Not Taken Hostage

“God, free me from resentment toward them.. bless them in whatever it is you know they may need … may their life be full of health, peace, prosperity, and happiness …” 12 Step Prayer Book 
There is no way I can enjoy this moment when anger is hanging over me like a dark cloud. When I’m finally sick and tired of being angry, I find my part – any part will do – and make a heartfelt apology. I don’t expect it returned or accepted, but if neither occurs, I detach unless and until they want to forgive and/or make amends. I’m not going to be taken hostage by my anger or anyone else’s anymore. I love myself too much, which is why ILML!
