Karma: She is the unbiased, unapologetic force to be reckoned with. Everybody gets what they deserve in the end; there is no time limit.
Be very careful about how you treat others, because it will always come back to bite you.
In a general sense of the word, it’s safe to say going behind people’s backs, lying to them, and hurting their feelings are the first things that come to mind. We are taught these actions are unacceptable. It’s an unspoken rule not to partake in these types of negative behaviors.
But something that you should be extremely mindful of is how you treat good people—those who are kind and loving towards you.
Why You Should Always Be Careful About How You Treat Others
Some people are brought into your life to teach you lessons and show you empathy, to lift you up when you need it most. Some people are simply meant to be temporary. But this does not mean they are out to hurt you. It simply means the Universe brought them into your life to help you in some way.
You should be asking yourself each day: If somebody treated me the way I treated them, would I still be happy with myself? Empathy truly goes a long way. Put yourself in their shoes. Write your words down and read them back to yourself. Do they seem fair?
Cruelty doesn’t serve a purpose other than attracting exactly that back into your life.
Those who are only trying to help you shouldn’t be treated as disposable. You may have conflicting personalities with somebody or you might have outgrown them—there is nothing wrong with that.
You don’t have to be a perfect human being.
But you need to be mindful of the way your words and actions could affect others and part of this includes a great deal of self-reflection—understanding that every hurtful action you take is one that could come back and hurt you in the exact same way.
And when you begin making kinder choices in life, things will also begin to look up for you.
It costs nothing to exercise kindness.
