There is enough heartache and sorrow in this life without our adding to it through our own stubbornness, bitterness, and resentment. –Dieter F. Uchdorf
Seeds of bitterness, left unchecked, can harbor into a full-blown anger that consumes us. It festers and eats away at us. It destroys our happiness and steals our joy. Ultimately, bitterness only hurts ourselves, and not the person we are angry with. Letting go of bitterness is a conscious, intentional act. Letting go of bitterness restores our joy, and gives us freedom to truly live life again.
