Bittersweet

       What is the underlying purpose of being bitter? What exactly does it do? Absolutely nothing to or for the person you are actually mad at. And absolutely nothing good for you. Sure, you may know what happens when people feel stressed out. Well, bitterness is like a first cousin to stress. I’m going to give you a few “reminders” of how being upset for a prolonged time affects you physically and socially, and then a few tips on how to ease your pain.

 

Physical

1) Develop an ulcer                                    2) Frequent headaches (or other aches and pains)

3) Effects your heart                                  4)  Inability to focus

5) Elevated blood pressure                         6) Fatigue

7) Uncontrollable and displaced feelings (irritable, disappointed, depressed, moody, etc.)

 

Social

* Loneliness: There is a big difference between being alone and feeling alone. Nobody wants to be around a sour puss- someone who’s always negative, has nothing good to say about themselves or others, can’t move on, and has a constant attitude. {And I’m sure that all of you had at least one person who automatically popped into your minds once reading this description.}

* Suffer from a loss: You simply can’t expect friendships and/or relationships to stay in tact when you are so negative all the time.

 

Ways to Cope & Overcome

+ The power of prayer                                  + Forgive (yourself and others)

+ Forget- don’t just say you will and throw mental darts at people, actually do it.

+ Live for the future and in the future, not the past or else you’ll be stuck in it.

+ Talk it out with the person when you’re not as upset. Don’t let things build up until it becomes a list of issues because eventually you’ll explode- most likely over something trivial.

 

So what did you learn today… bitterness= your life not being lived in the healthy, happy way that it should.
