Revenge Is Best Served.....

Has someone done something so painful that you feel like you have to get them back? But deep down what fuels that? Is it personality? Or as humans have we been conditioned to get revenge? Don't believe me then let me kick you some knowledge at you real quick. A woman works late and on the way to her car she is taken and raped. She gets away and is coherent enough to give the police a description of the rapist. The rapist is caught but before he has a chance to go to trail the woman's husband puts a bullet in the guys head. Now if that guy was a rational person the husband would of let our court system take care of the rapist but he felt that he had to get revenge for his wife's rape. Does that mean he wasn't rational? Is rationale even a factor in something like this? I wouldn't go so far as to say that you should go around and tell you to go shoot people that have done you wrong. If that was the case all us would be doing a lot of time. Let me ask you one more question: will statifying that urge to get that person back really suffice what they have done to you?

Revenge is best served when a rational person really thinks about what they are doing and knows their conquence to their actions.

I know my last couple of posts have been the happiest so I promise the next one will be on a better note.

Much Love,
