Sense of vindication is a devastating feeling along with consequences such as slander, blackwash, negative criticism, and alienation. But this feeling does not come into being by itself. This emotion that is based on weakness occurs after revenge and continuity of jealousy. People who are hurt and injured yearn for revenge, but in many cases they cannot fulfill this desire because of their weakness. On the other hand, people envy many values. Many people want to have values such as beauty, power, influence, success, intelligence, wealth, splendor, fortune.Yet their weakness prevents them to reach thes evalues. They envy these values and those who hold them and this jealousy becomes vindication with the consciousness that they will never reach these values. Vindication is a feeling that affects people relation with truth, values and other people. The person who is poisoned sense of vindication turns into a man of vindication. The man of vindication first denies the values due to the effect of this poison, then falsifies them and eventually reverses them and obtains a system of values that is totally different from the beginning. The relationship between this person and the truth is also problematic. This person is in both blindness an dillusion against both his position and his values, and also against the events about the situation of others. While deceiving himself in order to preserve his perception of self-respect, he denies the value of others and sees things differently than they are. The basic relationship that this person develops with the help ofsense of vindication is hostility to other.
