When we stew about what someone did to us or didn’t do for us, we are practicing the muscles of living in the past and being angry about things we are powerless over. Is that what you want to develop and strengthen? Giving into habitual resentment is like watering weeds. Behind every resentment is an opportunity. If what happened was a pattern in your life – instead of feeding resentment, take time to discover why the pattern begins, how you participate in it and what you can do differently. Perhaps under the resentment are years of unrelated but emotionally similar circumstances. The opportunity there can be to heal your past by releasing old feelings. Cultivate your life purposefully.
