Famous makeup artist and influencer Leena Bhushan has 755,000 followers on Instagram. She often takes to the gram to share photos of her work diaries. However, an Instagram Story she shared recently has netizens furious. The reason, you ask? Well, one section of the internet claims his advice to an Instagram user battling depression was tone deaf and callous.
The celebrity makeup artist was leading a ‘Time for confessions’ session where people poured out. An Instagram user has confessed that she struggles with depression and misses her. “I miss the old me who was so happy. Now I am diagnosed with major depressive disorder. Life is so unreal.
Leena Bhushan’s advice to the user was: “Wait, wait, wait…Depression is a fancy word and who diagnosed it? Train your mind not to feel it and admit it tomorrow when you wake up. Practice a little and pretend to be happy until you really feel happy. It’s in your hands and not whoever diagnosed it.
The screenshot of her Instagram story was posted on Reddit where several users wrote about how tone deaf and insensitive it was. Some users also shared their personal experiences. “Man, this affects me too. I always refrain from sharing such things with my family and siblings too because I know it will become a mockery for me. It’s ironic when you expect your elders to understand, but instead they will make you feel more depressed,” one user wrote.
