BEST OF: Let It Go? Or No?

Still mad about that thing from that time? In this "Best Of" re-release, we review listener grudges large and small, deciding once and for all if those listeners should let it go or no. That’s not the same as whether they have a right to be annoyed.

This week we're revisiting one of our all-time favorite episodes, in which we review listener grudges, large and small, and deciding once and for all if those listeners should let it go, or no.

Letting it go doesn't mean you're wrong to be annoyed. Sometimes you are totally right and you STILL have to let it go.

And sometimes nursing a tiny bonsai grievance for a decade is sort of fun... but that works better when you aren't related to that person.

Sometimes shifting our perspective is the best choice we have.

As Margaret's Aunt Terry likes to say: you can't get pizza from a Chinese restaurant.
