Resentments Ruin Relationships

Chaos: an infinite abyss of utter confusion and disorder.


Resentment: deep, bitter, painful and persistent anger and hurt at someone or something as a result of a being ill-used and treated unfairly.

Resentment is like drinking deadly poison and waiting for the other person to die.  ~  Carrie Fisher

My life is mired in chaos.  Due to the unaccustomed lack of alcohol in my bloodstream my brain is beginning to function at something like full capacity.  This is not universally good news.  I realise that I have a few deep and abiding ill feelings of dissatisfaction and rancour ~  resentments if you like.  I need to purge these from my soul, or my soul must surely die.

A life lived mired in resentment is one that is lived primarily in the past, and this is never one that is filled with joy.  ~  Taite Adams.

I cannot change the past, it is futile for me to dwell upon slights which happened as recently as yesterday.  Somehow, sometime, I should think about forgiveness.

The feeling of resentment and inferiority is natural and nothing much can be done about it.  What can be done is to think, where these feelings will lead you?  If you want to be a winner in life, if you want to reach the top, then make sure that these feelings of resentment and inferiority lead you to nothing else but aspiration!  ~  Abhishek Ratna

Resentments are addictive, I am busy breaking one addiction, and I swear that I will also break my capitulation to old dramas and new hurts, or else my life will slowly unravel like an unwanted ball of twine.

  1. Perhaps this bit of chaos can be used to fuel your healing process. Resentment is something you’re going to have to accept and release…when you’re ready to do that, you’ll know. Until then, simply love yourself. I’m wishing you love and light.

  2. I can understand this. Just try to remember that resentment only holds you back, and to move forward you have to do it with everything: your body has to take the steps forward, your mind has to look toward the future, your heart has to let go of the past and heal up all those old wounds. You’ll get there, little by little. Keep us updated on your journey. 🙂

    1. Just now I am a cool, calm, collected wreck of what once used to be a man. Thank you for your very kind words. I will bare my soul again sometime.
