Revenge is an action that causes harm and makes another person suffer. Revenge may feel good for the moment but taking revenge has many consequences, not so good ones, believe me.

Taking Revenge

What does revenge mean? Revenge is getting even, tit for tat, an eye for an eye. How does revenge feel to you? Do you feel happy after getting back? Does the happiness last? Let's think about it.

Revenge may give you the satisfaction that you have got back but does it end there? No, never and if you think that it has ended then my friend you are mistaken. Taking revenge is a vicious cycle, it never ends.

Ignore and Move On

Do not give someone else the power to take control of your emotions and make you feel miserable, ignore and move on. Once the person knows that you are not going to be affected, they will never be able to get their revenge.

When you decide to take revenge, remember that you are starting a battle that is going to be long and bitter and can have repercussions on your near and dear ones.

Belief in Karma

Karma states that every action always has a reaction. Good begets good and bad begets bad. Revenge is not going to bring you anything good. Revenge can instigate more revenge, and it never stops.

Being the better person , you should be able to brush it off and carry on with your life. Do not give the person the satisfaction of knowing that you have been hurt. A person who takes revenge comes to no good as bad karma only attracts more bad consequences.

Revenge, how does it feel to you? Not so good, I guess. Revenge is never the best of solutions in any situation. Remember good begets good and bad begets bad.

Revenge is not a positive state of mind or energy to indulge yourself in – Michael K. Williams

An eye for an eye will surely make the whole world blind – Mahatma Gandhi

Those who plot the destruction of others often perish in the attempt – Thomas Moore

Well said Vellur. Thoughts of revenge should never enter our minds - they cast a dark shadow to our thoughts and we will regret our actions therefrom. We should never descend to such low levels. There are many positive people around to share our time; let others fulfill their karma while we go our way to create positive vibes - siva

Great write, I believe the triumph from revenge is short lived, but sometimes people's bad actions bring out the worst in us.
