This tale of karmic retribution is a fantastic read and comes to us from Reddit. A woman explains how their “friend” is losing everything, and they feel happy about it.
A New Friendship
Our storyteller, a 26-year-old woman, had a 24-year-old guy as a friend who was going through a tough time when they met less than two years ago.
A Tough Time
He had lost his house, was on the brink of losing his wife and daughter, and had no job, income, education, or friends.
They Hit It Off
The mutual friend who introduced them thought they would get along because of their similar interests in sports, music, and games, among other things.
And they did hit it off pretty fast and became good friends.
A Good Friend
She tried to help him in any way she could. She helped him get a job and a side hustle that could earn him a few extra bucks.
On His Foot Meaning
In no time, he was able to afford a simple house to live in, and things were starting to look up for him.
His wife was happier, and his daughter even got an art kit as a present and kept on drawing every day!
A Rude Guy
However, her new buddy had a pretty major flaw – he was a really rude guy.
He Can Flip
If you said something he didn’t like, even if it was true, he’d get mad and throw insults at you.
But since he never acted that way toward the original poster (OP), she didn’t try and think too much of it.
An Argument Gets Nasty
Fast forward to last month, the mutual friend who introduced OP and her new friend got into a fight with him over something trivial that had something to do with an online game.
Her new friend went crazy over the matter and almost threw fists at their mutual friend!
Losing Her Temper
As soon as OP saw that, she lost her temper and gave him a few harsh words, which made him also get mad at her!
She told him that he shouldn’t treat people that way and that if he kept playing the victim and searching for someone to blame for his mistakes, he would end up alone.
Harsh words, but sometimes people need tough love!
He Spread Rumors About Her
But as the days went on, he started saying nasty things to OP and her family, friends, and co-workers.
She had to clear the rumors he created about her selling her body to her boss to get a promotion.
Setting the Record Straight
She had to tell her family that she had never posted nude photos online or hooked up with someone for some quick cash!
Anxiety and Fear
She had to deal with her increasing anxiety and fear of him creating any more rumors about her.
He was making her home and work life a living hell.
Finally Lost His Job
Today, she got the news that he had finally lost his job due to how he had been treating everyone around him these days!
The very same job that OP got him.
Now, he only has one friend left by his side; all the rest had cut off contact with him due to his rudeness.
His wife? Well, she filed for divorce and custody of their daughter. He has little to no money left to pay his bills as he already has a warning that he’s in his last week of the side hustle.
The Last Laugh
The only friend he had left was OP. He reached out to OP for help to try and give him a better life once again.
However, all she could do was laugh. She didn’t try to get revenge or do anything to ruin his life – he managed to do that on his own.
She did nothing but block him as soon as he tried to ruin her life.
A Warm Feeling Inside
For the first time in a long time, OP felt a warm fuzzy feeling in her chest – she was happy about what had happened.
She didn’t feel even the slightest hint of guilt. Karma had finally caught up to him, and he was getting what was coming to him.
You Don’t Need Toxic Friends
OP felt better after cutting ties with her toxic friend, and she didn’t regret it one bit. She knew that sometimes, people bring their misfortunes upon themselves, and she was not responsible for saving them from the consequences of their actions.
In the end, OP realized that sometimes, letting go of toxic people in our lives is the best thing we can do for ourselves. It may be hard at first, but it’s essential for our own well-being and happiness.
