Everyday for the next year I will be posting a new Inspirational Rule to consider living by. I hope you enjoy.
Rule #65 12/20/15
Drop the resentment within.
Most of the time you hold onto anger because you believe it would make the person you're mad at upset and realize that they have done something wrong. But the fact is that you are actually hanging yourself up on something that's burning you within. When you're mad at someone, the pain is onto yourself more than it is onto the person you're mad at. When you hate someone, the fire is within your own mind.
No matter what one does to you -- hurt you, look down on you, underestimate you, backstab you, abuse you, or cheat on you -- when you hold the hatred, you hold the hurt. Only when you learn to let go, you let your soul free from the pain. No matter what it is that caused them to do certain things to you, the best thing you can do is to let go.
It will be hard to do if you've never done it before. But slowly, one day at a time, be patient, let it go, forgive those who've done you wrong, you will feel that each day you get stronger and more powerful.
