What do you do when someone close to you is sad and silent? Yes, we make efforts and ask them but what if they conceal it with a smile and say that they’re okay? We carry on and forget to cross-check, right? If that’s what you do with your loved ones, there is a high possibility that you are ignoring the signs of their depression. People often feel embarrassed as talking about depression is difficult.
Explaining to another person about your state of mind, especially when it is a mental illness, is difficult. Now, a video released online by Deepika Padukone’s, Live Love Laugh Foundation. is a beautiful reminder of why we should reassure those with mental illness that it is going to be okay. This video will not only make you more empathetic but will leave you with too many thoughts.
