Good one! Its the weak who hold grudges.

U know I get pissed off easily but then I just chuck it and move on. But some ppl seem to hold ugly grudges for life. In doing that, only they themselves get hurt.


Also,


The weak can never ask for Forgiveness. Asking for Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong too.

what about the week who got affected in the blasts..??

they also do forgive..

:)

so maybe gandhiji should have re framed it as those who forgive are strong..!!

@ceedy -> i think that seeking forgiveness is also an attribute of the strong .... the seemingly strong who cannot seek forgiveness are really pretty weak from within ... weakness can be insecurity, inferiority complex etc etc

Hiren said...

@keshi -> ditto ... thats wat i said to ceedy above :) we think alike a lot ;) and i know you are pretty strong from within .... good on you mate !!! :)

Hiren said...

@Vinz -> those who got affected in the blasts are unfortunate & not weak ... and i do agree with you ... it takes lot of strength to endure the mishap ...

@hiren
/the seemingly strong who cannot seek forgiveness are really pretty weak from within /

I beg to differ here. This is your outlook - means this is what you feel as you have your set of personal rules defining what is right or wrong...

But not everyone is same...and I know of real strong people...not weak in any which way....who will not say a SORRY...no matter what

Hiren said...

@ceedy -> i know that kind and thats why i illustrated the weakness types ... the weakness can be in the form of pride or ic or insecurity or anything .... so they are still the strong kind but with a different kind of weakness ...

and yes .. finally it is a matter of perception ...
