Refusing to let go of something negative - a feeling, a memory, a comment made - can cause grief. Often bitterness. Nearly always resentment.
Who are you hurting?
Who is gaining from it?
Does it solve it for you?
Do you learn anything while stuck in the refusal of letting go?
Do you move forward?
Does it make you happy?
What about potential?
The potential of letting go?
The opportunities that letting go offers?
The possibilities that come with letting go?
When stuck in resentment, ask yourself:
Who will you hurt?
Who will gain?
Will it allow you to move forward?
Will it make you happier?
Your life - your choice.
Until next time, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
