I am posting this story as a part of the #YouCanDoIt Contest.
[The quote in the title is by Lyndon B. Johnson]
I always like to look at the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.
I never believed that there is any such thing as negative and positive vibes until I meet one person. So this person happened to be my customer when I was working in a private bank. I don’t know what attracted me to this guy that I had fallen for him and unknowingly I was digging a hole into my bright life. I was doing great in my job and my parents were proud of me. Till I met him.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. But I went away with the shadow and was in complete darkness. This guy was a part of the love jihad and had the worst plan for me. I even went to the extent of asking my family to cancel my marriage.
Yes, I was engaged but was still under such a deep influence of that guy that I didn’t realize I was hurting my present husband.
Guys trust me, I am not this kind of a person. I was clear that I will never go against my family and will never do anything that can hurt them. In fact, I used to motivate my friends and others to never fall into any serious relationships that might hurt or break them.
It was my tender age that made me commit such a mistake that I still regret and I am guilty of.
As it is said, God cannot be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
My mum is my angel and my biggest inspiration. Her prayers and blind faith in God took me out of the disaster that would have destroyed my life and others life forever.
Her support and motivation made me move on and look for a bright and positive life. She is my idol and the one person who always appreciates me for any little thing I do. I try to follow her footsteps so that I can be a good mother to my daughter Jeevika, to whom I could pass on my mum’s teachings and values.
I owe a lot to her and one day will definitely open my heart to her and to everyone else that she is my biggest inspiration and support system. I want to make her proud and want to return the favour.
I cannot undo my past errors but will make a better future.
