Does Karma really exist or is it a myth?

I always thought it was just something to say. I hear people say it exists but I wonder if it’s just something people believe in to make them feel better about a certain situation. My ex cheated on me for 1 year of the 2 years we were together, lied about it, used a silly disagreement we had about cigars as her way out, then gets engaged to the guy not even two weeks after that argument. She left the state, job, kid, family everything to go “clear her head” when she was really leaving to build her life with him.
My friends say she will def get it back and probably double for walking out of her kid’s life (kid’s dad has always had custody anyway). But it’s been a year, actually longer than that. She’s happy, planning her wedding, planning her life with him just like I was planning my life with her when I was with her. My friends are adamant she’ll get it back, but I believe they’re just trying to lessen the blow for me. I don’t believe she will get it back. Anybody ever experience Karma before or has seen it come full circle? I’ve also heard some people say they’ve seen people get away with the things they do…so does it skip certain people or something?


  1. Karma isn’t usually instant and it’s about balance, not revenge. The energy you send out (positive or negative) you get back…could be in another lifetime though, or many years down the road.
    Yeah, I’ve experienced karma and it’s been kicking my azz for a decade because I was arrogant and stupid. It’s amazing how far out of balance you can get…

  2. I sort of believe in karma…if thats possible. When i played tennis, our opponent had to call our balls (if they were in or out). Sometimes, I knew my opponent was lying and usually on the next play they would miss the shot, hit the ball out, etc. In that case i believe in karma.
    I realize its difficult to relate a tennis match to life decisions. But in cases like yours i also believe in karma, but i don’t put that much into it, because i also believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe that you may not see the upside to what happened right now, but maybe someone better will come along for you. I mean you deserve someone a lot better than the person you described. Maybe the kids don’t need someone who is unstable and (maybe) would leave them anyways in their life.
    So, i guess my answer is yes and no. I believe in karma…but i also believe that everything happens for a reason. 🙂

  3. First off, I’m sorry to hear about your horrible ex. Being cheated on is one of the worst feelings in the world. It happened to me once and it really hurts, but you will find a better relationship!
    I promise you that Karma will come back to her and it will be a b*tch! She has done bad things and bad things will come back towards her. I agree with “babeheart”, karma isn’t revenge it is how your actions come back to you (both good and bad actions). But, she has done some REALLY bad things so you can imagine what will come back to her!
    It wouldn’t be so bad if she had left you and THEN gone for the other guy, but she cheated and thats wrong! Since she cheated, she will likely worry that her husband-to-be will cheat. He may not, but she will always worry about it and drive herself nuts with it. She may act jealous and chase him away by this behavior. She also walked out on her kid, and that is awful! There is no excuse! She has been selfish and done people wrong, and in turn it will come back to her… maybe not today, or tomorrow, but it will.
    If you want revenge, the best revenge you can have is to live well. It may sound silly but its true! Don’t let what she did to you put a damper on any future relationships. Good people get good things coming to them, so be a good person and things will work out for you! 🙂

  4. absolutely believe in karma and it’s not always going to be in the same form that they did to others. A lot of times it takes time probably longer than a year and remember, you are not in the thick of things appearances are decieving, she may LOOK happy and having a great life but she may not actually BE happy, there’s a difference. But you know when karma hits the worst? when the person that was hurt in a situation has totally and completely moved on. When they can’t go back to that person and plead their case crying and gain sympathy, that’s when it really hits them. Doesn’t sound like you’ve gotten to that point yet.
    Just to make a long story short…
    I was involved in a sort of love triangle thing and I knew I should have picked the new guy in my life instead of my ex who wanted me back, I picked my ex. I didn’t think I was hurting the new guy a whole lot but apparently I broke the poor guys heart, fast forward to about 3 years later my ex and i broke up for good, he’s (the guy I should have been with) got an amazing girlfriend who he’s over the moon and very happy with (and I’m happy for him) and I’m crushing over a guy that just got out of a long-term relationship not too long ago. And lately he (the one I’m crushing on) hasn’t been too nice to me…I think karma is biting me in the a*s right now

  5. Karma exists.
    I’d rather not tell the story because it’s way to long and involved for this forum, but I got my karma and it sucks!
    She’ll get hers, don’t worry about it.
    Also, what the first person said, it isn’t about revenge. Just get past what she did and move on with your life. I’m sorry that you had to go through all of this.
    Don’t dwell on what she is doing now though. She’s not worth it.
