Once I was a person filled with worldly negatives and one who mostly lived in my past regretting everything in my life. It was such a horrible period. I confess that I made myself and my loved ones so miserable on those days. Now I feel proud to say I am a willful survivor of depression, anxiety and suicide. Thanks To Isha and Sadhguru.
