Man is a vindictive creature, in many ways. The Word of God says "vengeance is mine, says the Lord." Man is not supposed to take revenge on anyone, regardless of how reasonable the reasons may seem. And in this instance, it such a flagrant waste of money that nobody can be justified. That money could have been spent on starving children anywhere around the world.
Yes, people tend to be too focused on revenge. Revenge is never good. It leads people to harbor negative feelings for long periods of time. However, stories like this may be less about revenge and more about challenging oneself to be different and then to show your accomplishment later. This particular story is funny.
Sure if the person couldn't afford to pay for their loved ones of course they are going to be disappointed.
Well that goes on that individual who made the commitment but couldn't deliver, is that something new? No. It's nothing new.
It' just that people in relationships people judge and test their relationships on the sole purpose of commitment. Lack of or too much often results in breakups and separation.
As for people having to be too focused or vengeful over their past relationships, people get too drawn into their own suffering that they feel they need to justify their actions in order to be morally right.
To feel to need to compete is too much for someone to bear, why bother competing at all just to be better than your partner?
If that's what relationships are all about, it's not something for everyone can handle.
Is the person who couldn't afford a ticket bad? No just that they overcommited but under performed, that is circumstantial it doesn't mean the person is bad it just that at the time they had to deal with different outcomes and when they were younger they had limited capacity.
Surely since then they have wised up, is that a bad thing? Not necessarily, are relationships too much for people to handle. Yes if you are one that are independent on your own mind and you don't like the idea of others helping you when you are better to help yourself.
I don't believe that this man was focused on revenge. I believe this gesture was more for himself than anyone else. It must have been humiliating for him to be dumped by a girl for being too poor. Years later, I believe that he wanted to prove to himself that he was worth something and that he had become successful.
Many people experience adversity in life. The man that was dumped by a woman for being too poor to take her to the movies was definitely motivated by that event. Years later, to prove his success, he booked several IMAX theaters in Beijing to show off his wealth. Therefore, it can be said that those like this man enjoy getting revenge for past slights in life. However, there is nothing wrong with being motivated by revenge as long as it will create a good outcome one day.
