Why do we always have to take the high road? What good does it do for us?

Anonymous
I always find myself in situations where I end up hurt. I always have tried my best to take the high road, but this time I'm quite sick of it and now I want to hurt this guy who hurt me. I keep wondering, what is the point of taking the high road?

Do you take the high road or do you get back at those who hurt you? Why does it matter? It doesn't seem to have made a difference for me. I find it makes me angry to "go quietly". Everyone always tells me "don't let the other person know how much they hurt you". But why not?
