5 Signs you still hold a grudge, and 3 ways to release your pain and forgive

Let me know if this has ever happened to you. You go out with friends, and you see someone who betrayed you in the past. It could have happened several years ago, or it could have happened last month. While you thought you made your peace with the situation, you see or hear something small and insignificant—she tosses her head, or she laughs—and all hell breaks loose in your body.

Has the Goddess Fortune returned from mythology to teach us about fate, or is it all just dumb luck? Or is it something that we actually manifest ourselves, as mind experts suggest?
