Simple Question Today

How do I release the anger I feel in my heart for my mom who never acknowledges the years of my life I am giving to her? She lives in her expectation and I live in resentment.

Simple Question Today
by: Anonymous

This is a good question and one I'm not sure how to answer.
I struggle with anger and resentment each and every day that my mom is here.
I do a lot of praying and try to put myself in her place, but then I get angry all over again.

I hope we can both find a way to let go of the negative feelings and find some peace.

All the best to you.

Just say it
by: Anonymous

Frankly, in my case I just came out and said it to my father, told him how bloody lucky he was and how selfish.

He was amazed, it never occurred to him that I had a life of my own that I had to give up for his benefit. I still did the duties but I kept telling him what a pain it was.

He treated his family like crap especially my mother so I had no problem letting it all out.

Find a good friend who will let you vent. I'm in the same situation. Thank goodness for my boyfriend. He listens to me vent almost daily.
