Law of Attraction Success Story: “I Finally Have a Group of Friends”

One of the main ways I overcame most of my depression, found a truly awesome life partner, made lots of money and much more isn’t surprising: it’s gratitude. Gratitude for the good, gratitude for the bad, and gratitude for the okay-but-would-like-to-improve. However, there is something in my life that as  I haven’t always appreciated enough, namely: friendship.

One of the things I am the very worst at in all of life, besides all of the things I haven’t tried, of course—and I’d even be better at some of those—is one of the most important, and it is this: making friends.

Maybe it’s because I’m Type A and a bit of a workaholic. Or maybe it’s because I tend toward introversion. Over the past year or so, though, I’ve been saying occasional affirmations for increased friendship, and last December, it finally began to happen.

I began to make new friends, and not just a few–a lot. I joined a couple of groups on meetup.com and was shocked to discover how many amazing, good, kind, intelligent people are out there.

And some of them even call you back.

It’s spirituality for the rest of us.

Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?

Why are their results so difficult to replicate?

You’re Getting Closer and The Power of Acceptance. Get them for an uplifting price on Amazon.

  1. Mollie! —

    I’m so glad you wrote about this. Relationships, good ones, are among the greatest of riches. Houses, cars, stuff — it all pales in comparison. These new friends are lucky to have you in their lives, as you are fortunate to have them.

    Thank you for putting this out there —

  2. I started on meetup.com and, after a few visits, I have had people and things come into my life, outside of the group, that has not made it necessary to return. But, knowing the group is there is wonderful!

    1. I agree. Knowing the group is there is part of what makes it so great. And I think it’s possible that after you signed up, you started feeling more socially “successful” (shall we say), which then allowed those other people to come to you!

      I think this happened with my husband. After discovering online dating, I met him within a few months, though I promised myself not to jump into anything too quickly …
