Revenge is not usually discussed in a positive light. So why do so many of us get caught up in it? If we were called out on it, in the act, we would probably choose another path than the path of revenge.
It is, we might say, a natural response to being wronged. We want to get back. We want to get even. We to return the fair response to an action committed against us. But what we forget is these continued lashes back and forth are just hurting more and more of us. The hurt, the pain, will never stop. And in the end, we’ll all be blind.
