The Illusion

Koorosh Nejad

"'The Illusion' relates to my feelings when I was experiencing depression in 2020. For me, it was like being physically paralysed but my mind was in a whirlpool of thoughts. The thoughts often were the worse case scenarios of what I fear in life, like losing a dear family member. Like short episodes of a bad nightmare, one after the other; moving from bad to worse.

I could stay in that state for hours. I noticed the power of the mind in creating these bad/false thoughts is limitless. When I recall those thoughts, I notice that they are not real, but they were only illusions. However, when I find myself trapped in one once again, they feel very real."
