    Have you been with someone who treated you poorly, or have you treated someone poorly and then had karma affect you full circle? I saw this on Oprah's final show, and it very much resonated with me, and believe it is quite true. I've experienced this many times from those who have wronged me.. I wanted to share it.

    Thx for posting!

    This is very "Law of Attraction" by the way. But Oprah's been known as a follower. icon_smile.gif

    I like to think that this thought process guides me everyday of my life. It was taught and practiced by my parents who dutifully passed it on to all of their children. BELIEVING in this will set you free.

    I guess it affects me because I'm a terrible person and have barely any friends.

    Yeah, you DO have a pretty bad reputation...at least on RJ. But that doesn't mean you couldn't make amends and turn that around.

    it's true and part of it is conscious

    sometimes it's hard for me to accept good things because often things come with strings. it can be hard to accept at face value that someone is simply being kind to you. i've had my share of negative experiences and i don't stick around to be abused, but i've walked away from it rather than hit back. you should only lash out in true defense, not revenge. because i didn't lash out or exercise whatever power i could have, i felt better for it. that person can find someone else to teach them their lesson and give them the assbeating they might deserve. and when someone truly gives me something good in life that i might not feel i deserve directly from them, it is much easier to accept.

    Perhaps the Law of Attraction, but i've really come to believe that there is karma, and what does goes around comes around.. or vice-versa. There's always a time and place, but it happens. Those who have wronged me always have been served their dues sooner or later, and it always comes back to let me know... i always find out, smile, and feel at peace. sick eh? icon_smile.gif

    I like Andrew...
    I think you guys just don't get him. I'm not saying I do but at least I appreciate his caustic sarcasm.

    Ain't nothing wrong with it. The most important thing is that you felt at peace. icon_smile.gif

    Yes I've experienced karma.

    I'll try to say this sweetly.

    the thing about toxic people is that they tend to not be great a self care on some level. if they were, they wouldn't have so much hate in them. so they treat themselves poorly and others the same. the end result of this is that they will decay in on themselves if they don't change. basically, they rot from their own negativity.

    tangent expressions:

    "Hanging onto resentment is like letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head. "


    (Edit to add: "Also, hanging onto a resentment is like drinking poison and then waiting for the other person to die."

    I experienced this when I was really young. I was a dumb shit who'd always talk smack about people behind their backs. Man did that ever come back to bite me in the ass. In the longer run it changed my outlook quite a bit. I learned of the rewards of being genuine and nice with people around me.

    You are NOT a terrible person! You just have a terrible main pic. (OK, OK, I can't keep myself from being silly)

    Let me tell you a story: all my life I've had bad luck (Karma if you like). If something can go wrong for me, it will. Many years ago I began to call it my "negative lottery."

    A "positive lottery" is when you win something good, against difficult odds. Like an actual lottery itself, or any of the other random occurrences in life that are either good for us, or bad for us, largely based on chance.

    But the lottery I always win is the negative one. If the government screws up somebody's records, a 1-in-50,000 chance, it'll be mine. If an important letter gets lost by the Postal Service, it'll be mine. If a doctor's waiting room overlooks a patient's appointment, and leaves him waiting for 2 hours, it'll be mine. But you think I'll ever win the real lottery, or even a door prize? No way!

    So I just laugh and take it in stride. If there is a God apparently he gets His jollies by playing jokes on me, a modern day Job. My life is like defensive driving in a car: I anticipate the curves I'm thrown, and expect to deal with them. My life is constructed of redundancies & backups, because I always need them. Nothing EVER goes as I planned, and certainly not to my advantage.

    But I don't interpret this to mean I'm a terrible person. Just an unlucky one. And I draw strength from overcoming one obstacle & setback after another. I'm never better than when I'm dealing with adversity. In a calmer life I'd probably die of boredom.

    As for friends, I couldn't say, not knowing you. You WON'T have friends if you THINK you're a terrible person. I don't think I'm terribly terrible, and I have tons of friends. You might, as we used to say in the Army, need to have your head screwed on a little tighter, and then you'll have all the friends you can handle. And start by not calling yourself a terrible person.

    You are NOT a terrible person! You just have a terrible main pic. (OK, OK, I can't keep myself from being silly)

    Let me tell you a story: [long story shortened so i'm not quoting a wall of text]

    As for friends, I couldn't say, not knowing you. You WON'T have friends if you THINK you're a terrible person. I don't think I'm terribly terrible, and I have tons of friends. You might, as we used to say in the Army, need to have your head screwed on a little tighter, and then you'll have all the friends you can handle. And start by not calling yourself a terrible person.

    I'm a difficult person to be friends with.
    I put up with very little bullshit - if you are the type of person who uses people or does stupid shit on the regular I will not want to be around you. Unfortunately that's about half (or more) of the people my age that I meet.

    I don't drink like 99% of people my age so I don't go out and get drunk on weekends, which is "respected" by a lot of people but considerably lame because nobody else wants to stay in and watch movies or play video games.

    My depression and anxiety affect me a lot which means I can get in moods where I won't really leave my room for like, a full week. A lot of people don't really "get" me (i know that sounds so angsty) and like.. I don't really feel strong connections with most people.


    and I'm a terrible person because:

    I have very offensive taste in humour. (this also is something that people usually dislike about me)
    Examples:

    I steal from the local thrift store because it's SO EASY and they have such awesome stuff usually and I have no money.
