The best revenge is actually not taking any revenge at all. It’s not even holding on to any anger at all. It’s moving on with your life. It’s showing them life is so much better after they’re gone.
It’s easy to blame those that have wronged us but for just about everything, that is wrong, with our life. If it wasn’t for them, I would be happy. If it wasn’t for them, I would have more money. If they didn’t do this, I would be where I want to be.
Most people get so caught up in blaming; they continue to blame and sabotage their own life long after the person is gone from their life. Most people hold on to the blame because it’s easier than moving on. Having an excuse or a story of why they aren’t where they want to be gets them sympathy from others. The victim role gives them comfort. And it is much easier than taking responsibility and moving on with their life. However it is not and will never be a happy place to stay.
Those who take responsibility for their life and want to move and put the past behind them are much more likely to gain freedom, success and happiness. Now this does not mean there aren’t horrible people in the world that have done wrong by others. It is not condoning other’s behavior. It is taking back the power they have from you, when you are the one suffering long after they are gone.
- Who wins if you move on, forget about them and create the best life and success you could ever imagine?
- Who wins if you move on? Who wins if you forget about them?
- Who wins if you create your best ever life, full of success and abundance?
Take back your power. Blame them for what they have done, but don’t blame them for what you haven’t done. Blame them for what they have done, but bless them for making you stronger, for making you better. Blame them for what they have done, but thank them for showing you exactly what you don’t want. You can blame the world for bringing them into your life, but then grateful for all the lessons it taught you, all the strength it gave you, all the perspective it gave you.
Know in your heart if they knew better they would do better. Know in your heart you don’t need to take on any of their negative energy. How good does it feel to take that baggage of your shoulders? To focus on building your future. What a blessing! Let go. MOVE Forward. Never look back.
The best revenge is not taking any revenge. It is simply moving on with your life, creating the best version of yourself.
