The ugly monster of bitterness

Bitterness is a poison that kills from the inside. It kills your joy it kills your relationships, it is like a cancer that slowly taints your whole life.

Learning to let go of an injustice in your life is not easy nor does it come natural, but It is the best thing for you in your life. To be able to breath again and not carry the weight of hate on your shoulders.

Think about how much energy it takes to stay that angry at someone for decades. You have to mentally go over the things that hurt you over and over and over again. Its just not worth it to go around hating people. Will people keep hurting you in life….. yup some people just don’t care, but that shouldn’t influence your life or attitude about it because there are many that do care. Learning to let go of bitterness and the feeling of being justified in that bitterness is vital to a true joy filled life.

If you are wise and understand God’s ways. Prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. (James 3:13-16 NLT)
