if someone did you wrong, will you just keep quiet or will you take your revenge?. . i know someone who feels humiliated if someone did something wrong to him even how small it may be he will still take his vengeance by any means.. it's not just an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth but he will make his enemy pay even much more than what he took from him. i once remembered this one instance when his girlfriend did'nt tell him about going out with some friends, he was very angry and cheated on her as a vengeance. he told me that he just feel much better by doing so. so beware of guys like him or you'll suffer harder than you can imagine..

I tend top keep quite and do nothing to take revenge against someone, but in my thought i am. It is easy for me to forgive someone doing that to me but i can not forget it, and i am thinking, someone will take revenge in behalf of me.

Hi cainam! I already experienced this with my last boyfriend about five years ago. He cheated on me and I do love him very much so my initial reaction was to plot a revenge. I threw all the letters he gave me, I gave him back all the stuffs he gave me, and I even broke my suitor's heart by making my former boyfriend jealous with that guy. I've done many crazy things after the break-up and my friends even told my I was not the person that I really am after that break-up. Despite all those desperate things just to get over him or my hopes to get him back, it just won't happen. He doesn't seem to care at all so I just let go and moved on. Honestly? Sometimes I feel better by taking revenge because it feels like I'm given justice. But you see when this person doesn't really care at all about your plot of revenge it still would not work. Although it might seem that the hurt is on that person, the burden's just getting heavier if you instill hate in your heart. So I'd rather move on with my life and leave the vengeance to God because I He knows best. :) So instead of plotting a revenge against my former boyfriend I focused on improving myself physically and by being good in my studies. The worst thing was that when I already moved on and lost interest in boys he would just suddenly show up to ask me to be friends with him again. It just would not worked now that I've already moved on, but it just shows that I have made a revenge in a different but wholesome way. The fact that he goes after me after I focused on improving myself just show that the whole break-up was his loss and not mine ;)

There is an old saying, 'What goes around, comes around,' meaning everyone gets their just desserts in the end. Whether you believe this comes from God or Man, it does seem to work. Taking revenge on someone who has treated you badly by treating them badly may make you feel better for a moment, but all it really achieves is damage to your self respect. If someone treats me badly, and I know it's not just a one-off lapse of judgement, I cut them out of my life.

I will never take revenge to someone who had make bad thing to me.I will only pray to God to hit him back in other way.I know it will give bad effect back to me if i take revenge and do it by my own.So i will let God do it for me someday.
