On Monday night, singer and actor Mohsin Abbas Haider talked about suffering from depression in a rather troublesome post via his social media. He later deleted the post for some reason.
However, the Na Maloom Afraad actor shared a video last night, thanking all the support he received from his followers. In the video, the actor stated that he is not the kind of person who likes to talk about his personal life but talking about his depression helped him considerably. He stated that sometimes it becomes necessary to let it all out rather than keeping it all in. Even celebrities suffer from depression and we must acknowledge that they are also human beings with emotions. In this view, we must make those around us feel welcome and comfortable.
He stated, “We all are suffering in our lives one way or another. Sometimes, we feel like talking about it and it actually really helps. It helped me a lot,” continued Haider. “I’m not the kind of person who would share his personal life publicly. But when you surpass your limits, I think that’s when talking about it becomes a necessity. And that’s exactly what I did.”
After receiving a positive response regarding his condition from his peers, his faith was reassured that such issues must not be kept hidden. On the contrary, talking about such issues help create awareness and acceptance amongst people. Actors such as Osman Khalid Butt, Ayesha Omar, Tooba Siddiqui reached out to the young star regarding his mental health condition.
