I received an email from a close friend of mine that stated that he was going through his old emails and came upon one that I had sent him years ago about a promise that I made to pay back all of the money that I owed from when my life had hit rock bottom back in 2009.
I meant it then and I still mean it now that I will pay back the debts that I owe, but here’s the point of that email:
Instead of confronting me about something that for 7 years this friend has had a grudge about, he used a passive aggressive tactic via email as a form of communication.
Instead of confronting me face to face for something that has been holding back his own growth, he resorted to an elaborate story of going through old emails and then sending one himself reminding me of the money that I owe.
For 7 years, this friend of mine has held a grudge because he thought that I took the money and then I never addressed it with him.
Yet not ONCE did this friend have the courage to confront me in person about what happened, even though we had dozens of face to face interactions since 2009 when I borrowed the money from him in the first place.
Are you holding onto a grudge from the past that in turn is holding you back from moving forward?
These bitter feelings have consumed him because he didn’t confront me, which may mean that there are other things in his life that he also doesn’t confront.
It is not worth it to hold onto the grudges from the past and address the issues that are holding us back.
This is what prosperity is about: confront and then move forward.
I know that I will pay back my debts, and so I have not been held back by this $18K debt that has been CONSUMING my friend because I haven’t continually brought it up over the years.
Learn to let go of the grudge so that the real issue can be addressed.
