Truthful Tuesday — Holding a Grudge

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.

    I hope grudges, but for some reason I have issues with doing so with one person in particular, even though they have constantly betrayed me

    I have to admit I’m way too lazy to keep holding a grudge for a long time. I just cut the person off (or if I must speak to them, such as for work, keep it strictly professional) and move on. But I’m definitely not anybody’s role model nor should I be.

    I agree with your viewpoint. Leave me alone if all you want to do is hurt me.
