- Losing interest in what you once enjoyed is a symptom of having a depression
- All problems have its own solution and failure is just a part of growing up, to become a better version of yourself
- His main advice for all who are depressed is to “Think positively!”
In life, we face failures, discouragement, problems, and pain that sometimes we choose to hide them within ourselves. Unconsciously, we become prisoners of our own problems and ending one’s life has become the final solution for some people.
This is what we call “depression,” a common and serious illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think, and how you act. Losing interest in what once you enjoyed is a symptom of having depression. And if not detected and treated, it can be a threat to one’s life, like Kurtiee John Cairo Hierco who committed suicide because of depression.
Brye-brye Bendaño Ortega posted on his Facebook account that a good friend took his own life because of depression.
“Dear, depression. One good friend took his own life because of you. Nagtagumpay ka na naman. May susunod pa kaya? Sana naman ay wala.”
According to him, this is for those who can’t visit a specialist. “Depression” comes in a time when we cannot accept an unexpected situation that may happen to ourselves. And it is a matter of accepting that everything doesn’t work the way we want it to be, but that all we have to do is learn to face reality.
“All problems have their own solutions and failure is just a part of growing up to become a better version of ourselves,” this was Ortega’s words of encouragement to all who are depressed, and he continues that “if something’s not working or going right, then let life go on.
“If something’s not working or going right, then move forward. Life goes on. And if plans A, B, and C don’t work, remember, andaming letra sa alphabet.”
For all those who are brokenhearted, though it is really painful to accept that love is gone, only time can heal the scars. If a relationship won’t work the way you wanted to, then leave it because you cannot force someone to love you. And there will come a time that someone would accept and love you for being who you are.
“Kung hindi na talaga mag work out ang relationship, wag nang ipilit. Love without love is like a flower that doesn’t blossom, pale, boring. Meron at merong magmamahal sa’tin sa kung ano at meron tayo.”
For him “Acceptance is the key” as he believes “Everything happens for a reason.” As he asked, “Why dwell on something that’s not making us happy anymore? We all want to be happy after all.
Ang sarap mabuhay. Maikli na nga ang buhay, pinapaikli pa natin lalo.”
His main advice for all who are depressed is to “Think positively” and with the guidance of Almighty God, the first person who can help yourself is you rather than taking your own life.
“Isipin mo pamilya mo, ang kinabukasan nila at kinabukasan mo, mga kaibigan at mga taong nagmamahal sa’yo.”
Reach out and learn to open up to the people who love you, with what you’re going through, and they will not give you only their time but they would do anything just to make you feel better. And most important is to pray and trust God for He has a better plan for us all.

Mga Kawikaan 3:5-6
Tumiwala ka sa Panginoon ng buong puso mo, at huwag kang manalig sa iyong sariling kaunawaan:
Kilalanin mo Siya sa lahat ng iyong mga lakad, at kaniyang ituturo ang iyong mga landas.
And for his best friend who passed away, it was too late for them to notice that he was struggling with depression. That all those times, he was just wearing a mask to hide his true feelings and suddenly gave up and took his life.
At para sa isang butihing kaibigan, Kurtiee John Cairo Hierco, alam naming masaya ka kung nasaan ka man ngayon. You no longer feel pain am sure. Lahat nagtatanong kung bakit mo ginawa. Tinanong kita kung okay ka lang at ang sabi oo okay ka pero yun pala ay hindi. Bakit ikaw pa e ang bait mong tao. Pero wala e. Nangyare na. Wala ka na. Ingat ka dyan a. Pakiyakap na lang si Ama at si Papa Jesus para sa’min. Guide mo pamilya mo at mga taong nagmamahal sayo. We’ll see you again, in paradise. Paalam kaibigan.”
