#TheGreaterFolk : Hi, I'm Shrishti D. Sugla, a Digital Marketeer and aspiring voice-over artist. I'm also actively trying to change the landscape of how small businesses use various platforms to tell their story.
I'm painted with #Depression .
#🌼 What was your lowest point and what was your positive takeaway from it?
My lowest point was when I was 17-years-old; the environment at home was extremely toxic to live in because of my grandparents. They made it really difficult for my parents, my sister and I to live at home peacefully.
I was completely shattered when I realized that all this while they were trying to make sure we don't have a home to live in.
That was the first time I acknowledged how I felt and stopped pretending that everything was okay.
From the ages of 17 to 21, I was severely depressed and didn't know it until my father diagnosed me. Ever since then, life hasn't been the same. I have not been able to share my life easily with another person.
My positive takeaway from it was to acknowledge how I feel, talk about it and deal with it in the right way, instead of pretending everything is okay.
Over the years I have become headstrong and built healthy relationships, and this is the first time I'm sharing a small portion of my life on a public platform.
#🌼 Your go-to self care activity?
Journaling, listening to podcasts that help me focus, or some lo-fi mixes, and eating comfort food.
