Resentment?!

Feeling angry, resentful about things that happened or didn’t happen?!
Resentment is like a cancer. Tips to reduce resentments to live a happier life. Think loving positive thoughts for your personal resentment. The opposite of anger, hate, fear? is love. By sending LOVE towards others. Praying that they receive all the wonderful things you want for yourself in life, you slowly turn away at negative emotions that do you harm.  Try and work at it.
Believe in prayer,  set aside time during the day to think loving thoughts. Wishing others good fortune and blessings. Say it out loud. GOD please give love, health and peace to others and myself to let any resentment go.
At first it will likely feel awkward and meaningless,  difficult. It could take weeks, months, or even years, but eventually you’ll notice where there were once ill feelings. But now there is peace, love and that you start to actually mean it.
Check your motives and expectations, the best way to eliminate resentment is, not to set yourself up for it. For example, think about when people ask you to do things for them. You probably form expectations about what they’ll do for you in return. If there’s a hint of what’s in it for me, chances are you’re headed for some resentment. Be Grateful. A heart that is full of gratitude has little room for resentment.  Whenever I’m feeling stressed, resentful, or angry, I put my pen to paper and write down  things I’m grateful for in that moment.
It’s difficult to resent what you don’t have when you’re focusing your energy on what you do have. Stay open to different outcomes.
The key to finding happiness is realizing that you already possess everything you need to be happy. When you realize happiness is an inside job, you’re less likely to place demands on other people and situations.
Reducing resentment takes practice and mindfulness. Being mindful, I recognized this and removed myself from unhealthy situations.
I asked for acceptance, guidance. Years from now, what will I remember the most.
We all have the ability to manage expectations, change our state of mind, and ultimately be happy regardless of how we expect things will unfold. Don’t let your demons  introduce you to hell, Introduce your demons to Heaven. May peace be with you!
