Shine Bright in the Midst of Darkness

Updated: May 24, 2019

What makes humans different from the other species is the abundant emotions that we have. We tend to smile when we make new acquaintances and that can turn upside down when those people cheat us. When we have an exam the next day, we’ll turn anxious and if we don't get what we want, we’ll get angry. Various situations trigger a different set of emotions. Now, what makes \us superior among all the other species is because we can cope with these feelings.


However sometimes, certain situations can hit real hard towards someone, causing their mental health to decline. It is now, that these people start getting labels that they are hopeless or worth no good. And in some cases, parents will disown them. It is not only the ones with a poor mental health, but, the disabled, the blind, the poor, and orphans are also frowned upon.


But, I will assure everyone that the labels which are thrown upon us have no meaning as every individual has the potential to shine. I will tell you that after getting to know that I will have to live with a disease, I slipped into depression. I had to battle with this negativity that was seeping through my brain and I was only 10 years old. This long phase eventually ended and I was able to snap out of it, thus, leading a happier life.

Life does get better, because I am living proof that you can recover.
