REVENGE IS ONLY GOING TO KEEP YOU ANGRY…
Revenge is fun, right? They do it in books and on TV shows and in movies and comic books. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and revenge is best served cold, and all of the hoopla surrounding revenge is really just a reason to not forgive. For me, there simply wasn’t a good enough reason to forgive my friend. She sued me after I almost died saving her life and left me with permanent brain damage. Wanting revenge had me holding on to negativity and that isn’t a good look for anyone. Our hearts aren’t meant to hold on to negativity. My need for revenge was camouflaged by wanting justice, but it blinded me from what I needed to see, stunted my emotional growth, forced me to sit with the negativity for too long and stopped me from being able to ever trust anyone completely again. When I forgave myself for wanting revenge and for being lost and not knowing how to survive any of the obstacles life had thrown at me, I made an agreement with myself that I was ready to release the negativity and move beyond it. Don’t forgive and forget. Forgive and learn the lesson. Forgive and reach a new level of awareness that allows you to become more present with yourself. The more present I am with me, the more I understand when other people aren’t present with me.
Wanting revenge only kept me marinating in negativity. When I found forgiveness I had no need for revenge. I let the rage and all the negativity go and freed myself.
