Tackling depression during tough times

Although cyclones cause disasters, they are the highest points these depressions reach.

Whenever I look at the clouds or see cyclones, all I can think of the reasons why they are caused; depressions. According to science, depressions are low-pressure areas in the atmosphere. Towards which cold air rushes and lifts it to finally reach its highest peak; a cyclone.

That’s a metaphor for life, don’t you think. Just like the depressions in the atmosphere, there are depressions in people’s hearts, their mental health; pulling them down. When other people notice these depressions in them, they instinctively rush towards them to make them feel better, to talk them out of it, to ‘lift them’.

Although cyclones cause disasters, they are the highest points these depressions reach. This entire process gives out a beautiful message. Just like how the winds rush into a depression, people should rush towards others in need. In the past, people did so without thinking. Humans being made of all the five elements, acted just like nature, when they rushed towards depressions in the atmosphere. Although this has slowed down now, people have become more self-centered and cautious. They want to avoid trouble and responsibility at all costs. Now isn’t that something that needs to change?
