Intensive Reading - Tam Wai Hang

What are your thoughts and feelings about depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, being different from your peers, and having to put up a front? How do/would you deal with some of these issues?

Such feelings such as depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, being different from one's peers as well as putting up a front are caused by certain events that most teenagers face nowadays. These feelings may be likely caused by things such as exam stress or relationships between two person. Some of these people try to put up a strong front and deceive others, but in the end they are actually deceive themselves. The more they put up a strong front, the more hurt they will get as the others around will not know of how he or she actually feels. This is why I think that one should learn to let go and not bear too many grudges against other people. They should learn how to perceive the happenings in another way, in other words, not be narrow-minded. If one learns to let go of some things that does not go according as planned, so such feelings such as depression would not form. Even if perceiving the situation in another does not help, he or she should not try and shut the problems away. This is because it can easily cause depression, or even trigger dissociative identity disorder, which is formed as another personality of oneself that has memories of something bad that happens. This split personality will display behaviors that are mostly destructive. This is why I think it is important to effective deal with these issues as quickly as possible, thus preventing one from getting such feelings like depression or loneliness.
