Below are the few chunks from stories of people that I found to be the shining stars:
Honestly, where I’m today is because of the darkness that I was experiencing since so long.
I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed.I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
But without the dark, we’d never see stars
Since 2009, I have been suffering of depression. I used to unscrew sharpener blades and use them to harm myself. Because of my depression I just stay locked in my room. Main things behind this depression were that every girl has left me with a broken heart and a lost soul, my dad left when I was only 5 and mostly people pretend to be ‘friends’ but they never are. At one stage of my life, I thought to suicide by trying to drown myself, hanging myself, and by taking load of pills. Depression has made me extremely different to most people. But depression has also taught me it’s okay to be yourself, as long as you believe in yourself. Even if we feel extremely low, we need to witness what life really is, instead of focusing on death. No matter how difficult that is, without the darkness, the stars can’t shine as bright as they do.
