Fight your own battle

The other day, I was also talking to a friend of mine who didn't clear 2 exams out of the 10 he gave. He was feeling a bit low. I told him that he wasn't so sad last semester when he didn't clear 4 papers, and he said that " till when will this go on happening...". I said look at me, I am repeating the whole year because i couldn't clear my previous exams! And he blurted out, "yours is a different story..." I stopped myself from saying anything further, but I wish I had. I wanted to tell him that why do you think I'm any different in my feelings. Even I wanted to clear my exams. I wanted to move on to the next year. I'm battling with this illness and it doesn't mean that I don't have any aspirations like he has. I can't just accept as easily that I will be left behind with failures, that I cannot carry on like they can. How does he expect me to feel different with no options in front of me. I am one of them, no matter how erroneous his thinking...Finally, I told him that "everyone has to fight their own battles..."

Dear Puzli,

I have come across your blog recently and i must say that your views, your attitude towards life despite suffering this sad illness are really encouraging. Iam myself battling mental health problems (though haven't been officially declared a schiz) and i do in a way feel inspired by you.

Well I really wish you well for future and man I myself have done engineering and I know what exams are to us. At times I doubt tht whether einstein himself would have been able to clear these exams!!!!.

Well anyway really best of luck for your future life and hope u do well in your exams.KEEP IT UP MAN!!!!
