I’ve always been a believer in karma. Some people don’t believe in it, and that’s okay for them, but I’ve seen it too many times to dispute it in my life. If you do good things, good things will come back to you. Just as, if you lie, cheat, and steal, it will come back to you. Sometimes we have to go through some very rough times before we feel the effects of karma, but it’s usually quite satisfying when we finally see it pan out!
I’ve known people who have had their hearts broken, and they claim they did all the right things. They treated their former partner with respect, spoiled them, doted on them, etc. Now usually, a breakup is a two way street, but occasionally, it is true that one person gives more, and gets taken advantage of. They can’t understand why things didn’t work out when they were doing all the right things. Well, of course, it’s a life lesson, but the “karma bus” will most definitely catch up to the one who did the hurting! It may take time, but I believe it will happen. And, the one who got hurt usually ends up with someone a lot more suited for their personality and needs….someone who treats them with respect and reciprocates the good care they have given. Soooooo….karma has come back to them in a positive way. It works both ways.
If someone has been a liar and cheat for most of their lives, it’s not usually an easily broken habit. They get away with it for as long as they can, and when it catches up to them, they still don’t take responsibility for their dishonesty. In their minds, it will always be someone else’s fault. There are people in this world who make a living cheating others….their spouses, neighbors, family, customers, the government…. They’re greedy, arrogant, lying cheaters. Instead of compromise, they tend to bully their way through life, using money to get their way. And when called out and proven that they’re in the wrong, they still refuse to admit it…..didn’t happen….fake news…… They’re somehow above the rest of us who have tried to do the right things, and they continue their shady ways. Don’t worry…..karma will catch up to them.
I try to always be nice and understanding to people. I make mistakes, just like everyone else, but I try to remedy it in my actions every day. I’ve always believed that if you are kind and nice, warm and friendly, generous and compassionate, you will get that in return. Not everyone treats me the way I’ve treated them, and it really does hurt. That’s when I tell myself that I have to step back and try not to care about their poor treatment. Their karma will get them just as mine will reward me. I’ve made a point to “be the bigger person” so many times. It sometimes sucks (a lot!), and I admit, I get tired of it. I have done things for people who I know will never treat me with the same kindness and respect. Sometimes I have to protect myself and just walk away…..no hate or anger….just self preservation. Karma can take care of that too!
Be good to people. Be good to those who are good to you. To the liars, cheaters, arrogant people and meanies….sit back, rev up the engine on the karma bus, and watch what happens. Let karma take care of it.
