Because I’m Happy

Good Morning.

Today, whilst checking out Housing.com and their new look, I happened to come around few pictures which signifies the importance of being #together in this journey of life.

I then remembered a situation which took place last year. That situation took almost 8 months and help from few important people in my life to come out from. So I thought, why not share it with you guys. Here’s a story close to my heart which I now put forth you.

May 2014 – Completed MBA in Finance.

June 2014 – Job search begins.

January 2015 – The search still continues.

That’s my story.

I, Lancelot Quadras after completing my degree started losing confidence in myself at a rapid pace. Interview after interview, facing rejection became part of my reality. There were times I could not sleep. There were times I introspected on what I’ve been missing out on. There were times I questioned my capabilities. 

8 months after my college life was over I still had no job. At that time i could be compared to a maze, where there is no way out. Only twists and turns leading to different p-laces, but not to the end. That feeling of doing nothing and having nothing to do… many can relate to it. The question then arises; how you deal with it? What happens when you can’t find the end of the tunnel; when everything looks bleak; when everything around you only seems to pull you down; your morale is at an all time low. I described it a bit dramatically. But yeah, the feeling was upsetting to heights I don’t want to measure anymore in this lifetime.

I am lucky to have few people whom I care about. I’m even luckier when I tell you that these few people have been there for me in my happy moments, times when I need some advice, times when I just want to be heard and finally… times when I just wanted to hear and accept the truth.

When I think about how I made it so far without doing something stupid or slipping into the pool of sadness, I just look at the almighty and thank him for keeping so many angels beside me. The angels are in the form of my family and a few friends.

I have My Parents to thank for their understanding. It’s not easy to look at your son struggle for a job when you’ve given your 100%. There were moments when I could see a bit of frustration in their eyes. Sometimes they must have seen the sadness on my face. But they’ve made sure to keep me happy no matter what.

I have a few Set of Friends to thank for providing a never ending funda on life, success and failure talks, cracking jokes and just about bringing a smile on my face when all I wanted was nothing more than solitude. I was wrong. I needed them and they came to me, made me laugh, gave me hope and the strength I needed to come out of this situation.

The result of their belief in me did pay off. I got a job on 12th February, and that was one of the best days of my life. Everyone’s happy. My family and friends said they knew I’d make it one day and yes I did make it.

Alone everything looks kind of impossible but #together we can scale new heights. I couldn’t have managed my confidence, be positive, if it were not for my parents and friends. I’m glad I have them in my life.

It’s truly said that sometimes even an “I’m here for you” can bring in hope and strength in us which can help us to #lookup and rise up to the occasion.  So have there been occasions when you felt everything was not going your way but there were some important people who were there for you, believed in you and with their help got you out safely? If yes, then please share it with me. Let the world know the power of being together.
