I got a tweet a while ago:
@SingleMomBooks I have some bitterness in my mind … which I do not want to show in front of my babes n my mom..tell me how! Pls.
I can relate, and I don’t even need to clarify what or who the bitterness is about!
My first thought is to take variables out of the picture and take 100% responsibility for everything. You are where you are, for better or worse, because of decisions you made. When you take this responsibility, you also come into the realization that you get to keep choosing what happens next in your life! You’re in control of your destiny and your future is up to you!
If you’re bitter toward your ex, you chose him. It’s time to sit down and do an exercise called, “why am I grateful for my ex?” Before you stop reading, keep in mind that you’re probably the most grateful for the children you had with him, more grateful about them than anything else in the whole world! If you look hard enough, you can find things you’re grateful for and about, and that will lessen your bitterness.
