Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan may be far from the film world but remains very active on social media. Ira Khan shared a video on ‘World Mental Health Day’ about his depression. There was a lot of discussion everywhere. He has again shared a video on social media. In this, he has opened many secrets related to his life.

In the video shared on social media, Ira Khan is saying, ‘Many people asked me why I am depressed and I will not be able to answer this because I do not know myself. For the past several years, I have been trying to understand this but there is no direct and correct answer. Today I want to tell you about my easy and convenient life. I have never had any problem with money. I have a support system. My parents, my friends, they never gave me any pressure of anything. I knew that if anything happened in my life, I could go to my parents and talk to them. ‘

HINDI VERSION – LINK IN BIO. I never spoke to anyone about anything because I assumed that my privilege meant I should handle my stuff on my own, or if there was something bigger, it would make people need a better answer than “I knew.” It made me feel like I needed a better answer and until I had that answer, my feelings worrying something I should bother anyone else with. No problem was big enough to ponder too long about. What would anyone do? I had everything. What would anyone say? I had said it all. I still think a small part of me that thinks thinking making all this up, that I have nothing to feel bad about, that thought not trying hard enough, that maybe you’re over reacting. Old habits die hard. It takes me feeling my worst to make myself believe that it’s bad enough to take seriously. And no matter how many things I have, how nice to me people are because of my dad, how nice to me people are because they love and care about me … if I feel a certain way, a certain not nice way, then how much can rationally trying to explain these things to myself do? Should have I instead get up and try and fix things? And if I did do that for myself? Should have I ask for help? . . . #mentalhealth #privilege #depression #repression #divorce #sexualabuse #letstalk #betterlatethannever #letitout #depressionhelp #askforhelp

Ira Khan continues, ‘I stopped taking care of myself. I started sleeping too much. I used to spend time sleeping in the pretext of not living my life. I used to be very busy at first, then gradually I could not get out of bed. Used to participate in different things and promised that I would come but I could not go. Then I stopped participating in things. Then I stopped talking to my friends because my mood started getting worse everyday. I couldn’t even listen to music because you have to be with yourself in that too. So I had to watch TV so that I could confuse myself and not cry. My depression was very big because I am not a person who cries very quickly. I started crying after 17 years. Slowly the cry grew, sometimes it happened but there was no reason. I didn’t know what to do so I ran to the bathroom. I would not have known why I would cry. ‘

Ira Khan is saying, ‘My parents got divorced when I was little, but I have been shocked by that, nothing happened. My parents are still very good friends, there is no scattered family. I had TB when I was 6 years old. So TB was not such a bad thing for me that I am so sad. I was sexually abused when I was 14 years old. So I had no idea what was going on, but when I found out, I walked away from it. Yes, I felt bad why I let this happen to me, but it was not such a big shock of a lifetime that I would go into depression. I am suffocated, I am crying, I can tell my friends and parents, but what to tell. Why would he ask me? So what shall i tell Nothing bad has happened to me as I feel. This thinking kept me from talking to them. ‘
