Get even or move on?

January 20: Are you holding a grudge? About?

Nope, no grudges for me.  As I get older, I’m realizing that, in most cases, holding a grudge is a waste of time. Tossing and turning at night, and marinating in resentment, only causes me stress and not the one I begrudge.

Carrying a grudge turns you into a negative and bitter person.  And it holds you back.  I’m not suggesting that you adopt a mai pen lai (never mind) mentality, but rather tackle the problem before it festers into a grudge.  However, I do realize that some wrongs cannot and should not be forgiven.  In those cases, stop holding a grudge, and get even….or move on.  Keep in mind that getting even takes a lot of time and energy, if you want to do it right.  So, why not invest that energy in making yourself a better you?  In the end, that is the best revenge.
