It’s one thing to get upset over an injustice you suffered at the hands of someone else, but it’s another thing entirely to hold on to that emotion long-term. That’s called holding a grudge and it can easily consume you if you’re not careful.
The reason this is so bad for your happiness is because the negative emotions associated with grudges eventually give way to resentment and thoughts of revenge. In turn, this leaves little room in your emotional repertoire for anything else, like happiness, according to the Mayo Clinic. What’s more, decades of research have linked this simple act to better overall heart health, less psychological stress, improved physical ability, and longer life.
Holding a grudge, is self explanatory holding unhappiness
Hi Mercy, Thank you for your comment. Carrying a grudge can only harm the person doing the carrying. When we let go of grudges we can start enjoying life and let love flow freely in snd out of our lives. Have a great weekend. Ray
It’s tough but let go. 🙂
