oh thats my favourite saying.
"what comes around", because it usually does.
you just have to wait and be patient.
this is true, someone i know, well treated me a bit awful .
i was deeply upset at the time.
and ok it took 2 yr and 6 months.
but she has just apologised to me for her actions.
also many moons ago.
i was only a teenager, he bullied me terrible. names, pushing etc.
well a few yrs ago, being us both all grown up , he was working as a postman. on his delivery. i caught him totally unaware.
asked him if he remembered who i was and he said no.
i told him who i was and reminded him of his actions.
but you know what it came back to haunt him and he soon apologised.
dont you just love those moments.
;D sounds to me like a dream scenario, justean.
I experienced quiet a few of that kind but instead of apologises, i got to know that they are in bad situations. One used to hit me on the face, downstairs, each time i will walk by this cyber café, on my way to the 7/11 or my way to the park, or my way back home.
he just slap me on the face screaming "you fcing jew!" and i was a bit scared of walkign by, just 50 meters form my door.
Well, now its like that that there was some gangs dilema, recently, and someone drived my street, with people shooting form the windows, with automatic weapons, right in front of that cyber café, where they always hang day long and night long til 3 or 5 am... WOW, and he get shot in the leg! the leg that he had used to hit me with on the chest, very violently once, on a new years eve.
He always jumped on me by surprised, on hte side, and up of some stairs, and BAOM! a strong kick on my chest!
So now he isnt there anymore and will probably never come back. I think his parents must have forbid him to come here. he dont lives here at all, and i didnt knew him, and never knew why he was doing that.
I am not jew, but it doesnt change the situation. And he even said once that he knew i wasnt jew but he was saying it to can hit me, or the others will look at him down for beating a woman.. but if i was a jew, then it was alrigth! and even agood deed!
they were palestinians.
It doesnt always come in form of an apologise, but i know by now that they get in some trouble who make them htink and regret what they did in the past. I know of an ex who must bide his fingers till the day he die.
Oh and i also met soem people from long ago from when i was at university, and they were also bullying me there, but now see where they are.. not far.. it made me smile too. I crossed one in the stret a month ago and she was all so ashame and red on the face, and smiling to me all shy. ;D I just look at her while passing by it was an enjoying sight.
If i was to decide i wil rather had that the guy apologise to me than getting shot in the leg.. or for the police to dont be so scared of the bronx and coming to arrest him and forbid him to come here or emprison him for violence in the street. But its not me who decide of those things, and it looks like God wanted to shot him! LOL
I like when its peacefull and all can come along, looks like it is heading this way now.
2 nights before the shoting happened, i had dreamed of that, of a car driving slowly by, and shooting at them, so mad i was at this impossible situation and unable to do anything.
So when it happeend and I heard the noise out the window, and called the police and saw the news on the net, I just instinctivly knew it was him who had been hitted and wished for it. I was feeling very happpy. I dont know why.
Then there was pictures, and it was that guy
He had annoyed so many people through time. I heard from the cafés' owner downstairs, that he even slapped old ladies passing by, on the face!
I never understood harrassing others at school nor at work, and i have always defended those who were also physicaly. At work i made claims and build cases to defend people being bullied and laughed at, and to stop the craze. People dont like you for doing that at first, so you are not very popular with some, but those who smile at you are worth talking to, while the others are just abject in their mentality.
Thats how i saw things.
But we seems so many to agree on that , that i think that the bad guys are a minority, just more visible than we are, and do things who are shocking and hurting thats why it takes more place in our mind.
it takes 10 good actions, to erase one bad.
Thats how our memory function, so no big surprise that we are so much influenced and distressed by the negativity that is all around.
It was nice to talk with you Justean, it made me know you better and it feels good.
