Cheer up. We all go through things that are not fair: people do us wrong, we didn’t get the promotion, we came down with an illness. You can’t stop life from happening to you, but you can choose how you respond. If you hold on to the hurt, you go around dwelling on the offense, thinking, “Why did they say that about me? Why did I lose that loved one? Why did my friend walk away?” Then, you’re opening the door to bitterness. When you’re bitter, it affects every area of your life. Bitterness poisons your attitude to where you see things in a negative light, you can’t enjoy life, there’s always something wrong. You can’t stop life from happening to you, but you can choose how you respond.
