People think of karma as some unfathomable energy that will blindside you when you least expect it, but it’s really the current sum of all the energy you’ve dealt and experienced. That actively influences your actions and feelings. You can only balance karma with accountability. The karma you will experience from mistreating someone isn’t the universe lashing out on you in order to avenge them. It’s your lack of empathy, inability to compromise/honor other POVS, your refusal to make amends, etc. That’ll make future things, people, goals unreachable.
