Have Patience & Faith
After an unexpected break-up with my boyfriend, Jack, I was feeling really depressed, and felt like there was now a giant void in my life. I had always believed in the Secret, so when I was feeling down I would either watch the DVD or read my favourite parts out of the book. I started to feel better, and I started to gain back something I had lost… hope.
Jack and I had broken up in August, and after a month of not talking to each other, or seeing each other, he contacted me via e-mail. We chatted a bit and decided to meet. We hung out for a few hours, and watched a movie together, and I went home feeling happy.
Two weeks passed without hearing from him – but I held onto the hope that he would come around. Over the course of the following months we repeated the same pattern – we would hang out for an evening, watching movies and cuddling, and then he would go days or weeks without calling. It seemed like every time we started to get close he would intentionally distance himself.
This continued on for 3 months, but I held onto my hope. I believed with all my heart that he would realize that I could make him happy. I knew there was something holding him back, that he seemed scared to get close, and I prayed and had faith that whatever it was, he would overcome it. I wasn’t sure how it would happen, but it didn’t really matter – I knew he would get past it.
A few weeks ago we were having another one of our movie nights – the first one we had had in weeks. As I laid in his arms I focused all my energy on enjoying the moment, enjoying the feel of having him there with me, enjoying his company. When I decided it was time to leave I didn’t feel sad like I usually had when I left him, I felt appreciative for the time I got to spend with him.
The next day I had to work, and when I returned home I had 4 messages on my phone – all from Jack. He wanted to see me again! We had never, ever spent 2 nights in a row together. We rarely even spent 2 nights a week together. I agreed to see him, and when I got there he was acting different – he was more affectionate than usual, he continually sighed happily when he held me, and he lovingly rubbed my back. I wasn’t sure of what to think of it all when he suddenly asked, “So do you think we can make each other happy… ?”
I looked up at him and replied, “I really do.”
We’ve been together ever since. He calls me every day, and we see each other as often as we can. He always tells me how happy he is, and he’s a better boyfriend then he was when we were first together. He is much more attentive, loving, and caring then I could ever have imagined.
I am so grateful to God, and to Rhonda and the Secret Team, because without my faith and hope, I would have given up a long time ago, and would not have known this joy =)
