Obstacles And Miracles Are Boundless
It all started when I was fourteen.
I had just heard of The Secret from one of my friends. I saw the video and realized that it provided a decidedly simple solution to most of my problems. I grew up in a hostile environment. My mother was harassed by her in laws, starved when she was pregnant with me and my dad’s family did everything possible to make our lives miserable. My mother grew increasingly insane and verbally abused and thrashed me throughout my childhood. My father was a self-involved jerk who thought of me only as a reflection upon himself and forced me to pursue the dreams he couldn’t; making me abandon mine. I grew more and more depressed as the years went by. I tried to kill myself thrice before I turned sixteen. I had absolutely no reason to live.
They forced me to live in their cage, abusing me everyday. Their fights were raucous, my mother constantly fought with me and my dad would hit us both to make the arguing stop. He even punched me on the eve of my seventeenth birthday, the reason being that he believed that I was becoming arrogant as I grew up. He didn’t want me to grow up so he caged me in further. I was never allowed to walk out of our home anywhere by myself, even to the next street. I never went to any birthday parties, never had a phone, never allowed on facebook or anything else the kids my age would do on a daily basis. I never asked for freedom and when I tried they denied me even a thimbleful.
I finally lost the will to live or even to try to die. I couldn’t swallow food, couldn’t drink and what I consumed I would throw up. I started recovering slowly, it took me three years to get over it. In those three years however, I lost interest in school, I gained 15 pounds. I would only eat and watch TV.
Slowly I read all The Secret books. I did follow up research, but I still couldn’t get myself to believe. How could a life that pointless have any hope? How could I BELIEVE? But I just shut out the horror and took it one day at a time.
I began controlling the emotional eating and started studying. I was afraid that I would flunk math in my senior year final and never get a college to accept me. I spent the summer that year struggling to believe, but I forced myself to do it and here I am today.
I managed to leave my parent’s house, move to America and start a new life.
Today I am eight inches taller, twenty pounds lighter, 3 years older and just as wiser. I am now successful, rich and famous at a very young age.
I have my own apartment and I am financially independent. And finally I am at peace!
I had never known what it was like to be happy but now I am so filled with joy that I don’t know how I can keep it in.
I also found the man I fell in love with some years ago. We are blissfully happy together. I would have never believed this could happen as a naive teenager but The Secret changed my life.
It took me four years to understand it’s teachings but, by god are they wonderful and life changing! Once you let yourself believe and try!
