Good afternoon.Had a very busy day but good. Does revenge make you feel any better. I have read so many stories of murder,Hired gun etc. Here in NH we had one that hired a gunman to kill her ex boy friend girl friend. This is sort of becoming a habit. How do you take revenge out of someone.? Never was in this spot and hope not. I will never take revenge for anything.I find this stupid,very stupid. If your relationship does not work out or anything.Let it go and start again. Killing is not the answer to revenge. Photo is public domain

Seeking revenge is ridiculous. I don't know why people just can't move forward with their lives. I have heard many stories like that though.

I used to seek revenge when I was younger. As I got older I realized that revenge is an acid that eats away at your soul and spirit. Revenge is like swallowing poison then waiting for the other person to die. Much better to forget that person, learn the lesson that they had to teach you, don't repeat the same mistake, and live your life in a positive way. I used to watch the show "Revenge" but it got so negative that I realized it was not a good influence on my life. Life is tough enough without letting a television show foster vicarious feelings of regret, depression, and hatred.

This is what happens to me when I am seeing all these Murder Series as its always about revenge mostly. The Program has to be really good for me to even give it any thought otherwise I prefter to write on here or read something that takes me away from it. I donĀ“t like revenge either so I try to forgive and forget. Although I think forgiving is easier than forgetting.

Revenge of any kind is hard to understand isn't it. People obviously are so angry they can't think of the consequences. As you say, walking away is the best answer.

I never seek for revenge, you surely have read the Bible: Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.

When you first plan for a revenge...you feel so good about it... But then once the revenge is done... You feel lost.

Taking revenge till its bearable to other person is fine... But revenge by murdering them is not at all good... What I feel is god and mother gave us the birth... And one should not dare to end someone's life....

Some people feel better by doing revenge. Me I just let God bring judgement to them. They will pay for it sooner or later. The wrong thing they do will comeback to them

@happyhaha the photo is not the right one for the show.Checkout the woman there.It is not the original woman who starred in the series.

i think taking revenge is ok, but in order to do that, one have to be more specific about that, question is:what kind of revenge he/she wants? according to me, if something is occuring in front of you & you r suffering from that, now, you are not spontaneous enough to give an instant reply, then it's impact lasts in our mind for a very long period of time, which causes a severe damage.., so that's not good at all..
