Revenge is a dish best served cold... and left up to God to carry out. That is my personal philosophy.
I have a brother-in-law who is a major creep. I was buying a house from my mother-in-law... no contract... shame on me. This guy and my sister-in-law got power of attorney for her and took my house. I'd lived there for 15 years and paying on it. I cannot tell you how devastating that was. This happened when my ex was sent to camp... when I was still in shock and easily victimized. I know my faith in husband's mother was lame, but in my family we do not screw each other. I did not see that as possible. Dummy me.
Well, you can fill your life with vile and bile and spew hate, but it hurts you... not the people who screw you. Besides, being the bad catholic that I am... I pick and choose from the Bible what I wish to live by. One of the things I choose to believe is that vengeance belongs to God, not us. If you let it go and give it to God that eventually some sort of Karma occurs.
The big Karma kick back has finally happened. I just learned that my brother-in-law had the stupidity to rob a bank... and get caught when someone finked him out after seeing the video. Here is the real bug-a-boo... a different sister-in-law and the robber's daughter both work for the banking institution that he robbed. Now how totally stupid is that!
I can't say that I am sorry that this happened. Truth be told, I do not feel a grain of sympathy for the man. You reap what you sow and all that. (Of course I do not believe that all bad things that happen are because someone deserves them... no way. Good people are crushed by life all the time unwarranted.) But in this case, I feel it is just desserts. All I can say is don't drop the soap guy!
