Does this ever really happen? I know when something bad happens to you by the hand of another, people close to you usually say..."Well, what goes around come around." or "They'll get theirs someday." I know that people say that but, does it ever really happen?
Sometimes you hear the term 'Paybacks a bitch.' Some may say that to their friend after they play a practical joke on you but, have you ever thought that after something else has happened? I know the days where I've been irritated, bothered or angry, I thought that saying in my head. I know...not good.
Or the word 'Karma' comes to mind. People use this term in both good and bad situations. If you do good things...good things will come to you. Or just the opposite, if you do bad things bad things will come to you. There's a saying in the bible...Do unto others as you'd have done unto you. That goes along the same lines. It seems like a pretty simple philosophy to live by. So why is it that you still have people that mistreat you?
I've been reading The Secret, and trying to stay positive with things. So, the thought is you wish good things to happen to people(even if they mistreated you) in hopes that that energy will come to you. What you put out there is what you get back. I am doing my best on this but, here's my problem. When you have someone that was mean, or hurtful to you and they seem to have no problem with what they did to you and they're not apologetic...how do you wish really great things for them? Basically, how can you hope good for them when they don't feel sorry or maybe even realize the things they did was wrong and they are off living the happy life?
I have a friend that told me once, "Erin, I'm one of those people that if you hurt me...I want to hurt you 10x more." I have to admit, I'm a little like that too. Although, I usually don't do anything about it except maybe write a blog about them. Although, I know one time I told someone I hoped they burned in HELL! Needless to say I think that might've bothered them. Anytime you say that God will have his way with them...I think scares people!
So what do I need to take from all of this? I will hope for the best for people. I will do my best to be happy for people even if they've been mean, or disrespectful to me. But I can't help but wonder... like the Justin Timberlake song...what goes around comes around...true or not true?
