Revenge!

REVENGE, just the sound of it feels wonderful. You can almost taste the word on your tongue, it conjuers up wonderful images and scenarios and you can see it happening in your mind.  So write it down, record it, and then for the love of God, erase it, tear it up and let it go!  Why?  Well, best case scenario, you're going to come off as the crazy ex.  Worst case scenario, you are going to end up in jail.  As much as revenge sounds good (getting back at them for what they did to you) - and trust me, I’ve had my own fantasies of revenge. but at the end of the day is it really going to make things any different? NO!  Still, my suggestion is, play it out in your mind, savor the feeling, enjoy the fantasy,write your own righteous ending. Get it out of your system, and then move on.  No matter what they say about revenge being best served cold, it’s just not in your best interest. I don’t think at the end of the day, the next day, two days later, or two years later, you are going to look back and be proud of yourself. I have found that life has a way of taking care of all of the payback that you’ll ever need and, with any luck, when it happens you won’t care.  

 

 

That IS the ultimate revenge, living your life being happy.  And if you ever get to the point where you can actually be happy for them finding joy in their life, then you’ll know that you have really been able to let go and move forward.  So that is my advice to you about revenge – just don’t do it!
