“The best revenge is massive success.”

                                      ~Frank Sinatra~

So what, some people don’t like you and they never will. The majority of people you meet are assholes and are only looking to use you. They may need a shoulder to cry on, regular free counseling sessions, money, a place to stay; I think you get my point. People use people to get what they want and then bounce in the other direction.

Let them bounce!

You’re probably pissed off and mad as hell when you’re left. But should you allow that emotion to take over, causing you to seek revenge? No one is worth you setting goals around them.

And guess what? 

While you’re allowing them to live rent-free in our heads, they aren’t thinking about you. The goals you set and reach will not affect them. They don’t care!

I always frowned when I heard people say, “Revenge is sweet.” I mean, is revenge sweet? And if so, why? The first reason that pops in my congested noggin is we are materialistic, malicious humans. Revenge wants someone to drool when you walk past because they like what you have and want it! Or even worse, revenge is plotting to harm someone physically.


Flip the script

I can think of a handful of people that may not think too highly of me and one of which should theoretically think the world of me. But whatever, I can’t make you love me if you don’t. “Ain’t that right, Adele.” And just like Adele, I sing a sad song or two and move on.

If you find that moving on is hard, think about your life and how little of it you have. Every moment you waste seeking revenge is a moment lost that you could’ve spent on finding happiness. Forget about revenge and live your life. We are on this earth for such a short time, and we deserve to spend our time being productive. Allowing someone to consume our thoughts as we plot out an attack is pointless. Cut the cord and move on.

The best revenge is sitting in your bed, watching your favorite movie while eating a thick, decadent piece of chocolate cake. 

After you workout, of course!

  1. Ah my friend you said it all and you said it best as you always do! Happiness and success are indeed the best revenge, and both are ours alone to claim. And then this is the best you said –
    The best revenge is sitting in your bed, watching your favorite movie while eating a thick, decadent piece of chocolate cake – awesomeness :))

  2. Brilliant and I never found revenge to be sweet either. To be honest that mind frame and carrying out some heinous act is not me at all. I’m not sure if I’d be even capable to go through with it lol. Wimpy lol but that’s ok for me. You may have heard one of my favorite quotes
    Weak people revenge
    Strong people forgive
    Intelligent people ignore
    Enough said lol 😉

  3. Belladonna, when I was younger, I was ready to take revenge on those who deceived or hurt me in some way. Yet somehow, the words of my mother would resonate differently and I found myself chickening out and not going through with it. When I got my divorce back in the 80’s, I didn’t go off like a bunch of fireworks over NYC on New Year’s Day like I probably could have justified doing. BUT, whenever he/they saw me, I looked better than I did when I was married! Your message resonates LOUD and CLEAR girlfriend. Set yourself FREE!!! 🏃🏽‍♀️🤣🏃🏽‍♂️

      1. Trust me, I did, with an ATTITUDE at that! LOL 🤩 Oh girl, I found inspiration from places and people I never imagined, and I used every bit of it to my advantage! Talk about green with envy??? 🤢 Two snaps, a circle and stilettos 👠 to put a nail in the coffin! ⚰

        Like we said before, don’t start nothin’, it won’t be nothin’! Drop the mic! 🎤🎤🎤

      2. I’m here for all of this!!!!!!! I love saying I can show you better than I can tell. This fits you oh so beautifully🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾💖💖💖

  4. Oh I love this. Reminds me of this quote (I’m not sure who said it) “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.”
    Like you said, cut the cord and move on! Life is too short for bitterness!

  5. I raced through this page. I just stumble upon this email.
    I must clean up my social media spaces, its getting out of hand.
    Too much spam
    It’s not looking good at all.

    Sweet topic. Most people who can handle the consequences of ■revenge is sweet■ release it into the universe or maybe they have never swallowed the bitter pill of a heavy hand comeback, so they don’t care, or maybe their injuries wete mild from the previous acts of revenge.
    Young people tend to use it loosely and alot. I think to them it sounds sexy and it feels powerful.
    One has to gently steer them away from it, snatch it out of the universe and bury it.
