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, anger and grudges are first cousins. The longer you hold onto your bitterness, the more you will sink into the negative quicksand of ever-cycling feelings of hatred and resentment. When someone you care about hurts you, you can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge — or embrace forgiveness and move forward.
However, if you do not practice forgiveness, you might be the one who pays most dearly. By embracing forgiveness, you can also embrace peace, hope, gratitude and joy. Consider how forgiveness can lead you down the path of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
