Holding On To Resentments And Grievances IS A Decision To Suffer And Make Others Suffer
Resentments and revenge ruin and run present and future moments. Resentment allows past pain to control us, our feelings and actions. That’s not the way to happiness and spiritual success.
Happy people don’t hold on to misery. They resolve to learn from bad experiences, gain from their pain and move forward. Unnecessary suffering is masochistic, inflicting pain on others sadistic.
Forgiveness does not mean “Door Mat.” People who don’t fight for their rights and freedom loose them!
None of the great religious or spiritual leaders in history were wimps. They all took strong stands and fought for their beliefs. Habitually Happy people are NOT Wimps. They do refuse to be controlled by past pain. They resolve to let pain go quickly.
They make good decisions based on accurate assessments of reality, worthwhile goals and positive intentions.
