Depression

One of my friends complained that I write articles that carry negative connotation. Yes, I do. There's a reason. Whenever I feel sad, I need an outlet. I chose my blog because I knew I could never get people to read it. So, it would stay private. I don't want anyone to read this. But one day, when I die because of one of these reasons, I want people to know that I wasn't a happy man.

This happened today. I went to play Cricket. I didn't know playing cricket could hurt my emotions.

One match, I argued with the captain that I wanted to stand in the front for fielding replacing the person who had been keeping and had bowled two overs. Pissed off by this, he left captaincy for the next match. I got the message. I played silently. I didn't even ask to bowl. Since I had not bowled, I thought they would ask me to bat first. They didn't. I left.

I know how it feels to be invisible. I have been around people who behave like I don't exist. It has hurt me. I've been depressed. I've been neglected. Just because I raised my voice once today, I'd become an outcast. I went home. I cried. Listened to my "SAD" playlist. Wrote this. One of the worst things about life is that you don't remember your emotions. Time makes them disappear.

Here I am, a social outcaste. A person suffering from anxiety and depression. Dropped an year of college. Struggling to live. Everyday is a battle.

And clearly, I'm a loser.

Vasan - An Experience

I recently went to Vasan Eye Care with my friend to get his eyes tested. I've been to Vasan before. I love the experience. People are friendly. Admission and consultation are quick. They really know how to provide customers with the money's worth.

Now coming to the point, in reference to the article I've written recently, Vasan provides a service that is enviable. For a venture of our country, it has high standards. I'm happy to see that a Desi venture now stands against the best and expensive conglomerates like Columbia Asia and Apollo.

One of the best experiences I've had in years and I'm grateful.
