An Urdu sher goes something like ‘Khud hi ko kar buland itna, ki har taqdeer se pehle Khuda bande se pooche ke bata teri raza kya hai’
It is one of the most surreal feeling in a person’s life. When a person feels confident to reach the stars, nothing seems impossible. Examples galore where confidence has resulted in a rags to riches tales. Those are the spirited ones who achieve success without any support or a safety net to fall back on. However, lack of confidence causes a person to shudder at the thought of even simple tasks. One can find many such instances at home, in office, at school or the workplace. Many patients avail of flower therapy to increase confidence and proves beneficial.
Satish was shy even as a child and never dared even speak. He disliked venturing out of home and even to speak to strangers. Whenever there were guests at home and he’d be called out to be introduced, he’d either escape from the back door or hide in the bathroom. He had no friends in school or college, leave alone having girl friends. He broke into sweat at the thought of speaking to girls. All this was as a result of the environment in his house. His mother had raised him in a very protective way. His father tried to boost his confidence but his mother always backed him by saying that he’s the only child and how could he manage on his own. This made him a recluse and shy person. He somehow bagged a job in a private firm. Here too, he earned the scorn of his bosses owing to his shy nature. Not being a go-getter, he obviously barely earned. The real problem arose when it was time to find a match. When the prospective girl handed him a cup of tea, his hands would tremble. The girl herself rejected him. It was then that he realized that he needs medical help to gain his confidence. He benefited from flower therapy.
Confidence is required to take your own decisions, to develop a personality and when it is lost due to some reasons, flower therapy helps. Losing confidence to drive after an accident, as a result of continuous demoralizing at the workplace or at the hands of the in-laws, as a result of continuous taunts from relatives or owing to fear has remedy in flower therapy and homoeopathy. The two when combined, prove complementary to each other in treating a person. At times, unknown stress can also result in lack of confidence. Here was a person who worked as an assistant manager in a bank. When the manager was scheduled to be out of station for some training, the work charge can on him. He began suffering from diarrhoea that day itself. He could not even attend work that day. This kind of emotional diarrhoea happens out of stress. Flower therapy is a boon for such patients. Patients with low levels of confidence often suffer from anaemia, frequent bouts of cold, emotional diarrhoea ( Irritable bowel syndrome – IBS), back trouble or even insomnia.
