When I was a little girl my father was an alcoholic, drug addicted and an abusive man. He was in and out of prison most of my life. While growing up I always blamed myself for him not loving me. I always thought that if my own father could not love me then who would.
I was given the book The Secret to me and it changed my life. I stopped thinking about what was wrong with me and I started to love myself. I forgave him for all that he had done, and to this day I truly only send him best wishes when I think about him. Once I did that it was like a weight was lifted off of me and I could understand why he was my father.
He was my father to help me to understand what type of parent and person I was going to be. I was going to love, protect and support the people I love, to help them be the happiest they can be. I love my father for who he is and I have accepted the type of person he is.
The Secret book is with me every day and I give thanks for this book every day. Thank you to all who have put nothing but good out there.
