The psychology of revenge

For most of us, acting vengefully never gets past the fantasy stage; our rational minds kick in, along with our moralcompasses, and perhaps our fear of continued reprisal. While we still may be angry, we choose instead to move on with our lives, either in full stride or with a noticeable limp. We don’t send an email to his boss about all the lies he’s told or that his expenses are bogus.  We decide against getting word to her new boyfriend about what a scheming, faithless, manipulator she is. We give up on elaborate plans like rounding up his former disgruntled clients so we can try to get him disbarred or lose his realtor license. Revenge may be sweet, as the saying going, but most of us settle for eating bon bons or perhaps buying a voodoo doll to stick pins in.
