Don't Let Bitterness Poison Your Family

Your ancestors are wise, speaking to you telling you not to create, or further deepen, an attitude of bitterness toward your family. 



Bitterness is one of the most destructive of human emotions. If a bitter woman takes over the house, the family she rules is doomed African proverb teaches bitterness starts out as hurt and becomes a chronic state of slow burning anger. 

Bitterness carries a high price tag. It can harness vengeful acts against loved ones that put them at risk for being hurt or victimized and possibly engulfing them in a never-ending, self-defeating cycle of bitterness.

Your ancestors are wise, speaking to you telling you not to create, or further deepen, an attitude of bitterness toward your family.


Listen to the ancestors. Everyone has ancestors, even if you do not know who they are, you can hear and feel the presence of your ancestors and they can hear and feel you. 

Your ancestors are wise, speaking to you telling you not to create, or further deepen, an attitude of bitterness toward your family. Bitterness turns loved ones away from you.
