Revenge vs Justice: What’s the difference?

When I first started my research on the difference between revenge and justice, I knew the answer I was looking for. I found that answer, but was hesitant to align myself fully with it. The problem was that the opposing side had some good points too. The opposing side made me see myself in all my emotional rawness, inspiring a different article entirely. It is one that feels awkward to share, because it portrays me at my most vulnerable, but I believe that honesty is the path to healing, and more than anything, I want healing. Perhaps I want peace and healing more than I want revenge, or justice. The ideal would be to obtain peace and healing through revenge or justice. But since I’ve determined that revenge and justice may simply be out of my grasp, perhaps I’m willing to accept peace and healing instead. Let’s figure it out together, shall we?
