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.
