Before I knew of “The Secret”
I was recently separated from a very verbally, emotionally and mentally abusive marriage. I was a single mom of two wonderful little boys with different levels of disabilities and very scared. I was scared to face my problems alone but I was even more afraid to consider letting a man in my life.
One night I took out a piece of paper and wrote all of the qualities in a man that I would have to have to consider letting him in my life. My number one quality was “to feel safe”. When I read the list over again, I was sure it would take a long time to find this man because there was no man that I had ever met that had all of the qualities.
One day, while I was online, I decided to search for someone to talk to from the same area that I lived in. It was great to meet people from all over the world but I really wanted to talk to someone that might know where my small town was on the map and had maybe even been here before. I was not looking for a boyfriend or a relationship of that kind, I just wanted to find a new friend. I found this man who’s online profile was very interesting to me. I wrote him. We talked that night online for a while. We shared emails and IM’s for a month or so. Then we decided to talk on the phone. The first time I heard his voice I felt like I had known him for years. We talked every day for a month and our third phone conversation was 6 hours long. We have been together for 3 years now and he truly is the love of my life. I always wanted a man to love that would make me feel loved and I got him.
I have not watched “The Secret” yet but have only read the stories on this page. I am going to watch and order the DVD just as soon as I can get the money.
