Revenge or Forgiveness? And why?

There are times someone does something to you and you wish you had a super power So you could just outshine them. Yet other times you may just be like whatever, and justify their actions with how human they are and how it must have happened for a good reason.

Thinking about some I’ll situations or circumstances people have put you through, and you had a choice to either do something bad against them or just let go, what would it be and why? Remember this has to be your call. Forget what religion or culture or parents have taught you. It’s you to decide. What would it be?

  1. It's good to forgive people no matter what they have done for you. Unforgiveness is a burden that is too heavy to carry.

  1. It is forgiveness for me. Revenge does not bring any good to you. Infact, it creates more hate amongst people which is very unhealthy to the society. One should learn to forgive and move on. Forgiveness brings a peace of mind to you and even guilt to the other party.

  2. Depends...being "the nice guy" all the time will just make people to belittle and trash you...at times you gotta fight back so that they know they can't be just messing with you anyhow..however, i wouldn't call this revenge, rather term it as 'self defense'

    I may sound like a very cold person but this is my reality – I have 0 tolerance for betrayal. This does not mean I hold a grudge, oh no, disloyal people don’t deserve that space & time. It simply means I act swiftly & decisively on those who harm me or others in order to prevent a repeat. This is very important.

    Do not confuse this with ‘revenge’ – no. Revenge is retributive and out of spite with no pragmatic purpose. What I speak of here is more teleological and effective – learning from your botched interaction and avoiding a repeat occurrence the same way you’d say, not lend a friend money because he did not pay back the last time you did – here there is no grudge nor is there retribution, it’s pure logic. You learned that he is incapable of handling money and therefore made a decision to avoid a repeat case. That’s all.
    You have to realise something, in this world there are people who are totally ruthless and will not hesitate to take advantage of your kindness to their benefit.

    From next year I won’t be in the youth bracket anymore but I will say, in my short life thus far, I have encountered some of the most devious individuals. And the interesting thing is, there are still more devious & colder people I am yet to interact with. That is life. Be prepared.

    PS: Do not lose a wink of sleep over the cold & ruthless instead learn to survive.
