Life is like a cannon that will keep battering the walls of your existence over and over again. The thing that separates the weak and the strong is the choice to be battered or to win.
There will be situations where you will be overwhelmed by the feelings the moment presents to you. You will feel betrayed and bested by people who are not half the human being you are. You will feel defeated and lost. But then again, the choice is yours; to be battered or not.
Real, strong people let fate do its job. This is simply because sometimes justice might just be out of your reach in life. If you are wise enough, you would do the same too.
“Remember, what you do now will come back to you in the future. Life has a funny way of making you deal with what you make others go through.”
Here are five reasons why karma is the best partner-in-crime you can have.
1. There are some battles you just can’t win and it’s better to let go
Life will present you with situations in which you just can’t do anything about things. And it’s really okay to let things go with grace. Everything is not meant for everyone, especially not right then.
You would be wise to pick your own battles. These grudges and anxieties would just bind you down.
The great Indian sage, Swami Vivekananda had a Sanskrit catchphrase to describe life: “Charaibeti”. It literally means, “Move forward”. Because, at the end of the day, that’s the direction you should be looking towards.

2. Let karma take care of it so that you don’t get your hands dirty
“No need for revenge. Just sit back and wait. Those who hurt you eventually screw up themselves and if you are lucky, God will let you watch.”
Sometimes there are some obnoxious individuals that might vex you to the extent of you wanting to physically assault them. What you should do: DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
There is no bravery in marring your own reputation which probably took years and a lot of hard work to build. Let the grudge go, grit your teeth and work your way through life.
Do not worry, the Universe might be unfair, but everyone gets their desserts. Your hard work will get rewarded and the person who wronged you will get their punishment. You won’t even have to worry about that.
3. It is much more satisfying when you see karma take care of it
Like the proverbial KFC tagline, watching your nemesis getting their share of the dirt courtesy fate, is “finger licking good.”
Also it was the great Dr Hannibal Lecter who had very eloquently put: “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”
What is ever so satisfying as seeing your foe being cut down by fate just when things were going smoothly for him? The answer is nothing. Absolutely nothing.
4. Consequences of avenging yourself could be very dire sometimes
“Keep calm and let karma finish it.”
Given the situation and who you want to avenge yourself on, you might lose your job, be imprisoned or put yourself in mortal danger. What we mean is, sometimes, it is just unnecessary or just plain dangerous.
What do you do when you can’t get something done? Get help. Think of letting go along those lines; think of it as getting help from someone whose very job description is taking revenge for people who can’t get it done by themselves. Bide your time, work hard and be dedicated towards a goal. Realize that forward is where you have to go, and one day, you will definitely get your revenge.
Remember, even Al Capone had to go to jail despite paying off every single judge and jury who tried to try him in court.
5. The best revenge is living happy and well
“The best revenge is always to just happily move on and let karma do the rest.”
Live well and be happy, work harder than your peers and love what you do. Seeing someone you wrong succeed and be happy is one of the worst feelings ever. Make sure your nemesis feels that way.
Make them feel insignificant and guilty. The guilt is enough to crush the strongest, and they are nothing in comparison.
