I once listened to a lecture on the effects of holding grudges, not forgiving people who have done you wrong, holding anger against your spouse for the same types of things year after year, etc.

The speaker explained how unforgiving people hold onto anger, thereby doing more harm to themselves then those who have angered them.

He went on to say that these angry people are in a constant state of unhappiness and turmoil, always fretting over some other person who has done them wrong.

The speaker explained how the person living in your mind is probably out there living a very happy stress free life, seldom giving you or the past argument a thought.

We can all relate to times when we have had conflicts with family members, co workers, etc.

So what happens? We fret day after day about the awkwardness of working around some co worker we've argued with.

We spend days at a time not speaking to our spouse from some stupid argument relived time after time.

How do YOU feel when dealing with these situations? You feel miserable even though you may be in the right. Maybe in your eyes, it was completely the other person's fault, but day after day it is YOU feeling terrible about it.

The bottom line of this speaker's lecture, was to get you to understand how forgiveness, letting go of your anger, not having to always be right, etc., will be the best thing you could ever do for your own well being.

Stress is responsible for many negative health issues in our lives, so we all have a choice to make.

We can choose to always be right when dealing with others who have offended us. We can chose to hold onto grudges etc., living with that constant nagging stress.

OR, we can choose to turn the other cheek, forgive and forget, regardless who was at fault. By doing this, we will be the ones enjoying a stress free life, enjoying our marriage, enjoying our co workers, etc.

It takes two to argue. We can choose to take the high ground, be the first one to forgive and forget, and living happier lives as a result.

Liberals would be the poster children for this person's lecture. They live in a constant state of anger towards Christians, Rich people, Gun owners, Men, heterosexuals, Pro life people, you name it.

They are very insecure people who must demonize others to feel better about themselves.

Well, in reality most everyone is happier than Nom.

How could the mentally unbalanced bastard son of a diseased whore ever be happy?

Your obsession with me has reached the point of deranged hilarity. You spend your free time writing hate speech on the internet and trying to belittle people with vile, sneering put-downs. The fact that you seemingly believe that to be indicative of happiness is why there is precious little demand for your opinion.

Lol. You try so hard I actually feel sorry for you.

Well, they do say that ignorance is bliss, after all.

Unfortunately, you are a ridiculous fascist liar who openly sources his "news" from the Chief Nazi Minister of Propaganda and from various climate denial blogs funded by the Koch brothers.

That isn't ignorance. That's just called being a shill. You have been caught telling lies so many times that at this point you are just a fucking joke. Not only is everything you ever write stupid and false, but you are more than willing to lie about things which you have already been caught lying about.

Even the most ignorant person on Earth would struggle to believe a word which comes out of your mouth. You are very simply a total pathological liar.

You just cannot subdue your overwhelming urge to respond to THE CALL OF THE BRONTO.
