Resentment has no power…

“Don’t carry a grudge. While you’re carrying a grudge, the other guy’s out dancing.”  – Buddy Hackett

Resentment  will keep us held down.  I cannot afford resentment in my recovered life.  I separate myself from God, humanity and joy when I carry a grudge.  I learned an extremely effective prayer very early on in my recovery to ward off the threat of resentment.  Yes resentment is a threat that I cannot afford to have in my life.    The prayer was shared by a popular fellow in the self help groups of Nassau and Suffolk County, Duff!  It was a simple prayer that I continue to utilize today to ward off the resentment.  “God please give _______  everything I want and more”!  I have since added “Thank you and I Love You”!

Simply attempting to “let it go” leaves the door open for resentment.  This prayer has been a life saver for me, because any time I think of the offense or offender I simply say the prayer.  It is freeing to me and I truly believe it is freeing for the other individual.  I really do want them to get everything I want in life and more.

Peace, Go, Go, Go…
