I am not a spiritual person. I don't believe in or fear God. I'm not one to believe in reincarnation. I have a strong belief that when we die, that's it. Lights out for good and you are either ash or worm food. But that's just me, and I certainly wouldn't discredit anyone's belief about what goes on when you say goodnight Vienna for the last time. But the one thing I do believe in is karma. I believe that what goes around comes around, and that you need to treat everyone with at least a modicum of respect, be friendly, and most of all, love each other and treat everyone how you would like to be treated.

Of more recent times, I've seen first hand what it is like when people ignore this, when people treat their friends and their families and all of their loved ones like a fresh, warm dog egg. Unsurprisingly, these people soon find themselves on the end of a severe roasting, seemingly unaware of what they have done to receive such treatment. All I can say in this instance is that I hope that karma truly hurts. Treating someone with no respect, doing what you can to hurt someone or just going out of your way to make someone else feel like they don't deserve anything in life is no way to live. I've lived on both ends of the scale, I've been both hurt and I've done the hurting, and I want to take a moment now just to apologise for what went on.

At the end of the day, what matters more? Being so abusive to someone that you get a momentary kick and it makes you feel better? Or taking whatever it is that offended you on the chin and just moving on with your life? At the end of the day, I believe that what matters more is the relationships matter more to you than what people have to say about you. I like to think I'm relatively thick skinned, that the smallest of moments where people try their best to offend me just don't hit me. But sometimes those blows are way below the belt. So sometimes it is a lot easier to retort and hit back. That brings us neatly back to the start. If you decide to fight back, you need to look over your shoulder, because truly, karma can be a real bitch.
