Revenge is one of those subjects that few people admit to thinking about and even fewer people admit to ever doing. Society encourages people to “take the high road” when harm is inflicted upon them by another person or people — seeking revenge is seen as childish at best, and criminal, at worst. But is there any reason a person should seek revenge, or any instance when revenge is necessary?
I believe that revenge is never truly necessary but sometimes is understandable. It is only human to want to protect oneself from harm and to use any means that is necessary to do that. Including inflicting harm upon someone who has hurt you or will hurt you. It is not essential that a person do this, but to react in vengeful ways is natural and therefore not anything to hide.
What do you think of revenge? Have you ever taken revenge and do you think it was justified? Are there any cases in life when taking revenge is warranted?
