In my life, many times I felt lost and had no energy of moving forward it is like as I was stuck in a black hole where everything was constant.
I had gone into the depression so many times that people around me did not notice as I was functioning normally, but for me, every day was same, I gave up on life, I knew my life would never be going to get better no matter how hard I try. So instead of trying harder, I accepted my defeat.
Weeks converted into months and months converted into years. In meanwhile I graduated from high school to college, even there at college I was same, did not have any friends as I did not talk to anyone I used to go college, attend classes and went home straight.
During my free time at home, I started reading books in order to avoid human connection. I was reading “By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept”, by Paulo Coelho. This book changed everything for me. It brought a huge impact on my life. The book gave me the courage to take chances in life and helped me to find inner happiness which was not easy and How I found my inner happiness it is another story which I will tell you someday
I stopped self- doubting myself and started thinking positive making myself believe that ‘yes I can do this’. Every day in the morning after brushing my teeth I used to assign myself little assignments mostly they were about talking to people and improving my grades. Then I used to say while looking in the mirror ” I can do this.” five to six times.
As I started believing myself little things started to change and my mind started working towards it. I never realized that how these little exercises bought a positive change in my life.
