Do you feel angry and resentful? Can you tell me or yourself what is stopping you from letting go of your anger and resentment from a particular person? I have had anger and resentment issues for years and years. I have let go of a lot of my resentment and anger towards certain people, but I have also held on to some of those damn little demons up until last week.
Why could I let go of some of my resentment and anger towards some people, but hold on to the devilish feelings towards others? It is all a part of a greater plan. You will let go when you are ready. You will let go when you are ready to learn your lesson. You will let go when you can wake up one morning and look in the mirror and be truthful with the one looking back at you; yourself.
When you face your demons and you have to stop blaming others for your mistakes that means you have to look within, admit your own faults and find the answers to your problems. I can tell you 99% of your problems stem from your actions, your thoughts, and your ability to blame others for your woes. I had done it for yours. When you let go of your anger and resentment towards someone and you face the predicament you are in, then and only then can you realize you are in the position you are in because you put yourself there. Not because you were abused by your mother, not because your father was an alcoholic, not because you were abandoned, not because you were failed somewhere along the way, no, it is because you failed yourself.
We were all failed at some point. But that doesn’t give you the excuse to fail others in your life or yourself. While you are growing and maturing you are learning lessons, and sometimes these lessons are too tough for you to learn so you play the blame game. That is OK! But by the time you are enter your thirties you better have the ability to know what is right and wrong regardless of your abusive parent, dead mother, non-existent father, bad clergy man, mean neighbor, bully at school or any other one who crossed your path and failed you in some way. Grow up and take responsibility for your actions and who you are today and how you treat other people. More importantly, take responsibility for your decisions. You are where you are today because you decided to be there.
Maybe you knew you couldn’t afford your house but you signed on the dotted line anyway. Well, you lost it because you made a bad decision. Not because of the people on Wallstreet. I don’t mean to be harsh, but we need to stop making excuses, lean on God, and take responsibility for who we are and what we represent.
The bottom line is you are in charge of your life. You are in control. God can control your life anytime He wants to, but you are his child, and He will give you as many chances as you need to get it right. He will never leave you and is waiting to restore all you have lost. But that won’t happen until you let go of the anger, resentment, and trust in Him. Stop playing the blame game. It gets you nowhere. You will feel like you are in the bottom of the ninth with two outs forever. Give up that game and start a new one. One that makes you a winner, one that entails you hitting a home run all the time because you live without guilt and have the ability to forgive, move on, forget, let go of the resentment, and take responsibility for your actions. Try it, you will feel the chains falling from you soul just as soon as you let it all go! Trust me on this one.
