How I lost someone close to my heart (depresssion)

Last year I lost someone, he was my best friend and someone very close to heart, I never knew he was sick till I was called one morning 2days to his birthday that he was dead. It felt like a bad prank, oh I wanted it to be not until I tried all his numbers, sent him a messages no reply that’s when reality struck me and it felt like the whole world was crashing down on me.

For days I didn’t go out, I cried my eyes out, if only crying could bring someone back from the dead, am sure he would still be here. I refused to talk to anyone. Then one day I put his picture as a dp(Display Picture) on my bbm and then one of my friend on my contact list saw the picture and also my tributes to him and he said to me, babe who don die don die, don’t kill yourself jare. I know to him it was his own way of consoling me, but it did more harm than good because I started thinking of many things to do to myself to take away the pains I was feeling that moment because I have lost so many people in my life that I don’t know how to cope anymore. Some people in my shoes would had committed suicide or become suicidal.

What am I trying to say? I am saying Depression is real even if we don’t take it too serious in our country it is real.

Try as much as possible to be close to someone that has lost someone, try and console them, take them out, do things for them that would get their mind off people they have lost, someone might ask why would he/her waste their time doing all these? It simple – you might just be saving someone’s life…
