Stress n’ Depression

Why does stress exist??? WHY?? Especially, for the most unnecessary reasons!!!

Stress poster (1)Stress n’ Depression, is something I keep going through. Sometimes, it’s worse, sometimes it’s not that bad. Last year, one day I couldn’t handle it, and I denounced Buddhism for ever (been more of Free Thinker anyway). Ah!! The extremist evils, of religion. Of Race!! Of nationality!! Fake Patriotism!! False Pride!! I don’t belong here!! How do I escape it!!
Stress PostThis weekend was pretty bad for me!! Saturday, uncalled for stress, started, thanks to the most silliest of arguments. It just got worse, and worse!! Lankan bloody Buddhism has brought me sooo much of bad luck in my life! This hypocritical country. Saturday evening, there was a social event in Siripura, the private housing scheme I live in (an event I’d been looking forward to, especially ‘cause I do love to socialise, but happen to be a recluse in this country, for very good reasons); but the way I was stressed, I just didn’t feel like attending. But I did!! Splashed cold water on my eyes, dressed up fashionably (despite my hideously bulky appearance, which too happens to be a result of depression, and medication), a cowboy hat, boots et al; went down there, smiled at everyone, danced, suppressing my pain, postponing it, a little; and nobody could ever guess what I really was going through!! Am glad I went. For next day, Sunday!! Things worsened!! Meanwhile, my elder dog is ill too!! Sometimes I worry, whether the negative atmosphere of this doggist nation, and my depression, has rubbed off on her too. But, no, I’ve seen her jump up in joy, even when, the most viciously dog hating humans, pass by our gate; even if they poke a stick to hurt her, she thinks they are playing with her!!

My stress hasn’t gone off yet. Stress comes on and off, on a regular basis, but when it sticks on, it takes a while to get off! The last thing I wanted to do was Blog about it. But here I am. This is my second Blog Post, related to my mental strain (See my post Day of Depression from September 2015; or don’t, it’s best to forget it, completely)
Stress poster (2)

Trying my best to stay sane, in an archaically; crude, inhumane, ignorant, foolish, cheap; society; that I never really belonged in!!!

Hope this heaviness I feel, on my head, and my chest, physical/psychological, goes away ASAP!! And I get back to blogging!!!

Been tweeting for a whole year now. Time sure flies.
I’ve been tweeting about films, Birthdays, anniversaries, travel, news you name it. But most of all, I’ve been tweeting quotes. No, not quotes by famous personalities, but my own. Making up my own quotes, from my own life experiences. My Copyright  🙂

Thus, today being the 1st anniversary of my Twitter account, I thought I’d share some of my (not yet famous) quotes with my fellow bloggers.

If anyone wants to re-quote me, you are more than welcome.
Plus most of you blog-pals, I’ve been following on twitter, and vice versa. But if there is anyone else whose twitter account I’ve missed out on, do follow me at NuwanSen@Nuwansenfilmsen, and I shall definitely follow you back, ASAP.

Cheers

My QUOTE of the DAY

The greater philosopher a man is,
the more difficult it is for him to answer,
 the foolish questions of common people.
                            -Henryk Sienkiewicz
                                (1846-1916)

Henryk Sienkiewicz was a noble prize winning Polish novelist, of the Victorian & Edwardian eras. Although I haven’t read any of his famed masterpieces, I saw this quote in a newspaper, some years ago. Then and there, I cut it and pasted it on the wall. One of my favourite quotes. Henryk Sienkiewicz is most famous for having authored some brilliant historical works of fiction. Am most keen on reading, the English translation of, Sienkiewicz’s epic, Quo Vadis (published in 1895), set in Rome around 64 AD, under the rule of Emperor Nero. In fact, this brilliant quote is from Quo Vadis itself.

My QUOTE of the DAY

Depth of friendship,
 does not depend on,
 length of acquaintance.
                            -Ravindranath Tagore
                                (1861-1941)

Ravindranath Tagore (a.k.a. Rabindranath Tagore) was a Bengali literary mastermind of Contextual Modernisation, from Calcutta, in the Bengal Presidency (now in the state of West Bengal), in India (under the British Raj). The famed poet/writer/artist reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art nationwide, in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. Tagore became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.

My QUOTE of the DAY

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness,
for lovely eyes, seek out the good in people,
for a slim figure, share your food with the hungry,
for beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers
through it once a day,
for poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
– Audrey Hepburn
(1929-1993)

Audrey Hepburn, photographed, by Richard Avedon

When Audrey Hepburn; one of the most beautiful, talented, kind-hearted & sophisticated, actresses that ever lived; was asked to share her beauty tips, she wrote something really unexpected. The above quote is a small portion of her unique advice to young girls (which can be attributed to young boys too) on how to truly be a beautiful person, both in the inside as well as outside. Audrey Hepburn besides being a talented actress, and a fashionista, with a unique sense of style, was a child war hero (during WW-II), and a philanthropist, who gave her latter life to help poverty stricken children around the globe. She was also appointed as the Goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, in 1989. A contributor to the UNICEF since 1954, she worked for the organisation from 1988, till close to her demise from cancer, in January 1993, aged 63.

Silver Screenings (Ruth), a Classic Film Blogger
