A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIEND
It was the middle of April 2008 when my best friend introduced me to The Secret. Her brother lives by it, and she tries to do so too. She could see I needed help. I was twenty-nine years old, on a high dose of antidepressants, and had been for four years. Social Services were monitoring my children, and I was feeling lost and alone.
I bought The Secret, and it immediately drew me in. Every word made sense and felt as if it were written on my heart. I read a little every night and really took it in. I started living by the rule, and the effects were immediate. I felt stronger, brighter, and more “real” than I had ever felt in my life. I stopped taking my medication and started growing stronger. I had the pills nearby in case I lost my footing, but I haven’t taken them since! I am a better person, I am a truer person. I share my feelings of gratitude, strength, and belief!
Social Services closed my case last week. They said, “I cannot believe the change in you, Mel, it is as if you were a different person.” I just smiled and said, “I am; I am finally me!”
I am now a very happy 35-year-old single mom to my boys, enjoying life, feeling strong, and sharing gratitude. I have my gratitude diary beside my bed and use it often. I have shared my copy of The Secret with several people and often remind friends who are struggling to simply look for small things to be grateful for and watch the feelings grow from there.
Sometimes I still find that I need to jog myself back onto the right path, but I am aware of that and manage to get back to happiness quickly! My Secret Shifters work, and the gratitude I feel is amazing. I have found myself in tears of gratitude over tiny things!
The Secret works! It is amazing!
