Resentment

Today is a suggestion for an exercise.  List the people in your life that you are holding resentments on.  Whether it’s for withholding a promotion, or breaking up with you, or sending you on an incorrect path, whatever it is list it.  Now for each one, decide what you are getting out of it.  What is your benefit for holding these resentments?  

I’m not saying these people weren’t wrong, I’m not saying they don’t deserve a huge piece of your mind, and I’m not saying you need to even speak to them today.  But I am saying that holding resentment is likely not serving you.
