The myth in Indian says that there are seven doppelgangers for each of us in the world.

Have you ever found your Doppelganger? How weird will that be to find a person who almost looks just like you? I would probably freak out.

And I can say I have met my doppelganger. The one person who looks almost like me and may or may not think like me and I have met them in real.

It’s not a joke. And I quote, from “How I met your mother”.

Look we’ve all been searching for the doppelgangers, right? But eventually, over time, we all become our own doppelgangers, you know, these completely different people who just happen to look like us”,

Have you ever felt this in your real life? I have seen this happen with me and my other friends as well.

Everyone in this world goes through his. “The change” is the unknown act that happens to ourselves but, for good or bad that change has taken place within us.

Look back at yourself 5 years ago, were you the same person you are today.

Physical we changed,

Mentally we have changed,

More than changed, I would like to say “ we have tried to become that better person”

5 years ago if someone had told me that I will move to another country, meet new people or even lose a few closet friends due to ego and say I would quit the best job I had because I hates the kiss-ass environment, I would laugh and said: “Is this a joke?”

But all this happened in just 5 years, and this has made me a better person, yes, it was hard to lose people and let go of things that meant a lot to me. The harsh reality is that's how we humans have worked for years, by evolving. And this change may or may not be harsh but it will eventually happen.

The question that you have to ask yourself is that,

“Have I become the better person?”

“Have balanced my physical and mental health?”

“Do I work every day to get better, than yesterday?”

If the answer is yes. You are doing good.!

If the answer is NO.! Don’t worry, everything will take its time to come to you, have the same patience that you have today, and give your 100%. Then the day you look back, you would have been the best version of yourself.

This is not to prove someone wrong or to prove to someone that what they are missing around, do this for your better future, love yourself more.

You are all you have got for yourself.!
