trust-childhood trauma/abuse | failed career

English, Hindi

Slots: Wed/Thu midday

37 | Married, have kids

Entrepreneur. I have been overweight since childhood. Realised much later in life how this unresolved trauma from my childhood affected my mental state leaving me a traumatised adult and a clingy partner. Trust issues, a constant fear of abandonment and me feeling unloved affected my marriage greatly which further worsened matters. I hit rock bottom in my life- lost my sanity, my business took a huge hit and I underwent depression for more than a year. Took therapy and now I am on the path to healing.

Student. I have been in a relationship with a girl with whom I was dead serious but I got heart broken by the same girl twice, the second chance was given just to become the best version of me for her but little did I know it wasn’t enough, and at the end I faced academic failure, bad relationship with my parents, being alone and drunk almost all days, but with time I am healing and have learnt a lot in the process.My priorities changed and I am more focused now. Healing is a long process. Willing to share my experiences to like minded people.

IITB grad. Entrepreneur. Tried starting up twice with mixed success. It was difficult to let go of something which had become a part of my identity and get myself to start building again and be optimistic again.
Another key experience for me was going through arranged marriage process. Given the importance of the decision, I was the one who led it instead of parents. There were times it became draining and felt like I’m putting my life on hold in the search.
