"Letting Go of Resentments"
Thursday, May 19, 2016
Many of us struggle with resentments. We may hold resentments against our parents, spouses, kids, bosses, neighbors and friends. These resentments may be overt resulting in cutting off all communication with the person who offended us. In some cases this may not be possible and the resentment is hidden.
We may act superficially friendly towards the one who offended us but never trust them or open our hearts to them again. While this might seem like a reasonable solution, long term resentments can have harmful effects on our physical and emotional health. Explore with others ways to better manage this powerful emotion.
- Speaker: Jim Donnelly, MA
