Wanting to get revenge on an ex brings out the worst in people, because it's very, very personal. You slept with the person, lived with them, shared all of your worst secrets and deepest dreams with them. So when you feel betrayed, it pretty much destroys your faith in humanity and any hopes for future happiness.
The key is to try and keep your enthusiasm for life by doing things you love and going after what you know you need to do as an individual to be happy. And sometimes that means getting violent in the right direction, whether it's going hard in the gym, kicking ass at work, or finally taking up that hobby and going at it with full force so you can finally get close to mastering something in your life.
Getting violent in the wrong direction is always, a bad, bad idea. Like don't elaborately plan the death of your ex. And don't go and set their car on fire.
Because in your blind rage at your ex, you might just end setting fire to the wrong car, like this woman did.
19-year-old Florida woman, Carmen Chamblee was caught on camera setting fire to a white Honda Accord.
She thought she was blazing the car of an ex-boyfriend, but it actually belonged to a complete stranger.
Poor Thomas Jennings was told by his roommate that his car was on fire. He then ran outside and tried putting the fire out with a pot of water. Which was probably a really funny sight.
Less funny, was the second-degree arson charge Jennings was stuck with as a result of trying to light up her ex's ride. That guy must be thanking his lucky stars that his former girlfriend has such a bad memory when it comes to the make and model of vehicles.
