What do grudges accomplish and what does the word mean? Let us take a look at the meaning of grudges in the Webster Dictionary.
Grudges-1. A persistent feeling of ill will or resentment resulting from a past insult or injury. 2. be resentfully unwilling to ogive, grant or allow.
Daily Wisdom Word Meaning: A feeling of resentment that lingers and stays with us once the consequence or action that caused the resentment is over.
Grudges are non-productive. Grudges have no positive impact for any of us. Grudges are resentments that festers like sores that don’t heal. Resentments are feelings that have an ending somewhere. Grudges can last forever. We have all heard stories about a sister someone hasn’t spoken to in five years and it is over a seemingly insignificant thing.
Grudges that do last forever are sad because one day, the person we have the grudge towards dies and then we are left with large feelings of regret. There is no longer a choice to fix whatever we are holding grudges over. It is now too late. Sadly grudges and resentments go hand in hand and anger is what causes these feelings. festered anger over a long period of time is the perfect breeding ground for grudges. This will cause the relationship to permanently end.
There are relationships where it is best for the relationship to come to an end. That would be love relationships where the relationship is over and it is best both partners go their separate ways in order to stay away from each other. We generally see this in toxic love relationships where anger is as relevant as love, and sadly, both parties believe a permanent separation is the only way to stay away from each other.
Grudges are toxic and the stem of them is stubbornness and pride. Each party has too much pride to let go of and put down in order to fix the grudge. Sadly, these can fester for years as we have talked about, and sometimes never get resolved simply because someone cannot put the pride aside long enough to break the ice and be the first one to break the silence.
Grudges are not only non-productive, they result in a premature ending of a relationship that is family. Funerals are a perfect breeding ground for grudges for some reason. When all is said and done, and it is time for the will to be read, and greed begins to enter the picture as well, grudges cannot help but fester due to Susie getting what Alex expected to be his, or vice-versa.
As we have talked about, grudges last far too long if not forever, and there is no place for them. There is no reason other than with an addictive love relationship that we should stay away from each other permanently unless the benefits of keeping the relationship don’t outweigh the negatives.
