The older I get the more pissed off I get about certain things and at the same time I start carrying less and less about others.

What makes me angry lately is the fact that more and more young people find being weak cool. All I hear from them is that they are suffering from depression, they are tired, they are suffering from some kind of mental disorder or physical defect, or because this and that... It is all I hear from people lately. Complaining about everything, about poor wellbeing, about job, about lack of energy to do anything extra for themselves. They have nothing to talk about because they do nothing after school or work. They have no stories to tell because all of them are following the same “celebrities”, watching the same YouTube clips, getting drunk together over the weekend. The older I get the more pissed off I get about certain things and at the same time I start carrying less and less about others.

I live in UK now so this is the reality I am referring to, but I was born and raised in Poland. When I was a teen I knew nothing about depression. First time I heard about it was related to Nirvana and Kurt Cobain who was still very popular at that time. But none of my friends was into it so we stayed away from this fashion to be sad all the time. None of us was ever talking, over and over again, how depressed they are or how hard life is. We were all excited about thing, bands we were in, movies we saw, crazy stuff we did after school, fights, girls and more. Every day was like an adventure, exciting and full of activities. And all I see now is sad face, no energy and some kind of crazy race who has more “defects” or who is in worst situation. What The Fuck?! 1 in 2 people I talk to have depression. They are not able to go to the gym, see a band performing, or put effort to create something meaningful. And because people do not talk to each other but just exchange feeds, snaps or whatever is popular now, more and more people cry about having a depression. But wait a minute! Did you go to a specialist who diagnosed you with depression? Did you get a prescription or some kind of treatment? Is your body Prozac deficient or something? NO! You just feel sad from time to time, a bit mellow because it is raining again, just like every normal person does from time to time, but you have to call it depression and try to suck some attention from people around you? 

Oh, come on! More and more people are talking about being depressed, but all they are is just lazy and weak. Do not get me wrong, I am not talking about REAL depression; I am talking about begging for attention. OK, you can say that - "but you had to fight wolves in a pit to survive when you were 6, and you were raised by frost giants, so you do not know how it is to be sad and tired". So what? Do you think I am in any way different than you? That I am not at my deepest down from time to time? Yes I am, maybe even more often that I want to admit but I am not going to walk around and brag about me being sad/unhappy/not well. So why should you? We need to be strong. We need to be strong for ourselves. Only then we will be able to be strong for everyone we care!
