So we all know the satisfaction of getting back at someone who did us wrong. We feel justified and even glad that we have hurt the other person. But who did we really hurt? I want to share a little (true) story about a wife whose husband was cheating on her with one of their friends. On Valentines Night she had to work and hubby was at home babysitting.
The next morning she went to the “other” woman and apologized for thinking that the woman was having an affair with her husband, explaining how she had followed him the night before and he was with a blond ( as opposed to the brunette in her face.) Satisfied because it was “one for the good guys” it was years before she realized that she had made a mistake. Why didn’t she let her scumbag friend run off with her scumbag husband and that be the end of it. Instead she stayed and suffered for years after that.
So next time you think you are the smarter one and that all your bad behavior is justified by someone else’s bad behavior. Remember that anything you do to someone else will come back to you. You may not realize it at the time and it may take years or even lifetimes but it will haunt you like a bad smell. Karma is a bitch!
