Ice: Revenges' Best Friend
Revenge & Karma are two entirely different things...
Riddle me this: What burns like fire, but melts at the sight of it? If you guessed Ice, you would be correct! I was always under the impression that revenge is a dish best served cold. Revenge is defined as the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hands. Our society is filled with people who, whether consciously or unconsciously, wrong others on a day to day basis. Whether it is that woman who cuts you in line at the grocery store, or the lover who cheated on you in your own home while you were busy working, wrong is wrong. There is a special antidote for people of this nature. Those people who enjoy hurting others, and those who go around unconsciously inflicting pain on others for the sake of their own happiness will not get away for long. Karma, although I love her and the way she moves, this is not her job to handle. Unlike revenge, karma works both ways and is defined as destiny or fate, following as effect from cause. You can either receive good or bad karma depending on what you put out into the atmosphere. Revenge is far more rewarding, it has the potential to slice thick air and be discreet enough to leave no wounds. To those of you who do others wrong for no good reason, here’s a glass of ice to go along with that revenge coming your way…enjoy.
It’s sad to say there aren’t many good hearted people in the world. We have conditioned ourselves to be mean, aggressive and violent. We live in a society full of murder, deceit, crime and political injustice it’s almost natural for people to be on defense. Yes, we do live in a hateful world, but not everyone has to be hateful. Some of us are loving, kind, patient, REAL and can still keep a person in check in the most polite way. Sadly, even the kindest people are taken for granted and trampled on by the feet of the ungrateful. Some people (doormats) would just lie there and take the mistreatment as if it was meant for them in the first place. Then you have people like me, who cannot, better yet, will not tolerate any form of disrespect or mistreatment this stage of my life. Granted, I may not blow up at you, or punch you in the face, but I guarantee my mind is working diligently on how to get back at you. It’s the way of life for most people. I happen to be the type of woman who enjoys the mockery of those who don’t believe in me. Its makes me strive for greatness in such a way that it makes them jelly at the sight of my success. When my husband left me, I couldn’t wait for the opportunity to spoon feed his revenge to him. I wanted him to see me looking like a million bucks wrapped in smooth chocolate, and doing better in life. I knew for sure he would feel that ice like burn from the inside out, would you believe he now wants his Queen back?…ahhh sweet delectable revenge!
It’s time to take a stand people! Either you are going to allow people to mistreat you or you are going to do something about. Don’t get me wrong!! I do not condone violence or encourage you to pistol whip your boss. These actions will most likely and undoubtedly land you in jail. There are more ways than one to seek out revenge on someone who has done you wrong or who has spoken ill of you. Just think about it. Most people treat you bad because they either know, or feel you will not do anything about it. People who purposely try to tear you down with their words actually want to pull a reaction out of you. They want you to go bananas in a public place so you could embarrass yourself, and then they would have the right to say, ‘See, I told you she was crazy.’ It’s an old saying but I live by this creed till this day; “never let em see you sweat”. You confuse people when you do not react in the way they would expect for you to react. When people are confused they do one of two things, ask questions or leave the situation alone all together. People who are purposely trying to upset you will never ask you, ‘why aren’t you mad’? They would hate to blow their own cover. Most times they will just leave you alone, because they do not know what to expect from a person they do not understand. This is powerful knowledge. Just knowing how to bypass the ignorance of others is the first step.
Truthfully people will love you until you seem like you’re doing better than them. The shade and hate that stems from jealousy has the foulest stench known to man. You never fight fire with fire…that will only create a bigger fire! If they are jealous, laugh! You aren’t that rich anyway. If they treat you poorly, meditate! You are better than what they think of you to be. The best way to get revenge on ANY person who treats you less than what you deserve to be treated is personal and ultimate SUCCESS. Oh yes I went there! So many people counted me out, they would flash their mirage of a lavish lifestyle in my face and laugh when I couldn’t afford to do what everyone else was doing. I’ve had people talk bad about me and not even know me. I have family who look me in the face and pretend they do not who I am. I’ve had friends who betrayed me for men. Women far older than me are intimidated by my carefree demeanor and use their age & power to belittle me as an adult. Hell, my own husband left me for another woman. Not once did I load up my double barrel. Not once did I inflict the same hurt they did to me. Not once did I form my mouth to disrespect my elders because Karma is real & I knew in my hearts of hearts that revenge was on its way.
Being out of the public eye and away from family and friends, allowed me the right amount of time and space to work diligently on becoming a better woman. Yes, I am doing this for myself, but also for the people who pray for my demise and silently wish for my downfall. I kept quiet about my actions, and would only speak to people I could trust (I can count on 1 hand the people I trust). It wasn’t my time to come forward because I was still in the purging process. That hurt and embarrassment I received from countless people who meant the world to me settled somewhere deep in my heart & my memory refuses to let me forget what they have done/said to me. Forgiveness is one thing, I have to be right with GOD. However, I simply cannot forget. I worked hard, I cried when no one was looking, and I decided to prepare the dish they despised the most…sweet but bitter, cold revenge.
It’s easy to offer hate for hate. But that’s what’s wrong with our society now! Everyone is so busy trying to one up each other and hurt one another no one is really making any progress. I used to think Joliet, IL was the only town in America referred to as ‘crabs in a bucket’. Growing older I realize there are crabs in every corner of the earth! Nothing about life (excluding little babies) is sweet. It’s ok to guard yourself from the wiles of the enemy. Never back down from a debate, but with that, learn how to use your words carefully and wisely. My mom still tells me to this day, Kris, you need to think before you speak. Will the words you produce add to the fire, or will your words put the fire out? Remember this, people who treat you poorly, feel poorly about themselves otherwise they wouldn’t go around trying to ruin everyone else’s life just because theirs is a hot mess. These kind of people you have to outsmart, out think, and be ten steps ahead of at all times. When seeking revenge make sure your intentions are in the right place. It is a known fact that two wrongs, don’t make a right, it just makes two wrongs. The universe will provide the leverage you need to be successful when your heart is in the right place.
Revenge, for all the people who has done you wrong or has made you suffer, when you were nothing but good to them. For all the people who laughed at your dreams and mocked your determination. Even for the loud mouth chick who stole your parking space at Walmart, yes she can get it too! The dark place inside of us would want to offer evil for evil, but it is imperative to denounce that spirit. Remember also, hurt people hurt people. Use all that negativity as the ingredients for you special dish of revenge. Psalms 23:5 ‘Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.’ Now I am not overly religious, but I do believe. I believe that God will set your table in such a way that it is displayed for your enemies to see. So much so, that your cup runs over, which means you have plenty or more than enough. Vengeance is mine saith the Lord! Yes, you can shoot your neighbor for purposely stepping on your rose bushes, but that won’t bring you satisfaction. You can sleep with your ex’s best friend, but you’re going to feel cheap. The only thing that will hurt a person who takes pleasure in hurting you is your SUCCESS. They expect you to crumble under pressure, they want you to faint at the sight of adversity. I dare you to defy the odds! That’s right, get up and show them whose boss. They think you can’t do it? Prove them wrong and do it anyway! He thinks you can’t find anyone better than him, get fly one time and watch all the bachelors flock. It’s so refreshing to see the look on their face when that ice cold revenge hits them right where it hurts. It’s a cold world, and the game just got colder. Sometimes you have to take a step back and evaluate to see a situation for what it really is…
But as for revenge it is a dish best served cold…Ice cold that is! Have a bite & enjoy watching my success! I know you hate it but eat it anyway…I made it just for YOU!
