I was a girl who used to love to make friends . When there was a new girl in our class usually I was the first person to talk to her. But, my pride swallowed my innocence. I thought I had everything and started becoming bad as nothing good happened in my life. People eventually around me started to hate me. I wasn’t good at sports, studies or arts. The only thing I liked was music. But for the sake of my parents and their image, I used to perform average.
Gone were the days I was popular, naughty and loved by everyone. So, I started becoming lonely. I tried hard to gain my reputation but to no avail. (maybe because I was only focusing on the things I don’t want) All bad things started coming my way. Teachers started to see me as a bad student. The progress card of 9th standard was very poor and my parents were angry on me. In addition, I didn’t get along well with my relatives as they thought I was “childish” because I have become friends with girls who were smaller than me. Even my sibling started saying that I wasn’t “mature enough”. I even tried attempts of suicide in 9th standard because of the feelings of loneliness, despair, hated and exclusion that had started coming in me. I thought that people will be happier without me.
My father also called me “mentally unstable” and that I should reciprocate for the things they have done for me in life. I thought so many times about ending my life but did not have the courage to do it. I was scared and afraid somewhere in my mind. Our home is filled with quite a lot of books. As I was looking through the title of many books, I wasn’t seeing anything very interesting until I came across the title of a book called The Secret. I thought it would be some mystery book so I started reading it.
Instantly, I started using The Secret and it started working for me. That day the tubelight in my room had been not working so I visualized,imagined that my tubelight was working. I also told my dad that the tubelight will be fixed in no time. The next day, my dad brought a tubelight. But, when he was trying to fix it, it was not working. He told me to help him, and as soon as my hand touched the tubelight it started working!! This was a small example that I used.
To tell you the truth, my hair is quite oily and I have a lot of dandruff and hair falling out was common for me. Even my mother used to say ” In one or two years, you will lose all your hair!!”. Even trying many shampoo didn’t work on me. But, I had made a list of things that I am grateful for and it overflowed with many things. I had also wrote,” I have really smooth, soft, silky and thick hair. I had imagined my hair to be like that. Even the girls who used to tease me for having a bad smell in my hair stopped teasing me. To my surprise, the results were showing exactly as I wanted. I know this is a quite a stupid example…but not being bullied by other girls is what I wished for. My friends have also started liking me and are surprised by the sudden change in me.
Thank you to all readers , god, the people who helped in my life in some way or the other (includes relatives,family, friends, classmates, teacher and the list continues…) Thank you Rhonda for giving joys to billions. I am sure the book worked like an angel for us!!(and of course me). And even if my dad doesn’t believe in it (even though he was the one who bought it for himself) I am sure that I will prove it by getting really excellent marks which he doesn’t expects from me. I have faith in myself and the genie on my table!!!
