From Loneliness To A Better Social Life!
Hi guys! I want to thank you for all the stories you’ve shared. They’ve kept the hope alive in me when times were dark. And today I’m in a much better position thanks to The Secret and the stories here that help me keep the faith!
Three years ago I was just entering a new school. I was shy and afraid, and always the quiet one. I made some friends, and got a boyfriend, who was one of the popular kids in school. My circle of friends were small, and it was him, who introduced me to other people. Even so, I was still quite shy and he would protect me with whatever influence he had.
About a year later we broke up. I had almost nobody, as most of my friends or acquaintances came through him. I was not close to my circle of friends and often kept to myself, so they weren’t really an option to confide in. I was lucky that there were 2 friends on his side that helped get me through this dark period of my life.
I tried to hold on to my ex as I knew that he still liked me, but he soon got over it and moved on with his life. It was about 2 months after the breakup and I thought the 2 angels also may have expected me to at least not be so hurt. But it still was, especially when he started going out with another girl.
I dreaded all my break times as I was mostly alone. I had nobody to lunch with. I even preferred class time where at least I might have to interact with others. But when I went home I was alone. Nobody asked me to hang out after school. Nobody invited me to any events. I had no social life, and it affected my self esteem and image. I often felt sad and lonely. I tried to use The Secret to help me with my loneliness, but it was so difficult as the contrast was huge. Still, something inside me always tried to find comfort by saying that everything will be alright, and that it’s better to have real friends than many superficial ones.
Internship period was coming up, and there was a company that I really wanted to get into. I prayed for it day and night, and even my teacher did her best to help me with my application. Yet the company rejected it, and I was posted somewhere else.
In the new company, I met a girl and finally found a friend in her. Things were going tough for me in that company. My co-workers were catty and often left me out for lunch. However, my new found friend stood up for me and tried to help me behind the scenes, even though she had left the company soon after my internship started. Despite such a trying period, I taught my friend The Secret, and I used it on other areas on my life such as to redecorate my room, etc to distract myself from the misery there. My friend wanted to attract a man with a BMW who was crazy about her. And lo and behold!!! It happened!
Meanwhile I still tried to get in contact with my ex, although I could see his interest fading away. Soon after something really bad happened to one of his close friends, and he reacted as if he didn’t care for her. I was shocked, and decided that perhaps he changed, and isn’t who he used to be. I let go of him completely.
Thankfully my internship ended and I still hung out with that girl. I slowly met a few new people through her, although they were just acquaintances and I didn’t keep in contact. Still, I was happy I finally had a tiny bit of a social life.
School soon started again, and I was faced with this loneliness once more. I decided to mix with others who were outside of my course, and made some acquaintances outside. The girl from the internship kept me through this period. Soon, I met a guy through her too, and he liked me very much.
Today, I’ve graduated, and I’ve kept myself busy with volunteering and working part time. I’m slowly meeting more and more people, and I have faith that things are starting to get better. Now I have friends, true friends around me, and this was exactly what I wanted while I was in the darkness. I have prayed for it, and it took the Universe a little over a year to manifest all of these.
Even though it hurts at times, know that you have to let go of the past in order for the Universe to unlock an even brighter future for you!
