make peace with your own self and your purpose. Refuse to let your fears hold you back. After all the bitter, you shall glitter.
Once you realize you don't have to prove anything to everyone in life, but to yourself, life gets easier, clearer, more enjoyable, and makes much more sense. Have faith in your future, appreciate your own value, and maintain a positive attitude. You should never think failures as finals. What lies ahead may be far better than anything you ever thought was possible? Success in everything is born out of struggle. Wear your passion, live your dream, travel often, make memories.
