“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”
– Roy T. Bennett
We’ve all been treated unfairly at times ~ it’s part of life. Certain situations can lead us to feel angry, upset, mistreated and resentful.
It’s perfectly normal to feel that way, but when you allow yourself to wallow in the drama of it all for too long, you delay your own healing, create toxic energy in your body that can lead to illness, and bring more drama into your life.
You may also notice friendships dwindling as people around you get sick of you being in victim mode.
None of this makes for a good future ~ and the future is within your control; the past isn’t.
If you find yourself stuck in bitterness and resentment, read on.
HOW TO OVERCOME FEELING BITTER
🛑 Stop telling the story to your friends, colleagues, hairdresser and the cats at the bus stop.
Look for the gifts out of what happened – what did you learn about yourself? What good things are free to come into your life now you’re out of that situation? There’s always some kind of growth opportunity.
Be honest with yourself about the part you played in whatever happened. What could you have done differently? Is the other person really 100% to blame?
Practice forgiveness ~ of yourself and others. Check out my free forgiveness tools here: https://coachcarly.com/freebie/
Keep on top of your self talk ~ it’s really easy to spiral down the rabbit hole of negative thinking and ruminate on what happened, but you really aren’t helping yourself overcome the pain ~ choose your thoughts wisely and soothe yourself into more neutral talk.
Get some help ~ professional help such as therapy or a Coach, or energy work like Kinesiology or Reiki.
There comes a time when holding on to the pain is just self destructive; make a choice today to do a little each day to move forward, instead of staying stuck in the past.
If you need some help moving forward, you know where I am.
