Nobody was alone, standing on the precipice of the room. Everybody was already inside. He ignored Nobody in-favour of Somebody. It had always been like this; he entered the room, and Somebody eased the door closed behind him. He sat at the back of the classroom, where hopefully, Nobody would be noticed.
The discussion between the two was inane, pointless.
“How was your day?” Somebody asked.
“It was ok, it was great, and it was amazing” Everybody always said it.
“Terrible,” Nobody said, “Absolutely terrible, Everybody hates me.”
Everybody ignored that, how else was he to respond? It was a stupid comment, and it would ruin Somebody’s day. Only Nobody would ever say that, and so Nobody sat alone and ignored as Everybody played.
Did you know that according to Beyond Blue.
“3 million Australians are living with anxiety and depression?”
Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Although little talked about, it is estimated that on average, one in six people – one in five women and one in eight men – will experience depression at some stage of their lives.
Disability is a leading cause of suicide, and it is believed up to fifteen percent of people with depression die by suicide.
Have you experienced depression in the past? Have you assisted or no of anyone experiencing depression? Please leave your support and comments below.
