I believe what goes around comes around
“I believe what goes around comes around.” This can be seen as a positive aspect and as a negative aspect. To me this means if you talk bad about something or somebody it will eventually come right back to you. What goes around comes around is karma. What you do or say today will come back to you in the future.
A couple of years ago, I caught myself talking about another peer to my friend, the person I was talking about found out and started a rumor about me. I should’ve seen it coming. I felt bad about the choice I had made.
The positive thing about what goes around comes around is that if you say something nice to someone, they will return the compliment back. I always feel better when people compliment me, even the smallest things that some people don’t think matters.
I have talked bad about people and so has everyone else. I guarantee more than half of the time it will come back at you. It isn’t nice, but everyone does it. If you don’t want people talking about you then don’t talk about them. The mature thing to do is if you hear something that someone said about you, don’t get mad and don’t talk about them. Just laugh it off. The worst thing you can do is talk about them; two wrongs don’t make a right. It might feel better to talk about them but it just makes everything worse. Just forget about it and don’t bring it up to the person who said it because they want you to be mad, their goal is for you to be mad, so don’t show it. “You get what you give; our actions are passed on until they return to us. Wise folks have learned that you will eventually get what you give.”
This I believe, what goes around comes around. Don’t act surprised when it comes back to you because your lesson will soon be learned.
