I 100% agree with Simon, the man narrating the article. I believe grudges are healthy and quite common though out society. However grudges can be held, they should not persist because of a forgivable reason. It is unnecessary to hold grudges over silly things such as your sister using your clothes without permission. "I suggest that we take a breath and try to sort the forgivable from the unforgivable". There are some incredible stories about people forgiving others for killing a loved one or any event that has caused the person a great deal pain or grief. Personally, no matter how hard I would try, I could never forgive someone that had cause me that much sadness. I think holding these grudges also teaches the victim of the grudge a lesson. Say you forgave someone immediately after they hurt you in such a devastating way, they might not learn from it and think they can just repeat the same mistake and you will forgive them just as easy as the first time. In conclusion, in my opinion holding a grudge is very healthy and very effective to impose for the right reasons.
