That’s what a lot of people say if you decide not to associate with them any more.
Well, there really may be another reason. And it’s a good one.
How about “I saw who you really are when you did ______ and I’m not unseeing it.”
You see, life is too short to hold a grudge against someone. There are three things you can do in that situation.
Laugh about it when you can, and move on.
Apologize when you should, and decide if you should go on or try one more time.
Or, let go of what you can’t change, and move on. You can’t unsee what you saw, or unhear what you heard.
Don’t even try.
Move on when you get to that point. In the end, you’ll be better off, and a lot happier.
It’s not a grudge. It’s a choice for your emotional health.
