  1. I dont know what to say .. Not in a position to scold or advise. Its easy advising and i hate that. All i can do right now is a hug.. Hugs to you arjun😃😃

    1. Advising without prior knowledge or information is myopic. Advises that come after knowing the views are the most valuable ones.

  2. I’ve seen this in social media too. There is a pattern and a mindset that start to develop in depressed people, something like – no one cares about me, I’m hopeless but at least people give me attention when I share how unlovable I am – The ones that give the hearts and likes are showing sorrow and pity for the depressed people, not empathy.
    I think this is awful and should not be encouraged.

    1. Exactly. People share and like their posts thinking it would show their support but instead it ends up reinforcing the behaviour
