People who hold grudges, who never stop talking about those who have wronged them, let their anger rule their lives. Those they are angry at may not care or even be aware of the grudge.
“But our anger is justified,” we argue. Maybe, but does this justify the self-damage inflicted by holding on to and nursing the hurt? How many times must we bore our friends with another recounting of the injustice we’ve suffered? How much longer must we let our anger sour our outlook on life?
Buddha once said, “holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”Share on Facebook
