Resentment is an emotion you will experience at least once, if not several times in your life.
Don’t be afraid or ashamed of this negative emotion but be very aware when it rears its ugly head into your life.
Being a high performer is not about being perfect..
It’s about having the ability to handle your negative emotions quickly and swiftly so that you can continue living your most joyful and fulfilling life.
I had to overcome some resentment in my marriage after having my first baby boy. I quickly recognized that I was feeling frustrated and bitter towards my husband because of all the new demands placed upon me as a new mom. I wanted to rid my head and heart of these feelings asap so that I could get back to being the happy, grateful and loving mama I want to be.
How did I do it?
I used a thought process to overcome resentment and named it RAIN.
Making RAIN to wash away the resentment was a great metaphor to feel refreshed, renewed and lift all that frustration out of my life, letting the energy bloom again inside of me.
If you are dealing with some resentment or if it enters your life later on, I encourage you to implement this process to wash it away quickly.
Make It R.A.I.N!
R – Recognize the traits: Become more aware of how you are feeling and why. You have to be aware of what’s going on and get in touch with your emotions.
A – Accept Your Role: What can you do about the role you play. What changes need to be made and what help do you need. Change how you feel about your situation or change your situation. When you decide to fully step into your role it will release so much frustration, victimhood and bitterness.
I – Initiate Gratitude & Appreciation: We get so caught up in our own lives and our own situation that we forget what others are doing around us. Recognize what others are doing well instead of focusing on what they aren’t doing. The gratitude and appreciation you give the more it will come back to you.
N – Nail Down Communication: You have to express yourself, your needs and emotions. Let people know the feelings you are going through and the fears and desires you have. Tell people what they can do to help you.
It’s so draining on your soul to feel resentful and you need to lift that energy off of yourself.
It’s not about being perfect, it’s about recognizing your struggles and working to hard to become better. You got this!
