One of the most apt things I've heard about holding on to a grievance against another was,"Holding on to resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die." Because people and relationships always mirror us and are a response to how we are vibrating, they've come into our lives for a reason. If you're unduly upset at someone, you can be sure that they've come to heal that blockage to your own peace that you continue to drag around with you. It's always us! It's never another person or situation, though these are convenient places to lay blame. Look inside to see where the real problem lies. The "jerk" that continues to upset us is here to teach us to remove our blocks to love's presence, as A Course In Miracles points out. "Miracles don't do anything, they undo our misperceptions." Let go of the gripe you have against another and you will uncover the gift that their presence is here to bring. Peace will be the result and joy will show up in an area of your life where it never was before.
