Why is forgiveness always better even if it means to forgive the worst person in the world.
Most Helpful Guy
Because forgiveness and revenge are not about doing something to the other person, they are about doing something for yourself.
If you are able to forgive, you will give yourself a positive gift. You can wrap up something and leave it behind you. There is nothing more that connects you to the other person, you are both released from one another.
If you take revenge, you will give yourself something negative. You won't leave it behind you but instead keep it closer to you than ever before. The other person is still in your life after revenge and "getting even" will never feel as good as "getting past".
Sometimes, people don't have the strength to forgive and they have to get revenge because it is all that is in their power to do. Revenge is still better than wallowing in grief (depression = anger without the enthousiasm).1
