Trust & doing what’s right

We’re taught from an early age that we’re supposed to do the right thing, to do what’s right that even if others don’t do what’s right for us.

And karma teaches us that we’re not only accountable for ourselves, but we’re accountable to others too and how we behave, therefore it’s important we do the right thing, even if others fail to do the right thing by us. We must do right by others, as we would want others to do right by us.

Doing what’s right is about trust. When someone puts their trust in us and we let them down, it says more about us, than it does about the people we let down. If we let someone down, it’s important we go back in, correct a wrong and put that right so that the trust can be regained. It’s up to us to work that out.

In my life I have always done right by others, but I have also lived a lifetime watching others do wrong, still expecting their world to come out right. Life doesn’t work like that. And even if we move on at some point that doesn’t mean we mustn’t go back in and right a wrong before we move on, or continue to do what’s right in the future.

Our lives and relationships would be much better off, individually we would all be much better off if only we worked on doing what’s right.

  1. Yes, I have watched a lot of bad things happen to very good people and then the greatest things happen to the worst kind of people, so I’m kind of biased.

    I didn’t grow up in a world where doing the right thing was that important. My parents just did whatever was best for them and pretty much a big ‘FU’ to everyone else. The most they proved to us was that life wasn’t fair and no matter what we did, it never would be.

    People usually make the easy choice, rather than doing the right thing when it comes down to it. It would be great if life was actually fair but I don’t see that ever happening, but I can make the best of my own life!

    1. Yes you can make the best of your own life. No one has to stay where they are, regardless of whether they have had that trust broken.

      I myself would have liked to believe in fairy tale endings. My site wouldn’t exist had I have got my own fairy tale ending, but we can go on to heal and make different choices. It’s up to us. I believe you can Randy.

  2. Yes, very true. I know too many people that if they took the time to cooperate and read this message it would greatly benefit them and their loved ones. It’s always up to the individual to practice this and not make excuses for their behavior and blame every one and the world but themselves.

    And by saying this I was NEVER meaning it towards Randy at all, the world’s population and society as a whole. No one in the history of humanity has ever had a fairy tale life, ever. Everyone is trying to get through their own lives on their own paths in their own way.

    We must show the world greatness and love from our own individuality.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. We all know what we should do to change or leave something the way it is, but that it takes some of us longer to achieve that, regardless of our starting point.

      It’s just not always easy. Sometimes we wait for the opportunities to happen and don’t quite get the signs, other times we don’t always have the tools to know how to change. These things are never easy.

      It is up to each and everyone of us to change our own lives, eventually.

  3. Yes, for sure. I’ve had the same struggles recently, but having few moments of hope and stating a positive as possible during my bouts of depression.

    Knowing it’ll be alright, because it usually always turns out that way any way.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. Yes, bouts of depression isn’t easy, but spirit knows you’re struggling and will always want to help you.

      There were times as a child that I would also negative self-talk and in times of stress now, I go back to that place and struggle to get myself out of it. My neurological issues make it worse.

      Back then of course I didn’t know about my neurological issues, but in order not to continue to sound and be negative, I used to try to keep myself busy, to take my mind off my negativity.

      But you’re right nothing happened and things did turn out okay. I honestly believe we are being protected, because underneath we’re good people, we’re just struggling to cope and that is always noted by spirit.
