Once overwhelmed with negative thoughts, I am now blooming with optimism

To put it into simple terms, I was trapped. I had lost the motivation to study. I had lost the confidence that was once within. The spirit that was once burning ferociously had faded away. Depression slowly crept in to fill the empty space. I was worried, anxious, stressed out over the slightest of things. After much persuasion, I realised it was time to seek help. Time to stop feeling sad or sorry for myself.

I decided to visit SCC, hoping to find a remedy of sorts. I was initially worried and a little anxious how my first ever counselling session would go. Soon, I met my counsellor for the first time. It was amazing how one session allowed me to feel better about myself. I wasn’t so pessimistic and I actually had the enthusiasm to push forward once more.

Eventually, within just 3 sessions, I was pretty much back to my old self. I was confident again. What was once overwhelmed with negative thoughts, was now blooming with positivity and optimism. I was more open to the unpredictability of life and how to better embrace whatever life may throw back at me.

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” I for one, will definitely not lose faith on myself so easily ever again. Sometimes, we all just need to change our outlook on life. Although easier said than done, nothing can truly stop one from spiritual freedom but ourselves. I am thankful for the aid I have received from my counsellor, and how he has helped create the 180 degree change in me.

After the break up, it was even harder to accept reality and how things had turn out leading me to getting disturbed sleep and losing my focus in a lot of things.
