Resentment

What are you bitter or resentful about? Do you hold any grudges against anyone?

My advice: look closely at any such resentments you harbour in your heart.

Find ways to forgive people. See the other person’s point of view. Assume they were doing their best and didn’t mean to hurt you.

“Holding onto resentments is like drinking a cup of poison and expecting the other person to die.”

Bollinger, R. 2019 (stolen from someone I’m too lazy to Google)

Of course, you have good reasons for that bitterness and resentment. Trust me, I understand.

But take it from someone who has plenty of first-hand experience: bitterness slowly kills you inside. Conversely, letting go of your resentments is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself.

Forgive others because it’s good for you… Not to mention the positive effects that forgiveness can have on your relationships with others.

“…Forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us…”

– The Lord’s Prayer
