Find it hard to forgive

accreditation

I’m a woman of 28 and find it hard to forgive. I take everything personally, and hold a grudge against people who upset me. I no longer have friends or get along with my family because of this. Deep down,I’m a kind, caring person. But whenI’m upset, I lose it and act to spite them. Please help me deal with my anger; I don’t want to end up alone.

Lack of forgiveness is very destructive. Write down your feelings to process them. Speak to your family about your problem, or seek professional help. A psychologist will be able to help you figure out what triggers this and how best to cope with it. You can also speak to a pastor or counselor at your church.
