After a messy breakup, it can be tempting to exact some kind of revenge on our ex. I know rejection can hurt but cooking up some evil plan to make you feel better actually won’t make you feel better at all. In fact, you end up feeling even more miserable. So why do we try to get back at our ex?
One of my friends is so hurt and angry at her ex. It seems that his life is continuing on without her and he seems happy. This is starting to really get to her. She asked, “Why does he get to move on and be happy after what he put me through?” Nothing I say to her is making her feel better. She wants to serve up a cold dish of revenge. If you start getting crazy ideas of revenge, it is time to dial a friend or therapist!
Have you ever had such a hard time with a breakup that you wanted some kind of revenge? Did you come to realize that it wasn’t worth it?
I can remember being very tempted to do some awful things using my ex-boyfriend’s social security number. I just could not condone ruining his life to that degree, simply because I had my heart broken. I get wanting to do something to take the pain and disappointment away. I’m just here to tell you that it ends up doing the exact opposite! Well, I know that has been my experience. What about you?
Have you ever been on the receiving end of an angry revenge plan by your ex?
