I have to apologize in advance for the language I am going to use. But I absolutely love the expression Karma is a bitch! Why? Because it's so true. I mean how many times has someone done something over the top to you and all you can think is "you'll get yours because karma is a bitch and so are you!"
We've all heard the expressions. "What goes around, comes around", "You reap what you sow," "What goes up must come back down" and I think even the saying from the Bible is applicable in this case. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." I think each and every one of these saying speaks the truth in volumes. I really do believe that we are all held accountable for all of our actions. But that doesn't mean that all of our bad behavior will be greeted with bad reactions in response. No, I believe that when good is done to you, something good is bound to happen to you as well.
I try to treat people the way that I want to be treated because I know the Universe allows us to feel the same way we once made someone else feel. So I try to be careful on how I treat others. I remember when my ex-boyfriend started dating someone else and never bothered to tell me, just let me figure it out after I saw the pictures of them kissing on Facebook. It was funny because his wife (yep, they eventually did get married...all under a year's time, but that's another topic) wrote me an email and said she thought that I was a good person, because she had a similar thing happen to her (yet, she did the same thing to me, again another topic... lol) and she totally lost it on the girl. Well not to say that I didn't have a reaction to what happened, but I did decide not to "do anything." I figured that the situation will work itself out and I know all too well about karma. I'm not sure if it's the right thing to focus on, but that was the main reason I didn't do a lot of what I wanted to do. I knew that it was in God's hand and He will work on my behalf. I thought about the situation and I knew that whatever I did, karma would hold me accountable and I would have to pay for it eventually or if I behaved in a decent way, karma would reward my actions. I decided to do the latter.
Believe it or not, I really did make peace with my ex and his wife. They are my FB friends (maybe they won't be after this post, who knows). I did all of that because I truly do forgive both of them, even if I can't forget what happened. And I really do wish them well. I believe they are made for each other because they are the same type of people. I truly believe the best revenge is being happy and living an awesome life. And so far, that's exactly what I have been doing.
The situation also taught me about how things will eventually turn out just the way it is supposed to. I was never supposed to be in a marriage with my ex so it doesn't matter to me who he ends up with. I am cautious about how I treat this situation, because I know how I treat it, karma will pay me back several fold.
