Do you ever feel like the whole world is weighing down on you?
Have you felt like your inner strength can’t sustain you anymore?
Do you have lots of people looking up to you but somehow you can’t seem to figure out the core of your existence?
Are you TIRED? Or going through depression?
If any of this is you, let me make it known that you’re not alone in this.
When I launched my blog, I had a direction. It was a divine one and that was where my tagline “enriching the mindset” came from.
So after many Google searches, www.yeyetomisin.com was launched.
But that was it. I didn’t know what to do next. I was only sure of one thing which was that I didn’t want my blog to be the regular entertainment blog littered all around the webspace. I want to be of positive influence to my peers and the world at large. How that was going to be actualized, I didn’t know. I still don’t know.
Know this, prior to my blog, I always referred to myself as someone who isn’t evolving with the world technologically. It was as though I couldn’t keep up. I was just learning how to set an alarm on a small Nokia phone and BOOM smartphones came and now I have to figure out how to take a selfie, successfully.
I was never a tech genius. Still not. I don’t have a personal system so computer wise, I’m an illiterate.
Numbers bring out the worst in me, so I’m totally anti-mathematics, but just like karma, it keeps coming back to haunt me.
I don’t know how to be emotionally vulnerable to people, so whenever I’m in my feelings (like Drake lol) I just pick someone I’d really love to talk to, bare out my heart and literarily have a conversation with them all in my head.
Now back to my blog, I still don’t know what to do about it. I have all these ideas they come upon me like a high tiding wave, but like the wind, I can’t seem to catch them.
I love my readers so much, I wish to meet all of you someday, have a round table talk and basically talk about life in a way that will make my comment section jealous. You are the reason why somehow, I still keep myself in check. I realized that you’re giving me a large opportunity to be part of your lives and I don’t take that for granted.
I may not be clear about somethings in life, but one thing is sure, my blog is here to stay.
SO WHY AM I TELLING YOU THIS MUCH STORY?
Look, no one has it all together. We just stay positive. I’ve had the opportunity to speak with people from different walks of life, and one thing was evident….STAYING DRIVEN.
There’s a lot going on in the world right now. It is like a pool of depression. And people just keep swimming and swimming. Some get out while some drown.Yup, they commit suicide.
Here are some words that’d come up in a discussion about suicide- Courage, pain, depression and letting go.
People who commit suicide are often considered Courageous. It all starts from pain, then into depression which further leads to them letting go.
So a farmer sees this weed beginning to sprout, overlooks it for the first day. Overlooks it when it begins to mix with the good crops with the thought that he’d separate it when it’s harvest time. Slowly and gradually, the weed gets deeply intertwined with the crop to the extent of it getting almost impossible to separate them without killing the crop,
Depression is the weed, the core of our existence is the crop and we are the farmer.
We overlook the little important details in our lives. We are aware of the “weed”, but we choose to ignore it. We don’t look out for ourselves like we should. It is heart breaking. Why then are we trying to make so much money if we can’t look out for ourselves. Our inner person needs us. Let’s pay more attention to him.
Let’s take the bad crop out (depressiom)while it’s still at the inception stage.
I wrote this blog post right after I had that conversation with ME. I got the direction to come here and say this. I’m speaking to someone right now and I know it is you.
I don’t want you unhappy. You are a source of strength to me, just as I am to you. Your YOU wants to meet you, embrace it.
If you know this post reinstated hope, strength or basically just took your emotions on a journey, do well to drop a comment. And just as how communication isn’t complete without feedback, I desperately await your comments. Share it with me, share it with the world.
Because we live to love and help, do well to share this post with you and yours.
P.S: this wasn’t planned to be a depression awareness post. It just happened.
Here’s my HOTLINE(not bling. Go DRAKE…lol) if you need someone to talk to anytime, any day. – 07085249671
