“What goes around comes back around”
In the past month I’ve heard that a lot. More than I wanted to hear it. Long story short, I was done wrong by so many people. Slander, false accusations, the whole nine yards. In the moment, the only thing I could think of was getting immediate revenge. I didn’t care how bad it was or what I had to do. All I knew is I wanted those people to know how bad they hurt not only me, but my family and friends.
I kept being told to sit back and let karma do it’s work. The thing was, I didn’t want karma, I wanted something to happen right then and there. I was angry, livid, outraged that people would go out of their way to give other’s such a bad name and accuse them of things that never happened. I didn’t understand why people who are out of high school, would want to start drama. My dad would always tell me “There’s going to be drama everywhere you go Abby. There’s no avoiding it.” I thought he was wrong. For the longest time I thought he was wrong and I was right. I mean, it has to disappear at some point right? You can’t go your entire life wanting to make other’s lives miserable. You gotta grow up at some point. Knowing what I know now, I know he’s 100% right. It’s absolutely everywhere. All ages. All people. In politics, high school, work areas, family. There’s some type of drama everywhere.
I’ve learned there’s two things you can do in that situation. You can either be the bigger person, ignore it and let karma do its thing, or you can stoop to their level and get revenge yourself. In the moment, while all of this was happening, I wanted to get revenge. I wanted to hurt them just like they hurt me. Looking back, I’m glad I didn’t. I listened. I let them keep running their mouths about my friends, my family and myself. Everybody knew about it. Everybody thought of me differently. Everybody had a new opinion of me that wasn’t true. It hurt me a lot because I always try to be the best person I can be. I try to help everybody. I would help everybody before I would help myself. That’s just the kind of person I am and I wouldn’t change that for anything. So hearing things about myself that isn’t who I am was pretty hurtful. I was being portrayed as a terrible person and I didn’t want to stand for it.
After a week or so, I started to put all of my trust in God that he knew what was best for me. He knew what was going on and He was going to help me out of it. He would guide me to the right path, and He wouldn’t let anybody get away with what they did. I put all of my trust into God and told everybody who was involved to do the same. He is more powerful than us and only He knew the outcome of this.
About a month later, just a few days ago actually, we got our karma. Let me tell you, I’m glad I let karma do its job and I’m glad I waited for it. It was very well deserved and now I get to sit back and watch the universe be on my side now. There’s not much I can complain about now. I’m happy, I’m healthy, I’m following my passion and writing everyday, I’m in a very good spot in life and I couldn’t be more thankful. I have the greatest friends and family I could ever ask for. Karma doesn’t go easy on anybody.
It’s the beginning of September, only a few more months left of the year. This year, the past few months in general, I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned how cruel people can be and how cruel the world can be. Fall is my favorite time of the year, hands down. I love everything about it. Now that I’ve gotten my karma and it’s still happening, I think I’ll really be able to enjoy the end of this year. The truth always comes out. The bad people will always be exposed. I am a firm believer in karma. If you give the world good, the wold will give you good back. On the other hand, if you give the world negativity, that’s what you’ll get in return. You reap what you sow. Stay true to yourself and love yourself.
