One Thing To Uplift, One Thing To Drag Down.
I don’t want to talk in circles and so this is a story of my hidden bully.
My mother always taught me that, “Sweetheart, don’t ever wish something bad for anyone” and I lived by this principle. I believed in karma and always thought my sadness was a result of my actions, but instead it was a result of my attractions.
Two years ago, I was single, 17 and in school, doing just below average. My parents had high expectations and were permanently disappointed and I couldn’t see their love for me. Most of my problems came from being friends with this one girl. This girl who was one of my closest friends and my biggest and worst bully. Whenever anything went wrong in her life, I was expected to fix it. I was taunted and mocked for the way I conducted myself and constantly made fun of. I cried each day and desperately wanted someone to understand me, but no one would. She would dominate and change my words and turn everyone against me, while calling me her best friend. Every word she said hurt and brought me down.
I found out about The Secret but I never applied it. But then just when I was at my lowest, I finally started to use it. It turned my life around. I practised what it said daily. I changed the way I thought of myself and my life.
Soon came in a guy, the guy who to date has taken care of me and has been the most perfect boyfriend ever. I started working hard for school and as hard as it might be to believe, I went to the top of my class. The next school year was my final year and it made me realize my dream of becoming an architect. Not only was I able to devise the most amazing portfolio for myself, I have been accepted into one of the most prestigious school’s in the world. My parents are proud of me and I am finally able to see their love.
The Secret might sound like a hoax but it changed my life, in a way I could’ve never imagined. I am still working to achieve my goals and the last 2 years have been a long process but it has been a journey full of miracles.
And so like I said, there was one bully who brought me down and The Secret (friend) who only lifted me up.
