Melanie, of Sparks from a Combustible Mind, is still filling in for Frank, aka PCGuy, who is taking a temporary hiatus from his Truthful Tuesday prompt. This week Melanie asks…
What’s your opinion of grudge holding?
My opinion of grudge holding? Well, a grudge is “a persistent feeling of ill will or resentment resulting from a past insult or injury.” My philosophy about grudges is fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I do believe in giving someone who disappointed or hurt me a second chance. Maybe even a third if the person is important to me. But beyond that, all bets are off.
Bottom line, though, if a person does something unforgivable to me more than once, that person will be out of my life forever. If that’s holding a grudge, so be it.
