While it does seem tempting to resent someone and hold grudges for the rest of your life, it certainly isn’t correct. If someone has hurt or betrayed you, it is natural to get angry and feel upset. But this anger should not last forever and should eventually be released. Anger and resentment do nothing but waste your time and energy.

Resentment is a feeling of indignant displeasure at something or someone. Resentment eats away your precious time and makes you feel negative and low. It robs you of your mental peace and serenity and makes you feel anxious. Here are 4 ways to get rid of your resentment and live a happier and peaceful life.

Address your emotions

Letting go of your resentment and releasing your anger requires you to address your feelings and acknowledge them. From feeling angry and hurt to feeling disappointed and betrayed, address your emotions and label them instead of trying to ignore them or suppressing them.

Express your anger

To effectively release your anger, express your anger. There is no need for you to feel guilty about it or hide your anger. You can express it by writing your thoughts down in a journal or engaging in physical activity or indulging in a hobby to help you overcome the negative emotions and channel your energy. 

Be open and accepting

Only when you learn to accept the flaws of people, will you truly be at peace. Don’t expect the world from everybody and learn to accept the flaws and imperfections of people. This will not only make you feel calm but will also prevent you from getting disappointed. 

Shift your perspective

Instead of focusing on the wrong and the negative things, try to shift your perspective and look at the bright side of things. Try to put yourself in the shoes of the other person to understand their perspective to let go of the resentment.
