You always have a choice. By Kasturi, Assam.

p     Kasturi Sarma.

Things are not going, as you would have liked them to. All the things you planned just went – wait – you do not even know where they went! It seems like there is no way out and you are really sad and lost of all hopes and might even be thinking – ‘This is it. I am done. My life’s over.’ Then you think about the choices you made, the decisions you took, and tagging most of them in a negative sense.

Okay. Here is the thing – Some things happened and some things did not and you are feeling extremely low and feel like crying? Then do so. It is okay to let the tears flow out because it is a way of us, humans, expressing sadness. Accompany those tears with maybe a hug from the person close to you or food or shopping or with absolutely anything positive that would help you to feel less and less sad.

When I am one hundred percent sad, I hug my pillow and cry my heart out. I do end up with swollen eyes but also a calm heart. Moreover, since food is my most favourite thing, I cook a hearty meal or simply go out and gorge on burgers, ice creams, and chocolates.

Always remember – the choices you made and the decisions you took were exactly what you wanted at those moments in your life. They made you happy back then. This is why you should not regret it or be sad about it.

Nobody knows you better than yourself. So sit down, relax and take a step back, if need be, and then – THINK – CHOOSE – DECIDE.

In addition, if by any chance you think that you are done and your life might be over- well, let me tell you – it is not. However, it will be only if YOU will let it be over. Sure, it might seem like it but there is always another road which can be taken. Don’t you see one? Then carve it out and make one.

When something good happens, you rejoice. Therefore, it is only logical for you to be sad when something bad happens. Nevertheless, that’s no reason to feel incapable or inferior.

You do not delete a computer game just because you could not get across a level. Instead, try it over and over again, don’t you?

At the end of the day, it is always a matter of choice. Whether you choose to give up and fall or you choose to fight back and rise. Be wise, be strong and always be true to yourself.
