Marléne Rose ShawWhen I was younger I thought it had merit. But as I became more aware of energy, I started to question how anything with an intention of revenge could be a positive thing? I still hear it a lot though.
Donna BentonInteresting question! I don't think 'revenge' is a positive term, but if you turn a negative situation into a success, then this is the best form of empowerment. I was once in a relationship where his parents didn't think I was good enough for their son, partly because I didn't have a degree! Well, a long time after we split up I didn't just get a degree, I got a Masters too! A kind of 'revenge', but more about proving to myself, "Aha, I was good enough after all." He turned out not o be good enough for me! By the way...he didn't have a degree...just snobs for parents.
Marléne Rose ShawI think maybe 'taking revenge through success' is a good start for living a more positive life. Then we can move on to the next stage of being successful, purely for happiness' sake. These days I try to simply focus on love and a successful life. We never stop learning though do we 🙂
Oge OkosiemeAlso i think in many cases the need for revenge is our desire to restore our self esteem after its been dismantled by someone's actions. In that case success however you define it goes a long way.
So maybe the saying could be
The best way to rebuild your self esteem after a hurtful event is to success <3
Marléne Rose ShawHi Sarah, thanks for your question. This group is about living consciously. It's about personal development and embracing a more loving way of approaching life, for self and others. There is more in the description of the group which you can view on the right hand side. Have a great day :-)
RIP to all those who are losing their lives due to terrorism and war, irrespective of which part of the world they happen to have been born in. May we learn from these painful actions, and use it to mindfully look deeply into ourselves, and become conscious of how we too, can have our own erroneous ways of thinking, ways of judging and creating pain and suffering around us. When we silence our minds, at the centre of our being, rests an indiscriminate wish for all beings to be free from suffering, and live in peace. Let us always stay true to that essence. Love. <3 ...

What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life. ... See MoreSee Less

Marléne Rose ShawIf you were going to invest now in your future best self, where would you put your time and your energy? That question really made me stop and think

Sonya HarveySomething that makes such a difference to so many peoples' lives - a smile, a hug, accepting people as they are, not letting negative things or people spoil your happiness, being thoughtful and kind. Love is part of each of us ❤️
Donna Bentonsimple and complicated. Love can be a cup of tea, a smile, a hug, a kind gesture to a stranger, a night at the theatre, a walk along the Thames, a text to say I care, a tear, a heartbreak...love is what makes us human. X
Sharon HarrisonThought for the day....
When you consciously remember this moment's pain will not last forever, patience arises. Happily, you know the pain will end. When you consciously remember this moment's pleasure will not last forever, compassion arises. Sadly, you know the pleasure will end, too. Whatever the content of your moment, just say "This too shall pass"
