#02. Am I hurting myself when I think of taking revenge?

We, humans, are considered to be the smartest of all species. The only difference between us and other species is that we are blessed with the power to, first think and then act. In simple terms, we don’t need to be trained. Thinking of revenge might seem fair but if you think carefully it takes up most of your productive time to plan and execute, and even after that you have to make sure those things go according to your plan. What if it does not? Every minute of your time is wasted. Now, you must be thinking that how do I get back at them. Well, DON’T!

Why not, you ask? Simple, use that power to think and focus it on something productive. This will lead you to two things. One, you will eventually forgive and forget everything. Two, your focus will divert to more important things such as career rather than getting back at them. But then again I’m sure, you must be saying “easier said than done.”

Following are some of the tricks and tips that might help you get over those plans:

Indulge in some hobby that you love, it will relax your mind and since it would be something you’re really good at then it will definitely make you feel good about yourself. As a result, you will avoid hurting others around you and eventually build up good relations with them. How? You won’t be frustrated and angry about anything and won’t burst out on someone who had nothing to do with the matter.

Find a creative way to polish and improve your hobby by entering a community, gain more knowledge and use it to improvise every day. Connect on social media and engage with other individuals like you and collaborate with them. Trust me, it is fun.

Spend on supplies or maybe earn through your hobby. The choice is yours if you just want to keep going and not monetize your hobby, it’s entirely your decision. But, if you think you’re getting good at it and earn some extra cash, then, why not?

By the time you complete these three simple steps, you will be able to think rationally that was it worth spending my time thinking of something like revenge? you will realize that it’s a waste of time and most importantly bad influence on your health. Even if you don’t engage with your hobbies on a daily basis for at least an hour I’m affirmative that you will find a way to go about that concerned matter. I might have said forget about it but it was just a step to make your mind calm and think rationally about all the good things that are there to do, rather than wasting time on getting back at someone. It’s tough, I know, but not impossible.
