If there is anything that has been around a long time in human life, it is the concept of revenge. Revenge is carrying out the desire to harm another for the wrong done to oneself. Why do people seek revenge? What do YOU gain from getting revenge? That is the real question. Everyone has a moment in life where someone does them wrong, and they want to get back at the person who is responsible. Although this a common reaction among everyone, revenge is not always a good way to solve a dispute. Many people seek revenge to feel superior, to show that they are not scared.
