Regret and Resentment

Regret and resentment bind us with heavy burdens, from which we should be cut loose. Time and human nature would fade them away if we didn’t weave them into a hair shirt to wear against our skin. We gain some gratification from wearing regret and resentment on our backs, but the garment forces us to look backward rather than forward; inward rather than outward. Perfect love casts off regret and resentment, and they vanish. A new life and buoyancy comes to us. We are glad to be alive.
