I would like to tell you my success story about The Secret. At first, I’m sorry for my English.
My mom gave me The Secret book about 7 years ago. At that time I started listen the book and was very interested in it and my life changed. Then 4 years ago, I met my first boyfriend. This developed well at first, but at some point we did not really do any good. It was toxic. He was a really nice guy, with a lot of love, but he had so many problems with himself. He really treated me badly and as a woman in love, I felt almost powerless. I wanted to stay with him because I was convinced it would get better. But it did not, it got worse day by day. At some point I started being thankful for everything. I was thankful for the experience and for the really nice guy that he was. But so there were so many problems and he did not know how to help himself or the relationship. Sometimes I really felt sorry for him.
I left my parents and neglected my friends for everything that was really unpleasant. I did not give up even though I was crying so many times and I did not know what to do anymore. Finally I realized that the only possibility was actually to go. But if you believe in something and you want something, you do not just give up. Maybe I was not strong enough either. I was afraid of the reaction of my parents too. I kept imagining what it would be like to go home and hug my mum and I wrote this down in my notes, ‘I will be happy at the right place, at the right time’.
And then I finally left our apartment and drove to my parents. At first I cried but then I was calm and composed. My mom was crying, she took me in her arms and said everything would be okay. And she was right. I was finally ready to be happy again.
Even if the weeks after that there were fights and it was a hard time, it made me stronger.
Then only a few weeks later, I met a young man who made me feel what happiness means. It was a wonderful time and he is still a special person in my life now. But we went separate ways a few months later and that was OK. It was time to start my own life. I had to learn to be alone again. It was hard but it was a wonderful experience because then when the time comes, I could be strong. When I understand myself better then I finally understood what it means to love yourself.
After almost 2 years single, I finally wanted someone in my life again. I imagined what my dream boyfriend looked like. I wrote down the exact qualities I would like him to have. I wanted a man that would treat me well and who was also confident in himself. Someone who loves children but still wants to experience his life first. Someone who wanted to travel and to experience the world, to go skiing with and to have an active sports life.
I was a bit lost in my work and absolutely did not expect it. I had registered with an online dating portal a while back but with no real thoughts and forgot about it. He contacted me and a few days later we started writing each other and now we have met and been seeing each other for several weeks. He is really so loving and much better than I could have dreamed of. He is really cute too but more importantly he has his heart in the right place.
I’m so thankful!
