“What about doing bad things to yourself? e.g. someone who tries to control everyone else just makes themselves mostly miserable. And people can really beat themselves up for no reason sometimes…”
dolce, that’s a great question. My husband has strong opinions on this subject. We know people like this. He feels that squandering talent is a serious offense.
He feels, if you are given gifts or other advantages and you waste them you are going to come back around with far less talent (or other perks). Not only that, you’ll still be expected to do exactly what you refused to do the time before.
He’s adamant he is about this. “If people had any idea how bad it can be, they wouldn’t even consider wasting their talent…”
Some use their talent to wreak havoc and cause other people pain. This is an even higher class of offense.
Astrologically, my husband has that Saturn, Mars and Mercury involved in a t-square. By his model he’s got to use that energy responsibly or else.
In whatever case, he invites people to pull their crap. “Be greedy,” he says. “Then see how much you have next time around…”
Do you waste your talent?
