I must be an alien - Getting even
« on: January 12, 2008, 01:03:28 AM »
I do not understand about hate, revenge, vengeance, Avenging, getting even, or anything that goes along those lines. Before you jump to conclusions YES I have been done wrong. Many times. But I can't seem to hold a grudge. I never have a need to get even. In fact, some people that have done me wrong, have come around afterwards and as for a favor. Sure, glad to help. And I don't even bring up how they messed me over. They know. I know they know. They know I know they know.

Doing something to someone... the wrong doer... would not change what has been done. And NO I would not feel better for it. I know because I "got even" with someone in high school once. There was no pain involved and no real damage done. Just a little inconvenience for the guy. But it still bothers me to this day, thirty something years later, that I did what I did. That didn't come out right. It isn't a big deal. It doesn't keep me awake at night. Just every now and then the thought crosses my mind and I really wonder "What was I thinking?"

So earthlings..... Teach me about hate.

Jerry, our time here is too short to be filled with hate. Hate is for those who have not learned yet, that its a waste of time. I'm with you, when's the next ship leave?

I don't hate anyone, even my ex, hate only poisons your soul.  I too cannot hold a grudge.  But I don't confuse this with the thought of justice.  If someone does something heinous to me or mine then I do want them punished - it's just not up to me to dole out that punishment.

Justice was my very next one. Watch for it.
This one just had to come first.

Not if "they" beat me to it.  Society has the responsibility, unfortunately they often abuse it by letting the guilty go free and the incarcerate the innocent.  Having been a witness in more than 1 criminal trial, I can't believe what some people will accept or rastionalize as/into truth.

Well, society has taken over the responsibility, I guess.  If I were to walk into a room where someone was doing something heinous to someone I love and I had my gun on me they wouldn't make it out of the room - but then in this sorry state I live in I have to suffer the consequences  :roll:  It may be worth the price, it may not be, it all depends on the circumstances.....
