The Wonders of Sweet, Sweet Revenge




















I never believed in revenge and would not take it, but when it happened of its own accord, it was sweeter than I could have imagined. Sweet, sweet revenge at its recognized moment is sweeter than any soft touching ever felt. Even sweeter than chocolate is the rich sweetness of revenge given to you without asking, trying, plotting, inquiring, requesting, expecting, ever, ever questioning or posing a revenge.

You spend an inordinately large amount of time sucking it up; agonizing, despairing, and feeling hopeless, desolate and so very miserable at the way things turned out. How can a person, you wonder, have such a bad heart to put a hole in yours, so huge it has taken decades to fill and quick as a wink, it is over and revenge is yours.

I realize that the person, whose heart and mind can hurt you, can heal you as well. As the revenge occurred, I could not share it with anyone and still cannot give you any details to this day. Not only can I not give you details of the revenge, I realize I still cannot give you details of the kill. I spent days sitting in the sunlight trying to shake it. Trying to come alive again after all of that bleeding. I was weak and very, very sad. Days past and I couldn’t even get mad. I pulled myself out of the hole, never, ever to go in it again.

The moment I understood the pain was gone and the hurt was over, a ray of bright light surrounded me. I guess the curative bright light potion was just for me because in the room filled with others, I was the only one surrounded by the light. Sweet, sweet revenge is bright surrounding light, soothing pats and hugs. It is an elevation of great proportions. You will never be the same again because you have been lifted. The perpetrator will never know I was in a hole, never know my pain, will never know my light and my elevation. Thank you God for this gift of blameless, guiltless, sweet, sweet revenge.

    Oh hello,
    I did not want to scare. I only wanted to let you know the glory of being set free.
    I can tell you a little more person to person. But did
    Not wish to make it too pointed. The person has no idea or do they? It originally happened a long, long time ago. The saving graces are recent.

    Sheila, revenge: how sweet it must’ve been. Very well written! I wonder how many of us have felt the same feelings?I promised you a packet of cards that I did many many years ago, and Jim is a mailing them to you as I sit here now in the car. We are both still very weak. Even my friend and Dr. has caught this again. It hits the elderly very very hard. Be careful who you hang around with and take care of yourselves. Where is the picture come from? Is it yours?Love you and hope you have a good time tomorrow night. Love Diane and Jim

      So many of us have the same feelings. We identify with each other and can talk about how to sooth our feelings with each other.
      It did really feel so good and I did not have to hurt her back. All the glory was mine. She suffers not.
      In advance thank you for sending cards. Now you get to feeling better right quick, you hear. Oh the photo is of a drawing I made and then used the filter on photoshop to exaggerate the figure. I really liked the final results.
      Get well,

    Wow….you are so right on….When it happened to me, I always tried to forgive and then the sweetness came on it’s own and I just sat in a warm feeling and tried not to gloat over this happening….G-d took care of it

      Ellen, The sweetness does come alone and it is up to you to catch it. Right?
      I know the feelings of gloat and try not to have them in my life as well. Thank you for reading and understanding.
      Some people have tried to figure out who and what. Some got dang close. But all and all I also thank God for taking good care of me.

    How did I miss this one, Sheila? I have encountered a bully so trust is difficult. I must protect myself and know that a bully is always a bully. I leave the forgiving to God who is Trust. How therapeutic to write that last line.
    Thank you Sheila.
