Why Read ‘I Decided Not To Cry’

I Decided Not to Cry

I finally had the courage to start writing my autobiography, a very big step from my side.

Being a life coach isn’t easy, and writing an autobiography is even more difficult.

It was a long journey, for me, to come to where I am today in my life.

I am very sure that the Ritu Singal people knew at the start of their lives, when they first met me, that it is very different from the Ritu Singal of today.

When I started living my life, I was a small doe with big eyes and even bigger than life ambitions.

Now, as I grow older and more mature, I have changed. Those doe eyes are not as easy to recognise in me as they once were.

At my core, I have changed many times as I assumed different roles. Daughter, wife, mother, entrepreneur.

But now the core is the same as before, a state I firmly believe is the best state to be in- innocent yet wise, curious yet experienced.

As to whether you should read my book or not, I will leave it up to you to decide, but in order to make your decision easier, I will leave a brief summary of my autobiography with you.

My story starts in the picturesque hills of Shimla, where I was born the third child of my parents.

I had a doting childhood, filled with love from my parents as well as my siblings.

I had my fair share of difficulties in childhood as well, of course, as not anyone can grow cuddling the golden spoon.

My major life chapter, however, starts when I started going to college.

I aspired to be an IAS having wanted to clear the civil services exam, and I was even the topper at my law college, which helped me prepare for a glorious future ahead. 

Little did I know, however, that my life will take a drastic turn, having been approached by a boy named Vikas, who fell for me, and later on, made me fall for him too.

After marriage, however, the attitude of my husband began changing, and the same husband, who had promised me a peaceful life and encouraged me to practice as a teacher, changed.

He strictly opposed my decision to work outside home, and I was shattered. I gave up on my career dreams, which I had been pursuing so ardently earlier.

After the birth of our daughters, however, it made my life more beautiful.

It soon changed with the entrance of a girl named Rosy, who won over the heart of my husband and started an affair with him that changed my destiny forever, and led to my marriage being not so destroyed from outside, but totally in shambles inside.

This affair went on throughout his life, almost. My parents in law refused to believe that he was being unfair to me, which totally discouraged me.

My formerly simple husband took loans and became more ambitious, began getting distracted from work and neglected it to the point that it reached judicial court.

It turned out, however, that he had been taken advantage of. The night he found out the truth was the same night we found him dead, having committed suicide.

After that, although my husband had died, my troubles hadn’t gone away with his death, they had only been amplified.

I was up to the brim with loans and court cases on my construction company, which I worked hard to clear and emerge successful as I am today.

Today, I am a life coach, helping people like you make the most out of your life, no matter how little you may have.

In the end, all I would like to say is, I have thoroughly enjoyed living my life to the fullest, even though it was filled with a lot of struggles in between. From being a daughter, wife, mother, widow and entrepreneur, life has not been fair.

But I am proud of the way I presented myself in life, and am proud of the certified life coach that I am today.

I don’t know what you would have done in my place had you lived my life, but I know one thing, and it is that my decision not to cry was the best thing I could have ever done for me, my family and children, and my life.
