“You don't have to control your thoughts, you just have to stop letting them control you.”

-Dan Millman

With the advancement in technological resources and automation in life, we believed the world will become a better place to live in.

Somehow we forgot one of the most important necessity that helps us to survive. That behaviour was social etiquette. As a human, it is expected form us to show help, care and love for other people. We kept on advancing as a technology and we kept becoming obsolete in emotional support.

This surrounding left us with the increasing number of anxious and depressing society. People are becoming more and more eccentric and deprived of love.

According to a recent study, one of every four Indians are affected by anxiety disorder. The irritated colleague, the weepy spouse, the cleanliness-obsessed-in-law and the speeding driver full of road rage are common examples of depression and anxiety disorder.

We many not see it but we can sense the odd behaviours. Try to spot people around you suffering from any mental illness and help them by talking, providing them the counsel and guiding them to a healthy and balanced life.

Mental health is not a disease, it's a society prevalent problem which can be handled, improved and removed.
