My Resentments Are My Own

19 May 2016 Written by 

Just as my anger belongs to me, my resentments are my own. No one gives me my anger and “makes” me angry. And no one gives me resentment and “makes” me resentful. These are my own internal issues.  Responsibility for my anger and resentment rest fully on my own inner spiritual work.

 

Why did resentment appear on my radar? Was I jealous? Was I putting expectations on others and not getting what I thought I deserved or expected that I should receive? Was I taking someone else’s moral inventory? Was I not staying in my own yard?

 

It is totally my responsibility to tend to my own resentments. They are my issues and belong solely to me. Others are free to speak and behave without my interference or judgment. My resentment does not spring from a heart of love. No it doesn’t!!  In a heart of love there is no place for resentment or judgment.

 

Today, let me take care of my own heart – carefully paying attention to the roots of my anger and resentment.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
