Poison Within.

Many of us are tempted to hold back or cling to the years where we experienced bitterness or resentments that may have steamed from someone whom we argued with, painful events, the way we were raised, backstabs of close people or a misunderstanding. Instead of praying for the wound to be healed, we, as fragile people easily dwell into the bitterness of the past somehow, as if doing it could cause the people who hurt us to feel the pain even more than we do. We overlooked the fact that holding anger is a poison. It eats you from inside. If we think that hatred is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us, we're terribly wrong!, because hate, holding anger, resentment, grudges, revenge or bitterness (whatever you call it) is a curved blade, and the harm we think we do to others, we do to ourselves...stronger and more painful. It is also a rabid dog that turns on it's owner and like grabbing a rattlesnake by it's tail, you are going to be bitten...for sure!
Resentment is a cocaine of emotions. It causes our blood to pump and our energy level to rise. But also like the coccaine, it demands increasingly large and more frequent dosages. There is a dangerous point at which anger ceases to be an emotion and becomes a driving force. A person who bent on revence moves unknowingly further and further away from being able to forgive, for to be without anger is to be without the source of energy.(The Applause of Heaven)
Whenever we hold on to our anger, we start to believe that our positions are more important than our happiness, but in reality they are not! We must understand that being right is almost never more important than allowing yourself to be happy. So be cool and happy, will yah?!

While reading this, some of you might be thinking...you don't have any idea how hard my life has been. And you are absolutely right! I don't!.......,but I have a very clear idea (learned from having been a carrier this poison) that you will be more miserable in the future unless you deal with it the right way. So we must learn to let go and let God! (heard the cliche?) A person who harbors unforgiveness always losses. Hey!, it ain't easy to start the cure, but it sure will make you enjoy life better.

Forgive and Forget, forgetting is only the final step, it is dependent first on forgiving. One frees us to do the other. Forget all the pain but not the wisdom we could gain. Remember the lessons that comes with it and be a better contributor in this painful world.

We cannot alter the pain of yesterday, that is true, but our reaction to yesterday....we can!

Have a day full of smiles!

A fool gives full vent to his anger but a wise man keeps himself under control.(NIV)

Father, (father FJ na tatawag ko sa yo ngayon) mangungumpisal po ako. akmang-akma itong post mo sa latest post ko. parang sinadya. natamaan yata ako. pero sa totoo lang wala akong hatred sa taong yon. kung anuman poot ang nararamdaman ko sa kanya, ito'y sa kanyang nagawa at hindi sa pagkatao niya. deep in my heart umaasa akong maliliwanagan siya at makakakita ng konting humulity para tanggapin ang kanyang pagkakamali.

so father patawarin na ninyo ako kung anuman ang aking pagkukulang. ano po ang aking penance? :-)

You're right...resentment is like drug addiction...it grows into a monster as it goes along, unless countered at the earliest possible time.
