I find doing what Joseph did in this chapter very hard to do. After all his troubles with his brothers, like being made fun of, getting picked on, and getting sold into slavery, he didn't seek revenge because he saw that all of this was part of God's plan in his life. If his brothers had never sold him, he would have never gone to Egypt. If he had never gone to Egypt, he would never have told Pharaoh of his dreams, and if he never told Pharaoh the meanings of his dreams, there wouldn't have been any food during the seven years of famine. All of this was because of his brothers trying to do him wrong, but instead they were actually part of God's plan to help save the lives of thousands. The point being, even if things look really bad God has a plan even if you don't see it.
