    I never realized how resentments really effect you. I feel exactly how it was discussed in
    the article. It is overwhelming to have to think over all the episodes
    Of humiliation I have been through though. Great article

    I’ve been trying to work through some resentments for a long time now. It’s a horrible feeling and i experience it much the way you’ve described where I’m angry at myself for allowing someone else’s mistreatment to either happen or not be acknowledged. I know it only hurts me while the object of my resentment is likely fine and that realization would just frustrate me more. The only thing I’ve found to be of help is reminding myself that I only need to trust myself and not another person. Trust is what has been so damaged and feeling like my past experiences made trusting others feel impossible made the cycle feel endless. But I read somewhere that we only need to trust others to be themselves and trust in ourselves that we can handle situations that may arise. When a bitter thought comes to mind of how I was wronged I remind myself that it will be ok because if I need to I can take care of myself and even if I falter it’s better than living in a state of constant mistrust.

    I was very surprised to find that not all persons lived in a state of constant resentment in everyday life. After many years of self evaluation an tons of antidepressants later I’ve figured out a way to Co exist with the rest of humanity. Without hurting me or them. Resentment eats yu alive. Getting rid of it can mean yur sanity. An learning that resentment isn’t everybody’s problem is life altering. It’s well worth the effort to figure how to keep this at a distance
