In her video, she said “I am not a mental health expert or a doctor but I am just a simple girl who have been through those dark lanes of pain and know how scary it is. Everyone has their own set of battles which they fight every day. What we need to do as humans? We just need to be kind to people everyone we meet. Most of the people pretend that they are fine, even when they are not. That’s okay if they don’t share”.
This is true. Not everyone who going through a state of depression feels like sharing it. Depression does not look like what we see in movies. Mostly it’s like, people pretend that they are fine and laugh and dance when surrounded by people, but when they are alone, they just sit numb for hours and cry and sulk.
“There is a lack of kindness around us, especially on social media. People are bullying, being rude and talking sarcastically, it’s such a bad thing. It’s wrong. People need to be kind to anyone and everyone they meet. You don’t know what that person is going through. May it be your house help, or the courier guy who delivered you the package, or the vegetable vendor. A smile costs nothing. An act of kindness costs nothing and that’s why I made this video. I usually don’t speak about all this but I felt this is the time that I should speak up and maybe it will reach masses and bright a wave of kindness in people”, said Anamika Mishra.
