My Love Story.
I was 18 when I met my soulmate, he was 21. The minute we met there was something about him. We were in deep love and engrossed in our own lovely little world. There was nothing better in my life than to love him and be loved by him.
But there was a flip side to this story, my father. He was completely against a love marriage as is common in India. He had warned me since I was a teen to never to fall in love and that he would choose a match for me.
I don’t know why but I couldn’t stop myself from falling in love with my soulmate, it wasn’t intentional. I had never experienced this kind of love. It was magical.
Four years into my relationship, my father found out and asked me to leave the guy. I explained that I really loved him but he was unmoved. I begged, howled and pleaded but nothing worked, in fact, things got worse. He gave me two options, either to choose him or to choose the guy. I couldn’t do either. My father even stared abusing me and I was getting emotionally tortured each day. If that wasn’t enough, my mom was also harassing me. I hit rock bottom when my father threatened to me hit me if I was ever found talking to the guy. I would lock myself in my room for hours.
They had told me very clearly that their decision would never change and my life felt like it would end right there. I don’t know why but I knew that eventually, my parents would agree for my marriage with him. My friends use to think I was living in a bubble but nothing shook me from my belief.
Then one day it was like there was a different soul in my father, a kind soul, a loving soul who understood me and finally approved! This was the happiest day of my life!
I still don’t know how it happened but I always knew it would. I believed in it more than anything and now I know that The Secret works! I feel like the luckiest girl in the Universe and I am the Universe’s favorite.
I am grateful to God, my parents, the Universe and the love of my life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
