The Path of Least Resentment
Dr. Toni Warner
At the heart of all anger, all grudges, and all resentment, you’ll always find a fear that hopes to stay anonymous.” ― Donald L. Hicks
Who in this world has not at one time or another been hurt, slighted, wounded, or even traumatized by another person? And of those who have been victimized in one way or another, who has not secretly wished to get even or have revenge—and maybe even acted on that desire?
Resentment is something that most people experience at one time or another in their lives. But it turns out that, if we hold onto resentful thoughts of revenge, we tend to do more damage to ourselves than to anyone else. Resentment is—to paraphrase a wonderful reminder—a kind of figurative poison that we ingest in the vain hope that the other person will die!
For this episode of Life Mastery TV, I’ve invited the highly knowledgeable Dr. Toni Warner to help us understand this common reactive feeling, and to provide us with some ways to overcome and heal it. We’ll be discussing the following, and a lot more besides:
What Is Resentment?
In order to understand the effects of resentment, we must first have a good understanding of what it is and how it shows up. We’ll talk about the physical, mental, and emotional components of resentment; we’ll also look at some of the external signs that can help you identify it.
Impact on Relationships
Score-keeping, hurtful words, the “silent treatment”, withholding affection. These are just a few of the symptoms that can appear when someone in a relationship begins to feel resentment. Obviously, any one of these examples can cause strain on the relationship and, if left unchecked, can lead to real damage.
Breaking the Resentment Cycle
We’ll discuss the resentment cycle, how it shows up in daily life, and how it impacts our relationships. We’ll consider various ways we can intervene in the cycle and short-circuit it before it worsens.
Letting Go of Resentment
People often find that making peace with something that happened in the past allows them to release it and move on. We’ll discuss some of the tools that can facilitate this process so that you get the most out of the release. Take advantage of this to heal yourself and your relationships!
