“For most of my life, I’ve been the prey for FAILURE. I’m a divorcee. Unluckily, my second relationship also broke. I’m a failed businessman. There are two things which every human dream to be of his favour – Relationship & Profession. Even though the journey began well, it ended up in so much agony.
I lost my father at the age of 17 (during my 12th grade). Apparently, he was the only human who never mocked me. I was bullied and taunted during my school life since I rarely talk and socialise. Meanwhile, my parents don’t allow me to go out anywhere. I had experienced phases where I had to write a letter to my parents for their approval on my field trip during my 12th grade and favourably after a couple of agreements, they allowed me to take up the train with my classmates and it is to be noted that it was my first ever trip, without my parents being aside.
Not to complain about my family for anything as they had offered me all the luxury and comfort. Since I was a very pampered kid at home, I didn’t know how to handle my father’s death. My mom was also mentally unstable. Their love story is always an epic one to me. Dad was one of the prominent businessmen in Chennai and once after his demise, the empire was slowly shattered.
Along with the business, my life actually started changing and I was left alone with no idea of how to survive.
During my college, I started cultivating a couple of inappropriate habits and this started affecting my mental health. I did my Engineering at Anna University and simultaneously during my education, I fell in love with my ex-wife. Life was better; so we decided to get married.
Due to all the pressure that was put upon me, the unfortunate situations made us break our marriage life. After a couple of years, I got the sparkle from my second love, which also did not last till the end. Meanwhile, my mom shocked me by declaring that she had Tumour in her Uterus.
I was a child who never misses out on trying any sport or game. Sports helped me recover from many mental scars and bestowed me the power to accept things as it is. My go-to sports were Tennis, Swimming and Skating, back then. Now that I joined the gym a decade back, I started working out every single day.
My gym journey is my real journey which is lasting to date.
I was trained by one of the renounced fitness gurus, Mr.Prakash (However, he is no more now). I became knowledgeable and vibrant only because of his wisdom towards working out and my body. At times, I never expect compensation for the sessions that I take up in the gym as that became my passion. Fitness can help one to come out of any grief and can make you a stronger and disciplined person. During the COVID times, I neglected the spread of disease and took care of my body wisely and efficiently. My body had taken care of me and had always supported my intentions.
I’ve experienced a lot of failures but I never give up!
There’s a phrase that we all know – ‘Jack of all, Master of none’ which many disagree saying that people need to master at least one work. However, I disagree!
I believe that one can explore all the talents that are overspread within them, rather than being an expert in only one. It depends on how well they can manage stuff!
Breakdown and sadness have driven half of my life, which helped me shape my body and consequently my mind as well. Life just keeps going, no matter what. I feel stronger today compared to yesterday – I’m just sculpting myself for a better tomorrow!”
