It sells.


Depression is real and fashionable. Paste it on your forehead, advertise and sell in exchange for sympathy. So many vendors, so many customers and such a big market. You can’t help them, they don’t want it. Why? Because they’re not depressed. Nobody knows what depression is. Depressed people don’t know they’re depressed. Or they do but don’t show it off. It’s not a necklace. Its a noose. Who cares, let’s just label ourselves and go around wearing this facade, for we are the hopeless romantics of heart break land.

  1. A term so many people tend to confuse these days especially when there is a lot of news to make anyone feel terrible. How have you been, Prince of Darkness?

              Hey, did I miss your post for the day or have you not posted?

            9. Yeah but still. Not the kind of wedding invite someone who’s been following you for years would want. 😛
              I don’t have anything to post

            10. I figured you’d be pissed about that. Sorry. Things happened so quickly and I got caught up. And the virtual invites went out only to be whatsapp contacts in the end.

              Oh c’mon on, there’s always something to write about, if you’re willing to search of course.

        At home but virtually throughout Bangalore!! 😃Bharath I used to tell you I don’t feel good, I feel like “nothing” … from three weeks of volunteering I’m feeling better you know!!! Ups n downs are there but it’s helping someone.. one on one .. calming distressed and anxious people, helping them as much … growing my network with hospital staff and medical shops .. it’s been one hell of a ride last two weeks ..

        The thoughtful ones are gloomy, if not clinically depressed (many are, though), the less thoughtful ones are crazy about football, cars, DIY (!) and their weight🙂

    So accurate. I am so glad someone wrote about this
    People misuse the term ‘depressed’ and nowadays they use it as often as Hello. It seriously pisses me off because depression IS NOT A JOKE

    1. I know clinically depressed people and trust me, they don’t advertise it.

        Exactly
        But then people who are sad or you know are feeling down just say, “I am depressed” and that’s just agitating
