About a month or so ago (give or take a week) a situation arose that was not to my liking. I decided to handle the situation magically. I made a few mistakes that caused me to get bit in the ass nicely. I won’t go into the personal details but yeah…I fucked up royally.
I let my fears and insecurities get the better of me.
I let my ego and overconfidence get in the way of common sense.
I did NOT do any kind of divination before attacking the situation.
I did NOT take the time to evaluate why I was doing the spell.
So not long after the spell I came to a the realization I had acted in a very reactionary manner and that acting from a position of fear and weakness was not the best approach. I ended the spell and patted myself smugly on the back for recognizing my own bullshit and thought no more of it. A few weeks went by and the result manifested, the only issue was I did not recognize this because once again my ego got in the way. It dawned on me last night that my desired results manifested exactly as I had hoped, the problem was they had effected the wrong person in the equation, this miscalculation has been biting me in the ass since it occurred and only now have I realized it.
So I hope everyone can take something from this and help prevent yourself from getting your ass burned like I have, it’s not one of my proudest moments (in fact it fucking sucks to know that I fucked up this bad) but it has definitely been a sobering experience.
Do not do magic without understanding your true motivations.
Do not do magic without calculating the risks
Do not do magic from a reactionary position
Do not let your emotions override common sense.
Best of luck
