Resentment, Guilt, and BACON!

How often do we stifle our own happiness due to guilt and resentment? These are two of the most common emotions that can keep us from reaching for the joys in life. Guilt keeps us focused on what "should be" instead of celebrating what is, while resentment leaves us blaming ourselves or others for how things have turned out.


Allowing these two states of mind to cloud our judgement only serves to rob us of any chance at true contentment and peace-of-mind. It is so important to break free from guilt and resentments as well as how you can work towards a more positive mental state, so you can start living happier every day!

Let's start by defining what guilt and resentment are. Guilt is the feeling of remorse or responsibility that arises from doing something wrong or failing to do something right. Resentment, on the other hand, is the feeling of anger or bitterness towards someone or something that has done us wrong.



Now, both guilt and resentment are normal human emotions. But when we hold on to them for too long, they can start to weigh us down and affect our overall happiness. That's where the B.A.C.O.N. plan comes in, and I'll explain what that means.


B- Believe in yourself. The first step to overcoming guilt and resentment is to believe that you can do it. You deserve happiness, and it's within your power to achieve it.


A- Accept the Past. We need to accept that we can't change the past, and that holding on to guilt or resentment won't make it go away. We need to let go of the past and move forward.


C- Compassion. We need to practice self-compassion, which means being kind and forgiving towards ourselves. We all make mistakes, and it's important to treat ourselves with kindness and understanding.


O- Open communication. If there's someone we need to forgive or apologize to, we need to have open and honest communication with them. It's important to express our feelings in a calm and respectful way.


N- New perspective. Finally, we need to shift our perspective and focus on the present and the future. We can't change the past, but we can learn from it and use it as a steppingstone towards a better future.


So, to sum up, guilt and resentment can get in the way of our happiness, but with the B.A.C.O.N. plan, we can overcome them. Believe in yourself, accept the past, practice self-compassion, communicate openly, and shift your perspective towards the future. It won't happen overnight, but with time, patience, and effort, we can all achieve greater happiness and peace of mind.


"Moving on doesn't mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happened and continue living."
