An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth

10% of crimes are committed following this logic or thinking.

These crimes were fueled by hatred and revenge. Which I dare say is one of humanities worst flaws. Revenge can distort our personal perception on how we view the world or an individual. When somebody seeks revenge they are attempting to correct a wrong with another wrong. Which is usually distorted by false truth, like gossip and assumptions. This can blind us from what the actual reality is. However revenge is not black and white, it depends on the reasoning behind it.

For Example, if a man had to cheat on his wife and his girlfriend knew that he was married, that would be a valid reason for the wife to react in a negative way and lets say slap the man and girl, (although it should not be done). However if the girl that he cheated with did not know he was married there is no reason to get slapped or hit. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, should only be done with a valid logical reason if it had to be done at all.
Even if there is a valid reason, you should be able to receive whatever you give out. Things cannot be done without consequence.

It is important to look before you leap as you can very quickly go from being the victim to being the culprit. There is a big difference between a victim/survivor and a culprit. A survivor does not seek revenge that is inhumane but rather a type of revenge that lets the culprit know that he or she will not control or ruin their lives. Its like being happy which would anger someone else who envies that.

The important thing is, for those that do wrong against you, the best kind of revenge is the one that tells them who’s boss.
