Helplessness: that dull, sick feeling of not being the one at the reins. When did you last feel like that –- and what did you do about it?
Almost 4 years back. Absolute helpless. No one to talk to. No one to understand me. Worse thing: it was caused due to near and dear ones. I had felt I was in dark cloud. Nothing I could see or hear. The helplessness gulped me down. I had cried and cried. Never did I cried so much in my life.
I overcame it. After that state I realized, I shouldn’t depend or rely on anyone in this life. You are on your own. My happiness did not depend on these people. I care less or none about them. I am on my own.
