When Did I Stop Becoming Me?
The entire time I was reading The Secret I had my journal with me every step of the way. I’d never read The Secret if my journal wasn’t with me. That’s how powerful this book is.
Every chapter gave me butterflies and I kept saying to myself, “Is this really happening? Am I finally going to change my life?!”
You see, I graduated high school 2 years ago and I was so indecisive of what I wanted to do with my life and who I wanted to be that I ended up taking a year off which turned into two! Instead of focusing on myself and on my life I kept putting things off to the side.
When I got to the chapter about relationships I realized that I wasn’t myself. I didn’t love myself enough to let good things happen to me. I realized I stopped being myself for a while. Thinking I was better off pleasing everyone else but myself. Putting myself last in everything. All throughout middle and high school I always had someone I would follow instead of making things go the way I wanted. I began to lose sight of who I was because I was busy doing what other people were doing that I forgot how to be independent. And now it’s reached up to me. When it was time to be independent I didn’t know how to do it. I have this inner fear that’s stopping me.
This book made me realize it was fear. A year ago I read a quote that said, “Never let fear decide your fate.” I dwell on it so much to get me through my days and this book is helping me break through my shell. And I feel myself learning how to be myself again.
I’m not currently finished with the book yet but I already have so much to say. The Secret has helped me expand my mind and stopped me from limiting myself. You create your own limits. It’s time to unlimit yourself. I feel like I can do anything at this point. And I will do just that!
Thank you so much for this magical piece of art. I’ll forever treasure it in my heart.
