Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)

Karma can be good, bad & ugly, but it all depends on the vibes you put out in the world. Here are the ways:

“You give respect, you get respect”. You have to respect the people in your atmosphere & they will respect you. If you disrespect them, be prepared for them to disrespect you.
Love everyone you come across, even your enemies. Killing someone’s ego with kindness might change them, but then again, society might rear it’s ugly head out of hiding.
Bless those who bless you in return (in layman's terms, pay ALL acts of kindness forward). You never know what someone’s going through unless you ask.

The bible says in Luke 6:27, Matthew 7:12, & Luke 6:31, (Luke 6:27) “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you”, (Matthew 7:12), “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”, & (Luke 6:31) “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”. You have two options & one choice & choose it wisely: abide by these 3 pieces of scripture & accept your blessings or feel his wrath when you disobey them.
