Forget about getting even

It’s happened to all of us. We’ve been hurt, cheated on or deceived. Once we’ve “licked our wounds” the first inclination is usually to get even with the one who has caused us pain. If you have these thoughts, remember that getting even wastes your bravery and energy. If your driving force is motivated by thoughts of revenge, you will not succeed and you will only cause yourself more pain. Forget getting even.
