How and Why Overcoming Resentment Is Important
Instead of seeing their negative emotions for what they are, many people avoid objectively looking at themselves, and, because they are not accurately seeing what they are feeling, they run the risk of descending into the shadowy realm of chronic resentment.
When spiritual people try to live in love and light, so to speak, they get perplexed when, after they feel they are wronged by someone or something, find themselves feeling resentful. Resentment, they think, is a negative emotion that they are not supposed to have. But when feeling wronged, most can’t help but feel it. After all, when people are wronged, a certain amount of resentment is often unavoidable.
How do the Angels feel about resentment?
But what do you do if you’ve really been trying to live a spiritual life, and then, due to something that comes about, find yourself steeped in resentment? What then? And…What, you may wonder, do the Angels have to say about that?
- The first thing to do is to recognize your emotion.
- The second thing to do is to figure out how to get over it.
The Angels tell me that everyone feels resentful sometimes. It’s unavoidable. If you’re feeling that way now, don’t be alarmed. There’s hope.
The Angels say that the most important thing to do when you are feeling resentful is to get over it as soon as you can. The reason for this is to feel happier, more peaceful, and even, theoretically, live longer.
Someone trying hard to be a “spiritual person” may even go into denial that they’re feeling the resentment they feel because they don’t want to admit that they are being less than ideal. (I can relate!) But the Angels tell me that no one is perfect, or completely ideal, even though some people try to be perfect anyway.
This means that even if you’re an Incarnated Angel or a highly spiritual person, you’re not only not perfect—you don’t have to be! And that, in and of itself is a Godsend!
Is it possible to be perfect?
Attempting perfection leads to frustration, and/or denial, because nobody’s perfect, and perfection is unachievable.
In order to compensate for the discrepancy between trying to be perfect and not obtaining it, a self-identified “spiritual” person will sometimes deny to themselves that “resentment “ is what they feel—even though that’s exactly what they feel. They know resentment is supposed to be negative, they believe they have to be past that, so they lie to themselves.
What they’re not realizing is that resentment is just a human emotion that everyone experiences at times. The goal, when a person is feeling resentful, should be to get over it as soon as possible. But how?
How to get over resentment…
Sadly, some people love to feel resentment because they think it helps them in some way or another. But truthfully, it doesn’t help them at all. When they believe they are wronged by someone outside of themselves, they think they have every right to resent that person. They think that by hating that person they are hurting the perpetrator when actually, the person they are hurting is themselves—not the other person. This is why it’s important to get over the resentment, and to forgive as soon as possible.
How to forgive?
The first thing to do is to forgive yourself. However you got into the position of being hurt—whether by birth (being born into a certain family or circumstance), or by befriending or getting involved with a person or situation—it is very easy to blame oneself. But blame of any sort is not necessarily the proper response.
- Looking for the hidden blessings in your problems is one way to change your emotions for the better. This can help to get your emotions to work for you rather than against you. Perhaps whatever difficulty you have gone through was meant to teach you something that will turn out to be tremendously helpful in some way.
- Another thing you can do is to ask God to forgive the other person through you. That way, you don’t have to do it yourself. God can simply forgive through you, and surprisingly, this works.
- Another idea is to visualize what you want in order to create the happy life that you desire. Visualizing what you want to occur helps to get your mind off the negative and onto the positive, so you’ll automatically feel better right away. Also, visualizing what you want can get you on your way to solving your problems rather than letting them fester in your mind.
The Angels remind us that our sojourn on earth is short, and that how we use our precious time, while here, is important. Chronic resentment causes us to waste much of our precious time, while forgiveness of other people and circumstances helps us to use our time to a much greater advantage for a truly happy life.
