15 Things That Emotionally Strong People Don’t Do

There is a particular aspect of mental strength that is the deciding factor of whether or not you will have a good life.

3. They Don’t Hold Grudges

If you’re holding a grudge, then you already care more about a situation than you should. If a person apologizes genuinely, forgive him or her. If this person doesn’go to link for more brilliant insights. ...
