Somya Seth Of 'Navya' Shares Her Suicidal Thoughts During Pregnancy, Pens How She Was Forced To Live

Don't we all crave to have a life that celebrities or prominent names live? Though it looks attractive and we often fantasise basking the glory at some point of time, it's not how it looks like from outside. In reality, it's a mysterious world which can break you into pieces and comes with a very high price. For us, that's the side which is definitely greener, but the ones who have tasted the fame, crave for normalcy. No matter what they go through in real life, they are expected to flash their best smile on social media and every outing of theirs. (Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput Felt 'Indebted' To His Ex-Girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, Reveals Stylist Leepakshi)

Sushant Singh Rajput's demise by suicide on June 14, 2020, has paved way for discussions on mental health, the loneliness accompanied by fame and depression. While a lot of celebs have raised their concern on mental health and have taken a step towards the awareness of the same, Sushant's demise has made everyone wonder how serious we are for this escalating issue of the world. Navya fame, Somya Seth too, pens her journey with depression and how she had battled the suicidal thoughts when she was pregnant.

Somya Seth had left the industry post her marriage with a US-based businessman beau, Arun Kapoor in 2017 but a few months into it, she had suffered depression. Somya had embraced motherhood in 2018 and during her pregnancy phase, she had fought with the inner suicidal thoughts. Elaborating on the same, Somya posted screenshots of her notes which revealed what she was going through back then. Captioning her long note, Somya wrote, "Never imagined I would share my personal notes ever !! But hoping this could help someone who wants to hear it."

The first slide of Somya Seth's post says 'Suicide', followed by, "SUICIDE. Yes, a very difficult word. When you reach to that point turn around pick up your phone and talk to a friend or call helpline numbers. But what if you don't have a phone OR can't talk to a friend, family or loved one... Then what?? Then you look at yourself in a mirror and talk with that person- the person breathing in and out infront of you in the mirror never gave up on you. This person is You and You are destined to live. Let that person know this isn't your fault and you will LIVE. You will see days full of sunshine and happiness and smiles!! You will live to see everything gets better!! You have seen beautiful days in the past and you will see it again. Probably this time (right now) isn't the time you want to live. This is just some bad time!! But just the way after every night, there has to be a sunny beautiful day. After bad times, there has to be some great times ahead the only thing standing between you and good times is the present time. The dreamers Hope!! The achievers have strong Faith!!" (Also Read: Shweta Tiwari Gives A Befitting Reply To Estranged Husband, Abhinav Kohli For Harassing Her Daughter)

Speaking of the suicidal thoughts she had faced and how she had looked for ideas to kill herself, Somya Seth's note continued, "Faith that isn't permanent!! Your life matters so much to this entire world. You are the reason the world will be a better place!! Once you let this moment pass by, the next one won't be same and you will breathe better and better every day. And while you live, you will inspire millions to live and fight for what is right. Your smile will heal the world. Your laughter is the strength the future needs. Suicidal thoughts are a result of mental health. I want awareness. I know in the past I have fought my suicidal thoughts for few months. Behind that sweet smile and loving nature - I was hiding my suicidal thoughts. I attended events. Greeted everyone with hugs and smiles. Laughed with them. But as people left for their home, I used to look for ideas to kill myself. I was disgusted and disappointed with my life. I looked at myself in the mirror couldn't believe it was me - I saw bruises on my hands & my face- my head was throbbing in pain. The life inside me had died. I was breathing but found it useless!! I felt abandoned and unloved."

Concluding with why she didn't do it and was forced to live, Somya Seth urged people to seek help in her last paras. Somya wrote, "But I didn't do it. I couldn't do it. I had to live. Almost like I was forced to live. I was pregnant. If it was just me- I would have done it. But that wasn't my case. What made me angry was that no one REALLY knows the truth! Today, I know people who committed suicide were probably as strong as you and I. SUSHANT included. Remember PRATYUSHA. Sometimes even civilised cities, successful careers, or amazing looking families can make people feel hostile. I know everyone is there for everyone. But if that was true, no one ever would be lonely. To anyone who has any suicidal thoughts, please know you have loved ones who would really listen. And if you can't figure out who it is then just look at yourself in the mirror. You are amazing and you deserve all the amazingness this world has to offer. Be strong and inspire others to be stronger."
