When Good Things Happen to Bad People
Kuuipo Asks: “Why do people who do and make bad choices get away with it, and most times at the expense of good people who feel punished?”
This is something I have pondered for years, and I’d be lying if I told you that I know the answer to your question. The truth is, sometimes good things happen to bad people, and crappy things happen to good people, and there doesn’t seem to be rhyme or reason behind it. What I have learned is that there is no “bribing of the universe.” I can be the best and kindest person and crap will still happen, people still die and some people remain selfish, inconsiderate, weak-minded, miserable, hateful and whiny jerks. It’s the nature of life.
The only thing we can do is focus on the things we truly have control over. Being a “good” person overall still attracts more good things than bad, and if you take a look at “bad” people, you’ll notice that their lives really don’t tend to be all that happy. Getting away with stuff has yet to produce true happiness and merely creates an illusion. Most jerks I know are anything but happy. They may have stuff, the title, the money, but if you take a closer look, it’s all superficial crap and those who they call “friends” couldn’t care less about them, because they’re just as shallow or screwed up as they are. Birds of a feather flock together, and tools attract other tools. So in the end, they aren’t really getting away with anything. And for those who keep getting hurt by tools, well, they’ll need to ask themselves why they’re staying around, instead of getting rid of them.

We all have choices and maybe your perceived punishment is for the lack of decision or action you are taking. If someone keeps hurting you and treats you badly, it is on you if you are the one who keeps on sticking around for more.
I really do believe that being kind, compassionate and caring attracts other such individuals. Maybe learn how to set your own boundaries and you may find that there are fewer “bad” people in your life, which translates into less drama, less pain and less anger over the perceived injustice. In the end, I feel we all do get what we deserve.
