It’s been couple of years since I last posted here! I just came to say thank you to everyone who read and replied to my posts when I going through a tough phase in my life. Some conversations are etched in my mind, especially one where I was recommended to see a psychiatrist (thank you – I eventually did see a psychiatrist and in a better frame of mind now)
I especially feel this is a community where we come together to give each other a listening ear without judgements and suggestions/advice which has the potential to change a person’s life for the better! And I am beyond grateful (Namaste)!
May God bless us all!
Love and light,

You are welcome. I want to express gratitude to you for posting since 2014, over seven years ago, and making it possible for me to learn some things about Your Story:
You lived (and still, I assume) in Bangalore, India. Looking up Wikipedia, it reads: “Bangalore is called the Silicon Valley of India because of the large number of information technology companies located in the city… Bangalore is a hub for biotechnology related industry in India.. including Biocon, India’s largest biotechnology company… Bangalore is known as the ‘Garden City of India’ because of its greenery, broad streets and the presence of many public parks.. Bangalore is sometimes called as the ‘Pub Capital of India’ and the ‘Rock/Metal capital of India’ because of its underground music scene… Lonely Planet (a large travel guide book publisher) ranked Bangalore third among the world’s top ten cities to visit”.
You shared back in 2014: “there’s always something I wanna to accomplish”, and you listed your accomplishments starting in 2006, when you were about 21: (1) you moved to a new city for higher studies, (2) you worked while studying, (3) you underwent training and practice and got a better job, (4) when you lost that job, you got a job with Oracle (an American multinational computer technology corporation currently headquartered in Austin, Texas, the third-largest software company by revenue, among the top IT companies in India with 10 offices in Bangalore), (5) you bought your own apartment in 2013, (6) you got a better paying job to better finance your apartment.
But you were often worried and tense: “I often find myself being worried or tensed about some or the other thing. That’s how I have always been” (2014, at about 28 years old).
You witnessed a bad relationship between your parents, 65 years old in 2014, living in a different city. You were concerned about your mother suffering because of the way your father treated her and because of living in a house with over 40 degrees Celsius ten months of the year, and no way to install air conditioning.
You got married in 2011, but it turned ugly, you divorced but kept the divorce secret because of societal judgment. Although “in India it’s a taboo to date someone without commitment, which can bring bad name/ reputation”, you had a friend-with-benefits at one time, had a lesbian girlfriend at one time (which I imagine is frowned upon in the conservative Indian society), and after two years of not having been in a relationship, you communicated with a married man you came across on a dating site, and considered a relationship with him.
If you would like to update your story in any area: work, home, your parents, your social life in the big, lively city, intimate relationships and otherwise, please do. Like you wrote in your most recent post: “this is a community where we come together to give each other a listening ear without judgments and suggestions/ advice which has the potential to change a person’s life for the better!”
