How to cope with resentment

Especially hard for people sensitive to subtle psychic organization - they unsettle even such a trifle as rude seller or distraction forgotten to say hello neighbor. Frequent grievances can permanently affect your mood, relationships with family, perception of the world. Once and for all accounts with the offenses impossible, but there is always a chance to not let them destroy your life.
 Resentment - that feeling that you choose yourself. It is never productive, but always destructive. Think about why, in response to someone else's words or actions you take offense; what exactly is particularly unpleasant for you, what strings hurt the abuser in your soul. Perhaps you feel rejected, helpless, weak, and maybe you angry unpleasant truth, and the other just say what you know and so, but admit it would not be desirable.

Common cause offense - high expectations and requirements for others. People rarely meet a stranger notions about them completely, and if their behavior does not fit into an imaginary box, there are indignation, resentment, even anger. Get over the idea that no one is obliged to do as you see fit. If you care to close acted in a certain way - think, and if they know about it at all? People are not able to read minds, and if you do not give clear on what behavior want, they will do what they themselves see fit. Do not be afraid to voice their requests in a correct and accessible way - often people do not even know how little of it actually takes to help you or please you.

Put yourself in the other, think about why he was harsh with you or inattentive - simple, but somehow rarely used way of dealing with resentment. Perhaps this person is not even aware that his actions are unpleasant to you, or does not know how to express their thoughts calmly and politely. It is also likely that he is in a difficult situation and normal interaction with others he simply did not have the strength.

If you understand the motives of the person you will be easier to forgive and forget about the damage you take offense.

Do not rush to repay the offender in the same coin. Consider the response (ask that the other person was thinking, why he did so anyway), or do not respond at all. If you deliberately provoke - so you will not allow themselves to be drawn into the conflict, and if the person did not want anything bad to you, it will certainly find out. Go on about your opponent - means give him achieve his goal, namely to hurt you, break your confidence.

Imagine that your resentment is material, or take a pen and paper and describe all of your emotions, not hiding them away, the whole situation from start to finish. Re-written, crumpled paper and burn it or destroy any other way you can. Imagine that this leaflet you destroy their sense of grievance. You will notice how much easier it will become. If you notice that you become more sensitive when you are under stress - look for ways to deal with it. To do this all means - a healthy lifestyle, sports, relaxation techniques, and various hobbies.
