"To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it."

Hanging on to past grievances does not hurt the person who wronged you; it only hurts YOU.

We can make ourselves ill (ulcers, blood pressure, headaches, etc.) by holding onto bad feelings, grudges, or anger and that is, in the end, so very senseless.

Let it go. Move on. You will be a better person for it if you do.

I believe that being wronged and carrying it with you your whole life, it's the same as a grudge, and that basically saps your energy, or lifeforce.

Nothing like a grudge to destroy not only your health but your soul.

I have not seen your blog before... I believe I will come back and read more.

Also, thanks for visiting mine and adding your poem as well... Very well written I might add.

Good one Michelle! By remembering a wrong against us, and reliving it over and over and over in our head, we allow ourselves to be wronged just as many times.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I like yours.

Forget what's not worthy of remembrance.

So many of these quotes seem to tie together.

We choose to be hurt, or angry, at the actions of another. We can choose to punish ourselves for them, or we can choose to let it go.

Which choice do you make?
