Ankita Konwar is super active on Instagram. From sharing her mesmerising selfies to yoga photos and romantic pictures with hubby Milind Soman, Ankita's social media posts are a treat to her followers. On Wednesday, Ankita shared a picture of herself wherein she is smiling for the camera while sipping a drink. In her caption, she opened up about struggling with depression and anxiety. She requested her followers to get all professional help to navigate their way through life.
She wrote, "A picture from recent past, a day when I had a storm in my head but my face reflected calmness with a smile. Yes, I still have a few days where everything isn't 'fine'. Not everyone who looks 'fine' is actually fine. Things can seem overwhelming and meaningless at the same time. But I don't get scared like I used to."
"After living a long period of anxiety and depression and getting out of it with all the courage I had in me, I still face tiny episodes of dark patches. Way milder, way shorter and way better than the 'all consuming' days I actually lived through," she added.

Ankita continued, "But now, I have gotten stronger, become more positive and I manage to see the bright light through the dark patches. I don't let it consume me, I cry when I have to, I don't hold onto my thoughts like I used to. I let them come and go as they please. It requires a lot of practice but I'm getting better at it. I remember reading somewhere that 'some of us require a little more effort to survive in this world than the rest' and I have finally come to accept that fact. Of course the events and experiences of our lives play a huge role in it. But we must get all the help we can to navigate our way through it."
The 30-year-old then mentioned a list of things that she feels can help people like 'physical and mental exercise, journaling, cutting down on caffeine, reducing alcohol intake, avoiding substance abuse and engaging with friends and family."
"Look at what you have achieved inspite of all the obstacles. If you're having one of those dark days, I'm just here to remind you that your resilience is far stronger than the storm inside your head. Love to all of you," she added.
