Sometimes in life, people will do the most awful things to you. They will outright lie about you, take advantage of you, use your weaknesses as an opportunity to advance themselves or their ego, try to destroy you through gossip, blame, shame or violence. What’s a person to do? Should we seek revenge on them? Should we expose them for who they really are? Should we set the record straight? OR Should we be the better person and let go of their attempt to gain power over you. Let it go. These types of people are a lesson in your story. They give you experience. Feel sorry for them, they must try and hurt others in order to feel good about themselves. OR Simply, they do not have feelings and do not know the difference between wrong and right. The challenge is being the better person. Letting go of one’s ego is difficult to be sure, but can be done if we make it a choice. It is still difficult to let go of the feelings of revenge, but it is a disservice to yourself to let those people have that much power over you. In a hundred years who is going to care? Why not enjoy life instead of harbouring grudges. The best revenge sometimes is success and happiness.

Yes. The best revenge is to be successful and happy. Let your tormentor self-destruct in envy and jealousy.

Well said. The main exception depends on who is saying what to whom. A fellow emploee told my Boss that I was being unhelpful and not doing my job correctly. He was in fact hiding his own incompetence. If I hadn't said anything in my defense, he could have cost me my job. Bottom Line: Know when to shut your mouth and also.. when to open it (lol). Best wishes, Dave :^)
