    Is living well really the best revenge?

    Or what are some alternatives that you've used?

    I believe so. If the other person was out to hurt you or disrupt your life and they heard about all the great things happening for you it makes them and their act appear insignificant.
    Oftentimes it's their jealousy and bitterness that will eat at them while watching you laughing and playfully enjoying life. It's not uncommon for exes to claim that you must have never cared about them because you chose not to dwell on them.

    I think so. I do know that I have enough pride if someone hurts me, I am not going to wallow and let them see me pine away...which is something I have always wondered about vengeful exes.  Yes, it hurts but if they don't want you, why act like a fool simply reinforcing their point in leaving you.  It just makes a person look pathetic on top of everything else.

    So move on and if live well -it's good advice.

      I agree. Don't give them the satisfaction of seeing your world crumble because of something (they) did. As is often said: "Fake it until you make it." Eventually the smile you wear will be for real. :-)

    Not really. There are better ways for revenge, but why would you focus on such a negative approach? Are you really still that focused on people you used to have close relations with? The reality is that they have won because you are still focused on them.
