The interesting thing about being in a relationship, is realising that you have a choice…every.single.day….to love, respect, hate, push away or hold a grudge against the person that you say you love.
I have known some people who are impressive grudge holders. You know the kind that make a person’s life miserable for more than 10 minutes, we’re talking days. DAYS! I find the energy that is needed to maintain that sort of commitment to insuring that someone knows you’re pissed off at them…highly impressive
(gruhj) : a feeling of ill will or resentment: to hold a grudge against a former opponent.
I had a moment today when I could have been really angry at someone who I loved. It was a simple thing, something where I felt annoyed and frustrated with a lack of oversight. I had a choice: be super pissed off and make a situation bigger than it needed to be -or- say my frustrations and move on.
….then it hit me. how often have I held a grudge against myself?
For me it has been a constant source of frustration…my inability to let go of the ill feelings I have about my body. I have held a grudge against myself. As I embark into this new year, as many of us do, we have to make sure that we’re not holding a grudge against ourselves.
….how much energy are you holding in a grudge against yourself?
It was interesting, because I released the grudge against the person in my life, because I wanted to show love and respect. What I am working on is exactly the same thing…but to myself.
Let go of the grudge…
