Hello Readers! Welcome Back! As promised, we are back onto the “New World Order” to share with you, some important aspects of this #LockdownLife! Today, readers, I would like to talk about a topic I had briefly touched upon, in my previous blog-“DepressionInTheseTimes”…
We know there is a lot of talk on this topic, and so, many would call this, the latest Hot-Topic! It is true, that talk about this subject has increased due to the fact that more people have been experiencing depression, due to various reasons. Some are subject to this sort of mental torture due to pay cuts and loss of jobs, while others are noticing such mental torment and abuse, living away from their families, in these times. Many people who shifted to metropolitan cities, from smaller areas, in pursuit of a better living, away from their own people, have been having a hard time living completely by themselves for such a long stretch.
We have seen a lot of people facing such issues, even supposedly strong people have been feeling vulnerable and helpless in the current circumstances. So, I believe, one only has the option of keeping himself positive, busy, and thus, safe!
We need to see the positive in everything, am sure, you must have heard your elders tell you that repeatedly. So, that is what even I suggest. Many of us have started learning new skills, people are taking time out to read, many of us have been preparing rigorously for the years going ahead. And, I feel, doing such acts, and staying away from sad thoughts and negativity will help us overtake COVID-19, at the earliest!
And, surely, music and art, like our previous blog suggested, have been constant companions. Many songs released during the lockdown have been a source of both entertainment, and hope, telling us to remain positive. Am sure you would have seen many songs, however, my personal favorite is this one- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOCk52DLSAU, and another one is- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC1WARWHaNk. Both these songs remind us to remain strong, and positive in these times. Am sure, with so much hope in the air, we should remain confident that this time will pass, and we needn’t worry.
Since we all know that nothing is permanent in this world, and these times will, ultimately pass, so, we shouldn’t fear, instead, we should only remain indoors as much as possible, remain positive and not fall prey to such inauspicious thoughts.
Before parting, I just want to say “It’s funny how, when things seem the darkest, moments of beauty present themselves in the most unexpected places.” ― Karen Marie Moning, and so, look out for these happy moments, and stay patient for, this cloud, too, shall have its silver lining.
