back......with a vengeance?

February 1, 2012 11:29am CST
people will tell you that revenge is never a good idea, but some people live their entire lives by it. I personally do believe that revenge can sometimes make you feel better.And that one mans revenge is another man's justice. Cosmic revenge used to be fashionable but that's a lorry load of old poo. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people, that's not opinion, that's fact. Do you live your life by the code of an eye for an eye? Or is revenge a bitter sweet bad idea to you?

Sometimes it's better to forgive and forget. Other times it's better to get even than to get mad. Certainly I wouldn't ever hurt anyone, but sometimes it just feels so good to be able to say, "I told you so".

Amen, or as sheldon cooper would say "I informed you thusly"

Hi there, vengeance will just likely create a very chaotic situation, and it's the solution of the problem, but yes in our minds and heart as sinful beings, we really can take that out easily. But as they say that peace must start within our selves, so how can we have a peace world if in our selves we don't have even that peace? it's really very ironic but being in this sinful world we really can experience it.

Revenge might seem like a good idea at the time. However, there are just a lot of times where it happens and then, you're still hurt from what happened after the slight rush of doing the act of revenge. Therefore, it is just a good idea to rather move on with your lives. A bad thing happened, but it is best to just move on and move forward. In some ways, that might be a form of revenge, to let the person know that what they've done won't effect you and you're moving on with your life. In the end, it is very easy to be trapped up in thoughts of revenge. Revenge a lot of the time can lead to the other person feeling slighted and gaining revenge. Therefore the cycle of revenge is something that is never ending, never broken, and can go on for years. I doubt few people will want to be caught up in, in the end.
