Are You Still Carrying Wasted Pain?

A former prisoner of war was asked if he harbored resentment for all the years he spent being tortured in a foreign prison.  Although the experience had been devastating, he said he had no time for “wasted pain.”  I love that term.  Too many of us are carrying around old hurts and bitterness that we can’t fix and now is only damaging our lives.  This year, let’s make a new commitment to let go of those old feelings of resentment, anger, or bitterness.  Learning to let go is tough, and forgiveness is even harder – but ultimately carrying around that pain doesn’t do anything to the person we have issues with – it only hurts us.

“Wasted pain.”  Let’s lose it.
