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.
