It is often said: “Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations”. Perhaps the phrase can beautifully sum up the episodes of my life. Coming from a decent background, I never had to struggle with anything. I was never put to challenges. Everything was available to me in a platter. I had everything, but boldness – the boldness required to face the unexpected twists.
We all know, the only thing remaining constant in life is ‘change’. It was 2015, I left my family to pursue my career ahead and then there started my share of struggles – something I was not prepared for. I entered this new city which was 2400 km from my home. This might seem normal. But it was difficult for me at that time. A person who never stepped out of the house to buy groceries was running around roads looking for a rented accommodation in a city where there was no common tongue which the natives could understand. This time I did not had my family to provide me the cushion which I had always been used to. Many a times, I was lied , cheated and betrayed. Living alone, isolated, no one to talk about what was going on in my mind. But it was soon that I realized that it wasn’t a big deal. It was me who was letting all of this happen to me. I took charge and stopped assuming myself to be a victim. I was no longer gullible but was confident individual who was ready to face any challenge in life. I realized the importance of being independent and my experiences gave me the required push to be a career oriented individual rather than someone who always had someone to fall back to.
