No Time to Grudge

NO TIME TO WASTE : Fill in the blank: “Life is too short to _____.” Now, write a post telling us how you’ve come to that conclusion.


Life is too short to Bear A Grudge.

I believe in this and abide by it too as far as possible.

Having said that, let me hasten to add, I am no saint. I have my faults and weaknesses galore! I am a perfectionist, I am critical, I demand a lot from my loved ones from loyalty to appreciation. I make no bones about stuff I do not like. I am outspoken and honest as far as opinion and views go and more often than not, am brutally so! I have a fairly short fuse and that is evident too.

But despite sounding like as bad as Attila The Hun, the one thing I know I am not is one who bears a grudge. I can rarely do that . However much we may hurt each other or someone hurts me, I can get over that and be cordial friendly or even loving with a clean heart. If it is someone I love, I can do it with as much ease as breathing. I find a reason for whatever they have said and done . Often I can see where I could have behaved differently. And even if I was not to blame even by any stretch of imagination, I can find it in me not bear grudges. Mind you, I never forget…. I have an elephantine memory for words, time and places, but can accept a person with faults. Faults are very evident to me and I see them clearly and from afar but I can still like and love people despite that.                 


hold hands

As the prompt says life is just too short for bearing grudges. I am often the first one to make up even if I have initiated the tiff / fracas myself. I hate not talking or losing communication with my family friends and even colleagues. I like to keep the channel of communication open through whatever means are available. Be it talking in person, mailing, chatting or calling.


Life is “too short” for a myriad of things and sometimes too long for a few, but I feel I have no time or the heart to bear grudges. I feel uncomfortable till a misunderstanding is settled and the air cleared. I generally do not  like the sun to set on such a problem with anyone I love. I may rave and rant and let all that I feel be there in the space between us, but once that is done, whatever the outcome I do not like it coloring the rest of the day, relationship or life. I usually go all out to do this.

 With whatever it takes! Life is beautiful – grudges are ugly!

    Grudges weigh the most, like an invisible weight that you constantly feel, very well said!

    I am totally in agreement with you. One must not hold any grudges as they tie you down and make one’s life miserable. One must move on and live the present moment…

    Beautiful quotes especially of Buddha. No grudges to carry makes you a happy & light person.
