For the last few weeks I’ve been on a Big Brother fix, and as a result I’ve seen a lot of manipulation and interaction between people in a superficial circumstance and it got me thinking about the amount of manipulation that occurs in real life, without any real consideration for others.
Manipulation is a dirty business, and I try at all costs to avoid it to keep good karma, but sometimes we get caught in the crossfire, so to speak. For me, I had someone random contact me who was connected through another person in my life. I decided at that point, since for one it was out of the blue and I thought it to be none of their business, to not engage in interactions.
It wasn’t until recently that I found out through the grapevine that this person was caught trying to manipulate someone’s emotions and feelings that really affected other people’s friendships and relationships. I laughed a little bit to myself and patted myself on the back for several reasons. Firstly for not being involved because as a result no foul can be called on me. Secondly, it blew up in their face and since they aren’t in my life it doesn’t matter to me. Thirdly, because they made these poor decisions, they learned their lesson and got what was coming to them.
Karma really is a bitch sometimes.
