HOPE IS THE NEW BEGINNING

I stand here by myself strong, social, bold, and helpful to others. But a few years ago I was not at all like this as I am today. I have gone through many struggles and problems. I had a reserved nature, I was shy, timid, afraid of people as they haunted me, I didn’t talk to people because when you talk to someone, you have to fulfill their expectations and I was not at all interested in obeying the rules of expectations. Then I reached class 11th and joined hostel for a year or two. There I saw a girl who was much strong, helpful, social, bold, jolly and happy in her life. I always had a thought that how her life is so simple and easy and possibly enjoyable? She became my admiration but I didn’t have the courage to go and ask about her life but secretly craved to live a life like hers. But one day I guess God heard my prayers and she came to me by herself and talked to me about my issues. But as always I was not ready to share my experiences about my life struggles so I answered back rudely and asked her to leave, though regretted it as soon as the words left my mouth but she was the one with a big heart and a great deal of courage, came again and asked me to join her. And as I said ‘the one with big heart’ made me feel comfortable with her and taught me the right way to live life.

And as I said ‘the one with big heart’ made me feel comfortable with her and taught me the right way to live life. Also, she held my hand and pulled me out of my sorrows and of my life to her side, the side which I admired since the very beginning. She made me strong to face my problems by myself without any hesitation. She explained to me that everyone in this world has equal rights and freedom. Nothing is impossible in this cruel world if someone makes up their mind. Nowadays every person is free to do whatever they want to and live their life accordingly. And then she told me that gender is not an issue, everyone is judged by their talent, knowledge, and potential and also gave me a strong feeling that I can share my issues with her as she would not reveal my part of life or make fun of me.

Then I finally explained her about my house, my parents, my family issues and my issues. I told her that I am an elder sister of a younger brother but my parents wanted their first child to be a boy. I had to do almost all my household work. My parents always told me one thing that I am a girl which is why I don’t have the permission to socialize much or to have much fun or when my brother did something wrong, I had to suffer as I failed in handling him. He had the right to say anything to me but I couldn’t even raise my voice against him. I always had a feeling that girls are only for compromising and facing struggles. But she changed my mind and made me strong and became the source of light in my life.
I am glad that she happened to me and I am proud of what I am today.

Self-confidence is one thing one must possess. It is like having clothes on cause we cannot possibly go out without it and so, same is with self-confidence. Life is mysterious and sometimes brings hurdles but we must not get disappointed or discouraged by them as they are there to make us more strong and better so that we may achieve our goals easily. Inspiration is another quality to be grabbed as it is the major part that leads us to the right path and guides us to know more and continuously sharpens to shine better. No matter how hard some situations may feel, self-confidence and inspiration will always lift us up and will lead us to success.
