Don't Hold Grudges

First of all, I am back on the blogging train! Welcome to any new readers and I love the comments lately. Keep reading and commenting, friends. :) And be sure to follow me on Twitter and Facebook if you like my blog.

Now, let me admit something about my personal life. I am terrible at confrontations and will do almost anything to avoid them. I know, I know...certain confrontations are a part of life. I can handle them with people I am very close to and that is basically my parents and my boyfriend. And that's about it. I've always been terrible at friendship confrontations. But the other thing is, I let go of things easily. Just because I haven't talked to a friend because of a fall-out, doesn't mean I still "hate" him or her. If they came up to me and wanted to be friends again, chances are I would be okay with that...but I guess I am way too stubborn and nervous to dive back in.

The other thing that goes along with this are grudges. I know many people who have held grudges against me over stupid issues or have heard about other people's grudges. Grudges are such a waste of anyone's time and energy. Once something is done, it should be done. Grudges do nothing to the other person, but they stew inside you and poison your body.
So let things go. Chances are you'll feel much better.

What do you think about confrontations and grudges?


  1. Oh Miss Lauren, I like you already! I feel the same grudges are a waste of time! Sometimes I wish I could hold one,because people can be so mean, but forgivness is bliss!

  2. Haha it's so weird, I'm exactly like you about the whole confrontation thing! I pretty much avoid confrontation like the plague. If things upset me then I usually just keep it to myself and suck it up and deal with it, unless it's to the point where I REALLY have to say something. Otherwise... no way D:

  3. grudges are ridiculous...but I"m guilty as charged.
    I like to blame it on the fact that I'm a scorpio cause I don't want to live up to my own actions.
    I'm working on it though!!

  4. Thanks for the comments! Glad I'm not alone out here with these issues...
