    Holding a grudge against someone who hurt you does not affect that person so much as it will hurt you. So it is the best thing to forgive and forget.

    yes, even if not extremely negative feeling, but I am not the one who can forget the ones whom I loved once from all my heart, but who hurted me in return. I may not do anything on my part,or initiate anything to hurt them. But yes, I may not be as helpful as before. I cant forgive! :-( Even if I make that person unimportant in my life, their name may still anger me.

    No, but I've held a grudge against myself. Now I'm free of it, and it's the best thing that ever happened to me. Carrying guilt is the most soul-destroying practice and one most of us are guilty of. We have to find away to make amends, and if we can't, pray and ask that the burden be lifted. Otherwise, we're walking around half a person with a weight on us.

    Forgiveness is a powerful thing. You can carry a massive weight such as the burden of holding resentment. This will have a negative impact on your life and prevent you from having open awareness because of the grudge in the back of your mind.I didn't think this way when I was younger but the passing of time has opened my eyes to new ways of thinking. Life goes on and we make of it what we choose.

    I have been hurt and wronged by many people throughout my life, but holding a grudge will only eat you up, not them.  If you can't forgive and forget then you will never really be happy.  Just like a duck does with water, let it roll off your back.  Life is too short to hold grudges.
