Being a part of one of the best institution in India brings me pride as well as responsibility. Where, every second person you come across is a legend or has created a unique path.
Where everything not just brings an amazing opportunity to do wonders but also peer pressure and competition. Highlighted, are those names that have brought honor to name of L.S.R. In the magic of L.S.R, lots of voices go unheard, a lot of people go unnoticed but not anymore.
‘BECAUSE YOU MATTER’ an amazing campaign started by the students of this institution. It’s not always about gaining popularity or being the eye candy. Sometimes ,we go through the worse in life and end up taking decisions that can never be changed. There is no path that leads you back home.
While all of us are chained in the blues of the metro city, I came across this board with so many messages . I did try and commit suicide once in my life too. I know it was the most immature decision I took at that point of life but I wish I had come across one message of such a kind and maybe I wouldn’t have taken such a step.
Life isn’t easy and giving sympathy is an easier job because not all of us can always empathize with the pain of the person. Being a writer I believe words are magical, they have the eternal power to bring a change in this world. Everything I believed in given meaning with these messages by anonymous people.
Let the shadows of the dark not haunt you rather the warmth of the sun make you smile. This is because you matter. Suicide is a solution to end misery but it’s not the only solution. I know that moment when you feel all your life is vain, everything is ruined and there is no point of living the next moment. That’s how I felt but here I am content with life. After the failed suicide attempt it’s not that I realized the meaning of life or so on . It’s just that I decide to survive the odds. The survival wasn’t easy I had really rough patch for few months and now when I sit down talk about it after years I guess I just end up smiling and say it to myself “I was so insane”.
Life is beautiful and so are you, the wind may be harsh but the soft breeze is going to come and this will happen because you matter.
I know how it feels the moment you decide to end life and deep down you know it’s all going to fine. I still bear that scar, the stitches did hurt for sometime but then it gradually stopped. It doesn’t pain anymore but the mark remains. Every time someone asks me “What’s that scar?” I make a fake story, a different story for different people. It’s not that I am ashamed of myself but the truth is I am ashamed of falling part in that weak moment. Today, looking upon that scar I just know one thing “I matter” and so do you.
Life has its odds be the survivor, not the victim and if ever in life you’re falling apart just remember
‘The universe doesn’t define my existence rather it’s me defining its vitality’
