Depression & Anxiety || Raduno Africa

Hey TPJays,  so I am partnering with  Raduno Africa on this one and we are fighting depression and anxiety together, you are not alone.

There is a big chance that you know someone suffering from depression or anxiety, it could even be you. Do not think you can't be depressed because you are black or African -  male or female. That's a scam anyone can be depressed. Once you notice any significant sign see a doctor or speak to a loved one.

In my opinion, both depression and anxiety come from the same place which is sadness. It is okay to be sad, it's healthy but do not dwell on the things that make you sad always remember to snap out of sadness by doing the things that make you happy. In fact treat yourself to something you have always wanted just to calm your nerves. You deserve it. "Happiness does not depend upon who you are. It solely depends on what you think" - Dale Carnegie.

Do not wallow in negativity, it builds up to depression. "Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results" - Willie Nelson.

I can't really pinpoint what causes depression but here are some of the things that leads to depression; life events (the loss of a loved one, divorce, relationships, financial problems e.t.c.), personality traits (an over-thinker has a higher chance of getting depressed, a perfectionist too), drug abuse.

We all need to take our mental health seriously and learn to cut everything that tries to come for our mental health.


  • Constantly get out of depressed moods such as feeling sad, empty, hopeless.
  • Cut yourself some slack and stop pressurizing yourself.
  • Be active.
  • Don't isolate yourself (I know sometimes isolation seems to be the perfect coping mechanism but know when to be out and about and when to be in).
  • Don't punish yourself for being a bad place instead do things to cheer you up.

In conclusion, when sadness is greater than happiness it tilts towards depression and anxiety, strive to be happy all the time and remember your happiness comes first.

In order to fight depression and anxiety we need to come together, so you all really need to come out for this event. Save the date, hope to see you there.

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!!
