A real confession

Occasionally I’ve caught myself having very uncharitable thoughts about a few people who are so judgmental about other people who haven’t lived the privileged life that they have. People I know very well in fact. Sometimes I’ve privately wished just a wee little bit of hardship on them. Like they actually get sick with a real illness that causes them to not be able to to work, for example. Or that they lose a whack of money in investments because of a sudden fall in the markets. I know it’s not good to wish bad things on other people, but sometimes I’d just like life to smack them upside the head to wipe that self-congratulatory smirk off of their faces for just a bit.

I know the feeling…

But I always remind myself with this saying…
Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

Well, everyone experiences loss eventually. Parents and friends. Does that make you feel better?

Is that you’ve already actively sabotaged these people, rather than simply wishing harm on them.

I'm a true believer in karma. No need to wish bad thoughts. Their time will come. It's a self-induced thing.

For what you wish for, sometimes it comes back to bite you in the ass.

Have you heard of the concept of projection? It’s when you project your own feelings onto someone else because in fact it’s you who would do that. I personally don’t operate that way so no, I haven’t done anything to sabotage them. The thought is frankly abhorrent and ridiculous to me. But you do you.

Forgiving those who do me wrong is the challenge I deal with too. Best I can see this planet Earth dimension is a school for the developmentally slow but I can honestly say there are things I used to do that I don't do anymore, and there are things I used to think, but although I still too often think them, I'm learning to moderate my physical reactions.

If you're a true believer of Karma ( कर्म ), you must be a Hindu or a Buddhist and believe in reincarnation or the cycle of rebirths?

How do you know they haven’t lived without pain? Some people may seem privileged and were sexually abused as children and live with deep shame. I’m not sure how well you know them…but maybe you shouldn’t wish ill on them? You sound pretty judgemental in your confession about judgemental ppl…and frankly, evil.
