Niti Taylor, who was last seen as Mannat Khurana in Ishqbaaaz (Star Plus), is in a state of shock as she got to know about the suicide of one of her young fans.
The incident prompted Niti Taylor to write an elaborate post to her followers, encouraging them to open up and speak to someone about their personal issues.
Now, this what Niti wrote on her Instagram post:
"I woke up with a heavy heart this morning for someone I don't know in person but was my fan. I was shocked to hear of an amazing young girl who ended her own life. There are a lot of sad people around us and we can't turn away. My heart dropped this morning after reading that this very young girl just hung herself. But being sad without action helps no one. I am a believer in action.
I know this world isn't easy, we all go through something, everyone's struggle is different. Everyone can't understand us. You don't want to die, you just want the pain to go away. But please understand - No, you aren't alone. Yes, we all feel this way sometimes. No, you won't always feel like this. Yes, the world is a better place with you in it.
If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or whispers a word of encouragement, or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen.
You're alive for a reason so don't ever give up. Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle. Place your hand over your heart, can you feel it? That is called purpose. Because if you kill yourself, you're also going to kill the people who love you.
I am taking this platform to tell my loved ones, that if you're going through something, and you're not okay, you don't feel alright - I am there for you. Just a call or DM away. I will try my level best to comfort you. But sometimes just talking to someone, makes it much lighter."
I must say, this girl has her heart in the right place.
