Your resentments do not hurt only you.
They hurt the people who love you, the people who are close to you, and the people who rely on you.
When you are resentful, you are no longer emotionally available for those who need you.
To get angry when you are hurt, slighted, or taken advantage of is to be human, but to remain resentful once your anger subsides is a decision.
Resentment is selfish.
It blinds and deceives you.
It manipulates your thinking, steals your attention, and convinces you that nothing matters more than how you feel.
By holding onto your resentments, no matter how justified they may be, you are proclaiming that your feelings are more important than your life and the lives of those around you.
You can have resentments or you can have healthy relationships, but it is very difficult to have both.
