“Heaven Has No Rage…”

People often say, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” This is true in many cases. I recall seeing many screaming and crying fits being had by my more “popular” high-school acquaintances when an inevitable break-up occurred. Some people never get past high-school histrionics, but that’s another topic for another day.

The way the quote is used, contextually, places the emotional over-reaction solely on the woman. This is because the quote is rarely stated in full.

Here is the full quote:

When put into full context, the quote becomes equal. Men who have been scorned by the object of their affection are just as likely as women to rant endlessly over “the one that got away.”

The “love” that they felt towards their purchased trophy becomes mindless rage when said trophy is placed on the shelf of another, and this goes both ways.

The difference isn’t based on male vs. female, though. The response is solely based on the emotional maturity of the individual.

The adult gets over it and moves forward. The child throws a mindless tantrum.

That’s how one separates the men from the boys and the women from the girls. Wise and thoughtful introspection vs. a childish reaction.
