Don't Be a Grudge Holder!

Takes one to know one!

I admit...I was a Grudge Holder. If someone wronged me...I would cut them out of my life.

That was that! I didn't want to hear their side of the story or let them explain. I didn't want to entertain an apology, let alone forgive someone! Parish the thought!

I have had issues with people in the past that ended very badly and have caused a huge rift. There can be all sorts of reasons and situations that cause people to disagree, argue and split apart. Sometimes these things are temporary...sometimes permanent. This was certainly the case with me and I was "fine" with handling things this way. I mean, I did this for years!

It wasn't until I became Catholic and changed my whole perspective on pretty much everything in my life...that I realized this wasn't and isn't an "okay way" of dealing with past and present hurt.

If someone is genuinely sorry for something they have done to you and actually takes the time and effort to sincerely apologize to you...FORGIVE THEM! That's it! Forgive them! Life is short! Give them another chance! It's risky, they might hurt you again...but would if they DON'T?! Would if there could be peace?

It would not only be a relief to them, but it would relieve you too! Win Win!

Forgive and forget...and if you can't forget...just FORGIVE!

About Me


I’m Lori Balderas, I created this podcast for those who are converting, reverting or simply want a FRESH perspective of the Catholic faith to help them to open their hearts and minds to become closer to the love and goodness of Christ.

I converted to Catholicism at the age of 49.  It was, by far, the best decision I’ve ever made! I don’t claim to be an expert or Theologian, but what I DO know is that my heart is bursting with love for the Lord and I want others to feel the same way!  

I feel impassioned and drawn to Evangelize people by sharing my experiences and transformation that have gotten me where I am today.

I will be sharing my personal conversion story and speaking with others about theirs.
