Media personality and author of the book ‘Dust to Dew’, Betty Irabor has reacted to the news of Harrysong sharing a suicidal note due to his battle with depression.
Sharing on social media, Betty Irabor advised the singer on what to do to get over the depressed state as she praised him on his decision to seek therapy.
“Dear @iamharrysong (And To others whom it may concern) I don’t know you but I know of you. I became curious about you after a post suggesting that you may be going through depression! Since my own bout, I have learnt that many are very ignorant about this mental health issue and show very little empathy for the sufferer.
I am happy you have taken that bold step to open up and seek therapy . Even with therapy, there will be many off days but you must commit to getting better (appreciating how far you have come, celebrating little and major successes and milestones, avoiding negative vibes, find a safe place, don’t overanalyze your current situation; it’s temporary, embrace Talk therapy and not depend solely on antidepressants, pray as if your life depends on it.. it actually does!
“Never forget that thoughts become things; own your positive thoughts, change your negative mindset, choose your perspectives carefully.) The journey to recovery may be frustrating and there could be a relapse but you’re gonna be just fine because the hand of trauma may be long, the good news is that it can be BROKEN. Give your self time to mend and don’t rush the process! Blessings! #dusttodew #depression #mentalhealth #empathy #nonegativevibes.” she concluded.
