Welcome to the weekly Love Affirmations for 2017 to help you with your self-love, personal growth, love life, and all your relationships. Please visit this page each week for a new affirmation. You deserve the life you always dreamed of, so let’s get started:
Resentments Block Love
Do you feel wronged by someone? Are you still blaming that person for ruining your life? Whoever you’re resenting has moved on and might have forgotten about the incident that wounded you. Or perhaps, they are haunted by guilt.
You had no control over their past actions, nor how they feel about it. What you do have control over is how you choose to respond to it. One choice is to hold on to the resentment, although this will create barriers in your heart. The second choice is to find the lesson in the stunt they pulled and choose to grow from it.
Your resentment has only injured yourself by creating obstacles to love and joy. Wouldn’t you like more happiness and loving relationships in your life? Take the baby steps to letting go of your grudge by getting into the feeling underneath – anger, disappointment, sadness, and deep hurt. Let go of why you think the person did you wrong; instead acknowledge that people who are hurting inside will turn around and hurt others to ease their pain. Do your best to see what this event has taught you and becoming willing to begin the process of forgiveness.
I choose to let go of resentments that are holding me back from love. ~ Pamela Cummins
