My inspiration for this free Ebook on depression came from the 1000+ comments to the post on my blog, NochNoch, “10 things not to say to a depressed person”, I realized that there was a marked misunderstanding between the depressed and those who are not. Perhaps it was someone who wanted to help but did not know how, or depressed persons who could not communicate their lethargies to others. A rift ensued, fuelling anger, frustration, and even hatred and despite. Having been on both sides, I decided to write about this, in the aim of elucidating my perspectives on how we could communicate with empathy and help those who needed it.
Even if I would not win the Pulitzer prize, but if this Ebook could help just one person out there, somewhere, then my wish is fulfilled — to raise awareness of depression and to help, in my own little way. Feel free to read online, download, and forward to anyone you think could benefit from this. No subscriptions, no emails, no obligations — I only ask that this be shared as widely as possible to help raise awareness towards mental and emotional well-being.
