Bitterness will keep us tied to the past. Yes, what happened was probably wrong but are you ready to be a thriver or continue as a victim? Letting go of the victim mentality is hard, it gets comfortable blaming others from the past about our continued misfortunes. We fail to take responsibility for the here and now. The people from the past are gone, they have no control over what is currently happening to you. You are. How you respond to the current events in your life will determine the current outcome. You may not be able to change the event but you can change your response to the event. In order to change your responses, you need to let go of bitterness and forgive yourself. Yes, forgive yourself first not the other person.
So for today: How can I forgive myself and let go of my bitterness?
