I've always believed in Karma. I truly think that, "What goes around, comes around" and when all is said and done; we reap what we sow.
I strive to live an honorable life. I am not perfect. Not by a long shot. I do, however, try to act with kindness. I take the feelings of others into account in everything I do or say. I always make every attempt to do the right thing. I am never intentionally mean spirited.
I believe I am a good person.
Most people I cross paths with seem to be, as well. But there are a few; the selfish, self-centered few, that slowly chip away at the goodness. They can suck the life right out of you. Time and time again they prove to only care about their happiness. What makes their life easier. They don't seem to understand the dynamic that is give and take. They have only mastered the take.
I try to get past it. I try to let go. I give them chance after chance after chance. And just when I begin to see some light, they pull the rug out from under my feet, yet again.
They infuriate me with their sense of entitlement. They frown down from their pedestals as though everyone in their life is beneath them. Time and time again they exhibit disrespect and thoughtlessness.
So, why is it that Karma has given me the shaft while bestowing the best of everything on these few? I don't wish harm on anyone, but why is their Karma not coming back to bite them in the ass? Why does the balance seem to be a askew and why must the good around them continue to tolerate their inconsiderate behavior?
How much must be endured? Tell me; when is enough, enough?
