27.06.2001 - Interpretation of dali48
Revenge is an everyday occurrence for almost every human being. And often people are amazed that they react less tolerant than they would have expected from them - including themselves - The best revenge is to have a good time... - Quite quietly, but extremely effective, the indifferent person frustrates people by not listening to them, ignoring their needs and forgetting wishes, making them feel as disturbing intruders, denying them praise or feelings, retiring psychologically or physically... - We have all experienced this form of revenge - Every time we have to face a government agency or must trigger our towed car... - In many cases (of revenge), men learn to trigger fear - while women work with guilt feelings... (R. Barreca)
