We all claim to be woke yet the level of depression is on the rise. People daily losing themselves and succumbing to the pressure that is social media.

The average person is surrounded and drowned with toxicity from work, to supposed friends and spouses which is harmful, poisonous and debilitating to the mental, physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing.

Everyone tells you ‘you are stronger than you believe’, you’ve held on for this long you can hold on for longer, Don’t give up, keep pushing. Trust me they love you and want your best interest at heart but you know yourself more than anyone. The moment you start to lose yourself, lose your worth, doubt your capabilities and the drive and enthusiasm to work is no longer there, that’s toxic for you my dear. People will tell you to not quit, living in Nigeria is hard, there are no jobs out there but staying on a job that puts you in an ugly mental state is just as terrible.

Depression is real my dear. Working in a place where you’re treated with no value and respect, where the work environment constantly threatens your esteem, means it’s probably time to go and to never look back. Planning your exit is crucial but if you cannot tolerate the job for another second, then by all means quit. Sometimes when we take bold steps, things somehow just work out. The universe listens and brings resources, connections our way.

Toxicity can come through people, those ‘frenemies’ that make snide remarks about your progress, that just drain you of your energy, that make you feel sad when you’re around them, that you constantly feel the need to impress, Please dear avoid them. Friends are important but when they make you feel less of a person for wanting more in life and always advice to settle, to be mediocre then maybe it’s time to let them go.

You are much more than you can imagine if only you’ll take charge of your life and guard it jealously from toxicity, whatever form it may appear.

    I can totally relate to the toxicity in the work place and how extremely difficult it can be to quit especially when you have responsibilities and also when some people feel “you have it all”. Sanity is still and will always be king. Watch your mental health guys!

    I totally agree with this one…

    In a society as our present society it’s most profitable that we take deliberate steps in shielding ourselves from depression.

    The same way we understand success is deliberate, this same measure should be applied to depression..

    It start from the first stage of shutting out any unneeded information from the media and the likes.
    Control what goes into your mind.
    Cause what goes in has the power to either destroy or build..

    More wins girl.
