Hey, soul sister.
When I was in grade 8, before I even knew about the law of attraction, I was feeling very sad and fearful. I felt like every day was just as pointless as the next. I had no one to talk to. My family were only close in proximity and my friends were… less than friends. I was going from a small school of 200 people to a high school of 1000+ in a matter of months, and I was very scared. I thought I was unbearably ugly, boring and weird. People would tell me I never smiled, or that I sucked in gym class. Once someone told me I looked like a Sasquatch. So every time I felt lonely I would say to myself, “Jessica, you are going to meet the most amazing friends you can imagine in high school.” I did not say it because I knew about the Secret, (which I didn’t.) I said it because it got me through the day.
Only a few weeks later I met exactly that – and it was way before I even entered high school! She was a girl that was always there but I never really noticed her. She spoke less than perfect English because she came from Colombia a year or so before. We had next to nothing in common but our sense of humor was perfectly in sync. We laughed and talked about EVERYTHING. Without her I would be a completely different person. She taught me to dress nice, wear contacts, and love myself. I taught her English.
Now we are both 16 and loving our lives. I swear our friendship gets closer every day. Can you believe people tell me I’m HOT now? And it’s because my lovely friend was the first person to tell me I’m pretty. It just spiraled from there.
Here is a textual conversation we once had;
Friend: You know what?
Friend: I love you.
She is crazy and adorable and I love it. Thank you universe for bringing her to me.
