Every day, I walk in the streets with people I don’t know. I see how they look, and the expressions on their faces are all different. We may walk on the same street, but our journey is on different paths. No matter what measures the distance of the struggle we have on the inside, we somehow reach the point of understanding each other. We empathize because we humans can connect emotionally.
The perils encountered in this generation has dealt a lot with the issues of mental health. Being diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and traumas at a young age is quite alarming. The causes are coming from miscommunication, social discrimination, cyberbullying, and depressing relationships. As you observe other people, you tend to place yourself in their shoes. Upon doing so, it only breaks your heart. There must be a way. They deserve a better life and future.
“Life is too short to allow today’s transgressions to alter or devour you.” – Mary Brock
