I can no longer endure the psychic pain of resentment. I must be rid of it as soon as it becomes evident in my thought. “resentment is like me taking poison and hoping someone else dies”. -Unknown
To be rid of it
- Consider the person, place, thing or situation.
- What happened
- Consider how this affects me and other relationships
- Where had I been selfish, dishonest, inconsiderate? Where if any had I hurt them. Did I arouse issues?
I write this down if possible, there is a certain magic in writing with pen/pencil and paper and holding it in my hands to be relieved of this discomfort.
I will then take time, to wish them loving kindness, that they will be relieved of suffering and the root of it.
I can now carry on in my own way, shedding my qualms like a loose garment.
