  • I have no room in my life for urges of revenge.
  • I would imagine that it must feel pretty good, to get back someone who's done you real wrong. I'd say pretty important...you owe it to urself
  • What goes around comes around in the end.
  • There is one thing in my life for which I can still taste the bitterness of wanting revenge I suppose I always will.. Other than this one thing I do not think anything is important enough to ruin my life over.
  • I have better things to do than obsess over the past. If someone 'does me wrong' they don't need me to 'get revenge' on them, they will bring that on themselves in good time. Meanwhile, I am enjoying my life.
  • Not the least. First, what has happened yesterday is history. I can't change history...all I can do is change how I view it. So I choose to view it in the most positive light possible. As for spending energy on "revenge", why bother? I do not see any benefit to me in causing harm to another. In fact, the energy I spend trying to harm another can be better spent helping myself.
  • When I have been done wronged am I am the innocent party, revenge is sweetest when I see retribution coming back to the offending party two fold or higher and is especially if I took no action meting it out.
  • It is never right. When you purposely wrong someone, it will come back to you. Are you prepared to reap what you sow? Not 2 fold but 7 fold? I'm not.
  • There are notions in this life, things that people feel different about and then there are laws, laws that regardless how you feel about them they are there, take gravity for example, you can stand firm and believe that gravity isn't a law for you but you had best be careful when you step off the porch..LOL...cause gravity will make a believer outta you....I said all that to say this...The law of Sowing and Reaping is alive and well also...God enacts revenge in the form of reaping that which one sows, and He claims it for himself as stated in the book of Romans 12:19.
  • I would be lying if I said revenge wasn't sweet. That being said, I will never seek revenge. I couldn't live with myself longterm if I were to viciously lash out. I say this because I've done it myself many years ago. All those I've lashed out against I've since made amends. Those whom I've been unable to contact will remain on my conscious forever. I've grown and matured. There is no joy in damaging another human being. Even if they have or continue to hurt you, revenge doesn't soothe. If you believe that revenge avails you, then you should reexamine your self esteem.
  • To seek revenge may lead to Hell, but everyone does it. It's quite importatn to me, I have to say. If someone does something - Iw ill get them back. I must.
  • I would not personally seek revenge on anyone, but... I truly believe that what goes around comes around. If you treat people like jerks and create a negative atmosphere around you it will come back to get you eventually.
  • not at all. truth is...i'm not very good at scheming. and i probably feel worse for the wear.
  • Revenge should be a healthy competition,not a war, with jealousy and hatred.
  • Not very. What goes around come back around.
  • I don't do revenge. I know that if a person wrongs me, karma will serve them their just desserts in the end.
  • I don't even consider the subject,and never use revenge,for the pay back in karma is too great.
  • Unfortunately for me, I seem to let revenge control my life sometimes, which IS NOT good for me or them
  • It is not important to me nor should it be to me or anyone else. God said in the Bible "Vengeance is mine, I will repay". Revenge and Vengeance does not belong to me and is not my right. -In the service of the Master. Thank you and God bless you!
  • Not really. I believe that you reap what you sow, and what goes around comes around.
  • At the moment it would be so sweet and forefilling. If there was a way to exact it and only hurt the person its intended for, I'd stop at nothing to make sure its done. Unfortunately, it almost always hurts the people you love.
  • "I don't get mad. I get even"
  • Not at all. Vengefulness and jealousy are two destructive emotions.
  • Eventhough many times if someone has wronged me i think of revenge and thoughts like that...but the truth is i realise it is wrong to take revenge as it is destructive and cannot change a person for good. So it does not interest me. I ignore it!
  • I prefer to leave vengeance in the hands of the All Mighty. If I am wronged, then I may seek justice through the appropriate legal channels. However, if that does not work out to my satisfaction, than I will simply drop the matter in God's hands and trust that the wrong doer will eventually receive his just reward.
  • I place zero importance on revenge ( I am thinking I might, if certain things were done to my children)
  • It doesn't interest me at all. By allowing someone to make me feel that way , I am handing over to them control of my emotions, THEY are driving my feelings. I won' tdo that. So I just forgive them and let it flow right out of my life and then my feelings are all my own and I have control of how I want to feel. "They" aren't making me do things maybe I don't want to do or making me feel negative things.
  • Extremely. I live for revenge, and nothing makes me happier than to get it.
  • Revenge itself? Unimportant. It can be as destructive to you as the person you take revenge on. BUT...plotting revenge can be theraputic..planning right down to the last detail all the things you could do to a person..it gets all those thoughts and feelings out of your system and then move on.
  • I'd cut the whole world in half for the #1 headband!
  • It depends how close the thing was to me. But it sometimes dose'nt . I dont really beleive in it!
  • petty revenge is often consumed by a weak mind, an unsure person having a knock back feeling they have to prove themself true revenge can consume even the most strong minded person, as all that negative energy is channelled through the strongest human emotions. Power of mind would hugely generate, and rational thought would be almost insignificant. e.g. if someone purposely killed the person you love with all your heart, for no reason..? in this case the importance of revenge would surpass almost anything else, but that importance would be based around unrational thinking. Power would come with being able to think about channelling revenge rationally But maybe even in an extreme situation, finding a way of not giving in to the revenge gene, possibly from an external source, may make you a stronger person. Whereas the person who has caused the pain, is left for that to consume them for the rest of their life. E.g. if you did something where you expected revenge, and it doesn't come, you would be living in fear. So the strongest minds are the ones that see no importance in revenge, and hold no anger.
  • revenge can ease the mind but not the soul .to take revenge often means you fall into the same catagary as those who have done the deed..but to take revenge on someone who has done wrong to you by legal means can justify taking revenge .
  • I have no interest in revenge..It is a purely negative emotional state.
  • It's as important as which tree in the yard is that tallest a pine tee or a pine cone? Greenbean
  • well i believe in retaliation, is someone does something to you, you should do something back. but if it goes beyond, thats battle, and i dont like that.
  • Not important. If someone intentionally offends me or hurts me, I have learned it is easier just to go on down the road.
  • In the first 15 seconds; high priority, but quickly fading to not at all.
  • There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness!! My revenge will be to get over the matter/the person and live well.
