I wish you well


Is it natural to wish that good things happen to good people and bad things happen to bad people?

That would be very true of big bad things, like committing a crime. We have strong consequences to breaking the law that hopefully reflect the severity of the breach of law. Big good things, it’s not so clear. If someone lives selflessly serving others then the reward is internal and personal. Material goodness must come as a gift, it does not come naturally in this situation. But what we hope is that the person who does good big things has a good, happy life.

Now consider the everyday good and bad things. I mean things like being friendly or stealing stationary. In addition, consider if generally (i.e. most of the time) a person is good or bad when he or she interacts with others, such as with positivity and enthusiasm v’s negativity and nastiness. Or perhaps that person is selective as to where niceness goes- that cannot be a good trait either.

In the everyday good case, if you are friendly and positive and enthusiastic… that’s really lovely, I wish you well, I wish you many happy successes.

On the other hand, if you are everyday negative, nasty, selectively nice and steal stuff without asking… I don’t mind if you struggle a bit and maybe fall over thin air and cry and briefly think you have no friends.

Is this natural or unforgiving? Is it also nasty?

Take this one step further. Consider two exes. A good ex and a bad ex. You can use your imagination to think why each one may have earned their category.

Is it natural to be happy that a good ex is happy in life after you, while gaining some deep justification or personal cleansing when a bad ex is having a hard time at life?

I’m sure you are a nice person if you’re reading my blog and got to this point of this post… I wish you well 🙂

I'm a 41 year old teacher, single and have one adult son. I'm currently finding a new me and new style of living while learning to manage chronic illness. In short, my mind is over active and my body can't keep up. I love art, retro and vintage stuff, eclectic fashion and travelling anywhere and everywhere. I often also get all caught up in social justice issues, my fave being marriage equality, until it happens here in Aus. Bucket list enabled, hold on tight.

  1. This is also another very good post, I hope I qualify as a nice person. I have found that only heartache comes from wishing for anything but the best in life. I am glad that I have figured this out. I just recenly lost a friend over a silly thing and while I am hurt I still with that person the best. May I use your blog as part of one I am working on about the same subject. I feel all we can do, after a negative experiance is to chose the most postive feelings and also just offer our kindness. If we, espiecially those of us who deal with daily stuggles with chronic illness and pain. We don’t have room in our lives to wish more negativity in our lives. I truly believe I have found a like minded person very quickly here on this blogging communities. Do I have your premission to use your blog in mine? It might take me a week to get this blog out, but this fits perfectly with what point I wish to make.
