Not Always Sweet Revenge: Resisting the Urge to Get Back at Your Ex
© 2009 by Zabrina Way
When you've been cheated on, dumped, or otherwise maligned by a nasty
piece of work you unfortunately once called your lover, revenge is the
often one of the first things to mind when your ex's name comes up in
the conversation. Tempting though it might be, getting revenge actually
a bad idea for many reasons.
Particularly online, where it's tempting to think you're anonymous and
he or she will never know you said anything, word does spread. It just
doesn't look good to be talking about someone behind his or her back,
no matter what medium of communication you use. Of course, you can talk
about the breakup and reasons with close friends, but don't spread the
word to all and sundry and proceed to gossip about your ex.
Spreading rumors is also a bad idea, since rumors can be traced back to
their source. If bad things start being spread around right after you
suffered at his or her hands, it's going to be obvious that it was you
starting the rumors, so resist the urge to do it. Would you want him or
her saying the same thing about you? If not, don't say it!
Physical retribution is also a big no-no. No matter whether he loved
his car or she loved her cat more than you, touching your ex's stuff is
a big no-no, and can even land you in legal trouble. Sure, you can
enjoy the loud country breakup songs about smashing your ex's car
windows, but don't act on those daydreams.
Last, and most importantly, why bother wasting your energy on something
that's over and someone who isn't a part of your life anymore? Instead,
it's better to put your energy towards building a new relationship, or
relaxing and having fun being single!
