That person you fell in love with whom deceived you, that’s a hammer.The guy who flipped you off in traffic today, he’s severe weather. Those stresses? Tiny cracks on the surface. Things that will beat away at something until it finally gives way to their pressures, without second thought to the erosion it leaves behind, the corrosion it inflicts.
In the center of all the synapses and veins, amongst the slabs of movement and an intestinal prison, lies stone. Made to persevere all of the elements and ensure the march carries on at a pace unseen since 330 BC. Some masonry remains in tact through avoidance, a lack in the ability to face problems head on under the assumption that shying from the pain will cause minor cracks, but they can be written off as weathering due to time. Other stories are made through tackling the troubles out to abrade it’s sturdy exterior.
Either way, it’s inside of us. The ability to fight or flee, to crack or totally crumble. There are rocks at the end of the journey, a little more beat up than others. The stories they can share at the finish line vary like the time it takes to pressurize a diamond, and in the end may there be an ear intrigued to hear them. Here’s to hoping it’s full of adventure, of heart break and doubt. With joy and elation from that same broken heart now mended and scarred. To the belief we can all find that strength within.
In my opinion, no. I think Karma can appear to be a force in nature, but really I think it’s more of a term designed to describe exactly what you’re doing to keep your life going a certain way. They say the only change comes from within, and I can’t help but think that’s exactly what supports the idea of Karma. If a thief hangs out with thieves, more than likely he will experience a theft. A liar whom hangs out with liars is going to be told a lie.
“Well Kenny, I may have cheated on past partners but I was completely faithful to my significant other in this case and they still cheated on me.”
Then you need to ask yourself, did you take the proper time to heal and make the changes necessary to not hang in the same company? Too often people rush into rebounds, or don’t allow enough time to truly get healthy, both emotionally and mentally. Chances are, unbeknownst to you, that you were attracted to this person based on qualities you yourself harbor. Not necessarily good ones either. You were blind to it at no fault of your own. Now you’re at a crossroad on whether to complete a transformation as a person, or to become jaded and resort back to your old ways but I think we all know that we get you nowhere.
Once a cheater, always a cheater isn’t the case. A cheater who does not heal what ails them, yes. A cheater who takes the time to reflect, address the wounds and begins to sew the sutures has all the chance in the World to find true, lasting love. However, if that person rushes into a new relationship, or seeks out someone as unhealthy as they are in a relationship, they are destined to experience the pain again.
