Going and Coming. Does It Really?

My entire life, I've heard that old adage, "what goes around, comes around." Does it really? I'm starting to believe that the saying is a loser's lament, made up to give hope that someone would eventually pay for pain suffered.

I don't know what 'it' is, but I've never seen it 'going around' and certainly never bore witness to when it 'comes around.'

Is there anyone out there who can show proof that what Goes around really does come around? Inquiring minds want to know.

Errr...the only scenario I see that applying is if you cheated on someone and your next partner cheats on you. (It's never happened to me, I'm just speculating.)

Although, the cliche "love hurts" might be more applicable there.

No, I don't believe there is some equalizing force in the universe that punishes the guilty. There is pain in the world and it will find you regardless of what you did in the past.

I treated my boyfriend rather badly when I was 23, and the next partner I chose emotionally abused ME. So yes, 'it' definitely came back around...

Sometimes it takes a really long time and we're not there to see it--but losers have to have something to hold on to!
