My start in chess.

Hi everyone, this time i want to confess my start in chess, i start playing this beautiful game since November 2010, because I was going through a great depression,took many antidepressant pills per day , caused by the break with my girlfriend for 3 months before. was destroyed and no self-esteem, sad and not wanting to live. So my grandmother gave me a chess board, in order to distract playing instead to spend all day crying, and that neither she or I knew is that I fall in love with chess. After few weeks began to feel better !, improve my self-esteem, and did not cry as much as before, so i can say that chess helped me move on with my life, and overcome (because you can not remember) to my ex-girlfriend made ​​me much harm. I fully recovered from the break until May of this year, thanks God !. Now my life is different now I'm better than before and stronger in every way, but without losing my humility and gentleness. 

So thats why im here, writing this blog, proud to be part of this great Chess page, and feeling happy. I hope you like my story, and sorry if i write wrong some part. I can speak english but maybe just a 65% porcent. 

 Thanks for reading my blog, and comments are

welcomehave a good day and good games !, hasta luego.

    Hi Krone, I know there are many people suffering from misfortunes in the world, but each has its own hell, now a millionaire's crying because someone stole his mercedes beanz. Meanwhile, in another place, a poor person cries because he has no money to travel by bus. What I mean is that everyone has their own suffering in their lives, and suffering in my life was to end my relationship with my girlfriend, I hope you understand.

    I disagree Krone - you can't help but cry if you are in such an emotional state. Depression is a phyciological disorder, that may not make sense to an outside observer.
    Anyway glad that chess helped you find your way, and good luck in the future!
    (And your English is quite good!)

    Crying for girlfriend breakup thats strange. Breakup is painful I know but crying that's too much. I hope you open your eyes and see outside where millions of people are dying, suffering, better set a tear for those than your gf who is heartless. Not meant to be rude of course just saying I had different family background.
