Don’t get mad OR even
If someone does us wrong getting mad, demanding to get even, isn’t going to get us anywhere.
Instead we need to allow the anger, acknowledge the desire for revenge, but then take a deep breath and realise that all we’re likely to do is make the situation worse, irretrievably damage the relationship and increase our own stress levels.
There is no point to drawing out bad experiences. Draw a line, be contented and move on.
