It was very important for me to share this with others. It changed my life. I was not aware of what I was dealing with.
I was not feeling motivated at all. I did not know why I was not happy with my life. Also I was unaware with the fact that I needed medical help.
Deepika further said,
I completely felt transparency, because of depression, I came to understand how delicate life is, it made me very sensitive towards the thoughts, feelings of the people.
She made it clear that everyone should impress their thoughts and people should not make an immediate impression about anyone.
When I started to realize I am going down the same path again I felt tired, so I started taking care of my thoughts to avoid it because it had been a bad experience, since then I have always been vigilant, obviously, I am afraid of going back in the depression again, so I always pay attention to my thoughts and feelings.
