Mental illness has been a stigma for like forever now, even in times like these. It’s the year 2020, the age of the millennials. Most of the half are struggling with things “we are not supposed to talk about”.
We were supposed to change the world, well, guess we did it! We made it unbearable.
We are guided but not understood
Loved but not secured
Encouraged but not comforted
Cared for but not looked after
We are someone they listen to but not hear.
-Monika Singh Chahal
So here’s a small attempt to change it. To share stories of not only success but all failed attempts too. Not only struggles but of giving up too. The stories of souls apart from the herd. The stories still in progress.
Let the world hear you, Let us make all stories something to hear about because we were all made special and different. No success is independent of struggles, of it’s daunting past.
Let us tear down the picture of the ideal life they make us chase, An attempt to reveal the truest and the most beautiful souls of society. An attempt not for an ideal life, but a comforting world. Where these unheard are heard and understood. For that’s what we all want, deep down in there.
To be heard and understood.
