Nope - no sin here

It seems to me so many people hold on to grudges just for the sake of doing so. Events that may have happened many years before seem to be reborn; as if to justify some sort of moral stand, even when a conversation centers around something else entirely.
I wonder in these specific cases if it isn't all a "look at me... looook at meeee" type of thing. A somebody done somebody wrong song.

Boy is THAT's a tune that never goes out of style. [1]

Although my generosity doesn't extend in any way to serious crime, I'm happy to consider we all have our moments where we could have done things differently. Forgiveness is underrated, and in cases where we have no direct relationships to the issues at hand it's all so easy to take a side, when in actuality we have no right to judge at all.

Judge not, lest you be judged, or so it's said. It's just that I'm not sure I could stand up to a cosmic security check.

How about you?

Happy New Year to you. I have been enjoying your writing during the holidays. A little more time on your hands giving you the room to bloom?
On this post I have to say I'm the forgiving type due to living in the proverbial glass house.
The glass house also has me afraid to blog. I admire your courage. And your friend Di is off the charts amazing!

The great thing about blogging is the anonymity. If you started today - and never told anyone, used another name - no one would be the wiser...

Eventually you'd have to tell me tho - please?

I think you'd have some interesting things to say :)

I hold a grudge, but only because someone bought me the t-shirt

I'd believe you if it wasn't for the fact that last comment was a complete load of bollox.
