My first youth conference was in 2014; I was bottled up with a lot of emotions like guilt of not sharing few things with my mother, ego, jealousy against few people, doubts of whether I will be able to complete any task properly, fear of taking responsibility.
Quiet Time was the best path through which I learnt how to reflect and accept my weakness.
Back to my routine, I took a stand for myself. I practiced quiet time and though this I built up the courage to tell my mother whatever I was to share since 2011.
It feels good giving time to my family in the evening, listening to them post dinner, sharing my thoughts. My parents now look up to me for new ideas and view points for certain situations. Bonding with my brother has been a beautiful experience. Instead of fighting over silly things, we share our problems and help each other.
I used to have a lot of ego before I attended the Youth Conference; in my opinion I have improved a lot since then. I started appreciating people the way they were and tried to see the best in them.
My journey with the LMAD family has been very beautiful, and it has made it so easy for me to be more responsible and not leave any doubt in my mind. I have started seeing every challenge as a new opportunity to improve my skills and even learn new skills. These improvements help me proceed on a journey to become the best version of myself.
