An Eye for An Eye

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Pride oh good ol’ pride. I have pride, you have pride - everyone has pride hence why the first thing that comes to our mind, even for a fraction of a second, when we’re hurt, is revenge.
The good feeling we receive, from exercising our revenge, is usually short lived. We tell ourselves that we should of been the better person and let it go.

What is revenge but a futile pursuit to get even with someone? Why does revenge sounds like the proper course of action when it truly isn’t? What usually happens, when we get back at someone, is a feeling of emptiness. When will we learn that the strongest man isn’t the one that seeks revenge but the one that can forgive?
