“Every cause has its effect; Every effect has its cause; Everything happens according to law”

Even with good intentions the effect from our actions may not go according to plans. For example have you ever tried to calm a situation, but only made it worse with your choice of words.

Or let’s say your at school or a conference and you see someone sitting alone at lunch. You decide to share some light with this person, so you decide to invite them to sit with you and your friends so that they feel included. However, when you approach them, they react negatively and feel embarrassed about being singled out.

Despite your good intentions of including them, the effect is that they feel uncomfortable and may even avoid sitting with you in the future. This example illustrates how even with good intentions, our actions can sometimes lead to unintended negative consequences due to the principle of cause and effect.

For me, I’ve personally struggle to overcome these types of moments. And at times question rather or not I should continue giving light to someone that hasn’t asked for it. Honestly I do it on this space daily. When I realize I’m on here by myself lol. But then I acknowledge by questioning myself I’m allowing what Ive defined as a negative effect change who I am. And I won’t allow anything to discourage me from my truth.

We can’t stop moments like this from happening, but we can prepare ourselves for how to process those types of situations when they occur. So when faced with a negative effect despite good intentions, here’s ways we can overcome it:

– Reflect: Take time to reflect on the situation. Consider what actions or decisions led to the negative outcome and why they didn’t produce the intended result.

– Accept Responsibility: Ownership is everything. It’s also a way to gain respect from others. Acknowledge your role in the situation. Even with good intentions, it’s important to recognize that our actions can still have unintended consequences.

– Learn from Mistakes: Use the experience as a learning opportunity. Understand what went wrong and how you can approach similar situations differently in the future.

– If Necessary, Apologize: If your actions caused harm to others, offer a sincere apology. Taking responsibility and expressing remorse can help mend relationships and move forward positively.

– Take Corrective Action: Identify steps you can take to mitigate the negative effects or prevent similar outcomes in the future. This might involve adjusting your approach, or seeking advice from others.

– Stay Positive: Maintain a positive outlook despite setbacks. Understand that mistakes are part of the learning process, and use them to grow and improve.

– Persist: Don’t let one negative outcome discourage you. Stay committed to your goals and continue striving to make a positive impact, even in the face of challenges.

We can’t allow ourselves to be defined by moments where our (good intention) causes have the (negative) effects. If our intentions were pure, that’s the important thing. We get, what we give right? Well we gave light, and negative was returned, but that negative wasn’t meant for us. It belongs to that individual who took your good deed as something negative and projected it. Understand not every one feels comfortable with positive actions. In your heart you only had good intentions, and eventually that is what will be returned to you. So keep sowing those positive seeds 🙏🏾
