Because I Believed
This won’t be a long story, because after learning “The Secret” the effects made it a wonderfully short anecdote.
I had liked this boy so much for literally years, and it never came to anything. In fact, when I was fourteen he hurt me and I never thought I would ever be able to get over it.
For the next three years I tried to forget him, but I knew in my heart that I didn’t really want to move on despite him seeming not to have a care in the world for me.
I came across The Secret after watching a self help program on T.V in which it was featured. I got my dad to go out and buy it, and like it says in the book, I suddenly felt woken from a long seventeen year sleep. I felt I could do anything, be anything, get anything!
It became clear to me, was it any wonder that nothing had happened with me and this boy?! No! I had simply focused on how he had hurt me, how he was “too good” for me, and how I could change to make him like me again.
I started dreaming, about 50% of my time, really dreaming. Dreaming of all the times we would have. I would close my eyes and sometimes it would shock me how real it felt.
I let go of any doubt I had and started to feel good about myself, and felt the glorious weight of self worth become part of me. I was a new person.
I never ran into this boy by chance, ever, but suddenly I kept seeing him from a distance or bumping into him.
We were not in the same social circles and most boys my age are afraid to come out of their social clique, however one day I checked my Inbox and there was one glorious email asking me how I was… from him. The emails developed into chat, exchanging of phone numbers, texts, late night calls, and finally we met.
I was in control. I knew I was worth him (and more!), and after a few weeks we embarked on a relationship.
I am not lying when I say it is everything I dreamed in my head that it would be.
I hope I don’t sound big headed, but despite “the odds”, he is crazy about me.
I passionately recommend The Secret and all it’s philosophies – it really does work. But I think it should be stressed to persevere – don’t let time bring you down!
