The Secret To Redemption.
My true problem was self worth, specifically the lack of. I didn’t believe that I was valuable or worthy of love or success. I believed that I could find things outside of myself to give me value, I especially believed being loved by someone else would give me value. I found someone that I learned how to love unconditionally, one the most beautiful gifts I’ve been given. The only problem was I didn’t unconditionally love myself and no relationship will last if you can’t reflect self love outward. In this relationship I broke all my own rules, sold out and bent to every force against me to try to keep this person in my life.
I started enabling this person’s addiction which lead to an addiction of my own. I lost all material possessions, all hope and all self control to this addiction. To financially maintain my addiction I turned to stealing and other criminal activities. I was arrested 6 times in a 3 month period, eventually serving 2 years in jail for my crimes. I had no hope, believing that when I was released I would be homeless, friendless and optionless.
I literally had nothing to lose, so from rock bottom looking up, I decided I would chance everything because I obviously wasn’t doing anything right. I changed my perspective, my attitude, my beliefs about myself. When I was released from jail I was given a place to stay the first night out. Within the first week I got a job and a car, within the first 3 months I got into a beautiful relationship and got another new car. I was grateful for all I had and always chose to focus on the positive I could take away from any situation. Quickly all the things I wanted for myself came into my life.
Then I got complacent. I stopped appreciating those things, I complained and expected bad things to happen. And in no time my thoughts materialized into reality and all the things I was blessed with started crumbling and disappearing. I got back on drugs, lost my relationship, got fired from my job and was depressed. At my lowest moment I remembered how I had changed my life by attracting good things with my positive thoughts, so I decided again to reprogram myself.
I studied and watched countless law of attraction videos, read books and then stumbled upon The Secret on Netflix. I picked myself up, started recognizing negative thoughts and changing them. I got a new and better job, I beat addiction and quit heroin after a week of fighting the temptation and physical dependency. I’m healing and nurturing a relationship that ended badly and best yet, I’m filled with the confidence and security that I have the power to create the life I want and I am writing the story I want for my life. And as I write this story, my life has never been better! I am grateful The Secret has come to light in my life, it has changed me for the best. Thank you!
