I slipped into depression post break up: Sonal Vengurlekar
- Mumbai ┼ eredio
Break-ups are never easy. Apart from nursing a broken heart, Sonal Vengurlekar, who plays the lead in Saam Daam Dand Bhed, had to battle with depression after her relationship of over three years ended a few months ago. The TV actress was dating her Shastri Sistersco-actor Sumit Bhardwaj.
Talking about the tough times, she says, “Over the years, I started feeling that there was no affection or value for the relationship from his side. Though I realised that the relationship wouldn’t last, I tried my best to save it, but in vain. I slipped into depression post break-up and was heartbroken to learn that he moved on quickly and started dating someone else.
When in love, your entire revolves around that one person. So, it was like the world had ended for me. I stopped mingling with my friends and even family. However, I am extremely focussed about work and did not let it get affected. My mother realised that I was in a state of depression and helped me come out of it. It took time, but I am glad that I am out of it now.”
Sonal says that the relationship failure has transformed her into a better, more confident person. “I have become more practical. The experience changed my perception towards life and I am happier now,” she says, adding, “I would like to tell everyone that love is beautiful, but it’s not the end of the world.
Trust your near and dear ones, they are the ones who can help you when you think your world has come to an end.”
