I’ve heard it said that resentment is a glass of poison you pour for someone else and then drink yourself.

Holding a grudge requires a lot of mental energy. Letting go of resentment and harboring forgiveness is no small feat, but the freedom it gives you is life-altering.

Open your journal and ask yourself:

  • Who do I need to forgive?
  • What do I need to do to forgive them?
  • What do I need to be forgiven for? What would that look like?
  • What does it look like to forgive myself? How can I take a small step in that direction?

Write on those prompts for awhile and see what comes out. Sometimes just asking the question itself can be liberating.
