Why I Choose Forgiveness Over Karma


In our day to day lives, we have our good days and some, if not many, bad days too. The events and consequences leading unto it, might tend to affect our moods and thought processes, consequently controlling our actions as well. We all want the best for ourselves, and we don’t want others to get in the way of that, or do anything to potentially stunt our growth.

But sadly, this is life and we deal with people who are going to be mean, who are going to lie and cheat life like it’s a game. For most honest folk, we do what we have to do to survive, but “survival of the fittest” cannot be taken as an excuse to hurt the other, physically or emotionally, even if it is knowingly or unknowingly done. Our words and actions speak for us and they stand for who we are.

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Whatever situation you might be going through, it’s better not to hurt others even to get it off our chest and face the impending karma that awaits us, too. Even if someone made a mistake, forgiving them after the mistake is acknowledged is better than nurturing that small grudge into a black hole of revenge.

You hate seeing yourself get hurt, so does everyone else. You may be able to win a battle, but it takes more than one victory to win a war, and you can’t always do it on your own without wasting precious time and energy that could be spent doing something else more productive and self-sufficient. Some may retaliate and some won’t. But that does not make it less of what it is. Even without your consent, the universe is programmed to allow justice for all. This way it ensures that people don’t go without the punishment they deserve. We have laws to do away with real crimes, and we have karma for smaller crimes and yes, hurting a person emotionally is also a crime against humanity.

Remember the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Using this as a motto for all your words and actions will turn the world into a better place for all.

“The bold and the innocent both get what they deserve from their offenders: one with courage and the other with karma”
