Bitterness tears the joy out of every aspect of life. It’s a way to keep us holding on to the past, dwelling on the hurt, and it places a stronghold on our lives that destroys any chance of happiness. Bitterness is what happens when we hold on and allow unforgiveness to manifest, or ferment to a point, that it consumes our every thought.
We have to stop dwelling, and start giving it to God!! We may have been a victim, and we may have been hurt, but we have to do ourselves the favor, and stop retelling it in our heads. Most of all, we have to learn how to forgive and LET IT GO! The more we hold on, the more we are allowing that person or event to hurt us.
