As we get older the “majority” of people become more conscious of their actions, words, and the way they behave. Life lessons on the whole, show that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
We treat someone bad? Well someone will treat us bad!
We do good things, with a genuine and caring heart. Then good things will be returned to us.
We work hard at our career or hobby, we will reap the rewards.
We look after our mind, body and soul. We will spiritually evolve and in time, find true-inner happiness.
But sometimes we can really try our best, and life doesn’t deliver.
We can sometimes try our very hardest in our job. Only to be told it is not good enough.
We can treat people nice and do our best by them, but they choose to treat us badly.
We can try to have a positive outlook in life, but challenging and heartbreaking things are sent our way.
It is easy to get bogged down when life isn’t all rosy.
But it is at this point where I feel this quote:
“Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”
is most significant.
The reaction is not always going to be what we expected, or a reaction we particularly like, but this is the reaction we have been given, and it is our choice to flip it on its head learn something from it – and make it into a positive.
Someone tells us, our hard work was no good? Question it? Don’t feel deflated, or get upset, push to find out how we could have done it better. Then let’s do better.
Someone treats us bad? Address it. If they don’t do it again, then great we will see the relationship flourish and grow.
If they continue to hurt us and disrespect us then it is time to move on, and end the relationship or friendship. Easier said than done yes, but the great thing about being a grown-up is we get to chose who we spend our time with. This should be with the people who lift us – not drain us.
Challenging and heartbreaking events land at our door, we shouldn’t be afraid to cry, scream or mourn.
But we should try and cling onto, and focus on every inch of the good in life.
It is there, and going through dark times, even though it doesn’t seem like at the time.
It makes us stronger.
It helps us to really appreciate and savour the glorious and happy times that little bit more.
No rain, no flowers.
As the old saying goes.
So yes, what comes around goes around. It may not always be what we expected or what we deserve.
But either way, we can learn and take something positive and beneficial from everything life throws our way – good or bad.
