{How to} Let Go of Bitterness

Thursday, October 4, 2012 8:00 AM

There are few things more detectable or more off-putting than a bitter woman. And at some point or another, can any of us honestly say that we haven't experienced the ugly feelings that cause bitterness?     That's fine, but it's a problem when you can't let them go.

Bitter feelings drain a woman's beauty and spiritual energy. How can you attract abundance, how can you grow, when you're holding on to negativity?

If you want a beautiful life, you have to have beautiful thoughts.  If you think that you're not holding on to any bitterness, I challenge you to take some quiet time to reflect on where you've been and how your perception of this is impacting your current situation.  If there's anything holding you back, it's time to let it go.

How to let go of bitterness

* Be passionate about your personal growth.  Always look for the lesson instead of looking for reasons to complain.  Remember, there's no personal freedom in playing the victim.

* Accept responsibility. You're limited as to what you can control externally, but you can absolutely control how you respond.  Don't let your ego run the show.

*  Take a step back to see the forest.  Accept the natural cycle of things.  People hurt and get hurt.  Win and lose.  This is life.  You don’t have to love it, but it’s just easier if you at least accept it. 

* Know that everything people do is not about you.  Truth.com.  Focus on your own journey to being the best you that you can be.

* Envision what you want for your life.  Positive things will come your way when you emotionally separate yourself from the negative things.   This is everything.

Lovies, resilience will look so so good on you.  Nothing is more beautiful than a smile that has survived through tears and heartache.  No matter what it is, be brave and rise above it.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. ~Roald Dahl
