Wow it feels like fucking forever eh? I know I missed you guys too. Anywhos, sorry for the delay in the blogs. I have had a very busy week and lets just say that it is both amazing and not so much at the same time.
Well just as an update here is what I have been upto in my previous week. Again I apologize to my readers for the gap in my posts.
So last week I had to attend a Muslim Convention where I was part of their editting team. Yes a Muslim Convention. It was their 62nd Annual Convention held this year in Chantily in VA. What can I say I’m just into the whole philosophy and world religion stuff! Now the convention was from Friday to Sunday as in today and I had to report there last wednesday.
The trip to base camp was in itself an interesting journey cuz let me tell you I got into a freakin’ car wrecking accident. Who needs to get on a rollercoaster ride when you can just take a ride in a car wreck?! lol!!!
The journey from Philly to Silverspring is suppose to be about 2.5 hrs long but I got there in 6!!! It was raining heavily with about 0% visibilty. Now I was about 45 mins away from Silverspring when my car went completely out of control and started to skid all over the place rotating 360 degrees and crashing into the middle dividers on the road. I can’t thank God enough for saving my life. More miracles happened later on but that’s a blog for another day. I did enjoy the convention thoroughly and heard some really inspiring speeches!
Now lets talk depression. Many of you guys and gals out there have heard of depression but very few know what it is. I find it very troubling that so many people out there use this term so lightly. If you look at what true depression is you will see how fucked up of a feeling it is and think twice before saying things like ‘i feel depressed today’. Depression is a state of being or feeling where not only are you sad but you also cannot find a meaning to your existence. You try to justify who you are to yourself but in vain. Depression causes suicidal thoughts and feelings and thus many depressed people end up taking their own lives.
Obviously if you find out if someone is depressed you would want to help them. But how do you help someone who has convinced themselves that their life isn’t worth the effort and that they should just end their lives? Well you have to be there for them and I don’t mean just to talk to them. Usually talking is great but after that you need to be the elder brother to them. Don’t be a parent or a ‘concerned’ friend cuz that’s loser talk for I’m just here to stop your whinning. You need to be stern about the way they are behaving yet gentle. Best way to keep them from depression is to just hang out with them and let your coolness rub off on them.
Depression hurts. Has it hurt you yet?
