Holding a grudge is defined as hanging on to intense anger or dislike for someone based upon a real or perceived wrongdoing. If you have ever beheld a grudge, you can probably attest to the resulting harm that occurs. Like a plant, grudges fertilely grow. Unquestionably, the process can produce physical and psychological repercussions. Stress is bound to occur. Keeping another person’s acts of wrongdoing in your mind is unhealthy. Letting go of the associated anger and dislike is the antidote; the needed cure. It places you on the road to recovery as does forgiveness. Besides why waste your valuable time and personal space possessed with negative thoughts of others when undoubtedly they may not be thinking of you; not even remotely? Though difficult it may be, release yourself, forgive, and move on to greener pastures. You deserve the freedom that it will yield. Your mind, body, and soul will thank you!
