So true. If you fall 7 times get up 8. It's not about what happens to us but how we react. If anyone knows this, I do. There are some people who actually enjoy knocking you down and kicking you when your hurting. Yes, these people are narcissists and sociopaths. We all create our own karma and that's how they choose to create theirs. I found out the hard way. It's more a show of their character and not yours. Hurt people go around hurting people. Some people's brains are wired differently but I still feel intuitively at an energetic level they are blocked and their brain is this way bc of pain, they resist to truly look more inward objectively at their self or they just wont. Self analysis is not easy for some. You can't be concerned for them, they can't be helped, they don't want it and they think they're superior anyway.
We all make mistakes but can you learn, can you actually grow from them, can you be a better version of yourself today? Can you look within and see how you could have done something differently? Maybe a "mistake" was a lesson. And yes those narcs and sp will think you "deserved it," when they went far out of their way to do something to you and think they did nothing wrong. Again whatever, their karma, you can't be concerned.
Some "lessons" are harsh and hard to comprehend, but you can get through it. People have gotten through so many terrible things. I heard this saying the other day, "shit helps fertilize flowers." It's true when you think of it. Resistance makes you grow muscle. Some resistance or "shit" or the shadow side of our humanity makes our soul evolve to an even deeper level of awareness than we ever knew we were capable of. Skimming the surface won't do it, it'll be an easier ride through life for sure but doesn't make you grow. Diamonds do not form without tremendous pressure. You can change everything today. That's all I want to be, a better version of myself and help others feel that way too. Doesn't matter what they say. Keep moving forward, the past is just the past. Life is fleeting, the present moment is what we have. Be a Phoenix rising from the ash. And get some great brows and lashes while you're at it, ha.
