Resentment is when you carry the pain within you. Carrying the pain causes more pain and perpetual suffering.
When you carry pain, your mind becomes resentful, clouded, and it’s easy to misjudge.
So whenever somebody hurts you — stop.
What is it that you’re supposed to learn?
What did you learn from this situation?
Figure that out, and then store it somehow: write it down, or talk about it. Bringing it outside of you will allow you to fully understand the lesson behind the situation.
Then you can let it go.
It’s easy to forgive someone when you step back and regain focus on the lesson, instead of keeping the pain.
