You only have so much emotional energy each day. Do you know how much energy it takes to hold a grudge... to be bitter.. to think on and plot ways to pay somebody back? 

Why waste that valuable energy on something so fruitless when you can put it toward deciding your next best move..  making a plan... taking care of your family.. pursuing your destiny?? If you want to experience beauty for the ashes you've been dealt in life, you gotta let go of the ashes and make room for the beauty. You can't hold on to hurt and live bitter. Let it go of BITTER and live BETTER!  Like my old professor used to say... the letter "I" makes the difference in those two words.
