Lighter load

You have good reason to be angry about many things. Yet you gain no real benefits from prolonging that anger.

It’s understandable that you would feel resentment for the way certain situations unfold. But what good outcome has resentment created, ever, for anyone?

Life delivers ample challenges on a regular basis. There’s no reason to magnify those challenges by holding on to a negative emotion.

For every tinge of anger, or envy, resentment, annoyance, or frustration you feel, you have a choice. You can choose to let it grind you down, or you can choose to let it go.

Give yourself the gift of a lighter load. Enable yourself to direct all your energy toward what’s most meaningful and beneficial.

Step briskly away from negative emotions. You’ll be doing what’s best for you, and for everyone.

— Ralph Marston
