Second in line on the mental health issues, to me, is being left out. When I say being left out, it needn’t necessarily be physically done to you. It may just be a feeling of being out of the picture or as I say it, out of frame.
What do you call a person who has the strongest connectivity circle of people to back them up anytime? : The most richest person in the world. (In my opinion).
We’ve all seen the “left out” characters played on-screen by actors. But have you realized that most movies are based on temporal things of this world? Thereby I imply that these characters aren’t actually fictional, many of them do exist. As per the format of my prequel on mental health called Feeling empty, I’d like to list some symptoms that you may be depressed due to being left out, to the best of my knowledge. You know you’re feeling so if :
- You’re pretty social, and even as you’re hanging out with your circle, you feel so alone.
- You constantly find yourself wondering about your purpose in life, when some mishap happens and you’re not given enough care and attention.
- You find yourself leading a controversial life, wherein you attend many social gatherings, yet complain about being isolated from society.
- Friends subtly start showing signs of being nonchalant, upon your absence.
- You start finding comfort in more of me-time.
- And finally, you cave in and presume that everything good which may occur in life, henceforth, will fade away. In other words, you grow into it and reduce your expectations to a lower benchmark.
I’ve covered all of what I think may be signs of feeling left out. I do have a few tried solutions for this. And hey, If I’ve made through that well enough to write this blog, then I’d claim them effective.
- Go on walks with soothing music of your choice and let your sad feelings into the open air.
- Cry it out.
- If that doesn’t work, find your most trust-worthy person and spill your feelings to them.
- For some people, I hear working out intensely gives relief. I cycle for instance.
- Try dressing up even if there isn’t an occasion. It boosts self-confidence.
- Please avoid stalking “stereotypically happy” people on social media.
- Get a pet (if you need long-time happiness).
- Understand that all things may come and go, but your “self” is with you forever.
Tell me if that helped at all.
– Shreyy, who thinks being left out is the easiest way to get rid of worldly drama!
P.S.: You have to be outside the frame, to see the big picture! Cheer up!! 🙂
