Turns Out There Are More Grudges In Here Than Expected

An animated gif of a clock with the hands advancing quickly all the way around.

A while back I wrote about giving grudges an expiry date and how it was unexpectedly effective in helping me release anger that really had no place in my heart anymore.

Here's a twist: what about all the grudges I hold against MYSELF? What about those???

Turns out that those arguments I didn't handle exactly perfectly that I keep having run through my mind are actually grudges. Same with the time I didn't say exactly how I felt about someone at the time when it could have made a difference or the times I was mean as a teenager--but only because they crop back up in my mind, uninvited, just often enough to ignite regret.

They need an expiry date too.
