Last Friday I sang and vibed with @wndrwmnevents at their #wndrwmn panel ✨🌹It was a magical night and I always feel most powerful surrounded by #womxn . In honor of #wcw I dropped a lil surprise live recording of my cover to my fav song - “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac . Go to my @soundcloud to listen !✨ S/o to @jonnykt on guitar ✨
Have there been times where despite being with big groups of people,you find yourself a little lost ?
Random conversations can happen with anyone but it takes certain amount of maturity to have heart to heart conversations.
When you talk about certain pressing issues and want to have meaningful discussions around them,trust me not everyone is interested. Some feel proud to say that they don't follow all such news. How uncool is this,isn't it ?
I would feel embarrassed to make such statements being a modern, independent and a career oriented woman.
I am okay to talk about fashion,make - up, shopping etc for few minutes in our conversation but beyond that share with me your thoughts on what measures you are taking towards being sustainable.
Talk to me about which article inspired you on the topic of mental health.
Share how you are working towards your personal goals and progress.
Tell me which recent book resonated the most with you and why ?
Share your interests and stories around them. If I don't know,through you I ll pick up something new.
None of us can claim to know everything. None of us are perfect. Not all of us have the same interest and hobbies. That's fine.
We are all here to learn. This learning will only take place when we have heart to heart conversations. More sensible. More meaningful and more enriching.
THE REAL TRUTH BEHIND DEPRESSION: ———————————————————
Depression for many of us who are clinically diagnosed is not something we post about regularly. It is not something we prefer writing long, explicative posts about. It is not something we attempt to reap benefits from monetarily. Depression is not something grand to write home about or post about. The real truth about depression is that it cripples your ability to express genuine emotion and in some cases, destroys everything around you like a California wildfire. Some of us take multiple pills a day because it makes us feel normal. Some of us have trouble even getting out of bed. But for me, I struggle with even wanting to be here another day. So when you see a post about depression from a random influencer, think twice about double tapping. Some people will shed light for awareness while others intend to line their pockets.
P.S. if you enjoy victimizing yourself, do not tell someone who suffers from Major Depressive Disorder with anxious distress and insomnia that they made you want to kill yourself because they told you that you’re a bad friend. It’s disgusting.
