26. Resentment breeds more resentment.
If left unchecked, resentment grows quietly. It silently eats away at my spiritual growth, burying itself deeper in my soul.
Resentment has no place in my life.
Gratitude and resentment can’t live in the same space. Resentment breeds more resentment. Gratitude spreads more gratitude. If I show up ready to give gratitude, I won’t give resentment the time or a place to grow.
In my addiction I would stuff my emotions, I would hide my feelings, bottling them up. Pressure builds up and will eventually release. I can’t rely on resentment to bring me any form of release. No good has come from holding resentments. If left unchecked, resentment grows quietly. It silently eats away at my spiritual growth, burying itself deeper in my soul.
Resentment grows quietly
Gratitude of the day: Today I’m thankful for having the courage to face my resentments, to better understand them. To bring me closer to getting rid of them.
Action of the day: Today I will remind myself of a resentment I once had, and appreciate what my life looks like without that resentment. Are there resentments I’m holding now that I could get rid of?
