About a month ago, Aamir Khan’s daughter, Ira opened up on battling clinical depression. She shared a video in which she spoke about her depression on a public platform. It happened to be World Mental Health Day on which she shared the video. It quickly went viral and since then, Ira has been sharing a lot of videos wherein she can be seen talking and encouraging people to speak up on the importance of mental health. Recently, Ira shared a video in which she has spoken about how people easily dish out advises to people who are battling depression on how to overcome it.
When she shared her story, Ira revealed that words like ‘stay positive’, ‘work out’, ‘stay busy’ were out in the comments section after her video came out. She spoke about them saying that different people react differently to depression. She revealed she had taken up working out and was jumping from one activity to another activity. However, the advise that her doctors, her father, Kiran Rao and those who knew her was exactly opposite to what others said. They asked her to stop doing whatever she is doing and breathe and stay calm.
“I used to work out a lot, but now I’m scared of working out, which is frustrating because I loved working out a lot,” Ira could be heard saying. The video post intends to make people aware that talking, discussing and advising on mental health should not be taken lightly as different people may need different strategy and time period to overcome the same. “What to say to someone who’s depressed? Part 1,” she captioned the post, adding, “What can you say to someone who’s depressed as way of advice when you don’t really know how their depression is effecting them? What should you say? What should you not say?” Check out the video below:
