For most of my not-so-long life( I am now 15), I've always had self-esteem issues. I don't know where they came from, I just never considered myself pretty. Things got worse when I was about 12 or 13 (Note: I've seen "The Secret" when I was 10, but it didn't interest me much because I was so young). The only guys that ever liked me were awkward and antisocial. I was a new kid and an outcast. Then, I remembered "The Secret" and decided to change my life. I still had some self-esteem issues, but I made a lot of new friends. It was all great until the middle of my freshman year. I had my "first love" (hate using that phrase but you know what I mean haha) and it all brought me down again. Things got worse, I had depression and social anxiety, I didn't talk to anyone except my close friends and I spent 3 weeks at home, sick (another way how our thoughts affect our bodies). My mom refused to take me to therapists and told me to use the secret-- AND IT WORKED. Not only I became a happy person, I am now fully content with myself and I improved my grades so much that I couldn't believe it because it was mathematically impossible. When this summer started, I started reading a list of affirmations, and one of them was about being attractive to the opposite sex. I started noticing changes immediately. I started getting attention from guys everywhere, wherever I go, ever at a pizzeria. Of course, things get a little extreme sometimes, like thirty year olds giving me their numbers, or getting modeling job offers from clubs because I look 18 while I am actually 15 (AWKWARD!). It's amazing because just a few months ago I couldn't imagine anyone normal being attracted to me!
But there's one thing that is very hard for me. I am not sure how to manifest small physical changes because I can't stop checking for them! And it's really important, because I am in a modeling agency, and I might need braces but we cannot afford them right now. I really wish I could use the LOA to straighten one of my teeth and get rid of my stretchmarks (that are starting to fade by the way), but I don't know how to do it. Affirmations work the best for me but I don't know how to phrase them about my stretchmark issue (since I can't say that "I have no stretchmarks"). Any ideas?
