And Then She Had Friends.
When I was in college, my younger sister still was going to high school. What you need to know about my sister is that she is extremely beautiful but in a way, she never fit in. She had maybe one or two friends, who left her alone eventually.
One day she changed classes and that was where it all began. She came home crying and was sopping into my arms, telling me how people made fun of her, they never listened to her opinion and they just ignored her. My heart broke every time this would happen.
One night I couldn’t sleep and I went outside to look at the moon and sat there for a while. I didn’t feel quite alone, but I was. I started talking to the stars:”Oh please help my sister. She’s so alone and she doesn’t deserve this. Let her be popular and happy, let her have friends…” and then for a half an hour I was talking about how amazing she was and that she needed help. Then I went to bed.
Two weeks later she came home and told me how nice everyone was. It only got better. She fits in now and she has friends. I was confused but I was happy so didn’t think about it anymore.
A few weeks ago I discovered the existence of the book The Secret and that’s when I knew what had happened. The Universe heard me. I’m grateful. I want to say thank you for sharing this. You saved a life of a beautiful young woman.
