“The best revenge is massive success.”
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.
LET IT GO!
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!
