No. I sought revenge once in my life. It has left a bad taste in my mouth ever since.

No, I do not.

I DO believe in communicating to a person how their behavior or words impacted me, but no, not revenge.

I do believe in revenge or some type of get back but I do feel there is a limit. Some people are wronged and then want to hurt the other person 10 times more and that is even more wrong. I also think that under certain circumstances, a person should just let some things go.

Well, the term "believe in" would have to be expounded on for me.

Revenge is something that is very real. We see it everyday, and the consequences seem so unfair.

But whether we like it or not, sometimes it is something that is necessary.

Modern religion and law seeks to maintain control by implying and reinforcing how wrong it is.

But how wrong is it really?

Seems it can get complicated at times huh? If I thought out a strategy for revenge, it might be considered "pre-meditated"...

same here, i got the revenge but the repercusions was humiliating. it wasnt worth it at all. also i have noticed when i don't take revenge, Karma really does come and sometimes i see it or hear about it, nontheless i know it comes. we all really reap what we saw.

By all means a clean conscience and inner peace makes life so much enjoyable.

The root of revenge is hate. It takes too much energy to hate. Karma takes care of everything.

You would have to walk in a mans shoes to understand his true reasons for revenge, revenge is personal.
For me revenge has known no true satistfaction
I am not sad nor am I happy.
My reasons for revenge is to simply teach a lesson and promote fear with in the hearts of my former enemys.

i don't believe in revenge or karma, i believe in grace because one is based on hate and the other is based on reincarnation/everything equals out bullsh!t. grace on the other hand is the golden rule, christ, and buddha all put together.
i used to believe in the half drunk/ whole pissed off beat-ass, but that only ends in more beat-ass and trouble so i'm definitely beyond that now.

I don't like the idea of "revenge" per se. But I do recognize its perceived value and social importance.

I have committed acts of retribution because circumstances demanded a negative response. Sometimes an "object lesson" is required to illustrate consequences for would-be adversaries. Done in anger however, revenge has a prickly way of backfiring.

I guess that's why they say it's a dish best served cold.

No, it only wears at you. The best revenge is being happy. I'm not saying that you shouldn't make sure that you make certain that the person can't harm you again, but to harm them as "an eye for an eye", will only give you a headache.

Yes I believe in revenge, sometimes I realize that its not really worth it anymore because what goes around comes around.
