Depression...

It starts from your perception it's almost never seen because you can't tell it from your actions at the early stages.

You would always hide under the facade of smiles, make up or social media hype. You know you are burdened, you know you are weak and frail but never will you accept that. You can't share that pain with anyone, you sometimes can't even tell what it is but you know you are being drained by a more powerful negative energy. That energy is depression.
It happens to the best of us. Nobody is totally immune. Once you feel some form of negativity please and please seek help. Don't shy away, don't hide it, because it won't hide you. Depression makes the strongest man as jelly. Talk to people regularly, don't hide from the world, don't be a lone ranger.  We are humans, we are relational beings. God made us so, you can't change that. Association is necessary for achieving success in life as well as combating that demon called depression.


P.S. This was my response to a friend who asked me what depression is to me.

I will appreciate more practical definitions please.

Thank you.

Make new wins

Don't let old wins keep you from making new wins, I mean of what value is it that you finished University at 19 with a first class if that's all you have in your name and you are 22 now. Make new strides, do new things, win new stuff, get more degrees.

So many folks I know, myself inclusive glow in our old wins. We boast about it for too long ignoring the new wins we have for grabs. Opportunities pass us daily but we are so soaked in our old wins we ignore the juicy and saucy offers we have laid at our door step.

Find new challenges daily, tackle them, let your wins be continual then that is success. Don't baske in your one time old glory and think the lights will always be on you.

The earth rotates daily so is the world moving. Don't be a guy or girl with only old wins. Every year/month/day do something phenomenal. Be phenomenal let everything you do be phenomenal. Never stop learning, never stop getting certificates. Get as much as you can, build your C.V.
Don't stay in that 9-5 job year in year out getting only promotions. Go out and make it big, make a name for yourself. Do something with your life. Above all leave a legacy for the unborn generation.
