Not What You Expect.
While everyone is talking about their success stories, which some of us cannot relate to yet, my story is to tell you that the Universe really is unbiased and it will even give you the bad things you unintentionally wished for.
Throughout my life, I’ve always believed in jinxing my situation. Especially in situations involving getting sick, and I am sure everyone can relate to this.
One occasion, my boyfriend at that time was always too busy for me, never really took much care or gave me the attention as his girlfriend I deserved to get. So I thought, in the back of my mind, “Watch me get sick, then you’ll take care of me” and I did get sick, specifically, bad food poisoning! I was hospitalized and able to eat properly for a whole month.
Another time, it happened after I had gained some weight, and I thought back to the last time I got sick mentioned above. I had lost a lot of weight from the food poisoning and so I thought, “Wow that would be a shortcut to losing some weight”. And guess what? It happened.
Several other times included joking around with my boss about getting sick to get medical leave, getting sick to get assignment extensions in classes and even getting sick to chill at home for a few days, it all came true.
I have learned my lesson and though I have gotten what I wished for, I always regret it and am actually miserable when it does happen. I want to change my perspective to jinx only good things into entering my life!
