Revenge is a Confession of Pain

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

There is a Latin proverb that goes something like this: "revenge is a confession of pain"; it is very much true. I have had so many fantasies of revenge lately and it's only because I want her to hurt the way I hurt. I recognize that it is petty and childish and it's not at all the type of person that I want to be. It isn't something I would ever really do and I know it wouldn't make me feel better anyway. I wish this never happened. I'm still grieving and feel so depressed. I wish I could "snap out of it" or stop thinking about it but it's going to take time.

I need to focus on what I hope to accomplish in 2012. There are some things on the horizon that could be really good for me and my family and I need to put my energy into those things.

    What an insightful quote, and so true. It's no fun carrying around baggage from the past. I have a magnet with a native American quote that says something like, "Don't let yesterday take up too much of today." I love that. I also a quote recently that said "You can't reach for the stars if your hands are still free of yesterday's junk." I guess a lot of people are trying to forget the past and move on to a brighter tomorrow. It's not easy, but I do think our lives are better if we can forgive, forget, and move on. Take care!
