Faster than expected.
I watched The Secret one day in November when the love of my life, my boyfriend of 1 year, announced he was moving out. He said our relationship was beyond repair and he never wanted to talk to me again. Come to find out, his sister had been saying things about me that were not true. His sister was also having an affair with a friend of the family who he knew and trusted. This friend was also saying things about me that were not true. I was devastated. It seemed as if everyone was against me.
What was worse was that my boyfriend had started a new job and he and this family friend work in the same office. I was terrified that the two of them working together would cause them to be closer friends and would do more damage to our already non existent relationship. I just knew if I could keep my boyfriend talking to me he would see how it was all just a huge misunderstanding.
I made my Secret requests in writing. I said that I was not going to place worry on this situation, instead I was going to see a positive outcome.
I wanted his sister and her secret lover, the family friend, to be out of my boyfriends life. Now mind you I never wanted harm or ill will for them, I wanted them both to find better jobs and move out of the city.
Well, not even a week later his sister did something that devastated him so much he has cut off all contact with her. I tried to encourage him and have him talk to his sister, but he said it is beyond all repair now. The family friend was furious when a promotion was up for grabs and my boyfriend, even though at the company less time than him, was given the promotion, so the family friend began relentlessly backstabbing my boyfriend at work. So now my boyfriend says he is no longer friends with him, and will never trust him again. He said he will get along with him for work, but will not spend time with him outside work, he said he has started seeing this mans true nature and he wants no part of him. At work this man has damaged himself by backstabbing my boyfriend so much so that he has been told if he does not stop he will be fired. Recently he was in an altercation with a long time employee.
My boyfriend (exboyfriend) and I are talking on a regular basis now. There is no more anger or bitterness from him toward me, we have even gone on a couple of dates. Even though we are no longer living together I know that we will be back together soon. I know this is the man I will marry and have a family with and spend my life with.
I am currently unemployed but things are lining up for great paying jobs, more than I have ever made before. I know soon I will be employed again and be on my way to financial independence.
Since the Secret has come in my life, I know absolutely anything is possible. It all starts within me.
