I listened to a lot of the teachings of Abraham hicks. I had attracted all of my heartbreaking circumstances thru my thoughts and feelings. This realization brought a much needed sense of empowerment. I was not a victim of circumstance,nor was I cursed. I was simply a flawed human being in need of healing and a chance for a new start. The power to create my new life was within me and I anticipated a bright future although my heart was still skeptical. Logically I had a chance to turn things around. Hope was no longer just a word.
