Love and hatred, peace and war. In either case, the latter seems to take priority while taking decisions. Its incredible how people seem to think that revenge is a very justifiable excuse to all their actions(crimes). It doesn’t matter to what lenghts they may have to go to fulfill their desire for revenge and its extremely appalling how people find ways and means of turning the smallest of instances as motives for their revenge and nurture hatred.
It doesn’t matter to them what the consequences of their action might be. They find momentary satisfaction when they see the fruits, borne by their hatred. It seems like they lose all their capacity to think and understand anything in a calm and rational way.They always seem to think that revenge will see to it that everthing is squared.
There’s an anime, “Girl from Hell”. Its about how the “Hell Girl” takes revenge for you and takes the person you want revenge from to hell, forever. For this to happen, you have to access the hotline to hell website at midnight and enter the name of the person you want revenge from. Then the “Hell Girl” comes and gives you a black straw doll with a red string tied around its neck. She tells you that if you pull the string the person who’s tormenting you will immediately be taken to hell. But she also warns you that since she’s doing this for you, you need to make a payment to her, so when you die you will be taken to hell immediately and you will stay there forever, not knowing what paradise is like. (Please don’t try any of this stuff. You could get me into trouble if you do 🙂 )
But think about it, is it really worth pulling that string? Even if it would mean that the person you hate would go to hell; because you end up in the same place as the person. So in a way, doesn’t it make you just like the person? When you can’t handle the torture here on earth do you think you could when your in hell? And when its for eternity? I’m no genius, but even I know that eternity is a long long time.Is it really worth it? Vengeance is one thing but can you live with yourself knowing you sent someone to hell and that they’re being tortured there at this very moment? Won’t you hear their screams inside your head?
People do crazy things without realising what they’re doing, all for revenge. But if you do take revenge, do you get back whatever it is that you lost? People become what they’re not, trying to take revenge. Is it really worth losing yourself for revenge? Look at it this way, is the person you want to take revenge from worth changing yourself for? People lose themselves ,their lives, everything they have and is precious to them.But what do they get in return? Happiness? Whatever it was that they lost? Salvation?
But if you’ve noticed they lose much more than that……….
When one person is cursed two graves are dug!
