A Forever Friendship.
I read The Secret a couple of years ago when I was going through a very hard time with my then relationship. I had always had a tough time with love. Whether it was with a partner or with my friends, it was always a troublesome experience. And as expected, I blamed them and how they were unappreciative of my love and affection. After I read The Secret for the first time, it did not really make much of an impact on me. I was young and didn’t realize the weight that my thoughts and feelings carry.
However, recently, I was in this wonderful relationship with only ups and no downs. I honestly never realized it, but I had manifested him as well because he is surprisingly exactly like the person I had always dreamed of being with. But unfortunately, it ended all of a sudden without any reason that could make sense to me. And so, I read the book again, then I read The Magic and then I went on to read The Power.
It was like my entire perspective about life changed. My thoughts and feelings took a 360 degree turn. While reading the books, I made a definitive list of things that I wanted. To make it clear, unfortunately, this story is not about that boy. Instead, it is about a best friend with whom I had a very topsy-turvy friendship. She never treated me well. At that point in time, we weren’t even talking or even calling each other “best friends”.
As I made the list, the first thing that I wrote was that my broken relationship heals. The second thing I wrote after that was about how I wanted her to text me with a long message expressing how sorry she was for all that she had done to me and how much distance she created between us because of her personal issues.
About two months passed by and absolutely nothing happened. I, however, had changed a lot. I became more grateful and much happier in general. And suddenly, on my birthday which was just yesterday, she texted me the most delightful and heartfelt message about how apologetic she is and how much she cares about me. She told me that I am not just a friend anymore, I am more like family to her and that has never been the case with any of her other friends. She wrote the exact message that I wanted her to write. I was surprised and ecstatic, I guess I even teared up.
Something that I really learned from The Secret is that it only really works when you let it go. And thinking back, I realize that after I wrote this, I never held on to it. I started focusing on other and very positive things.
I’m hoping that sometime soon I get to write another story about how my dream relationship and love came back to me. All it takes is letting go.
Magic Dust to all!
