Black And White

Depression is like being colorblind,
And to be constantly reminded,
How colorful the world is.

But if you want to color my world,
Do it with body language instead,
A smile, a wave, a warm embrace.

Commentary: It’s counterproductive to try to change someone’s mind. Because whatever you say, they’ve heard it all before. Their default come back is: “Tell me something new!” And don’t even think about asking: “If you know this, why don’t you ever put it into practice?”, because then all communications will shut down.
A better way is to try to persuade the heart; show, don’t tell. A smile will feel like a summer breeze. A wave will wash the blues away. And a hug will make you feel warm all over.
