Do you hold grudges against people? Tell us about an incident if you do, and if you don't, tell us how you rise above it.

If holding grudges was a sound then I'd be a klaxon blaring loudly, longly and in a ridiculous manner. It is the one single thing that I really don't like about myself; the way in which I can take some (often imagined) slight and incubate it over years, allowing it to fester and grow mould, to develop tentacles and several heads, for it to evolve into some horror that when let loose it wounds and kills. If we harnessed the energy used in my petty, ridiculous grudges we could fuel the national grid for several years.
And rising above it? Ha. If people didn't do dreadful things to me then I wouldn't have to hold grudges, would I? So, it's not my fault. It's everyone else who has it in for me.
