Sometimes our pain can make us bitter.
Our hearts become infected because of wounds inflicted (or perceived to be inflicted) by others.
While it is understandable, it must be prevented because it’s only going to hurt you. It is a strong, negative emotion.
How do you know you’re bitter?
- Seeing or even just hearing the person’s name who has offended you makes you seethe inside. Ever feel it? I have.
- You replay the tape. Over and over and over.
- If you find out something good has happened to that person, it aggravates you.
Bitterness eats away at you.
Next time, “how to stop being bitter”.
