The Secret Saved Me.
I had a really humble upbringing. My mother struggled so much to provide even the basic things we needed to live. I lost my dad and my only sister earlier in my childhood. So when I was done with high school I had to get away from home to find a life for myself and give my mom a break from her struggles. My dad was never really that present, even when he was alive.
So when I got an opportunity to move from my town, I jumped on it. l lived with a friend for a few months then moved in with a boyfriend, all while trying to find something for me. I was 19 at the time and I got pregnant. I was happy, we were happy. I had my daughter and at only 2 weeks old she started developing challenges. She was diagnosed with epilepsy and delayed milestones. We were in and out of the hospital for so long and that strained the relationship with my boyfriend, so we broke up.
Ever since then I had been taking care of my daughter and my ailing mum, both of whom have to be on daily medication. However, I had done well for myself. I even took myself to college and got a diploma. I have hit highs and lows but l have always had a fighter spirit.
Last year l lost my job, then I lost a business I had started. I broke up from an engagement, and I miscarried twice. All of that eventually got to me and I became very depressed. It was all dark and I never wanted to come out of my room. I was angry and had no energy. I hated everything, and to get by I even started to abuse drugs. The more I did it the more I hated myself. I went into debt, my bills pilled up, and I stopped trying to do even the very little things. I was a monster to those around me. I treated them so badly then I would later lock myself up and cry.
This went on for over 9 months. I barely smiled or remembered how it felt being happy. I was giving up.
Then a month ago l got overwhelmed. I had suicidal thoughts and I could not sleep. I finally sought help. The therapist suggested that I read The Secret. I started reading it and I was transformed!
Now I am debt-free, my bills are paid up-to-date, my daughter’s school fees and medicine are paid for. My relationship is now so much better, no more arguments and blaming. We are talking about the future and investments. I am happy and hopeful! I am sleeping very well, am full of energy, and I am taking care of myself and those around me.
I have not gotten my business back but I know that I am going to start a bigger and better business. I am going to be very successful and happy. I am walking in abundance. Right now I am just thriving in this peace and love around me.
The Secret saved me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
