That bye was not a usual bye, because it was the last one

Hey, everyone!

It’s been a long time since I shared anything with you! So, I am going to share a piece of my work with you which is titled- ‘That Unusual Bye’.

THE UNUSUAL BYE

She was lying there,
Silently, quietly, without saying a word.
When everyone was trying to wake her up in the sea of red fluid,
She doesn’t want to wake up.
It was hard to watch,
She lay there peacefully while everyone else was making noise and being unclear.
Things were messy,
But she didn’t want to wake up.
There were cries,
But she still doesn’t want to wake up.
Her skin was pale eyes were closed,
All I could see was a girl lying on the floor.
She has slept for the rest of her life,
She won’t be coming back, and no one could bring her to life.
The slit on her wrist was not the sign of cowardliness,
It was just too hard to take things anymore because no one could feel that.
It was hard to watch her lying there,
On the death bed, we couldn’t believe it.
It was just too hard to accept the fact,
That usual goodbye was our last one.
I wish I could help her,
I wish I could understand,
But the fact is I was unable to see the real truth behind that usual smile.
I regret it, I swear, I do,
I wish I could talk to her about all the fears and blues.
Now, when she is no more,
I am getting the clues.
That same girl who used us laugh,
she is no longer with us anymore.

​I wrote this after watching a show about #SuicideAwareness.
I don’t know how many people go through difficulties in their lives, but ignoring them and saying, “Hey, you’ll be fine!” lead them to take heart-wrenching steps.
If someone tells you and shares their insecurities, difficulties, and suicidal thoughts with you, your first reaction should never be- “Hey, you’ll be fine!”

They are having a difficult time. People are supposed to encourage them. If you know any such person, give them a tight hug and tell them- “I am with you, and you can share anything with me.”

I, personally, know someone, someone close to me who was on the verge. The circumstances, actions, and reactions drove that person to the point where he/she thought that the only solution was suicide. When I asked what the person was thinking at that particular point in time, the answer was “NOTHING. I wasn’t thinking. It was too heavy to take in.”

We, as a society, are responsible for many teenage suicides. We have forgotten basic human emotions like empathizing, supporting, and understanding. We would rather judge a person than helping him/ her in a difficult time. Let’s try to be more humane.

And if you are having such thoughts in your mind, talk to someone, it can be anyone- your family, friends, even a stranger could put you out it. There’s always one person who loves you more than you love yourself. Suicide doesn’t end the suffering and pain; it transfers it to another person- mostly to the people who love you the most. Life is about living, sharing, and caring. Love them, share with them, and care about them. But first, learn to love yourself.
Suicide is not the answer to your problems and what goes inside your head. You leave many people behind with guilt in their hearts for the rest of their lives. Before taking this step, sit back, think, and try to comprehend what would be their life without you.

How All of Us Are Ruining Our Mental Health

There are many things that ruin your mental health. And you are not supposed to take it lightly. It should be your priority. You should love yourself before loving someone else!

In our day-to-day life, we go through many things. We, human beings, are way too reluctant toward somethings. We always want to be the best. We never try to compete with ourselves. We compete with others that is the beginning of ruining ourselves. Accept it or not, all of us are in a dilemma. We hardly try to understand things. We prefer to react rather than listening and understanding.

Well, I am not going to write all those long paragraphs and explain how we are ruining our mental health. People hardly care about their mental health, which is why we end up in a hell created by ourselves.

You can feel your mental health deteriorating with your day-to-day activities. Here are the things or you can say are the beginning of the vicious cycle of self-destruction:

# Overthinking about everything

You joined a new workplace, and it is hard to get along with people, you start to overthink. It causes low self-esteem.

# Comparing yourself with other people your age

Accept it or not, most of us have done this at a certain point in our lives. The moment you start to compare yourself with people of your age, you end up losing yourself.

# Your happiness is not equal to the money you earn

Yes, money is a necessity. You cannot live without it, but comparing your happiness to financial assets is a complete disaster! It is a basic need, but making it your priority wouldn’t help you find peace of mind and happiness.

# Surrounding yourself with toxic people

There is no reason to keep those in your life who do not make you happy. Life is about more downs, but that doesn’t mean you can let a person destroy you. Just get rid of those people as soon as you can.

# Overthinking about the future

Planning for the future is good, but if you keep thinking about it, you will end up being anxious.

# Expectation

Expectation can make your life miserable. The more you expect, the more you overthink.

Many things harm our mental health, and you are not supposed to take it lightly. It should be your priority. You should love yourself before loving someone else!

5 home made things over chemical products.

We are in the age where we all rely upon off the shelf products. Being slaved because of our work we forgot to take care of ourselves. Ignorance toward health would probably lead to many problems.
Ask yourself once, “when was the last time i read the contents of product I’m using?”
The answer is probably “I can’t remember!”
We have to draw attention toward the percentage of chemicals in our daily used goods in which some low level and very harmful chemicals are used and it is destroying our health and our society.
