We often choose to forget the struggles we face during our journeys once we have reached our destination because those struggles remind us how feeble we were at that point and how we were close to breaking down or broken down already in pieces we would never imagine we had. We often only remember the triumphs we had after we overcame them. The rush of endorphin, dopamine and serotonin climb up making us feel like we are invincible superheroes. However, imagine a world where superheroes were just superheroes who won their battles and had no stories of loss or failure. Imagine a world where they were only triumphant and successful. Imagine a world without the downfalls and dilemma. What kind of world would be built if struggles were entrapped, encaged and thrown in the attic as useless piece of machinery? Would we still be left behind with same joy of success? Most probably not. And ICS experience comes along with the struggles that put you into strangest situations: situations that you never thought you would come across in life.January 31, 2018
