I am guilty of resenting those asleep
I hold resentment when I shouldn’t.
I resent the people who are not awake to what’s really going on.
I resent the people who blindly follow orders without question.
I resent my friends too closed-minded to listening to the truth.
I resent my family who has lost a year in building memories with us.
I resent those who allow this tyranny to continue through their own ignorance of the situation.
Some days are better than others.
Some days I am at peace with knowing God is with us, we know how this will end.
Other days I have resentment with the humans who would rather remain ignorant because it’s easier to live that way.
I am not perfect, and never claim to be.
Nor do I expect anyone else to be.
I struggle with resentment and I have been praying to God to help lift it.
I know this is not the fault of those around me, as Jesus said “Forgive them; for they know not what they do.” ~Luke 23:24
Don’t you hate it when you read something and it slaps you in the face like that? It’s like that verse was written just for you.
The majority do not know what they’re doing, and I must forgive them for that.
They do not understand the evil things they are allowing to fester and grow, and I must forgive them for that.
They do not know how the world really operates outside of their simple understandings, and I must forgive them for that.
How can I hold resentment against the people who are clueless about what they’re doing?
I must lighten my heart from resentment and practice more forgiveness to others, for they know not what they do.
I apologize if you have felt this resentment towards you.
I ask for forgiveness as I acknowledge I should not feel this way.
I remain imperfect while trying to be a better person each day.
