It’s always the decision of an individual to choose certain things. Do you like to be comfortable or want to get out of that comfort zone & do different things which are meaningful? It is always the decision of the individual. You are accountable for the decisions you make.
Yes, here I am in Bengaluru and was accountable for shifting from living as paying guests (in PGs) to renting out a home. There is a lot that you need before you can shift to a home. One of the main things is related to cooking. You are responsible to cook and make certain things yourself. In PGs, you just pay a certain amount of money & the owner will take care of the rest.
Once I got the rental agreement in my hand, I shifted to my new home immediately the next day. I had a few essentials like cooking gas, a stove, water cans & few required cooking utensils. Which was just enough to survive. All these days, I kept these items at one of my aunt’s homes which is nearly 35km away from my new rented flat. I also kept an immense number of books that I had read during all these years. (Most of my boxes were filled with books).
Bringing all these items from my aunt’s home to my place was a nightmare. I was all alone from the starting point. I had no idea, how will I be able to carry all my items to my place. I barely received any help. Even though one of my closest friends did ask, I denied her as it was too heavy for her to carry. But, people who could really help me, just didn’t.
When no one offers any help & you must do whatever you want to do without any help, that’s what makes one understand many things. Some events teach you a lot.
When I was searching for a vehicle that could carry all my items from my aunt’s home to my space, I was stuck. Through one of my uncles, I got a reference for a mobile app called ‘Porter’ where you could book a carrier auto or any such transportation vehicle & within minutes they will connect you to the nearby available transportation of your choice. That was very convenient. It saved a lot of my time. I booked an auto, and I shifted all my items, into it. I came along with that auto, by sitting inside it with the driver till my home. When I reached my home sitting in the same position for 35km caused a lot of trouble. I could not change my sitting position in auto, because there wasn’t any available space. It was really hard for me. But, I got no choice, as you are accountable for the decisions you make.
But, the security of our residency helped me a lot, to shift the boxes. He put all the heavy boxes into the lift. He also carried a few of them. I am really grateful to him.
The house relocation taught me many things, and gave me a great lesson & understanding.
