How to handle the black dogs in our lives

August 16, 2014 , Jose Pinto Stephen

dogI am writing this short article for two reasons. First one is to answer to a question posted in facebook by one of my friends. He asked exactly like this “ I’m still puzzled as to how can a man so brilliantly funny who brought so much laughter to so many can be so depressed to commit suicide? “. He was referring to the tragic death of Robin Williams. It is a brilliant question and yet very relevant too.

The answer is ‘human mind is really a mystery’ and we need more skills to understand the complex activities happening in it. We should ask ourselves why this kind of incidents happening? Why we are not able to understand what is really happening in another person’s mind and life in general? Why our diagnoses are not accurate?

I think now a dayspeople are not willing to share their real feelings with others. People do not trust one another in our modern era. They are afraid of being bullied or isolated. So even in the midst of serious stress and depression people are trying to cover it up and trying to present themselves as cheerful people.

On 12th august I got the privilege to attend the UN International Day Celebration at the UN Head Quarters in New York. The theme of this year’s Youth Day was ‘Mental Health Matters’ and there were informative panel discussions on mental health issues among the youth across the globe.

Mental Health is a serious area we should have more focus in the modern era. We need more research and studies in this topic. Fortunately now there are more facilities in our time to deal with mental health issues. But still lots of people are not willing to seek for help.

Make sure when we need help, don’t hesitate to ask for help. That is very important. And we also should be more caring and loving. We don’t have to a professional in this field. But try to be more humanistic in our approach. We should change our attitudes towards others. Then they will trust us and will share their inner secrets. Thus by we can help oneanother and make this world a wonderful place to live in.

Today I found an interesting and inspiring video in facebook. That is the second reason for writing this article. The title of the video is ‘what Is Depression? Let This Animation With A Dog Shed Light On It’.

It is really a worth to watch it. It will help us to know about depression and it also teach us how to deal with depression.
