I went to see the definition of the word "grudge" and came across this example from Google:

I've never been one to hold a grudge.

I rarely seen this "been one to" expression and would be much appreciated if someone could give me more examples of it in different contexts so I can comprehend how to use it.

Not be one to do something: to not be the type of person who would do a particular thing. - Macmillan dictionary

If you say that someone is not one to do something, you think that it is very unlikely that they would do it because it is not their normal behaviour. - Collins Dictionary

This is an expression for talking about things that you don't usually do.

The sentence you've given means that you have never been the kind of person who holds grudges.
