Why Don’t You Tell The World How Much You Earn?

In my previous post I put forward the thought and study on how every time someone is sad, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are going through depression.

I have seen people speak out loud to the entire world how they are suffering from a particular disease. Someone has cancer; someone has depression; someone has some other disease. Everyone has some health problem or the other. But does it mean that you should shout out loud and make the entire World hear your health problems? No!

That is why your medical reports are directly handed to you instead of being put up on a billboard.

Your health, your problem, your report, your diagnosis, your life! You need to handle it on your own. You don’t have to tell the world that you are suffering from Schizophrenia or any other disease.

For one, it doesn’t help. And secondly, there is practically no evidence that this will make you feel better. You want to talk about your disease? Talk to someone you know; a friend, a psychologist or a family member. 7.2 billion people don’t need to know about your swollen lymphnodes.

No one blogs about how much they earn. No one shouts at the top of their voice the amount they get credited into their account every month

So why go around crying and wallowing in self pity just because your body doesn’t function like someone else’s?

  1. I see differently… you do help others… just because it didn’t help you specifically, doesn’t mean it doesn’t help someone out there.

    When I had my cancer – it was other people’s stories and photos that helped me through that…

    And I share as well, because of how they helped me – I now help other men and women get through that.

    It is not a pity party… but only so others may relate if they are doing through something similar.

    Sometimes people feel alone and a connection or something can make all the difference … we should be sharing and supporting each other.

    If it does not relate to you then it doesn’t – but doesn’t mean it doesn’t mean the world to someone else. ✌️

  2. I’m not sure I agree with you on this one. I appreciate your opinion all the same but I think the stigma around things like mental illness prevents people from seeking the help they need. By hearing others speak openly and honestly about their struggles it can encourage others to reach out and seek the help they need. As Omatra7 said above – these stories can really help others if not the person sharing it. Of course it doesn’t make it any less their responsibility but I think encouraging others to speak up is far better then telling them to keep it to themselves.
