Intense feelings of hate and wishing the worst for people has a much harder effect on you than it does your intended victim. The reel will play over and over in your head and put you into a doom loop of negativity and rage that actually just makes your life shittier… ask me how I know.
The great tragedy of a life full of hate and revenge is portrayed well in Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” and “Hatfields & McCoys” History Channel special (Jane and I actually just finished it on Netflix). Both of these films paint a vivid picture of where the path of ego, revenge, and hate can take you.
Seeking revenge and filling your heart with hate does not make you tough, it makes you weak and manipulable.
Although it's not easy, the right move here is to let go and focus on yourself.
The opposite of love is not hate, the opposite of love is indifference.
There is no better revenge than to move on… succeed, and live a life of prosperity, peace, and equanimity on your own terms.
