Hello Raheel,

That’s quite a profound thought you’ve shared, I too once felt that nobody could understand my mental state and got tired of listening to, “It’ll get better” or “It will pass…it’s just temporary”.
What I can say, in my personal experience, is that we’re given a circumstance and the choice is up to us; what we make of it. You can either let the condition define you or you make the best of it and accept it as such, grow through it.
Muhammad Ali was once asked how many sit-ups he does in one day, he answered “I don’t start counting until it starts hurting”; sounds like a great line, but also think of the depth of what that means. Only through pain will one grow, if we set a clock on it; we’ll give up when we reach that number, limit, or goal.
Not many people, in this day age, can truly say “I’m comfortable with being alone in a room by myself”; we’re flooded with visual triggers and aphrodisiacs. You’re in a situation, but it doesn’t mean it has to be all bad; you can learn to find what makes you tick and hone in on that skill, it’s why I started writing. If not for that, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I have so far.
I wish you all the best, and may you find peace and comfort.
Kind Regards,
Nabeel.
