Feeling resentment was like drinking poison and hoping the person I resented would die!
I heard this early in my recovery and have never forgotten it. Resentments hurt me far more than the person I resent. I am told the antidote to resentments is forgiveness, which is not excusing nor condoning the action nor allowing it to ever happen again, but just letting go of the pain I attach to it.

Thanks for this reading today, it`s something I needed to see.

Hugs
