Don’t make mental illness a curse

There are millions of other people who are suffering from mental illness without anyone knowing it. Mental illness is like any other medical illness that is treatable.

Today’s era is all about fashion and social media, which may lead some of us to a phoney life. A life that relies upon a fake smile that makes us forget about the genuine moments of happiness. It is the first step towards forfeiting control over yourself as well as sharing your individuality with strangers.

Intercommunicating identity with others implies giving them the right to control you and your beliefs. This world is so cruel and full of bad and terrible people. If you let them control you, they will destroy you and you will never be able to reconnect to yourself. Self-love is essential and your sentiments should forever be your priority. Never let anyone tell you what to do or when to do it. This thing concerns your thinking capabilities, emotions, feelings, and mental peace.

According to one estimate, approximately 50 million people in Pakistan suffer from mental disorders. However, no one recognises them openly. Furthermore, these are the cases that have been reported, and there are millions of other people who are suffering from mental illness without anyone knowing it. Mental illness is like any other medical illness that is treatable. There are so many types of mental illness that may guide the one dealing with it to some more significant moments. Its prominent types include mood disorders (such as depression or bipolar disorder), anxiety disorders, personality disorders, psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia), eating disorders, trauma-related disorders (such as post-traumatic stress disorder), substance abuse disorders, and many more. All of these conditions can be chronic if not treated agreeably on time. Certain misconceptions about mental illness must be dispelled. The most general among them is the one where people assume the one dealing with any of the above-mentioned conditions is tagged as “psycho, crazy, insane,” which is precisely not satisfactory. This can affect the victim’s daily life, relationships, and physical health.

How to deal with any mental issue one may be experiencing.

There are three phases of awareness of any human issue. To begin, observe the problem’s possibilities and logical outcomes; second, survey its double or complex relations; and third, observe self and encounter the mastermind and consider it as one. Take any issue that you have: for instance, irritation. Learn about its purpose, physiological and mental. Irritation might occur from nervous sluggishness and pressure; it might emerge from the specific moulding of thoughts, feelings, fear, dependence, longing for protection, etc; it might appear as powerful and passionate misery. Many of us are aware of the concept of opposite extremes, but because of pain or annoyance, we instinctively seek to be liberated from them, either fiercely or in various hidden ways. We are more worried about getting away from the battle, preferably than about getting it. This desire to be freed from the idea animates its congruity, thus holding it up with logical inconsistency. This desire should be watched and perceived. It is difficult, however, to be watchfully unfriendly in the concept of duality; we attack or legitimise, analyse or differentiate, so we truly choose sides and later keep up with the reason for the struggle. Choicelessly aware of the idea of duality is demanding, yet it is essential if you want to rise above the problem of how to deal with mental health issues.

Life is not easy nor short. Every second of this life is really difficult and painful. All humans have different ways of dealing with their anxieties, health, and peace. — Some can bear it, but some can’t. Some can talk about it, but some can’t.

Be kind to everyone around you because you never know what the other person is going through. Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind always.

Your mental illness is not your failure. It is about giving yourself a chance and a wish; a wish to change, a wish to be a good person, and a wish to be yourself. Nothing is more terrifying than battling with your mind every single day and making yourself believe that you’re OK while you are not.

There are many types of negativities living within you that you need to change. Nobody can change it for you.

Starting with, there is nothing like perfectionism. Sometimes, trying to achieve something unattainable will only result in you feeling less than. You need to let things go. Next, you must learn to control your judgments about yourself and others, because I believe that when we are judgmental, we only focus on the negative qualities in ourselves and others. Furthermore, never doubt your abilities. Self-doubt is a weed that takes over your life if you don’t kill it at the root; first, it takes away your peace and then your health. Furthermore, never lose hope in anything, because if you think things will be better, they won’t be. Stop worrying about stuff. Worrying changes nothing except your health and mental state. Last but not least, never try to control everything because you can’t control everything, and when you try to, you inevitably fail, and you will only blame yourself.

A little reminder;

Admiring others is good, but to a limit; try to be the best version of yourself.

Most importantly, sometimes

  • It’s okay to feel unstable.
  • It’s okay to disassociate.
  • It’s okay to hide from the world.
  • It’s okay to need help.
  • It’s okay to not be okay.
  • It’s okay to make mistakes.
  • It’s okay to be yourself.
