Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.
When you hold a grudge, you want someone else’s sorrow to reflect your level of hurt but the two rarely meet.
Let today be the day you stop being haunted by the ghost of yesterday. Holding a grudge & harboring anger/resentment is poison to the soul. Get even with people...but not those who have hurt us, forget them, instead get even with those who have helped us.
Let today be the day you finally release yourself from the imprisonment of past grudges and anger. Simplify your life. Let go of the poisonous past and live the abundantly beautiful present... today.
I hold a strict policy of automatic grudges against people everyone likes.
I think deeply about things and want others to do likewise. I work for ideas and learn from people. I don’t like excluding people. I’m a perfectionist, but I won’t let that get in the way of publication. Except for education and entertainment, I’m not going to waste my time on things that won’t have an impact. I try to be friends with everyone, but I hate it when you don’t take me seriously. I don’t hold grudges, it’s not productive, but I learn from my experience. I want to make the world a better place.
Life is too short for long-term grudges.
I've always hated the idea of carrying grudges and resentments around like a load of mouldy suitcases.
