“He was born in a middle class family, a brilliant & hard working child. Childhood was amazing, lots of fun, play, friends. He dreamed of being a cricketer, the dream shared by most of the youth in India. He abandoned the dream and focused on securing his future. He liked someone but didn’t do much about it. Suddenly, many challenges started coming up at family, college/work, and also financially. Initially, he faced them courageously but he lost his patience. Slowly, the bright future that was the dream for a teenager, seemed a nightmare to a young man. He still adjusted and was ok as he understood this is the way world is. He started thinking about the past and about how bad things are, he thought to himself “why did this happen to me?”, “whose mistake is it?”, “why me?”, “my other friends are much farther in their lives”, “life would have been much different if i would have done so and so”. He thought about it whenever he had time, the feeling of sadness growing each time. He couldnt’t focus on his study/work, nor couldn’t enjoy. He started now to worry about his future, it seemed dark with no joy. Soon, he was not able to sleep properly every night, taking a toll on his mind-body. He searched online for answers, various searches made things even worse, “the facts”, “the symptoms and diseases” mentioned freaked him out. Out of helplessness he went to a skilled counsellor, while thinking what would the world say if they know i go to a counsellor for this “disease” called depression-anxiety. Fortunately, the counsellor through his skills, opened him up to a understanding that “The past is already over, the bad part of the story is over, now you can create what you want in your life. Everyone is on a ‘Hero’s Journey’, we have good times, skills, challenges, bad past, “villains”, uncertain future, a hard life in the present, we make mistakes, we have victories. What do you really want? forgot the past, be in present for creating the future you want.” Though it was difficult, he soon stopped thinking about past as it is over and unnecessary things. He became happier and was more resourceful and confident than ever, soon he learned how to create the life he wanted, he did it! Hail the Hero’s Journey!!
