It seems every time I write my opinion for everyone to read, I lean towards talking about lessons in life; helping one another, living life to the fullest, being thankful, having a passion and so on. I think I do this because I feel these are things that should be done in life, after all you were given this life for a reason, why not make it a good one.
So to continue the pattern I have started, the topic for today is holding grudges.
Don’t get me wrong, I have had some bitter confrontations in life so far and I wanted to hold grudges and even did for a short period of time. I learned very quickly though that it was not worth it. It was not worth not talking to someone or being upset with them.
Most people that know me tell me I am wise beyond my years when it comes to life. For the most part, I agree. I take situations and events that happen in my life and turn them into a lesson from which I learn. Holding grudges was a lesson I learned early. I missed that person that I held a grudge against, I wanted to talk to them, but anger kept me from that. Like I said, it didn’t last long though. I realized that life is too short to be immature. You never know when something will happen that could turn your world upside down. We never know when we have talked to someone for the last time. Make sure to tell someone how you truly feel. It is a waste of time and energy to hold animosity. Don’t live with hate in your heart, your only hurting yourself. You may find that your life might become so wrapped up in the wrong that you can’t enjoy the present.
