#iMendMe | Blush Originals | International Day of Women’s Health


I am a marine biologist. I gave up my job, after marriage. A lot changed after changed that. I felt disengaged with myself. I was brainwashed to believe that I can’t get anything right. My thoughts, my dress sense, my opinions, were not good enough. In a marriage, emotional abuse of so many years can break someone. It broke me. I couldn’t recognise my own reflection…at all. My husband’s unfaithfulness was the only nudge I needed to get a divorce. By the time it was too late. I was already under depression. In that phase, I began feeling stagnant. I got lectures on positivity from Facebook memes to quotes by Oprah, mom’s head massage to 4am friends. But getting out of bed was a massive task. After staying still for a long time I thought that it would be unfair to the Avani who lived a great life before she got married, to just,
lose hope. And then, I decide to just moved forward. It was difficult, but it was a little easier than just drowning neck deep in depression. I ran. I cycled. I trekked. I took my broken heart and turned to ‘Broken Compass’. A travel agency I started with my friend 5 years ago. And now, my goal is to be unstoppable. Just unstoppable. To all those people who are watching this, listening to this, All I have to say is, I found myself..at the 50th Kilometre maybe you find yourself, on the first.
