Hey.. Peeps.. :) Have you ever gone through depression or series of failures? If yes, then at least once thought of suicide had conquered your mind. Right? If no, then either you are lucky or you are strong enough or you had never took chances. But its okay, its never late to take chances. (I read an article in The Times Of India, and inspired to write this post.)
We humans dream, pray hard to get it fulfilled. When it doesn't happen we kinda lose hope, optimism, belief. We start opposing ourselves. Even a minute setback is enough to let us down. Reflex action weakens, we lose expressions, we get void within. No song, no novel, no movie, no psychologist, no amount of chocolate, nothing can fill that void. We feel helpless, searching options to end life. I too felt same.
I must say: Life is God's gift, ending life is disrespecting almighty. Its never an option. But for peoples who have lost hope, self-esteem, will-power this is the only option flashing in their minds. They lose capacity to judge good & bad, they lose the ability of decision making. Some turn atheist. They go apprehensive. They forget life is never same. But this kinda phase rules over mind and heart, its really hard to come out of it. But: "there is no sorrow that heaven cannot heal". If you feel low, whatever the reason is, just engage yourself in social help, it gives satisfaction, positive energy and moreover a big reason to live.
If I am asked to give examples: then I can list you hundreds of celebrities who have gone through this, they have faced years of setbacks, struggle, low self esteem and then they suffer who will take care of me syndrome. But they hold belief, hope, optimism, and they overcome their flaws, they came back again with full throttle, they rise up like a sinking ship. Remember: "Waves are always on the side of the ablest navigator". Ability comes from failures. Get up! And set your shoulder to the wheel, how long is life for you? As you have come into this world; leave some mark behind. Otherwise where is the difference between you and trees and stone, they too come into existence, decay and die. -Quoted Swami Vivekanand.
We let failure crush ourselves, we consider failure as worst thing ever. Why don't we think its just a phase to pass away? Why don't we learn from it? I too, get hurt by failures. But now I have turned a bit stoic. If you'll read my previous posts of october, september then you'll find them so negative, so pessimistic thoughts. But since I have promised myself to never regret this life: I read positive things, I look at positive side, I write positive, I replaced all sad operatic songs from my I-pod, I packed all my sad paintings, now I don't use dark colors, I use bright colors. I thank Lord for returning me my long lost hope. I owe everything to Him. I am same, living same life, but I know I am gonna make it the way I want, I will leave no stone unturned to make it.
Life is not that bad, we get human birth after 84 lakh births (according to Hindu myths). Even if its not true, then also life is precious. Its easy to live a good life, but winner is one who fights against all odds and fall and again stands up to fight and wins it. Remember: "Winner stands alone", we all feel bouts of loneliness, at times we feel like loser but that's okay. These kinda phases comes to make us strong to travel journey of life, like speed bumps on roads. What we do, we swerve it, or cross it speeding slow. Same is with life. I wish, this world to prosper a lot, may Lord give strength to live life. Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)
