Power, Forgiveness and Revenge – a Study

August 17, 2010

What are you more likely to choose- revenge or forgiveness, if you have more power than the other person?

I’ve always thought, that forgiving is what the stronger ones do. It takes a lot of self-confidence, maturity, feeling secure personally and confidence in your self-efficacy. Revenge is more like what you would do in defense, when you’re affected, when you feel threatened and just want to strike back, to show that you have that power. Forgiveness is what you do when you know, that you have that power, that you’re strong enough and don’t feel the need to prove it to someone anymore. That’s a big part of the growing-up process to me.


O Yeah!

It’s official now, I’m a BSc-Psychologist! *dancing* *dancing jumpstyle* *more dancing*

So now I have only min. 2 years to Master (keep your fingers crossed for me to get accepted here or in Konstanz), then only min. 3 years of education in psychotherapy and I’m there! (if I don’t decide to make a PhD too and/or an academic career). O well, enough dancing for a BSc I guess…

But still, the awesome thing about it is, that I’ve made it on my own, I’ve been working stupid jobs the whole time, that always have come first instead of my study and I’m still on time with the BSc and my grades are not that bad, not that bad at all (I guess).  I should be going back to work now 🙂

Good News

So yesterday the secretary of my professor (“my” professor? he’s not like my personal professor, but my tutor or something, you know) send me an e-mail, that he has good news for me and I should contact him.
