ہمدردی/hamdardee is Urdu for compassion–a compound word that can be deconstructed into “sharing pain”.

In this blog, I will navigate and intervene into my own anxiety and depression through engagement and reflection. Ultimately, I would like to challenge larger systemic forces that shape the anxious, depressed, or otherwise vulnerable subject. I hope to make these interventions to politicize categorizations that are more commonly treated as diseases and illnesses, and instead use them to more critically examine the world and power around us. For now, I will begin with unpacking my own experiences and my interactions with art and relationships throughout my life.
