Have you ever felt resentment for a person or situation? I’m going to guess you have. I know I sure have. That’s why I’m diving into how to let go of resentment, so you can be at peace with yourself and all of your relationships. We know that resentment is being angry or holding a grudge against something or someone. It’s time to let it go and have peace in your life.
Like all of our feelings, resentment starts and ends with our thoughts. We might think that it’s the other person or thing that’s making us have these feelings, but it’s not. Even though it may feel completely justified to hold on to these feelings. I’m going to share a method to let go of those thoughts that are having a negative impact on your life.
