Roundtrip to Hell and Back – by Carlos Ferreira

19.11.2013

Here I am, sitting at the porch of my father’s home, embraced by this ethereal coldness and staring at the horizon in middle of nowhere at Rovaniemi in Lapland, Finland. My mind keeps searching for an acceptance that may never come. But how can this be? My life is ruined, reduced to ashes. I had everything; I was at the top of the world a year ago. How can I, the successful Andrew Anderson, be left with nothing? I’m 37 now and I don’t know how to get back on track. I gave 10 years to that company and they brushed me off like it meant nothing. I still can’t believe it…I’ve made millions in my career, helped numerous companies to prosper. I’ve worked hard to get where I was. But it seems that I lost sight of my path. I treated people like they were dispensable items. The day it all came crashing down, no one stood by my side. That struck me like a lightning. How did I become that person? That wasn’t me, that wasn’t my purpose in life. I only wanted to excel in what I could with my skills, education and ideas to help others along the way. Improve in what was possible. When I was growing up, I saw many people dealing with unemployment. I wanted to change that, create more opportunities. But I lost myself. The more I gained, the more I wanted. I lost myself in unnecessary luxuries. Now that I think of it, it doesn’t surprise me that my ex-wife Sarah left me. Yes, I was married for four years in my early twenties. But she must have seen this change in me and left before it infected her. Oh, how I miss her…It can’t be helped now.
