The title might be partially misleading. Let me explain. Yesterday I was feeling very down. My cousin called me up coincidentally and after that I felt better. Last year, one day I was crying badly. I called up my brother. Let me mention he was in his final year of engineering. (Now he has to give his final exams) When I talked to him , I felt better. My best friend who is 4 years younger to me 2 days ago met me personally to comfort me. There is another friend 3 years younger to me. When I used to share my feelings she told me that we should let each other know when we are feeling low by texting or calling and speaking a code.
Thanks to my cousin(mentioned above) …she gave me contact number of a mental health helpline in India(for readers who are reading my post for the first time or don’t know-I am an Indian). This helpline is definitely helpful but is my last resort. The first person with whom I share feelings is me, why ? I want to be emotionally independent.
