The Secret saved my life
I was introduced to The Secret by my boyfriend who is very into Physics and Chemisty. At first I thought it was just another book, so I had never even picked it up. My boyfriend began learning about Telekinesis and The Law of Attraction, looking up videos on youtube and other various websites to prove his theory that your mind does have untapped powers. Of course I was intrigued, who wouldn’t want to move something with their mind?
After trying for about two weeks, to calm my mind and make something move, I gave up. I couldn’t do it. I have ADHD and I just could not sit still for long periods of time or concentrate hard enough to stay on one thought. After failing, my depression worsened and I was suicidal once again, feeling like I was here ONLY to take care of everyone else and wallow in misery and pain forever….pretty depressing, and scary! I began to focus, unknowingly, on having only one thought at a time, and gaining more control over my mind/ADHD.
The Secret had been sitting on my boyfriends desk for months, and I had never cared to read it or even look at it, until I wanted nothing more than to control my thoughts. I went to his house and I saw the book, sitting on his desk like I’d never seen it before! I had this HUGE desire to read it, to look at the first page as if it would change something but I had no idea what! All I really knew at the time was that it looked like a cool book to read.
So, I went home and began reading. As I turned the pages I felt like a child finally realizing I had a brain and that I could actually use it for something. I have never been so drawn into a book in my entire life(I love to read). That was about a month ago, and since then I’ve been reading this amazing book and I’ve completely stopped getting sick, I am bursting with happiness that I havent felt in WELL over TWO YEARS. I actually don’t think I’ve ever been this happy in my life. All I want to do is tell everyone how insanely happy I am for NO REASON! I feel like I finally have my sanity back, I can think like a normal person and talk to people normally too. I’ve gained back almost all of the social skills I had lost.
After seeing how much my life could change in a matter of two and a half weeks, I decided I was going to test it on something a little more physical and indirect. My step sister(and best friend) had just turned 16 and of course I was broke right? A few days after her brithday I put it in my mind that I was going to make 50 bucks by the end of the week. Seemed like an easy task to me, and if the people in the book could do it, why not me right? I had believed all week that I already had it, like I KNEW for a FACT that it was in my future.
By the end of that week, on Saturday, I went to my nani’s house to clean and help make dinner for her dinner party that night. My nani would usually give me a 20 for everything. But for some reason, she decided that I’d earned 50 dollars. I wanted to scream and cry and jump on top of a skyscraper to shout to everyone how I was finally going to live my life and be happy and get the things I know I deserve and have earned. The best part was that my nani had NO IDEA what she had just done or been made to do. The 50 bucks took any doubt in my mind about the book and flushed them. I’ve never been so happy in my life.
I wish I could meet Rhonda Byrne to thank her for writing this amazing book that literally saved my life. Without it, I would’ve died, because I was going to commit suicide and ensure that I was successful just before reading it. If you do happen to read this post Ms. Byrne, I CAN NOT thank you enough for what you have done for me and anyone else with a story like mine. I am spreading this book as much as I can, every time I meet someone new I tell them a little about it and try to get them to go look it up. I’ve been very successful so far.
Anyway, that’s my story, and I’m happy about it. I’m thankful for finding the book, reading it, and I am definitely thankful for Rhonda Byrne, for making this book which was just the begining stepping stones to finally changing my life and making it MY LIFE. THANK YOU!!!
