“We often do things out of spite – sometimes just to spite ourselves. When we are feeling better about things, we usually come to regret those moments when we acted out of some negative feeling or patterning. What good comes from banging your head against a wall? Have you ever seen someone become so angry that they actually punched a wall? Later, while nursing a broken hand, what seemed to you, at the time, like an excellent way to vent your frustration is no longer such an appealing option.
In fact, anything you do while operating in an “I’ll show them” mode or mindset, is coming from a part of you that you definitely do not want running your life! These angry outbursts often seem like genuinely righteous acts of vengeance; but think about that for a moment. There is no such thing as righteous vengeance. Vengeance, for any reason, is harmful to you – whether it accomplishes its intended goal of harming the other person, or not. Is that really how you want to be living your life? Does that really sound like a good plan to get ahead or to get anything that you want out of life?”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
