It is my story for motivating others in depression.
A time comes in everybody's life when you think you are useless, you haven't achieved anything. It may be the time when you are jobless, no friends in life, faced a great failure etc.
I want to share my experience with you that how some old memories brighten up my day and make me motivated.
There was a time when I was totally shattered because I was sitting jobless in my home at 22 after graduating from one of the prestigious universities(IIT).
I just thought all day about my few grades, applications being rejected, friends who are earning well etc. I research a lot for what to do or what to not, but nothing can help you when you are disheartened.
I lose all the hope from myself and start entering in depression zone, thinking that I haven't done anything great up till now and my friends and batch mates are doing so well in life.
One day I was sitting in my room and opened the box which has all my old memories in it. It has many things like- my monitor brooch of IVth class, lots of friendship bands, greeting cards, gifts, shells which I collected from the beach and much more.
I rememorized all the accomplishments of my past, the love, the respect from my family and friends, the small things in which I have contributed.
That box was my achievement up till now.
What I realized that moment was that I have gained so much in life that if today I have to leave the world, I'll have no further regrets.
The motivation which comes from the sum of tiny achievements from that box was so large that I forgot all my problems, and start working on my failures with all new energy.
After that, I never felt like a loser in my life because I thought of the times when I uplift someone.
That's my story of how I get motivated from a box full of memories.
