They say being wealthy, you must be rich, but I disagree. Wealthy to me is having it all that means money, love, happiness, freedom andgood health. I consider myself as wealthy because I was not born in a too well off family. We had to struggle through life. We sometimes did not eat food we slept hungry. I remember my father tellingus; it is only you that can make your life successful. I really did not understand at that time what that meant but the words came to life later in life. My parents struggled through life and they managed to take us to school and do I tell you I worked hard so as to succeed because as the saying goes you are nothing in this world without education. People in school used to call me by all sorts of name because I came from a poor family. But that did not in any way discourage me. I had it all my parents love and good grades but something was missing, I had this void in me that I thought the only way it could get filled was from the love from the opposite sex.
The only thing I remember I was not a social person and that means boys did not notice me and that really frustrated me because all my friends had boyfriends. I really wanted to have a boy in my life so desperately that I fell for the traps of another guy who used to abuse me but I could not leave me because he was the only person that had noticed me in the whole school or so I thought. I became pregnant. This really disappointed my father and me too. I decided to stop and focus on my studies but I kept going back to the guy and with time I got pregnant again. Now this was the last blow. My father threw me out of the house and my mother could not do anything because it either I go or we leave together, I had to go to the father of my children to support me but he too refused. All alone, in the world, I had to come with ways on how to survive and a friend reached out to me and truly showed me my problem. She told me that I had never accepted that the death of my sister was not my fault and I had never truly healed and I thought the only way to cover up my guilt and make me feel good was love from men which was wrong. She told me for me to achieve the status I so desired in life was to forgive myself and let go of the guilt. I had to go through self-healing and self-realization.
And with time I gained confidence, I started to love me more and more. I never knew that confidence in yourself could get you the thing you want. As I was going through my business on this day I met this handsome guy, we got talking and we became really good friends with time. One thing led to another, and today we are happily married and he adores my two children. I got the opportunity to finish my school and today I am a successful lawyer.
