(Oct 23, 2017)

It was New Year's Eve party.

Around the campfire, all the happy faces, except one.

And yes, that was me.

But I had no idea why I was unhappy. I was unhappy because she was not with me, or I was unhappy because she was enjoying life without me. At that moment I had no idea that this night will change my life completely.

That night I realised “Happiness comes only to those who want to adopt it.” and I decided to give myself one another chance.

Since that day, I started enjoying the small things. Started salsa classes to learn something new and eventually I got few new friends. Gradually I found a new man inside me, and over the time I came to know that my own existence is far better than someone else's.
Finally, I became the same old man who was lost somewhere between reality and repentance.
