I think I’ve finally had it, completely. For the better part of my adult life I have been on the fence about religion, or more importantly, a higher power. I think religion in and of itself is full of shit, but as far as there being a God, or a supreme being, I really don’t know. I mean really, nobody knows for sure. Having faith and believing are not knowing, and don’t ever confuse them.
So I’ve decided that I was going to believe in Karma. I know most religions believe in some form of Karma, but I’m going with it specifically as my religion. I believe in Karma because I’ve seen it work a million times, for good and for bad. Some people call them miracles, but they probably still believe in the Easter bunny, because they probably still celebrate Easter.
The problem is, while Karma works, sometimes it can take a little too long to work. And it would seem more often than not, when it does work, people don’t notice.
“Why do bad things keep happening to me?!”
That’s the only sign you’re going to get, asshole.
Lately, maybe for the last year, I’ve gotten to the point where I’m sick of waiting on Karma. I’m sick of waiting for people to start doing good. I’m sick of waiting.
What I’m really fucking sick of, is doing as much right and good as I can, while everybody else does whatever the fuck they want and get away with it.
Mostly, I’m talking about driving. I could go on more tangents, but we’ll leave it here for now.
Basically, what it boils down to is, if you change how you drive when a cop is nearby, then you’re a shitty driver all of the rest of the time. Cutting people off, not using turn signals, driving way too fast… you’re an asshole and a shitty driver. Because you know what you’re doing, especially if you change what you’re doing when you see a cop. If you’re that cognizant about how you’re driving to know that you’d get a ticket if pulled over, then you’re breaking the law and you’re driving wrong ON PURPOSE. Making you an asshole.
And that’s what I’m fucking sick of. I’m sick of driving the speed limit, I’m sick of using my turn signals, and I’m super fucking sick of being a courteous driver when nobody else is. I’m sick of doing right and getting nothing but shit on by everybody else who doesn’t give a fuck.
