A year ago in 2007 my life was that of a normal teenage girl. Except there was one catch – I had didn’t have the confidence or belief in myself that I would succeed in anything.
This happened before and after being in a relationship with my ex. I had been in a long-distance relationship with him for 9 months, and had been through a depressing time, believing I couldn’t live without him. His friends and family kept on telling him that I wasn’t the best and that he could do better, and I started to believe that. But I also didn’t believe I deserved the worst, rather the best I can be. I have my family to thank. They were there to support me when I was depressed. One month later my ex finally dumped me and there I was for a few months afterwards depressed and unsure of what to expect of myself.
I knew deep down I couldn’t stay depressed forever. So I attended a course which helped me focus on what I do want – “Not what I don’t want”. This course also reminded me of when my ex told me about a TV show called “The Secret”. I often wondered what would happen if I watched The Secret.
Before I watched The Secret I ended up in another relationship with another guy. He is actually the guy I’ve wished for most of my life. He’s a lot older than me, but age doesn’t matter in romance if you love him and he loves you.
Well, months later I was at the library and saw the DVD The Secret. I watched it and it actually answered so many questions about myself and about life. I now actually use the Secret to attract more love from my partner and more abundance from others.
I’ve learnt that in order to receive from others you need to accept yourself for who you are, and love yourself! Otherwise you just push all the love and attention away from you, because you attract it!
My chapter still continues, but I’m still learning.
