“Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”
BIG SHOUT OUT TO BRADLEY in L.A. for sharing this #FollowGreatFootsteps quote. It’s hard not to resent. I agree that it is a wasted energy and an exercise in futility.
In my opinion, the less resentments we hold the better we age and the healthier we remain.
When I think of Bradley’s Blog name– Insights From A Bipolar Bear . I start hearing Baloo the bear (from Disney’s ‘Jungle book’ ) singing
“Look for the bare necessities”
If you have never listened to this song as an adult. I suggest you do . His philosophy should be given a serious paws for thought ( couldn’t help myself.)
Do you think Baloo could sing this song if he he was still upset he got stung by a bee looking for honey?
Or if he fell asleep under a tree and that bloody bird shat on his head AGAIN – like it was doing it on purpose?
I think you get my meaning.
Bradley – has a wealth of information on living with Bipolar. He was diagnosed at the age of 14 years old with Depression and this went on to him being diagnosed with Manic Depression (Bipolar)
He has every right to be resentful because of his experiences but Hallelujah he realises the waste of harbouring this feeling.
Bradley is always on the look out for GUEST BLOGGERS -so if you have something to write about – get in touch and share your experiences
. It is Mental Health awareness month in the U.K.
So let’s get our voices heard.
Thank you so much for contributing to #FollowGreatFootsteps
