Don't hold grudges

I loved this quote as so many people do hold grudges and because of that they can’t get on with their lives and it actually holds them back. Forgive those who you hold a grudge against, because I’ll make best they have long forgotten why you are holding the grudge!

Have a blessed Sunday everyone!

My dad held grudges for most of his life now he's in ill health.  I love my dad but things that make you go hmmmmmm.  Grudges are not good for anybody. Thanks as always for posting, it's a good life.

Hi Todd, I learned the true value of not holding a grudge years ago when I became a born again believer. It actually helps you get on with your life. I could never understand why so many would want to be bitter for such a long time.

Hi Todd,

 You are so right and I thought your post was very inspirational. I sure all of us get upset with others as we are human but we must learn to forgive, let go of the anger and move on. Thanks for the reminder.

I think a lot of what holds us back is the unforgiveness we hold toward others. Very wise quote.

Todd, the only person a grudge hurts is the person who holds one.  I am harder on myself than I am on anyone else.  Forgiveness starts with us and ends with us.

Remember one can choose to get bitter over something negative or one can choose to get better.  I choose better.

I agree wholeheartedly. Holding grudges really only hurts the one who holds the grudge. I often say that forgiveness is really for the benefit of the forgiver. Have a great week Todd.

Todd, have you heard the one about how you can tell when an Irishman has Alzheimers?  He forgets his grudges!  Actually, they take up way too much energy.

I've never been stung by a bee, but I have to imagine it would not be fun to be stung several times.
