Peace is Never Accomplished by Holding Grudges

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” 
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Holding a grudge, is malice, it weakens an individual, and disallows room to forgive.  It preys on the mind of such an individual and grows as a terminal disease, until it consumes that individual’s entire body, mind and soul.  These individuals are unable to think soberly because they are consumed with bitterness, anger, wrath, and evil thoughts of plans to destroy someone else. This is the behavior that prevents us from having peace with our neighbors. 

Grudge: a feeling of deep-seated resentment or ill will; syn. malice 
Malice: desire to see another suffer, to cause pain, injury, or distress to another.
