Deepika Padukone Talks About Her Battle With Depression

Depression isn’t a fad or a fashion statement. It’s a mental disorder which affects almost every individual once in his/her lifetime, unknowingly or knowingly.  Often shushed in our society or told to dealt with the advice, “be happy and don’t take so much tension”, it’s overlooked.  One of our extremely revered actresses, Deepika padukone came out in the open to address her battle w this mental disorder.

The struggle first started with her disruption in her breakup with Ranbir Kapoor. She says that being new to the city and making his life hers, kind of hindered her finding her own. It’s a shame that such talent took so long to be found. The actress first confessed to her mother and her sister about her illness. They were at the time in Bangalore where she continued her treatment. It was with Barkha Dutt, that she came out in public about her battle. It took years of therapy and taking a step back to get her life back in order.

You’d imagine this to be a risky move for a young actress on the top of her game. However, in the long run, her mental well being is what led her success.  She says that you can only truly be happy if you’re happy with yourself first. That’s something we all strive to achieve but somewhere forget along the way. She started her own Organization which helps connect you to the closest therapist and acts as portal for online discussion and awareness about mental health. Deepika Padukone also launched her own clothing brand – all about you to ensure inclusivity for all.

When you see a public figure as herself emerge victorious, you feel that you can also do the same. It’s important to take note of the causes, speak to someone and seek help. There’s no shame in admitting that something isn’t right.
The last takeaway from this is – if you break a leg, you rush to the doctor, get an X-ray and plaster it till the time the bone is healed. Now here, the signs are obvious. With mental health, things are the same but somewhat subtle. If something is not right, seek help and work towards making it right. That’s the only way to truly heal.
