It was the eve of Sunday, my team and I was celebrating an important day for all of us. It was on this day a couple of years back that we decided to come together as a team and joined hands to bring our vision to life. We were a team of 23 with a shared vision, strongly bound by values and culture.

On the eve, things took a turn…We had to hear from one of our members, one of the strongest pillars of the team. In no time, we were immersed in a discussion, personal issues were put forth and things fell apart. He chose to part ways. Though it was the beginning of a new journey for him, he was choosing to leave behind a 4-year long endeavour.

It was unbearable for me to witness all that we had built come crashing down. The suppressed emotions of each teammate uncovered and it seemed like the end. I had invested my soul on this team, with it gone, I had not just lost a group of people I deeply cared for, but my time, my wealth, years of struggle and my vision…or so I thought. The pain extended for days together. It was the steepest dip of my life, but it taught me a great deal of things, which I would like to share with you as well.
