Lord Samantha Ruth, in a recent event, stressed the importance of seeking help for mental health issues. There is pressure to show a ‘perfect’ life on social media, but ‘no one’s life is perfect,’ he said.
Speaking at the launch of Psychiatry at Your Doorstep by the Roshini Trust and the Tudla Foundation on Saturday, Samantha said, “We live in a stressful world that focuses more on portraying the right life, even on social media. It is becoming more and more difficult to talk about our weaknesses, pains, worries, etc. because there is so much focus … Being so active on social media, I have noticed the pressure of portraying the right life. Whose life is not perfect, trust me.
“I think it’s time for people like us, like me, to talk not only about glitter and glamor, but also about pain, suffering, depression. It’s natural for all of us to go through it, it’s very normal to talk about it and ask for help,” he added.
Samantha cited her own example, saying that talking to others has helped her to overcome a ‘difficult time’ in her life. “I went through a difficult time in my life and asked for help. I sought the help of my friends and counselors. It has made a huge difference in my life. I am sitting here today. That’s why it helped to be strong, “he said.
