How does long-term resentment affect people in your experience?
Sep 14, 9:55PM EDT0

Long term resentment can have a negative effective on the body and the mind. It also affects the healing process from the hurt.

Sep 15, 12:32AM EDT0
Why is it that sometimes the people closest to you are the ones that hurt you the most?
Sep 14, 5:12PM EDT0

Most of the time the people closest to you never intentionally hurt you but sometimes it is deliberate. The reason why it hurts so bad is because you love and care for the person. If you had no intimate relationship with them it wouldn't bother you as much.

Sep 14, 5:33PM EDT0
Why do people need to accept and embrace forgiveness?
Sep 14, 2:04AM EDT0

When you come to a place of maturity peace is everything, so by  embracing forgiveness you embrace peace.

Sep 14, 5:26PM EDT0
Is forgiving another person just forgetting or letting go of anger? Doesn't that make you weaker?
Sep 13, 1:27PM EDT0

Forgiving is not just about forgetting or letting go of anger. It is a process that comes along with it. Forgiving another person does not make one weak but actually shows how strong they really are.

Sep 13, 3:24PM EDT0
Why do people harbor resentment for a long time?
Sep 13, 8:21AM EDT0

Since people harbor resentment for a long time because what had been done to them has not been acknowledged.

Sep 13, 3:28PM EDT0

How can you deal with the character flaws that keep getting you into trouble?

Sep 12, 11:42PM EDT0

You have to love yourself enough to change the things that are getting you into trouble and set boundaries. Also, you can see a therapist (psychologist) to help you through the process.

Sep 13, 10:54PM EDT0
Why is it so hard to forgive people that have wronged you, or offended you, even when a lot of time has passed?
Sep 12, 11:25PM EDT0

I believe it is because we are stuck with the memory of the hurt and how it made us feel.

Sep 13, 3:19PM EDT0
What advice would you give to someone trying to let go of resentment but not succeeding?
Sep 12, 11:17PM EDT0

I would advise the person to stop rethinking the situation over and over again and see the goodness in the individual no matter how hard it may seem like there is none.

Sep 13, 3:16PM EDT0
Sometimes people are bitter and resentful and lash at you without any reason. What should one do in those circumstances?
Sep 12, 10:14PM EDT0

Stay calm and don't take it personal, they lash out to make themselves feel better so don't make it worse..

Sep 12, 10:23PM EDT0

How do you personally deal with forgiveness? Do you ever battle with anger and resentment?

Sep 12, 4:17PM EDT0

I personally deal with forgiveness by remembering when I have said or done some idiotic thing that hurt someone yet God has forgiven me. He hasn't written me off so how can I do it to someone else? I put myself in the individual's shoes that needs the forgiveness. If I were them, how would I want people to respond to me? There have been times that I have battled with anger and resentment feelings. If I didn't I wouldn't be human. It's  what we do after those feelings that can or may cause more harm.

Sep 12, 9:23PM EDT0

How can one address feelings of anger and bitterness in more healthy and helpful ways?

Sep 12, 2:04PM EDT0

One must identify what gets them angry and allow themselves to feel the emotion.Then one must stop rehearsing in their mind what was done to them.

Sep 12, 9:14PM EDT0
Must one forgive if the person offending you isn't sorry? Must one forgive if a person continues to hurt you?
Sep 12, 1:53PM EDT1

One must forgive even if the person offending you isn't sorry. One must continue to forgive even if a person continues to hurt them. I would further suggest that  the person deal with the other individual with a long handle spoon if it is the same offense. At that points it is clear that they have no regard for their feelings.

How do you hope your book will help people?
Sep 12, 2:12AM EDT0

I hope my book will help people by encouraging communication and how we should interact with people which will promote healing. Instead of separating from one another we must come to the realization that we need each other. We change the world for the better by changing people.
