Life Is An Echo; What You Send Out Comes Back!

life is an echo

Life is an echo; what you send out comes back. What you experience today is the consequence of yesterday and tomorrow results depend on what you do today.

What you do in life, echoes in everlastings so be mindful how you live each day. Those who live to do what’s right will harvest everlasting life. While the one who chooses to do wrong will reap many perpetual sorrowful days.

Moreover, most of you know the Chinese Proverb, “Life is an echo. What you send out comes back,” the saying is a legitimate statement, yet, most of you live your lives as if the meaning of this quote is just something you should forget or like you don’t believe this saying to be true.

Some might not believe life is an echo, except, if they walk a mile in another man’s shoes, they would remember the Golden Rule of life. The practice where you treat another, the way you would want to be treated. It’s a saying that goes far beyond words simply being said; it’s a very simple adage everybody should believe and live.

Do you believe the Golden Rule of life to be true? No one wants to be placed in an unfavorable situation where life echoes the circumstances of their own doing. As it’s hard to reap what you sow when you place yourself in an unfortunate position.

When we are forced to deal with the echo of life and it seems too much, a person will like any opportunity to make their lives a little easier. To do such you need to start giving the world the best you have and before you know it, the good you share will all come back to you.

Your main focus should be to treat others as you want to be treated. Yet numerous individuals fail to do so and there are two main reasons why. Many don’t treat others the way they want to be treated because of number one: many are lovers of themselves and fail to care for another. Two: they are selfish, and allow themselves to be interested in their well-being only.

There’s a famous saying from Lyndon Johnson that says, “If we are to live together in peace, we must come to know each other better.” If we selfish and lovers of our self, is this fair to the other person who involves? No, remember life is like an echo, what we send out comes back and what you reap you will sow.

You don’t have a right to be upset when life echo back to you what you put out to someone else. I had to learn this wisdom first hand myself. And hear me when I say I put out a lot of good more than wrong, still, it was hard for me to maintain or continue living life when this one wrong return back to me.

Five years ago, I walked away from a relationship I share with my sister, we were close, two peas in a pot, we talked about any and everything and help each other dealt with life’s challenges. We shared everything and we had each other back, when she was weak, I was strong and vice versa.

This particular time we both were going through at the same times and we both were weak. My sister was taking her problem out on me and saying mean things to me. We argue a lot and I was tired of her taking her frustration out on me.

I tried talking to her and telling her she needs to consider my feeling and give me a little more appreciation as I was respecting her. She continued her rage, throwing out words that cut through the soul and one day we encounter a very fiery conversation and she said words to me in a heated moment that I felt was unforgivable.

When she saw how hurt I was she apologized to me, I walked away. She tried calling I wouldn’t answer my phone. She even came to my house and tried talking to me, I ask her out and we didn’t speak on my part for two years.

Although what she said was not something, I would have ever said to her, I was wrong to take the words so personal and reject her from my life. Two years ago, I flat hit rock bottom and turn to a loved one in my family for help. It was another bad decision I made.

My sister, I walked away from heard of the hard times I fell upon and reach out to me. It was not easy for me to hear from her during the most challenging times of my life, but I did. I’m sure the person that was not doing right by me told her and that’s okay too, because maybe they mean it in a bad way, it turns out to be for my good.


We were able to salvage two years of past hurt to put behind us and to wipe the sled clean and move forward. I am happy she reached out to me because I never would have contacted her and I missed her dearly. When she shared with me how unhappy and miserable, she was without me, it made me so sorry I ever act in such a foolish way.

Most of all for her to share with me, she knew it was wrong of her to say what she said out of anger and I was wrong to walk away from a bond we share since we grew up as little girls. She was hurting and wishing it was something she could have done differently so we never lost two years hurt me to the depths of my soul.

I shared this experience to say, we should be careful what we say and how we treat another as words are powerful and once, they come out the mouth they cannot be taken back. The way you treat another can affect them and words have a way of destroying everything from relationships to people’s lives. Especially in a situation where the person you throwing harsh words to not strong enough to take them.

I had a right to demand she calm down and choose better words, except, I should have handled things better. The way a person manages a situation can contribute to the outcome. Walking away from her the way I did was not the best end and I feel because I handle things that way as I continue to live life it echoes in a situation I didn’t desire.
