"Revenge is a dish best served cold."

vertical line ..not my kind of cup really, try to not involve myself to much with "sht people" (leie mennesker) as called locally, so little to "revenge" anyway. But I do find some people spooky holding that attitude as they can be quick to pass judgment and doubtless in their righteous world view making a mess of their and others life, anyway, please elaborate?

vertical line Revenge means to cling to an event in ones life.
To hold dear a moment in ones life that has a hold on ones emotions.
To seek retribution for acts inflicted upon one.

Although glamourized in the media, there is no freedom in revenge ... no real satifaction.
I hope you find the flip side of revenge which is compassion and mercy.

.........

Then you are focused upon the moment things changed for the worse
And all your thoughts are consumed by your desire for revenge??
Do you see how your thoughts prompt your world?

Well, guess that doesn't matter anymore ... not to you??
I wish you the best ... good luck.
