I wrote this article back in 2007, when I was in Pam Ragland's course...
I want to address the phenomenon of the "Law of Attraction" vs. "victim mentality" in today's post.
Most of us interpret the Law of Attraction as a kind of "Cosmic Soup Kitchen" where you sit at a table, a waitperson comes and takes your order, and then you wait for your order to come.
Sometimes your order comes, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes you get something totally different, something that you didn't want.
Some people's order comes faster than yours, some others' slower, or never.
It all seems random, and capricious. Like the Universe is playing a game with you.
Frustrating to most, happy and great for some. It seems like there are chosen people, or lucky, and something invisible marks YOU as the one who should never get ahead, never get what you want.

I wrote this article 12 years ago. I was 60 years old. I had a lot more money than I have now, I wrote my blog only for my personal pleasure, like a journal.
I was the happiest I had been in my life... but I had no idea that I could be happy... every day, no matter what.
That came later... I was still looking for a home, looking for answers to questions, like why am I not liked... as you'll see in this article.
I am republishing the article because, I think, you'll see yourself in it... especially the in comparison part.
I am comparing myself to others and I am coming out short... while I fancy myself better... lol.
Comparison is a very potent misery maker.

I got a thank you note today. I get quite a few of those, I must admit.
They are a great way for me to track how the methodologies and principles I use in my teaching work. I mean, how effective I am, how effective the methods are. They track my ability to make a difference in the world. (Someone please remind me to write about how I view my making a difference... OK?)
This note reads
Today was a huge success. I did not even recognize myself. I was attempting to have a conversation with my sister when she became extremely aggressive upon trying to control me and failing. She was in my face yelling and pacing around in circles. I remained calm and did not attempt to defend myself as the lies flew at me. I was able to stick to the subject and not accuse. At this point her husband jumped in and tried to intimidate me, pointing his finger in my face and yelling. They both looked like mad men ganging up on me. I did not raise my voice or get emotional. This is the first time in my life I had no fear in a confrontational situation and it felt GREAT! To be honest I think it frightened my sister & her husband. They did not know what to think of me, I have had many weaknesses in the past but now I am strong.
