“Harmony Amidst Strife: Sahil’s Resonance of Healing with YourDOST”

3 minutes

In the vibrant state of Gujarat, Sahil, a spirited young man with dreams of conquering defense examinations, found himself entangled in the intricate threads of personal struggles. Hailing from a family of four, including an elder brother, Sahil acknowledged a minimal connection with his kin.

However, the true anchor in his life was Devang, a close friend who, in Sahil’s words, resembles more of a brother. Their bond ran deep, with Sahil entrusting Devang with the most intimate aspects of his life.

“Devang and I are more like brothers. I have shared the most personal things in my life with him. He knows me more than what I know about myself.” 

Sahil revealed, underscoring the profound nature of their friendship.

The genesis of Sahil’s journey with YourDOST unfolded during a tumultuous period marked by severe relationship issues, triggering thoughts of despair and self-harm. 

Sahil was a student from the renowned Sardar Vallabh Patel College and he pursued his B.Tech there. A concerned psychiatrist recommended therapy, and it was during this critical juncture that Sahil accessed the platform through his college’s subscription.

“I found counseling to be helpful, and it helped me heal one step at a day. I am extremely fortunate to receive the help I did.”
Sahil expressed a testament to the transformative impact of emotional support.

Ms. Priyanka Jha, a guiding light on Sahil’s journey, became his counselor for almost a year. Sahil, with his abstract thinking and nonconformist perspective, struggled to align his viewpoints with societal norms, particularly within the confines of his family and in-laws. 

The clash of belief systems created a maelstrom of sadness and frustration, leading to challenges in relationships, particularly with his prospective bride’s family.

Priyanka’s therapeutic approach brought a new perspective.

She taught me an important lesson – to accept a situation as it is and do what’s fair. If people are unwilling to accept your perspective in a situation, it’s best to move on and leave it be. We can’t change their mentality, only explain our own.”

Sahil shared this by highlighting the wisdom that became a beacon of light.

This strategy proved instrumental in reshaping Sahil’s relationships, fostering better understanding and harmony. He embraced 80-90% of the advice and techniques imparted by Priyanka, gradually turning his life around.

“I have started changing myself and work on becoming a better person. My routine and lifestyle have been altered, and my counselor was consistent in ensuring my progress through a routine worksheet.”

Sahil remarked, underscoring the positive changes he experienced.

In a heartfelt expression of gratitude, Sahil extended his thanks to Priyanka for being his unwavering support system.

Through the therapeutic journey with YourDOST, Sahil not only found solace but discovered the resilience within himself to navigate life’s complexities.
As the chords of healing resonated within him, Sahil’s story became a testament to the transformative power of emotional wellness.
