Resentment Is…

Resentment is when you let your hurt become hate.  Resentment is when you allow what is eating you to eat you up.  Resentment is when you poke, stoke, feed and fan the fire, stirring the flames and reliving the pain.  Resentment is the deliberate decision to nurse the offense until it becomes a black, furry, growing grudge.

(Max Lucado, The Applause of Heaven)
