I recently had a discussion with a friend about “Karma.” She expressed that she believed that as she did good things that good things would happen to her.
I said, I have never seen Karma work that way in my life. I have done kind, good things and have experienced horror, violence and abuse and some serious ingratitude from others.
It’s not an eye for an eye kind of thing for me.
How I view Karma is that as I heal from the experiences that others perpetrated on me, I become a better person.
This allows me to grow and experience different and better experiences than I would have if I had not been compelled to grow because of the trauma.
In this way, I have experienced good from every hateful, horrifying, abusive experience in my life.
This is my hope for you—Heal.
