    Grudges

    I think grudges are a waste of time and energy...no doubt! For me it all depends what it is.  If it is a smaller thing, I don't keep grudges but if it is something big and hard to swallow, how do you let it go, is it possible letting go?

    Poison

    Carrying around negative energy poisons you after a while.  And that's exactly what a grudge is.  It's a boatload of negativity...that seldom even touches the person it's harbored against.

    Wasted I Tell You, Wasted

    Why the hell would you want to carry a ball and chain on your foot the rest of your life just because your angry at someone? Is it because you feel you can't change what happened? If so, it doesn't matter... you don't have to change the past, just change yourself and make things...

    Life Has to Go On

    "Life is too short. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. So laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Love deeply, and forgive quickly. Life's too short to be unhappy. You have to take the good with the bad, smile when you're...
