AA Daily Reading – REPEATING THE OLD HURTS

REPEATING THE OLD HURTS

Serenity  It’s been pointed out that the real meaning of resentment is to “re-feel” and old injury.  This means that we let ourselves feel again the pain we had when we were previously wronged.

Common sense tells us that this is a foolish practice.  But with emotions like resentment,  common sense can be crowded out.  It is a rare person who can avoid resentment about matters that caused deep injury.   Resentment is so much a part of everyday life.  In fact, that it’s considered abnormal not to resent a real wrong.

We’ve also been conditioned to believe that we’re being spineless and wimpy if we don’t become outraged by certain injustices and wrongs.   There’s a difference,  however,    between feeling strongly that something is wrong and being sullen and resentful about it.  The first kind of feeling helps us remedy the problem,  the second feeling simply intensifies our hurt.  Under no circumstances can we afford resentment.

I’ll make this day resentment free,  despite the currents of feeling and bitterness around me.  “Re-feeling”  old injuries is not the way to the happier life I seek.

PRAY WITHOUT RESENTMENT

IN YOUR HEART.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!
