Found Myself Again.
Till the time I was 13, I was the perfect girl: beautiful, intelligent, clever, fierce and successful. But then I developed a crush on a guy who became my boyfriend and would continue to be in my life for the next 6 years. Throughout those 6 years I was a backup for him and he always put my down. Slowly I had lost all my talents. I gained weight, lost confidence and hence my charm. I lost my focus and finally, I lost myself. I was a shell of the person I previously was.
Thankfully, he found another girl and left me for good after 6 years. It hurt badly at that time but in hindsight, it was probably one of the best things that happened to me. I was completely hurt and the tough times that lasted for nearly a year showed me how many people truly loved me even at my worst.
I was still attracting negative stuff into my life and right when I was wondering why, I was gifted the book The Secret by my neighbour. I had always wanted to read it since I was a kid and so I engaged in it full time. I started practising letting go of the negative thoughts and I felt the love. I used the visualisation process to imagine being more beautiful, more focussed and the girl I was before I met my ex. I started giving love by volunteering at a school for blind.
Today, I’m proud to say that I’m trained in mixed martial arts, doing a direct PhD course in one of the top institutes in India and have successfully cleared one of the toughest entrance exams in the top 0.1 percentile, while also successfully running a blog. My focus is unwavering and I am surrounded by love. I have even attracted the man of my dreams and I am sure that we will end up in a relationship soon. I shall share that story when it happens.
A big wave of gratitude and love to the amazing people who shared their stories here and to The Secret team for giving this wonderful gift to humanity. Thank you!
