Remember when you were 4 years old and it was your first day at school, you were crying inconsolably thinking school is a sort of prison, a punishment? Look at yourself now and see you lived through it all- teachers, exams, competitions and all those rivalries etc and passed it out with flying colors and wonderful memories along with cherished friendships.
Those boards, those entrance results, those vivas, presentations, that heart break, that first interview remember all the fear, anxiety, pain it caused you? Well, you survived it all, successfully. That one person you loved so much since the day they entered your life, hurt you, betrayed you by not loving you as much as you loved them. They left you alone even after you begged them to not go away, they did! You thought you can’t live without them; that unbearable pain they left you with almost killed you, you thought you won’t be alive, it’s been couple of years, and you are very much alive, living, achieving, smiling and enjoying life better.
You have survived through toughest problems, worst phases of life. All the failures, troubles, defeats have surely affected your life, had changed you as a person but you are alive, you have came out better and stronger fighting all those battles. You are a hero. You are a star in your own way. You are a lot stronger than you think you are.
So, cheer up my dear survivor, even if you are stuck somewhere right now. This is another test and you would surely pass this too like million times you did before, you would come out of it smiling. Honey, keep holding on, this too shall pass. 🙂
