When a bird is alive. It eats ants. When the bird is dead…ants eat the bird…Time and circumstance change at any time. Don’t devalue or hurt anyone in life. You may be powerful today. But remember. Time is more powerful than you! One tree makes a million match sticks…Only one match stick is needed to burn a million trees…So be good and do good.”
My best friend has always believed in Karma and whenever she used to mention it I would always roll my eyes and say “sure”. However, I’ve finally have come to the state of mind where I do believe karma exists. If you do something good, then something good will come your way, and if you do something bad, then something bad with come your way. I don’t know why I suddenly do believe in karma. Maybe it’s because I’ve been screwed over so many times in the last couple years I need to believe in something. In a way it does make perfect sense. I mean shouldn’t that be the way the world works? That if you do something good for someone that later in your life something good will happen to you and vice versa.
This seems pretty simple, but I don’t think it’s just that simple. And I actually have no clue how it works, but maybe we like to believe in karma because it comforts us a little. It’s comforting knowing that when someone screws you over they will feel how you felt. Maybe not today, or tomorrow, but some time later in life some bad karma will come their way. I have to admit that it’s comforting to think that the boy who broke you heart, the friend that stabbed you in the back, or people who are just mean to you for no reason will eventually have karma hit them in the face. Of course I have thought about that. I’m sure most people have.
There are some people that I have met throughout my life that I honestly hope karma comes their way. These people have truly hurt me and didn’t even care that they were doing so. People who create their own drama, deserve their own karma. So yes I do believe in Karma. I think what goes around comes around. That if someone did something bad, that it will eventually come back around to them.
I need to stop putting myself in situations with people who aren’t worth my time and who just bring me down with them. When someone hurts me I have a tendency of wanting to hurt them back, but instead of wanting to get even with them I need to learn to rise above, and leave it alone. Karma works wonders…so they say. I’ve had people who screwed me over so badly and then they just sat there and laughed at me. They even told me I deserved it. I found this quote and I thought it was perfect for my life -“Stop setting yourself on fire for people who will sit there and watch you burn.” I’ve learned that some people won’t always have good intentions for you, but no matter how hard it is you need to let go of these toxic people in your life. They do nothing but hurt you and bring you down with them. Let karma handle them.
I think bad karma has come my way a few times too. I’m not a perfect person. I’ve hurt some people and I think I’ve received bad karma because of it. Sometimes it can be a life lesson. That if you aren’t good to people, then people won’t be good to you. So all you can do is learn from it, and when the situation comes around again hopefully you make the better choice. I’m learning everyday.
