Sweet Depression as per the name, is a book written to capture different emotions and sensations in a person’s lifetime. May it be a heartbreak or a low in your life that tears you apart. I wrote it in a genre that anyone from any age group could fall in love with the deepness of expression this book has to offer. Taking the perspective of my mother and father’s relationship and how it affected my own self growing up. This is a book about the loving, hurting and healing that one heart has to bear- yet it remains in place. Including intricate poetry and imagery to add the sense of euphoria into the book- the writer doesn’t fail to draw the reader into tears.
As you proceed through each chapter, you become part of the book as it fully closes you in. With terms such as ‘her’ and ‘him’, the book doesn’t contain any distinctive characters which makes it easier for the reader to take anyone personal as a perspective-like the words that are usually sumbergered within you- but you couldn’t fully process them to let it out. As described by some people, “it is therapy in a book” . Each of the seven chapters beautifully describe the pain of trauma, anxiety and depression.
For anyone going through any obstacle in life- take this book as a safe space as it feels like you are reconnecting with someone- someone who will finally be able to understand you and dig what’s burdened up.
