Ya I'd probably agree with you, there's a quote (I forget who said it) that basically says if you don't let anger out, and you hold it in for too long, it turns into revenge. I wonder how you could let your anger out on a person who is easily moved...
For me, you have to be really passionate about something to get revenge. I think it should belong in comic books. You can get back at someone, but revenge is the extreme end of the spectrum.
I don't think I've ever done something to the point of revenge, but I do like to get even on some things. I can't remember the last time I actually "carried out a plan". I usually just get mad, curse at them, stop being friendly, and move on.
This is a good topic and a hard one to answer because this emotion is hard to control even for disciplined person, my experience with it tells me that it is a disappointing one, it never satisfies us and it makes us feel worst than before we execute it. Forgiveness is a better way to go, but who chooses this one? I have been a complete failure so far, I need to work very hard on this because a I know that revenge is a bad thing.
I'd seek revenge if I thought there was good reason for it.
I haven't had any good reasons myself.
The year after I graduated from high school a kid from like 2 grades bellow me raped a 6 year old then went on the run because the cops were looking for him, so were the girl's parents, I honestly think if the girl's parents caught him and did whatever it was they would have done, I couldn't have blamed them.
Course he's rotting in jail now, so thats for the best as far as I'm concerned.
First I wanna say that I am CycloneTellos (had to change my email address because I used the wrong one...)
Anyways I had an experience with revenge recently and it seems like it was a good idea at first but after it was done I felt kinda bad. Revenge satisfies one's initial thoughts buy dissatisfying your thoughts after it has been executed. I guess most things have a way of balancing themselves.
