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.
