MAKING AN ISSUE OUT OF SOMETHING?
MAKING A MOUNTAIN OUT OF AN ANTHILL?
HOLDING A GRUDGE?
MAKING A BIG DEAL OUT OF NOTHING?
HOLDING ON WAAAAAAAAY TOO LONG?
This is not good EQ. Holding grudges, harboring resentment, counting up "she owes me"s, and plotting to retaliate won't do you any good in the world, and will do you bodily harm over time. Anger put in a memo becomes cynicism and chronic hostility. Sadness put into a memo becomes pessimism and depression. Fear put into a memo becomes chronic anxiety and phobias. Injustice put into a memo becomes victim-ology. Loneliness put into a memo becomes isolation.
Lewis Carroll said it well:
"The horror of that moment," the King went on,
"I shall never, never forget!"
"You will, though," the Queen said,
"if you don't make a memorandum of it."
