Getting scammed and how that frustrating experience narrows you down

So, let me tell you about this recent experience I had. I bought a gig on a freelancer site, thinking it would be a great opportunity. It seemed legit, with over 250+ reviews… 

But guess what? It turned out to be a total scam! I was scammed out of my money, and to make things worse, the site refused to give me a refund. 

Can you imagine how frustrated and disappointed I felt? I kept replaying the situation in my mind, questioning myself and wondering why I didn't see the signs earlier. It consumed me for days, and I realized this past month (May) was the worst month so far this year because I had other jobs lined up and those didn’t come to completion.

But you know what? It’s on me. Yes, I lost money, and I felt scammed, but I needed to just clear my mind and open myself to the possibility of other things. 

I've come to the realization that instead of dwelling on this issue, I need to let it go and trust that everything will work out.

But gosh… I can't even describe the mix of emotions I felt when I found out I was scammed, especially because I see the best in people. 

You won't believe how much I overthought this whole situation. I kept replaying it in my head, thinking about what I could have done differently. It became a never-ending cycle of negative thoughts that made me feel even worse. It was like a dark cloud hanging over me, preventing me from seeing all the opportunities that were right in front of me.

What's funny is that this one bad experience made me think the whole month was a disaster. I let it overshadow all the other great things that were happening. I had so many other job opportunities lined up, but I couldn't see them because I was too focused on this one setback. It was like I was trapped in this negative mindset.

But you know what? I've come to realize that I need to let go of this negative experience and start embracing all the opportunities that are waiting for me. I can't keep dwelling on what went wrong. I need to trust that everything will work out in the end. Sure, it's not easy, but it's the only way I can move forward and make the most of what's ahead. 

So, here's to letting go, embracing trust, and believing that better things are on the horizon!

Money is energy and if we come to terms with that, we’ll realize that things come and go, and even if it’s unfair and we’re so upset about the whole situation, life will be ok! 

I need to get over this fast and move on, let’s do this, starting TODAY! If you’ve ever been in this position before, clear your head, it will help you forget about the whole situation. It’s better to get over this sooner than later…
