No, I don't have any resentment anymore. I've let it go. It causes me more harm to hold on to resentment. I've dealt with anything like that the best I could and don't let it bother me anymore. For years, I resented that my dad and I never had much of a relationship and that he favored my sister over me. Before he died, I realized that he was the one missing out on not trying to have much of a relationship with me. It's not my fault that he was that way. In the end, I am glad I made peace with it and let it go.

My pastor has been doing a sermon series on things that harm us & resentment was the topic last week. He said it's like drinking poison & expecting someone else to get sick from it. He said that harboring resentment & bitterness can cause serious health problems over time.

There is an attorney in my office who is very mean & hates her job & her husband & complains about her kids all the time. I have known her for years & she was a very beautiful woman, but now she is starting to get lines in weird places on her face because she's always frowning. It's sad. Even though she bullies me sometimes, I feel sorry for her. I wouldn't want to live my life like that.

Keep smiling!!

At times I do resent the fact that I have chronic health conditions. Sometimes I can accept and move on, because fighting the reality doesn’t change anything. Other times I cling to my resentment for a while, especially when I have a relapse.

do you have any resentment in your life, what do you do to deal with it


I used to a lot, then I kept getting the same message from more than one source that the resentment keeps you locked up in a cage of your own choosing. letting go of the resentment doesn't free the person or thing you resent, it frees YOU from the expectation of what you think would make it better, so when all said and done you free yourself from the cage of whatever you expect on that outcome. It was a very liberating exercise that I have never forgotten. Love yourself enough to open the cage and shut it forever



Nothing changes unless something changes.
