Coping Up And Grateful
First of all, I just want to thank Ms. Rhonda Byrne because her book has helped me a lot in coping up and being able to redeem myself.
I was bullied in school, almost everyday. People would make fun of me, especially about my physical appearance. My weight, my nose, I think almost every bit of me. I was even cyberbullied, which was even worse. Everyday I would go to school, without enough confidence to face the people there. Suicidal thoughts even took it’s toll on me. I struggled for so long. Talking about this to other people freaks me out. It scared me, a lot.
What made things get even worse was that I lost friends.
All of them.
I tried to patch things up but they didn’t even bother to notice. That’s when I thought, it was over. Everything is over for me. I have nowhere else to go. Everyday for me is a bad day.
March, this year, I saw The Secret book at my cousin’s house. I borrowed it from her, because I was curious. I started reading it, and to me, I am like “Wow! I still have chance. I still can stand up from everything I am going through.”
The things I learned from reading the book is that, for me to acquire love, I must start it from myself. I have to love myself. I have to love others. I have to give, so I can receive more.
At first, I thought of myself as the fat girl with a big nose, the girl who is always bullied. But I started to change my thinking. I started to believe in myself, I started to believe that I am unique, I am beautiful, that I will be able to gain friends again.
At first, thoughts of mine would occupy me like “No, that’s not what people see. They see me as the ugly one, the nobody in school.” But I shrugged it off. I thought of everything in a more positive way. And because of that, I have learned how to love myself more. And learned how to appreciate myself, and my environment.
I learned to love others again, especially my family. I also learned how to be grateful. To be grateful for everything. Even if my day didn’t turn out that well, I was still thankful. I just kept on thinking, that there are better things in store for me tomorrow.
The month of May came, and I was surprised because some of my friends in High School started texting me and sending me love and saying they miss me so much after 3 years of not seeing me. I was so happy. I felt that I am not alone anymore. I felt loved by them and my family. I felt that I am one of the happiest people living here on earth.
Right now, I am really happy. Even though I lost some friends from college, I gained more. I gained more love, respect, and appreciation.
The Law of Attraction really works! It still surprises me even up until now. And I am still continuing to live by it’s words. Thank you The Secret team!
