Default Do you believe in revenge?

Be honest as I'm sure The common answer would be usually "what does revenge accomplish? Nothing you would just feel empty afterwards." Which isn't ALWAYS true, sometimes revenge can be sweet and satisfying especially if it's done correctly and depending on the motivations BEHIND said revenge, and I would like opinions.

I personally believe revenge in certain areas are acceptable, while other situations are petty but at the same time you can still understand why they'd still want revenge.

Example of something I think is acceptable, when someone does something wrong to you to hurt you and you don't think it was justified at all you may in the back of your head want to get them back in some way. BULLYS fall into this area very very well.

Example of something petty, "Stealing" someones boyfriend/girlfriend from someone, I can TOTALLY understand feeling betrayed like that to the point that you'd want revenge but at the same time if the feelings your boyfriend/girlfriend had for you were so low that they went for someone else that easily then they wasn't worth it to begin with.

Default Re: Do you believe in revenge?

Sometimes.

I don't really go by the saying "an eye for an eye" (well, idealistically in my mind, I find that wrong - however I can't truly say I don't do it). But sometimes it's necessary to assert some form of payback so that people basically don't walk all over you and target you again and again.

Personally, I believe in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
Revenge is definitely sweet, doesn't mean it should always be sought out, though. Sometimes it's not even worth it, but most of the time, yeah, revenge is great.

Default Re: Do you believe in revenge?

Eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

That said, if someone I know personally were to do something to me or a friend that's just completely heinous and awful then I would consider it in the best interests of our safety to incapacitate that person to prevent them from repeating their actions again. Although, I'm not quite sure what exactly it takes for self-defence or avengement to become revenge for revenge's sake.








PM me if you need anything.

Default Re: Do you believe in revenge?

Idk, maybe. I've never really done revenge.
Revenge is only good when it's clever and i'm too stupid to think of anything clever.

Default Re: Do you believe in revenge?

There have been instances where I've been vengeful and have acted in a certain way that I now regret. Personally, I don't feel any better after being mean to someone, just because they're not in my good books.

Revenge is the perfect solution for small things.

Prank for a prank

Shit like that. I'm not gonna go all Count of Monte Cristo for my revenge though

Default Re: Do you believe in revenge?

In my opinion, revenge isn't the way to get back at people.
"Two wrongs don't make a right."
I remember i once got hurt by someone, and i thought i'd do the same back and it got me nowhere, it made the situation a lot worse.
Forgetting whatever happened is the best thing today, as it shows you are more mature.


If it is just a playful revenge and everyone knows its a joke, then yes that's okay.

Default Re: Do you believe in revenge?

I think that it certainly can help from a selfish point of view. But sometimes it's best not to agitate things even more, especially if what someone did to you wasn't really that bad in the first place. I think that if you're okay with the idea of getting revenge for something someone did to you, you probably shouldn't be against people getting revenge on you either.
