I tend to hold grudges. And if someone's got a history of gossiping, or abusing my friendship in some other way, I'm quick to expel those people out of my life, completely.
I don't have time for the drama. I don't need it.

But for those who I know generally care about me, and my life is better off with them in it, I'm quick to move on, if we've had a falling out, or whatever, once we've worked it out.

I've just found that, in my own experience, those people are outnumbered by those who are users, or who would stab you in the back for something small.

I don't have the time or space for people like that in my life, which is why I keep my social circle pretty small and tight.

The people I have in my life, are really worth it. Even if I don't have dozens of friends or relatives that I keep in regular contact with. I used to live like that, and I found myself constantly dragged into someone else's drama. Being used, or dragged into something. Gossiped about or judged.
Whereas now, my life's quieter, but largely stress-free. :)
