    I Can't...

    I've been hurt a lot and in the cruelest of ways but I cannot hold a grudge for the life of me. I forgive within a few hours to a day. I want to stay mad but can't.

    Hurtful

    I believe if you talk out  the problem there is absolutely no reason to hold a grudge. Grudges are not helpful. The grudge you may hold is only hurtfully to yourself.

    Can't Remember

    I often find myself holding a grudge for 4 hours tops. I usually forget about it and move on in my life

    Holding

    I know what you folks mean about holding a grudge.  I tried to hold one once and the damned thing bit me.  They are really nast things to try to hold.  Hold one and it will bite you every time.  I gave up on holding grudges - too much chance of injury.

    True

    I can be exetremely explosive when angry about something, but i can never hold a grudge. I couldn't be bothered really. And I always forgive, i just don't forget.

    I Can, But.

    Well, I suppose I can, but I really try not to. Life is too damn short, and the way I see it, any energy spent on someone who's wronged me is energy wasted and if there's one thing I hate, that's wasted energy. Best believe, I am one lazy mutha fukka. That, and I don't have the...
