Ubi Franklin, founder of Made Men Music Group (MMMG),and crooner Banky W shared stories of depression at the Joy masterclass.
Themed ‘Dealing with Depression’, the masterclass focused on the principles of human flourishing, well-being and living a life leveraging positive emotions, healthier habits and powerful self-awareness practices.
Speaking at the event, Franklin shared stories about his previous suicidal thoughts. He explained the need to avoid creating negative pictures in the mind or attaching importance to specific dates that represent bad moments, but instead use such days or moments as an impetus for success.
“There’s never a right moment to commit suicide. It’s all about the mind,” he said.
“Depression is usually created through silent pressure which will create a negative mindset, perception, or the compulsion to live our lives in order not to disappoint our parents, families or communities.”
Also at the event, Banky W shared a deeply personal exploration of how he dealt with and overcame depression.
The singer recommended a “love yourself enough to try” attitude to life.
