  4. Prashant Agarwal:

    Many a times in life you may encounter some situations and problems that may lead to make you feel depressed, isolated, frightened or anxious. These are merely some emotions that takes control over your mind and starts feeding you with negative thoughts where you may end up finding yourself completely manipulated by these feelings, which would eventually affect your life. But it's only you who can make yourself happy and sometimes you don't even know what you are capable of, unless you fight and face that particular situation on your own. Thus, embrace your journey, understand your emotions and build a courage to face it. One thing that you need to realize is that it's never an easy journey, and everything that you do may not lead to make you feel happy, pleasant or satisfied. The wisest investment you can do for yourself is to purge yourself away from all those feelings and thoughts which is pulling you back from your goal.
