You Mad Bruh?: The Many Life Lessons of Resentment
1. Why am I mad?
2. Am I being selfish or self-imposing?
3. What would make me happy? Can this person offer me what I am asking for?
4. Longterm resentment leads to grudges!
Avoiding our emotions and not hashing them out effectively can lead to grudges and drawn out conflict. I never fully understood grudges until I was an adult and then I began to see them all around me. I could see the hurt and disgust in people's eyes towards others and even times against me. Grudges are a poison that I seen break up all kinds of relationships: oldest of friends, marriages, and families in general. Say what you have to say and allow healing to happen. The alternative is dangerous.
5. Forgiveness and Acceptance.
I hope that in some way this has provoked thought about conflicts and misunderstandings that may exist in your life. I can only speak from trial and error. Peace and Light Hopefuls!
