When is the search for justice worth the trauma of reliving a nightmare? To some it might be a simple answer of “always”. To others the thought of dragging out a nasty scenario just seems like a waste of time. To those people, they know that somewhere along the line karma is going to do the job for them. Time is an entity continually moving and changing. Regardless of the fact we have the same (apparent) 24 hours in every day and we have a number of days per week etc... time is something that moves whether we are aware or not. I would be very sad to think that I woke up one day and that time had slipped away so quickly whilst I was still hell bent on revenge over a perceived wrongdoing. Our perception will dictate how we see something and our conditioning will tell us how to react. Some people will simply take it on the chin and move on to bigger and better situations and opportunities whilst others will languish in court cases and fighting over something which might have been avoided if they hadn’t been so unaware in the first place. Mistakes, as I wrote the other day, are an important part of our lives and they are made more powerful by how we learn from them. Could it not be that we would be better off learning from the mistake of misjudging someone or a situation? Perhaps if we did that we would then recognise when the next shyster came our way, instead of falling once again because we are still buried in the past.
The old “be careful what you wish for” phrase rings rather loudly on this issue. The next time someone does you wrong, take a breather and a step back. Then when you are ready, take a look at what it really is. Think of ways to deal better with that situation if it ever arises again. Sometimes when we do that, the problems and hurt become insignificant to all that we have and all that we are.
