The Secret Changed My Life!
It all started when I was 13 years of age. I was always underweight, unhealthy with low self-esteem. My mother, siblings and I moved to Ireland whilst my dad went back to the Gambia, West Africa to work. People used to make fun of me and call me names like anorexic, chicken legs and skin and bones. Being the only black female in my class in a predominantly white school, I was judged for the way I looked, the colour of my skin and the difference in my afro hair, made me feel all the more alone. My mother and I didn’t have a good relationship at the time, we could never see eye to eye. She didn’t understand me or even try to understand me so we always clashed. I hated being at school and my family household wasn’t a great place to be.
This carried on for years and I began feeling alone and as though no one cared or loved me. That was when I started to suffer from depression and anxiety. My life was about to take a turn for the worse at such a tender age! I gave up all my dreams and aspirations of becoming a dancer. I began getting involved with the wrong type of crowd, drinking excessively just to numb the pain. I moved out of my mother’s home by the age of 17 and went back to the UK. I was alcohol dependent by the age of 18 and suicidal by the age of 19. I then found myself being severely under weight to the point where it was difficult for me to move around or do simple activities such as walking as my joints were so brittle. My anxiety was so bad that I wouldn’t leave the house because I was too embarrassed for people to see how underweight and unhealthy I was. I would only go to the corner shop at most but it had to be very late at night and I would wear hoods, hats and really baggy clothing. I was so desperate to feel any kind of love, even if it wasn’t real. At least I got to feel like someone wanted me there. Of course, I was mistreated, controlled, manipulated, taken advantage of and as you can imagine, it just put me in an even worse situation.
I had given up, I couldn’t handle it anymore. I felt like I had no purpose in the world, I had no one that I felt loved me at all. In 2013 I had decided to overdose on pills and alcohol but then, I had a weird feeling and something stopped me from doing it. A voice said to me ”Just hold on’’.
A few days after I was introduced to The Secret! Because I was in such a negative mindset I couldn’t resonate with anything positive so I thought it would be a waste of time. But I watched the documentary and it changed my whole perspective in that very moment. I couldn’t believe that the law of attraction was a real thing. Now I know why that voice told me to ‘Just hold on’. Little did I know this secret was around the corner waiting for me.
I manifested things that I didn’t think I could ever have or have the strength to do. I found the strength to leave a 3-year relationship that was no longer serving me. I gained 30 pounds, the first 17 pounds I gained in just 3 weeks. For a long time, I wasn’t well enough to work but after I got better I manifested a job and started making my own money and I passed my driving test. I began dancing again and doing performances around the UK. I managed to buy a car and I am now running the family business. I attracted some amazing people into my life and mended relationships with family. I have also just recently started making inspiring videos to help others that are in difficult situations and can’t seem to find the light.
I am now 22 and I feel like for the first time I am living my life. I never understood the concept of ‘you can be who you want and do what you want’ until I watched The Secret. It has changed my whole life.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
