Resentment – Sheryl’s Daily Post

I heard a quote once (not sure where it originated) that I thought sums up what resentment is, rather well.  “It’s like swallowing poison expecting the other person to die.” Ignoring resentment, pretending you don’t feel it, or trying to forget those feelings exist, doesn’t work at solving the situation. “Face, feel, deal, heal.”  A […]
