Resentment cannot exist where forgiveness is practiced.
Letting go of your ego and learning to forgive your partner for their “flaws and weaknesses” as well as forgiving yourself for holding on to that anger are two of the biggest obstacles to overcome when working through resentment. Everyone has their pace for letting go of resentment. It cannot be rushed or forced, but it can and should be dealt with honestly.

Many times knowing we feed ourselves the thoughts that make us unhappy helps us when we are dealing with resentment. The healing begins when we fill ourselves with forgiving and grateful thoughts one thought at a time.
