It is payback time. Someone has done you a harm, and now you want to inflict harm on him or her. You want retribution. We see it all the time in so many movies and TV shows. A man seeks revenge for what has been done to him, and he gets it. Wouldn’t you love the chance to say such powerful words now you get to have your revenge? Does revenge belong in our real lives?
We see it as a way of getting closure after we have been wronged, and it can be quite rewarding in the heat of the moment. Still, does it stay rewarding? What it actually does is prolongs the suffering of the original wrongdoing. It means that, instead of healing your wounds, you are keeping them fresh.
It re-opens your wounds and aggravates them. Therefore, in reality, you are punishing yourself instead of the one that has hurt you. However, if someone has hurt you, should you just forgive and forget? What should you do instead of seeking revenge? There is healthy revenge, and you achieve it by succeeding. Put that intensity towards growth and your goals.
