I wrote this piece when I was at my lowest. Insecurity is an emotion we often hide from society, because it makes us feel we are weak. But very few people understand that it's alright to not feel alright. Anxiety and depression go hand in hand. We subdue emotions for so long, that we blame ourselves for everything that goes wrong, even if it isn't our fault.

Another important topic I want to talk about is Therapy being frowned upon in society. Especially in the Indian Society. We find it difficult to open up to our parents, and if they don't understand us, who else are we going to open up to? We as humans have so much pent up anxiety, that it takes a toll on just our mental health, but also our physical health.

My dreams are like a game of tag in the dark.

I am dreaming in shades of hopelessness.

While the world keeps pulling me down, I am trying to hold on.

‘Will I ever be perfect for you?’ I want to scream out loud.

Yes, I am insecure. I am broken. I am far from perfect.

But what right does that give you to point fingers at me?

Don’t you know four fingers are pointing back at you?

You laugh at me, while I sit in a dark empty room, alone.

While you sleep, cradled in the arms of love,

I sleep with broken pieces of a shattered soul.

I am desperately trying to heal.

I know, like it’s all in my head,

But I’m all for healing.
