Resentment is like…

Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.
― Carrie Fisher

I use this quote a lot so that I will remember it.  When I am having bad thoughts about another person, I realize that I am the one housing the bad thoughts.  I’m sure many times I was angry at someone who was oblivious to the fact, or who quickly forgot the incident.  I don’t want that toxicity in my temple anymore.  Whatever I am upset about, I let go of as quickly as I possibly can (depending how conscious I am in that circumstance).  And I still have a long way to go, but I’m working on it.  So whatever resentment you might be harboring… let it go, and have a wonderful Wisdom Wednesday!
