a thought for you.

grudge-holding sucks.

i thought i wasn't capable of holding grudges.
but i often find myself 
bringing back something that happened in the past.

a rude comment from someone,
someone incredibly betraying me,
little stupid meaningless things like that.

i am now completely letting go.

i have this philosophy of all those who have wronged me in the past..
i am moving on.
 i am forgiving.
and i'm letting it go.

if you stay mad at someone,
they probably won't even know about it.
it's only hurting you.

a few of my friends in college wronged me pretty dang good.

i can choose to hate them forever for it.
or just let it go..
forgive.
and move on with my life.

i choose option 2.



you deserve much better anyway.

  4. I've heard it said that holding a grudge is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies. Way to go with moving on and moving up! <3

  6. this was beautifully written. i love that quote! and it's true.. the older i get i have decided that it takes way too much energy to hold a grudge. it is so much easier to just let it go and move on with life.

  7. I love the little quote you put on here about holding grudges hurting you more than they hurt someone else- I think that's soo true. I feel so much better when I choose to let things go. I think if you ever run into that person, things end up being more awkward for THEM when you've let things go.
    I loved this post!

    Thanks for letting me grab your blog button too! It's up on my blog as of now :)

  8. I was hurt pretty badly from some college friends too. It took me a few years to actually let it go! It's so much better once you can finally do that! :) Now the whole thing seems silly...

  9. Such a wonderful reminder! One that I need to apply to my life quite seriously right now. Really, grudges are only hindering the person who is holding them. It's not like the other person is going to be aware of the grudge.
