We’ve all held a grudge. Honestly, we have and still hold many. Being piqued over life’s usual conflicts is common. Some become quickly resolved. Too often, though, we lose sight of others settling into the sludge of life. A few, however, remain part of our everyday walks for no reason other than choice.
Bringing other grudges to closure can take years of wandering through the fallout from all those disputes. We, also, keep the shelves of life well stocked with those unresolved quarrels. Most become lost in the fray of the many. Too few put time and effort into sorting things back out and settling the dust. Doing so could, itself, create deep discomfort.
Wrapping ourselves in the melee of life blinds us to what we really want. Without conscious intention, we discover in the fray paths back toward one another. Life just feels too jinxed with hardships and with that we hold to our umbrage. True stumbling blocks in life are those that keep us blinded to ourselves.
