Blaming the Labels.

Hello everyone,

Today’s blog post is about blaming things on labels.

Mostly everything needs to be labeled and labels help us to identify what we are looking for among the crowd. We all enjoy labeling things, don’t we? Even I do, but is it important to label it or blame it?

I have suffered from depression. Around 2.5 years back, I was in the worst phase of my life. I felt too low and wanted to be left alone. Didn’t want to talk to anyone. I was in this phase — Oh, sorry, can’t talk, I have depression. Let me self-pity myself.

Yes, I was in “Depression”. I knew what was happening to me. I had a label for it.

Back then when I was going through a tough time, I started developing a bad habit of blaming everything that was going wrong with me on depression. Agreed, whenever we are depressed, we don’t know what to do, but is blaming everything on it is valid?

No. Absolutely not! I think it’s just dumb and selfish.

I stopped picking up the calls of my friends. No exchange of messages. No way to communicate. Uninstalled all the social media apps.

But what If that call was important? What if my friend was calling because she/he needs me? What if someone was calling for the last time?

I know I’ve been an idiot. Annoying. Selfish.

I regret letting everyone down. I just want to apologize to everyone for my behavior, it wasn’t easy to put up with me.

  1. I know what you mean, but I think you are too hard on yourself. I don’t think you will have chosen to be selfish after balancing the choice against the opposite. Sometimes that old brain/mind is following the threat behaviours it always has…

    1. Sometimes you have to be hard on yourself to get out the phase and I’m glad I did that. But I agree with you, it’s not like I chose to be isolated I eventually landed up there without even noticing.
      Thank you for reading 🙂

      1. Yeah I think I get what you mean, sometimes I think about how I have wasted time in the past waiting for things to be “right” before I move forward. But then, maybe there is no right time, and I just have to make a choice and do it. Always happy to connect with new people on here, after all I suppose we are all in the mus together 😅

  2. World is full of happiness as well as sorrow’s…but it is in our life how we deal it…If life will not have sorrow’s than we will never learn things… Happiness is always we want…but to bring that happiness in our own life we have to deal everything out…
    Anamika May God bless, Protect and give you the courage to struggle stress, sadness so that your aim is fulfilled… Failure is a step stone to success…
