On this fateful night, I was seated on the corner of a bed in a dark room wondering what the world has in store for me. I fought with the idea of figuring a bright future for me, in the midst of a dark past. I sobbed painfully and quietly because the voice in my head told me no one was supposed to hear my cries. Little did I know it was depression that was speaking. When I remembered how I dreamt of a cow chasing me every night and waking up every time it tried to catch up with me, I cried more. I thought God had abandoned and forgotten about my existence.

Anyway, at one point, when all the sobbing was over, I started thinking straight. What am I doing wrong? What am I not doing? Is there anything I can do to turn around my miserable, lonely life of depression for a successful life? I kept asking myself these questions. Because I wanted to change my life for good. Suddenly, I started reviewing the things I hated about my life. My God! The list was long. I hated my relationship, I hated myself for not trying out the things I loved, I hated my family, my friends and almost everything in the world. This is when it dawned on me that I was the problem. There was no way I could dislike all the things and the people around me. I mean, who does that? They say no man is an island and yet here I was.
