Will taking revenge on someone I hate make me free of that person?
To finally get back at someone who hurt you and hurt them back. To be free of anger, hate and vengeance?. Because forgiveness is very hard for me.

No, the last thing you want to do is be like them. Then they'll really be in your head! You don't have to forgive, just accept that there are a$$holes in this world and we learn from them what not to be. You are better than the person who hurt you, and the skills of being a civilized person will pay off in the long run. If you continue to have such fantasies, see a therapist, because you're really in way becoming your own bully by thinking about this so much.

No peace is better have talk to them on-adult terms.
Perhaps there’s some middle ground you could talk

I have thought it would make me feel better. But it depends how far that revenge goes.

Forgiving frees you, and doesn't excuse the person from responsibility to make amends. It's better than hating.

That just makes the hate go on and on.
What if when the man gets better he has a weapon?
Just forget it.

If lowering yourself to the level of the loser who hurt you makes you feel better then you feel free to be a loser too.
