Are you staying all alone in a city for your job and suddenly the country went to lockdown. You cannot go outside, no office, no more hanging out with friends, the whole day you spend your time playing ludo, pubg and watching shows on Netflix, Amazon prime, youtube, Hotstar, feel like you are locked up in a luxurious jail?
Some might feel the same loneliness ever with their families, people all around but no-one to sit and relax, share your feelings and express.
Here’s a story:
Shweta after her marriage shifted to another city with her husband. She left her family, friends, the local places, markets, colony, society and vibes from her places which made her feel homely.
She was very excited about her new life. She was ready to explore an entirely different place and diverse culture. With her open heart, she was willing to build her own family and mould herself into a new lifestyle.
Initial days, were like a fairy tale. She arranged and decorated her new flat. Now it was her home, tried enchanting recipes, enjoyed shopping household products and loved to wait for her husband.
Everything was fine but after some time she started to miss her own self. She was a girl who had lots of close friends. A working and independent girl who had a busy lifestyle. A target to achieve and a routine to follow.
From client meetings to office gossips, talking with her colleagues or hanging out with besties she started missing all.
Suddenly, she started to feel lonely and even her husband couldn’t feel the hollowness she is dealing in her life.
A city where she knows the only person. Out of so many faces, she recognises only one. Out of so many locations, she has an apartment where she can sit and look outside. The only view, she looked every day we’re a few buildings and trees from her window.
She was feeling as if she’s trapped in a cell, she wished to be the girl she was earlier. She can open the gates of her cage but don’t know where to fly.
This is life, it’s difficult to adapt and your sacrifices won’t be acknowledged.
Shweta will adapt and get accustomed to this life one day.
