To say you are broken is an understatement. You have been used, lied to and thrown away like yesterday’s trash. The person who promised you undying love cut you off at the knees and left you for dead – at least, that’s how it feels. You were deserted in cold blood – no explanation, no apology, no closure. This is what you get in return for opening your heart, for loving fiercely.
It is only natural that you want revenge. You want retribution, you want them to feel the same amount of pain you did – or at least some version of it. Hold up. Before you go on to unleash your rage and inflict suffering, stop. Oh no, I have ZERO interest in protecting your tormentor, that demon deserves to hurt long and slow. I am only saying this for your sake. For trying to make the love traitor pay will only break your spirit. Getting obsessed with payback will rob you of your happiness and dreams. You will never be able to let go of that toxic relationship as long as vengeance is your middle name. Why give someone who left you in pieces so much power over you?
Oh but you still want payback, don’t you? Don’t you worry about that. Whether you get to see it happen or not, karma does a damn good job. It makes sure that everyone gets what they deserve one way or another. The day isn’t far when they will be the one left feeling like a lifeless, abandoned wretch, waiting for a lover that will never ever return.
So let karma work its magic. The only thing you need to do now is hang in there.
Keep calm and stay classy, and eventually, all those traumatic memories will become a distant blur. Take good care of yourself instead of letting thoughts of blood-lust turn you into the very monster that hurt you. Sit back and will yourself to simply focus on healing and living your life in peace. Over time, the hate will fade into the background.
The best part is, your decision to ignore them hard will do far more damage than the most elaborate revenge plan. When you cut and cauterize someone out of your life, you make that person question their importance in your life. Let’s not forget about the guilt that will consume them knowing that you chose not to avenge yourself.
Yes, even if your ex is the most soulless being you have ever encountered, they will regret their heartlessness. Even if they do not acknowledge this guilt, it will haunt them every single day. If that isn’t the sweetest kind of revenge, I don’t know what is.
