Ira Khan recently came forward to express and share her mental battle with depression. With her post, she made it very clear that she is not expecting any solutions or advice from strangers but rather simply trying to share her experience so that people who are suffering from this disease can come forward and talk about their situation.
In her post, she said that she intends to create a safe space for people to feel free to share their stories and experiences. She also said that she plans on making more informative videos about her story. She made it very clear that she is not looking for advice as she already has the best doctors and emotional support in her life. All she wants is to help people.
In addition to that, she also said that she isn’t bothered by anyone’s opinions. In her post, she wrote, I don’t really get bothered by what people say, in the sense that, from before and now, after my depression, I give people the benefit of the doubt. A lot of people say things that they don’t mean, sometimes because they don’t know. And I find that only when you create a safe space for people to ask the questions that they want to ask, to contradict you when you say something, to see why you’re saying what you’re saying… is when you get somewhere.”
She captioned the post by thanking everyone for encouraging her and giving her legit positive vibes. She added, “Thank you for all the encouraging comments but let’s discuss. Tell me what you agree with, what you disagree with, what your opinions are. As long as you aren’t trying to hurt someone, let’s ask the inaskable, the weird, the uncomfortable or the obvious. No judgement.”
