Have you ever benefited from getting "revenge" on an ex?

A bit over-the-top
A bit over-the-top
There are times when a partner betrays you in a way that just puts you into a rage. You want to hurt them in return and make them feel just as bad as you do. I understand the feelings.
But. . . how do you benefit from the revenge, other than maybe feeling better for a brief time? Does revenge undo the fact that they cheated on you? Stole money from you? Told lies about you?

Have you ever gotten revenge on an ex and a year later, you were still happy that you had your revenge? Did you ever feel that getting revenge made you just as low a person as your ex?
Revenge keeps you entangled with your ex instead of moving forward and finding a new partner; maybe that's why some people choose revenge: they don't want to let go!
