Revenge is unhealthy

While it can feel very satisfying to play tit-for-tat, studies show that revenge is often short-lived.

Revenge can make an incident much harder to overcome. Pay-back ties you to the person and keeps you focused on the mistreatment. It prevents you from moving forward and redirecting your life.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

We can't control when toxic emotions run through our minds, but we can control how we respond to those feelings.

While the desire to "get even" is understandable, doing so is likely to make things worse.

Humans are protective beings. If what we care about is threatened, our initial instinct is to want to do something about it.
