It does not pay to hold a grudge against someone. You might of unknowingly said or did something that started the grudge. Holding a grudge will prevent you from moving on with your life in a positive manner.
Holding ill will against someone is not good for your health and general well being. Talk over the situation with the party you have the grudge with to see if you can resolve the problem easily and quickly. Did you go into the situation with clean hands and if not why wouldn’t the other party be mad at you. Did you insult them or insure them in some way ? If you can answer yes then apologize for what you said or did to them.
A grudge can cause many sleepless nights for you and the other party involved. Sometimes it is just best to let bygones be bygones and move forward in life. Did a third party start the ball rolling just to injure you and the other party involved ? You must always consider the source before you come to a false conclusion that was just based on lies or circumstances at the present time.
If God held a grudge none of us would get to heaven because we are all sinners. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so that we may live again in the kingdom of heaven. We should always be willing to forgive people and move forward and build a stronger bond with them.
Sometimes things get completely twisted around or taken out of context. If a friend, acquaintance, business or someone else has insulted or hurt you try to figure out why. Try to come to an agreement or understanding that both parties can live with. Apologize if you have hurt or insulted someone. Sometimes situations cannot be resolved regrettably but at least try. I hope you are not holding a grudge against someone in your life. Life is too short so live your life by being kind and considerate to people as a little kindness goes along way in life.
