I remember when I was in school, how badly I wanted to be 18 and go to college. you know the times you watch Karan johar's fancy movies showing how cool is college .So I m one of those bolllywood freaks who would watch student of the year and 3 idiots and chose to do engineering in Bangalore. I was excited about all the freedom I would get, going to a metro city from Varanasi and just trying every new thing which I couldn't because parents, they stop you for every little thing. I shifted to a pg near my college and I remember how much I cried when it was time to leave home, my dad came to Bangalore to drop me to college and help me to shift. I remember how he saw my new room and surrounding and he said me, how would you live here.he was scared, he was scared because for him I was still a kid who would get anything she wanted at home without any efforts. I was only thinking about the brighter side of everything but I hardly knew, this is the life I chose and this is going to be one hell of a ride for me.
First few months were damn exciting, I and my friends would go out for late night walks, late night movie shows, everything seemed to be so charming. But sooner or later you realize that all the people you thought would be by your side till the end, leaves . Everyone's get selfish and that's when you start missing your school when you see that professors in college don't even care about what's your name and school teachers were so close to you.
And there are times when your parents call you to ask how you are and you can't speak because you don't want to tell them how badly you want to be home, eat your mother's food and talk to your dad about everything. How badly you want to be a little kid again . But guess what, everything turns out to be good, more than the college teaches you about the degree you opt for, it teaches you life. It teaches you about living alone and understanding the real-life problems, it makes you love our parents much more and want to do something for them. It sounds difficult, but it's fun. Its a lot of frustration, bad days, failures, but it teaches you how to win at life. It makes you value the comfort of staying at home around your family. It makes you value more important things in our life. It definitely taught me, I went through failures, heartbreaks, depression, but when you come out of it, it's like you have won the biggest fight. It doesn't just go for going out and living alone but any challenge that life brings in front of you and you feel like it's over, let me tell you, its the beginning of the most beautiful chapter of your life. I have been through it and I have won that challenge of my life and today i feel, I am a better person who has the power to face anything life brings in front of her, your family is always going to be beside you and remember that your strength and that's all you need.
All the best for all the crazy adventures life puts in front of you.That's what you call growing up. When you feel like you are winning at life.
