Getting sober often leaves us and our families with a long list of hurt feelings. We can resent people, organizations and ourselves.
Hanging our hats on resentments, holding them close and nurturing them only serves to feed them. Just like expectations, resentments tend to repopulate given the chance. They grow and grow and grow bigger like a balloon.
The long slim needle of truth about a resentment is they are a recycling of old negative feelings that we choose to reboot in our minds over and over again. How do addicts and their families pop the resentment balloon?
