It is with tears, that are endlessly running down my face, and a broken heart that I write this:
I am not able to become a dancer and I will have to quit dancing.
My L5 bone on the left side in the spine is totally broken. The right side has a bad stress reaction and will break if I push it harder. This is a really bad back injury which needs time off. And bones do not heal in two days. Taking time off will heal the stress reaction but never grow the bones back to where they were.
I cannot be a dancer with this type of injury. Dancing will kill my body and it is not worth it in the long term. This is a serious and dangerous injury which you cannot dance with.
It does not only break my heart, to face the truth and realise the fact that I cannot become a dancer, but it breaks me. My soul and my body. I am more than sad. Not only to quit my passion and what I love to do the most, but it breaks me when I realise I will have to leave my amazing life here in Zurich. I have gotten the most wonderful friends here, in the entire world. I love them endlessly and I already miss them extremely much. ❤️
I am flying back to India and to my family in the beginning of next week.
