Finding yourself again: How to come alive

In reality, finding yourself means returning to yourself. Remember who you were before this world overtook you. Sometimes to become a father-mother, sometimes a husband-wife, sometimes to become a good worker, we start losing ourselves. This does not happen as a result of any one process. The world is a very busy hub. Whoever needs something, takes that from us. We live with a never-ending to-do list.

Our condition becomes like a scooter lying in the junkyard of a garage. Whoever needs a part takes it out. One day, what we really were, is lost.

Finding yourself again

It was the second last month of the year 2015. I met a girl. On seeing her, I felt that she was exactly like me. I could see my soulmate in her. After being friends for a few months, we fell in love with each other. Although she was older than me, I had no idea about it. She was also a big dreamer like me. In those days, I was just like a child who did not know how to be cunning.

After meeting her, I felt as if I had found everything. I was lost in her sweet talks. But all this was not for life. By the time 2020 came, everything had changed. The masks had changed. Our relationship had taken a turn in the wrong direction. The fights between us had increased a lot. As much as we agreed with each other in the beginning, now we disagree to the same extent.

Images from the past were floating in my eyes. Due to being emotional, sad and worried for a long time, my mental and physical health had deteriorated a lot. My career was almost over. Medicines and motivation were not having any effect.

My jijivisha (will to live) was repeatedly inspiring me to find yourself and alive again. So first of all I assessed my whole situation and started trying to find myself.

Spending time with yourself is also a way to finding yourself again

As we all know that man is a social animal. If we stay away from the rest of the world for a few days, will our name be removed from the population register? not. I kept away from most of the people because most of my relatives and friends were demotivators.

I took leave from all work. Spent time with myself. I studied deeply my weaknesses, goodness, badness, talent etc. After evaluating all my circumstances, I changed my routine and started spending most of my time in gardening. I remember, once while I was walking in the morning, I found an injured pigeon. I brought it home and took good care of it. It recovered in a few days. It became very friendly with me. I realized that birds can also be good friends.

During those days when I spent time with myself, I made two new friends who encouraged me. They did not demotivate me like others.

Playing with children

Our life begins as a child. To find yourself again, you must find the hidden child inside you. In my case, there were many children in my colony. They all used to go to play in the park in the evening. I also used to go to the park to play with the children. By doing this, I awakened the child inside me. I had so much fun riding a bicycle with the children that I never had while riding a car. It was a very enjoyable experience.

Pursue your hobbies

Dear friend, age does not matter, we should respect the feelings of our soul. Try to remember what hobbies you had when you were in school. Now that you have got a chance, try to fulfill those hobbies which were left incomplete for some reason.

In my childhood, I was very fond of buying toys. Toy cars were my favourite. Toy cars that I could close in my fist. One day I was travelling to a nearby city. I saw a shop. A lot of toys were being sold there. I immediately went to that shop. All the toys of my choice were available there. I bought all the toys of my choice which was like a dream come true for me.

Try to learn something new

We may know a lot of things, but there are still many things we don’t know. When I was finding myself, I learned gardening. I started studying mathematics again, which was my favourite subject in school days. Whatever the age, we are students throughout our lives.
