Revenge is sweet, so they say. From my point of view from a fresh break-up, I'd agree with that statement. I know I'm not the only person in the world that has had their heart broken by the person they loved. The bottom line is, it's tough. But we all have to go through with it and move on with our lives.
I don't know about any of you, but a big part of me wants to squash my ex-SO. Give him what he so rightly deserves: a taste of his own medicine. Revenge.
But deep down, I know that crazy ideas e.g) Dating one of his best friends won't make things any better. In fact, it'll only show that I'm just as low as he is. The break-up may have hurt me, but doing irrational things like that just isn't right. Yesterday, while I was discussing my break up with one of my co-workers she said "The best revenge you can take, is to have a good life." She also mentioned one more thing: dating other people can also be a hefty blow.
How many of you agree? I'm very interested to hear the perspective of the people who broke up with their SO, and the people who were dumped by their SO. Do you think that your personal feelings with your ex-SO can affect your reaction? e.g) What if you broke up with your SO, because you no longer felt anything for them. But you find out they're dating someone else?
