Everything Happens For A Reason

Everything Happens For A Reason

It was just a usual day. But today I came a little early in the evening. I was sitting onto a swing in my balcony. I remember I was in std 8th, after the recess time in school it was the day of elections to be made for appointing a new cabinet for the next academic session of the school. I was happy as I was confident that I will become one of the school captains as I was an all-rounder; good at academics, in arts, in cultural as well as extra-curricular activities, also a bit in sports. The voting was to be done by the class, by choosing one name from the given list. The voting phase began. I thought that my class would support me, my friends would. But that as the day I realized not everyone in your life is your friend. They already decided beforehand to whom will they give a vote. During the voting time, they saw each other and then began to give a weird kind of smile to me. 


I felt a bit awkward, I came home and told everything to my mother. She calmed me down and told me to wait until the results were declared. After a couple of 2-3 days, the results were announced. I was not surprised to see me not being elected as a cabinet leader, because I knew this would happen. After that purposely the class fellows started making fun of me, they passed comments. I felt really sad. I didn’t know why this happened? Why did they have any problem or jealousy from me? This is the question I still ask my self in my college days. The day results were declared I was sad, mom knew about this. She came near me, sat with me and made me understand, I can the fact of life. She told me this was just a start. Not even one percent of your journey. People tend to do something different in their life, do face such situations. She told me no one will support you in the struggling phase, but once, you are done, they will come to congratulate you, I added, that too with jealousy. She laughed and yes, might be.


I realized, yes the future path is to going to be tough. The next two years of school somehow passed. Many unfair things happened in those years, but I chose to remain silent, as I knew there is no use spoiling your worth in front of such types of people. College life was about to start. I was excited about it. I started it with new hopes and a new beginning. But it was all vain. In college too, I made new friends, everything went well, we would have fun, share some jokes and gossips. They always excluded me while going anywhere, anyways I didn’t pay much attention to it. I was tired of all this. I just decided to focus on my goals and work on myself. This would help me in life ahead and not the hangout or tome spent with “so-called friends”. 


I started doing so. Along with my career, I started working on my passion too. Yes, the hard work and that solitude period I your life plays a great path in the way of success. I started getting A little recognition as a writer. Well, I never kept any contact with my school mates. Suddenly one evening, while I was out in the market someone amongst them met me. He told me you were going great ahead, (yes I knew I was doing something good, is what I wanted to answer; but) I smiled and said thank you. Today is the day where I realized, standing with your own self is the most important thing anyone can do in their life. I know today I don’t have many friends or many supporters, but yes a very few, but genuine ones. That is what is more important in life. 


There was a time when I used to get upset that others have so many friends and I don’t, but time made me realize quality matters and not the quantity. Today when anyone asks me how can you do so many things I don’t say anything, just smile. Small achievements act as a great source of motivation and a self-confidence builder. I realized at that point in time that yes, each and everything in life happens for a reason. If that wouldn’t have happened in school days, I wouldn’t be this strong today, that I felt even okay if I was alone, because I have learned to enjoy my own company too! What matters the most is how much you are there with yourself and fo yourself in life!
