Mental condition takes a toll on the quality of life. I know, because I suffered from depression when I was younger. That was the turning point in my life. Since then I tried very hard to recover to a healthy state of mind. Depression is like a black hole sucking me into a place where I dread to be, work very hard to get away from, and occasionally fall back into.
Due to my personal experience, I have deep compassion for fellow sufferers of the mind. We have a beautiful mind. For some of us, it torments us and the suffering is real.
Such is the human condition: birth, ageing, sickness and death.
I see this not only in myself, but also in the people around me – ageing of parents, physical suffering in illness and mental suffering.
I sincerely say this prayer for the sake of all who are suffering in one form or another:-
May you be well and happy. May all beings be well and happy.
