QUOTE & OBSERVATION: “To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.” – Confucius

Why is it so many of us seem to treasure our grudges? We cling to feelings of resentment and remind ourselves of the injury we suffered, playing a tape of our injury over and over our mind as if reviving the hurt will somehow cause us to feel better or punish the person who caused it. Grudges are like festering infections that need to be eliminated, not nurtured. – Michael Josephson
