Out of the Ghetto
The worst point in my life was when I was living in South Central, with my boyfriend and our daughter in his mother’s house. My boyfriend was an alcoholic, who smoked too many blunts and did PCP. When we fought he would punch me, throw me around across the room, hit my head against the wall, choke me, pull my hair, and call me the worst names. There were nights I would lock myself in my daughter’s room because my boyfriend would come home so drunk and stay awake afraid for my life. Everyone around me knew what was going on, but did nothing. They even thought that I should keep quiet about it. Collect calls from my boyfriend in prison became normal. Money was tight as I only worked part time and my boyfriend couldn’t keep a job. I had to sell jewelry my mother gave to me long before. My boyfriend was very controlling and I had no friends. I just talked to his negative family members. I knew this wasn’t right for my daughter. Deep down inside I knew this wasn’t who I really was…I didn’t belong there.
That is when I decided to go to school. One of the teachers there was into the law of attraction. It felt very familiar. I read it and it’s power was overwhelming. I was still stuck in the ghetto, but when I got home from school I didn’t hang out with the negative people and instead, studied, which was really fun. Whenever a fight was coming I would go to school and put in hours. What struck me the most was the fact that I was responsible for my situation and I had the power to change it. I only had myself to blame for being in such a terrible place! I used to think I had no control over where my life was going. I also read about domestic violence and alcoholism and could no longer deny the truth. That is when the pity party ended.
After finishing school and getting my certificate in about 3 months. I decided to move out. First I needed a full time job and started searching. So two weeks after making this decision I found a job and moved out the next month. Funny thing is I put an ad out stating how I needed to rent a room in a house. The family that rented me the room was also into the law of attraction and became the family I didn’t have. I finally had friends from work and a social life. I was finally out of a toxic relationship and could finally start healing!
I remember getting out of work and looking up at the sky, it never looked so blue, clear and gorgeous. I could feel the tears in my eyes and felt so much gratitude and love. That is the vibration aligned with source that I read about. That is how I always want to feel. I wasn’t really living until I read and started practicing what was in The Secret. The book gave me a second chance, a second life. In my darkest hour reading The Secret and other books were my light. Thank you very much for changing my life. You really did save me.
