Don’t let bitterness become you.

I read those words and fear that I allow this sometimes.

The past has happened. We made those mistakes. But reliving it in hatred towards another person or situation is not helpful. It’s painful, it’s draining and it’s a spiral that can eat you up.

At one point, what I now feel bitter about once made me happy. We need time and we need healing. With a gentle look at ourselves to allow us to work through pain and hurt, what once was can now be a blessing and a lesson.
