Instead of Revenge...

Try doing something positive for yourself rather than something negative to someone else.

How to Avoid Vengeful Thoughts & Actions

As this may seem as a side tangent, you should always consider the the flip side. These are words of wisdom a mentor once bestowed onto me. Remember that by seeking revenge, you are giving that person "the victee" power over you. Power over your thoughts, over your emotions, and potentially power over your actions.

Instead of honing that energy to seek revenge, hone that energy to make yourself a stronger, smarter, healthier, and more powerful individual. Cultivate something new with that new energy and vigor. Do something special for yourself that you enjoy. Either way, try to take any negative situation and turn it around to make a positive. You can take away either the worst or the best part of any situation. You have the power to take control over anything.

My tips to get revenge turn the tables upside down. Turn the focus towards yourself, which is the last thing the victee would anticipate.

1. Do something positive for yourself.

2. Spend time making yourself a stronger, wiser person.

3. Do everything in your power to get that negative person out of your life.

4. Succeed them or surpass them in any given skill.

5. Find a way to take their power away.

6. Surround yourself with better people.

7. Become wealthy and rich.

8. Take the time to invest in your health. Maybe Start exercising or trying a different form of exercise. Take your mind off of them.

9. Lose those extra pesky pounds. Make them jealous of you.

10. Become the one in charge of them.

People who take advantage of you, cheat on you, or whatever the case may be in your situation, simply don't deserve you. It may be best to move on in life an find someone or a group of people much better. You want to find yourself with people moving up in the world, not moving backwards.
