Dealing with depression was the hardest part of my life, I was into depression for almost 6 months and still imagining that situation gives me goosebumps but somehow, I recovered from that part of my life and it took me 2 months almost to be normal again.
It all started when I shifted to Mumbai in the last year to start working and support my family financially. I belong to a small town near Mumbai and due to fewer job opportunities in my town, I decided to shift in Mumbai and work here to earn money and support my family. But from the start, I have been facing difficulties surviving here.
I used to live in my home in my hometown but here I had to rent an apartment to live which was fine, I thought it can be managed but I never thought that the expenses will be so high. Somehow, I rented a small apartment and started looking for a job and within a few days, I got a job and that offer letter filled me with joy and happiness.
I started working in that company and my coworkers made fun of me just because I had a little different way of talking to someone, things settled after some time and I managed to change my way of talking to everyone. Now comes the hard part after some time and when the work pressure kicks in and you can do nothing about it.
I place was almost 1 to 1.5 hours away from my workplace and I had to travel every day by buses and trains which was very tiring and on top of that I had to do some extra hours in the office for which was not even paid for. This is the worst thing anyone will ever see in his time when you are working more than 100%, sacrificing your social and personal life but still you are not recognized or paid for the hard work.
After working like this for some time my mind was always stressed and I was not able to cook food for myself whenever I reach my place after working, watching other living with their loved ones, family and enjoying the social and personal life made me realize how alone and how unhappy my life is going. I was not able to sleep properly, eat or even work with my focus in the office and even if someone asked me for something, I always felt like slapping them on their faces. I became very irritated and frustrated by my life that I decided to leave all these things and go back to my family.
But after realizing that, it will affect me and my family financially, I decided to stay and treat myself a little better. I searched for some Psychologist In Mumbai, took some online therapy sessions, started going to a fitness center and did yoga every morning to calm my senses. I even took some days off from my work and gave rest to my body for some time, after a long time I was able to take a proper nap and did things that I enjoyed.
After some time I felt a little better and spending time on making things right gave me confidence and positive energy to start my life once again.
