YourQuote – I Shut My Eyes!

Published 29th October 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Well, posting here after a long time… I have not been active here but I was a little active on YourQuote lately. But, This was something I really had to share on my blog too and not just on YourQuote.

Depression is something many people Suffer Silently. And this is something that just can’t be ignored & needs everyone’s attention, time, support, understanding to help those who are suffering. It is high time people are educated more about it to identify them and help those silent sufferers…

Pls Identify those suffering from depression & request everyone to be more affectionate, caring & empathetic towards them.

They might be always smiling in front of everyone but you have no idea what difficult battles they are fighting in their, “MIND with painful thoughts, HEART with painful emotions & SOUL looking forward for an end desperately to be free from all obligations.” As Suicide is a permanent answer for all the pain and misery. 

And you never know when depression can lead to “Suicide”. And mind you, they are not a “Coward”. You have no idea the battles they have fought, they are still fighting and fear of fighting in the future too. You have no idea what they have been through. Try to listen, understand, be caring, supporting rather than judging them, giving them labels and bring more pain to them…

Please be kind to everyone, if you can’t make someone smile it’s ok but at least don’t be the reason for their pain & misery.

Last but not the least, Thanks to YourQuote for this challenge to write something on Sylvia Plath’s birthday. Hence, taking this opportunity to speak my heart out on depression…

On 29th April’18 I came across SylviaPlath’s poetry as we had received a prompt by NapoWrimo to pick one of her poem & write a response to it.
That was the 1st time I had the opportunity to know about her & her poems & to write related to her poem. (If you would like to read my poem on the prompt then please find the link below for the same

And now this is my 2nd opportunity to write something for her.


YourQuote Challene:
It’s Sylvia Plath’s birthday! Complete this quote in your own words.

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my lids and all is born again. (I think I made you up inside my head.)” – Mad Girl’s Love Song

Trigger warning: Mental illness & suicide.

She’s known for her poetry worldwide. She suffered from clinical depression. At first she tried overdosing on pills. Later she killed herself at the age of 30 by sticking her head in an oven.

People may look okay, have great careers but be suffering. Watch out. Care.
